The newborn to toddler rocker is a portable grow with baby rocker and seat. The modern, sturdy frame includes three different recline positions for newborns, infants, and toddlers. It can be used as a rocking seat or, with positioners in the back, it can be converted to a stationary seat for feeding or napping. Calming vibrations help soothe baby. For playtime, a removable toy bar includes two hanging toys. The soft goods recline in the canopy provides extra comfort for newborns. The frame holds toddlers up to 40 pounds and mom can fold it for portability. For added convenience, the soft goods are machine washable and dryer safe.

Both are equally easy to assemble, taking 5 minutes if you have a Phillips head screwdriver and follow the instructions. Both are easy to shift into the different reclining and upright positions. Besides for the obvious color and animal print differences, here are my observations about the other differences (I'm going to call the other rocker the "toad" one.:
- The arm with 2 dangling toys is fixed in position and cannot swing out on this rocker whereas it's meant to on the toad one. You can of course remove the arm completely but I find it convenient to just leave it on and push it aside when I want to take baby in and out. I also think the toys dangle too close to the baby's face in the fixed position but that's just my personal opinion. Because the immobility of the arm on this rocker annoyed me so much, I tried my own hack. There's a single screw on the bottom of the arm that I loosened just enough to lift the top part of the arm out of the grooves it sits in and let it rotate. It makes the arm a little loose but it's appears to be stable.
- The toad rocker includes a hard rectangular board that slides into the bottom part of the seat to provide extra support. This rocker doesn't have that so the baby is supported by just the fabric.
- This rocker's rails and arms are made of metal, whereas the toad one's are plastic. They both seem equally durable, though I've only had 4-month olds using them for a week. If you compare pictures, you can also see that the toad rocker has an extra set of support beams that connect from the back of the chair to back of the rails.
- Both rockers have "feet" in the front of the rails that stop the chair from rocking too far forward but the ones on the toad one are shorter and don't point as sharply downward. I find that this allows the toad rocker to have a slightly bigger rocking motion without compromising safety.
To sum it up, even though I prefer the look of this rocker more, I'd get another one of the "toad" rockers instead purely based on functionality.
We have a very small house (the reason I put off buying something like this for so long - I wish I'd had it from the beginning), but this doesn't take up that much space and is easy to move around from room to room. She really likes the vibrations and it isn't nearly as noisy as I feared it would be, even on hardwood floors. When I use it on the hardwood floors I can give it a rock and it is balanced so that it will continue to rock on its own a short time (at least in the infant recline that we are currently using). And if I put the kickstands down, it bounces a little, she can even get it going by her own movements sometimes. When I use it on the carpet, I just put her in front of me while I'm sitting on the couch and rock it with my foot. Often times she will nap in it with the vibrations on. I just use a Kiddopotamus Snuzzler for more support.
Not too loud
Doesn't take much space
Battery doesn't drain too quickly (still on the same battery after many hours of using the vibration)
Can use up to 40 lbs
Stoppers on front legs keep it from rocking too far forward
Toy bar is easy to remove and replace
Wish it had a 5 point harness instead of just a 3 point harness. I would have given it 5 stars if it did.
Would be nice if it had music, but not a big deal
The toys aren't very exciting. I usually use it without the toy bar.
One other positive is that the material cleans quite easily. I can spot clean it and throw it in the washing machine. So far i was able to get all stains out. The colors and design are pleasant on the eye.
