What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

Good points

• Rocking/bouncing motion.
• Easy to move around because it feels light.

Bad points

• Serious safety failure: Inadequate breathing zones at end sections and non-breathable bands are too wide, a suffocation risk if baby rolls face first into them.
