Technology Meets Baby Gear With The Amazing MamaRoo (WIN IT!)

By Nadia Carriere |

What do you get what you take the best in baby gear and add in the latest technology? The mamaRoo or course! If you haven’t heard about this award-winning piece of baby gear, you are really in for a treat!

There are so many bouncy seats and baby swings on the market, offering different accessories, fun features and various patterns, but nothing beats the movement of a parent rocking or bouncing their baby… until now. Over the last couple of months, celebrity parents such as Mario Lopez, Samantha Harris, James Van Der Beek, Nina Garcia and Emily Proctor, as well as countless media outlets have been buzzing about this new battery-free, high-tech baby swing, because for its ingenious design.

Guess what? We are offering you a chance to win one of these babies, after the jump!

Designed to move and sway just like you do, the mamaRoo is programmed with five unique motions (Car Ride, KangaRoo, Tree Swing, Rock-A-Bye and Ocean Wave) with speeds that are fully adjustable, designed to mimic your movements. When 4moms decided to create the mamaRoo, they actually put motion sensors on both moms and dads in order to record the various ways they moved when comforting their babies.

The mamaRoo comes with five built-in nature sounds, but if you are like me and your kids prefer Bob Marley, you can plug in your own tunes with the MP3 hookup on the base. The plush, trio toy ball mobile above is made using styles of the great, classic artists (Van Gogh, Monet and Seurat). The mobile is basically a 2-in-1, because the balls reverse to either black and white or color.

Other features include:

  • Seat reclines to 6 different positions
  • Removable machine washable cover
  • Suitable from birth to 25 lbs
  • 6 month warranty
  • Battery free, plug-in design


You know what is even more genius? We you a chance to win 1 mamaRoo (value $200) in your choice of Red/Charcoal, Orange/Charcoal, Green/Chocolate, Pink/Chocolate, Silver/Charcoal and Black.

    Oh my gosh! I wish I was a baby again. I love the pink and brown one! Pregnant with baby #2 and I wish I couldbuy one! I love the variety of swaying.motions and the mp3 dock…. AMAZING! Although pink and brown is perfect I’m not sure if were having a girl/boy.

  5. vanessa S says:


  6. Benita says:

    OOOH this makes so much sense! The fact that the seat reclines the way it does and moves….like me IS OUTSTANDING! I gotta have the black one!!!

  7. Autumn says:

    Would love this in green/chocolate, but it would probably remind me of mint choco chip ice cream :) I like that it is plug-in instead of battery, but the best feature is that the cover is machine-washable. Oh yeah!

  8. Kristen says:

    Love the unique motions. And my favorite is the black one.

  9. Lindsey says:

    I would choose the Green/Chocolate! I love that you can put your mp3 player right into the Mamaroo! And I love, love, love that it plugs in instead of using batteries! I hate swings that use batteries!

    I tweeted!!!
    lindseygalvez at gmail dot com

  11. Becky says:

    MamaRoo = MamaOoooooo! I’m about to be a first-time mom, and I love the modern, minimal design of the MamaRoo. All the awesome features (like the car-ride setting?!) is just icing on the cake! I heart the silver color too!

  12. Ann says:

    This is great! I would like the orange and I think the best feature is that you can plug in your mp3 player and use your own music.

  13. Tory says:

    Love the MP3 player function, and I like the silver best.

  14. Rena says:

    I love that you can connect your own mp3 player to it.

  15. Nikki says:

    This is the coolest and most modern seat out there. I love the fact that the seat is removable and washable. I think the silver is beautiful!

  16. Jill Newell says:

    I like the silver and black. I am having twins and I don’t know who would enjoy it more me or the babies!!!

  17. OutnumberedMama says:

    I love the green/chocolate color combo

  18. Carey says:

    I love the 5 motions (I wonder if Car Ride really works!?) and the smooth motion. It also looks nice and compact – which is important to me. I like the orange.

  19. Jenny says:

    Definitely the different kinds of motions, but also no batteries!! big plus in my book!

  20. KELLEY PRICE says:

    love the colors-so vibrant! and the fact that it has so many motions-baby would love this!

  21. Mary says:

    There is nothing better than green and brown together, the colors are perfect. I am 4 months in and this blog has turned into my go to resource for…everything. As this is my first I need all the advice I can get. The MamaRoo sounds like the perfect thing for any working mom, I run my own business so having the MamaRoo to serve as soothing arms when I am on the phone would be perfect. The ipod input is great so I can share the Rockabye Baby CD I received from my music teacher brother-in-law. They are these cute Lullaby rendition of rock songs, he got us the Beatles, No Doubt, and my personal favorite Queen.

  22. KELLEY PRICE says:

    i tweeted!!! hope i win…ill take any color!!

  23. Skipper says:

    zomg I choose green/chocolate and I love the “Three toys by classical artists.” Love.

  25. LAURA COLIN says:

    omg i love them all
    but i perfer silver or green

  26. Gloria says:

    I would love the red one. I’ve seen this at Giggle and the swaying motion is amazing! It’s just like how you would sway your baby from side to side (you know – that motion that you keep doing even after your hubby takes the baby. LOL). And it’s so silent!

  27. Charlene says:

    Love this product! This will come in handy when I deliver in March. I love the red/charcoal. I’m going to retweet this to get the word out.

  28. Kendra says:

    I love the Green/Chocolate Mamaroo. My favorite feature is that you can hook your iPod to it.

  29. Maria says:

    I love Pink/Chocolate. For my baby girl, always pink!

  30. AmyRyb says:

    I’d like the silver one. The option of different motions is great, since all babies have a preference! I also like the no batteries feature. I’d always get so annoyed when our hand-me-down swing’s batteries went :(

  31. Sarah says:

    You can hook up your iPod to it?! Awesome! Love the green + chocolate best.

  32. Alexis says:

  35. Lindsay Jennings says:

    I have wanted one of these since they first came out!! My first baby is due in December and we would love to have one for her/him!!

  39. patrice says:

    I like the Green/Chocolate. I like the carride mimic feature the best – who hasn’t driven around the block once or twice to get a newborn to sleep?

  40. Shonna says:

    I have a 3 month old daughter that will NOT let me put her down! I have been saying that someone should invent something that moves like a real person, and this would be perfect for her! I would love either the pink one, or the silver!

  41. Jenny says:

    I love the red! Love the modern design and 5 different modes. Plus the ability to hook up our own tunes? Sold.

  44. Jen B says:

    Silver and Charcoal. Love the sleek design and the natural movement. So much thought put into the creation.

  52. heather says:

    i love the speeds for swing or rest!!

  53. Christina Mastin says:

    Love the red one and that it has so many different features but no batteries would be great!!

  57. LBH says:

    I love the red. And seriously–being able to plug in the MP3 is genius. I also like the aspect of “car ride” without having to pack up baby and go on an actual car ride.. Awesome.

  58. Jeanie says:

    My friend has one, and the different swinging motions are awesome. But I love that you can hook up your own mp3 player to it. :)

  59. Jennifer says:

    I love the solid black and especially the car ride motion. Definitely more green than driving your car to soothe your screaming infant.

  60. kat says:

    pink please! I just love the basic concept of natural movement, that is so wonderful for when you have to put baby down to make dinner (or wrangle a 2 year old).

  61. norah says:

    Orange (or green…heck, I’m not picky!)…I love the modern look and the ipod dock.

  62. Rebecca says:

    I would love this in black (or any color, really). Love that it mimics a parent’s natural motion, because that is PRECISELY the only thing that calms my guy down! He can’t stand regular bouncy seats or swings, help! :)

  63. Vicki says:

    I love the multiple motion options and that it plugs in instead of needing batteries. So funky!

    Just tweeted, see —> @VictoriaKnapp Check out this great contest for a fab and funky baby swing.

  70. Sarah says:

    This is one of the coolest things ever. I really love the fact that it mimics human movement and plugs in instead of using batteries. This would be perfect for my grandson. We are using a lot of red for him so the red/charcoal would be great.
