“The 4moms rockaRoo flips the traditional infant swing on its head – literally – with the pivot at the base,” the company explains. “By placing the pivot point underneath the seat, the 4moms rockaRoo maximizes a baby’s motion sensation while delivering a 70 percent smaller footprint and overall size compared to traditional swings.”
Indeed, those familiar with 4mom's mamaRoo smart baby rocker will notice a major design slim down.
The rockaRoo uses motion-control software and sensors to understand your baby’s physical position. This data is used to create unique rocking motions in your choice of five speeds (with thousands of calcuations per second, 4moms boasts) for a more natural feel than fixed-position rockers. There’s even an headphone jack input, so you can connect an iPhone or iPod and play some calming sounds.
The futuristic-looking 4moms rockaRoo is currently available at Babies R Us, buybuybaby and Target. The base model is $159.99 in machine-washable classic gray; plush versions are available for $179.99.
