- Fisher-Price has recalled about 42,000 Smart Response Swings for
in-home inspection and repair. It is possible to misassemble the seats of
these swings so that they appear secure, but are not. If the seat of the

forward, including four reports of babies hitting their heads on the floor.

The Smart Response Swing is an indoor infant swing for use from birth until
baby can sit up unassisted. The swing operates in response to a sound sensor
and plays music. The metal legs of the swing are either blue or beige, and
the seat is either beige or white. The Fisher-Price logo appears on the
seat's tray. Product numbers 79644, 79645 or 79647 are molded onto the back
of the seat.
Discount department and juvenile product stores nationwide sold these swings
from December 2001 through March 2002 for about $70.
Consumers should stop using swings immediately and call Fisher-Price for
help in inspecting the seat to make sure the seat is properly attached. If
the seat is not properly attached, a free replacement seat and revised
instructions will be provided. For more information, call Fisher-Price at
