At a glance
The Tiny Love 3 in 1 Rocker Napper is about as versatile as multi functional baby rockers come. A superb baby rocker suited for many situations.
Tiny Love have created a rocker that is adaptable to quite a few of your baby’s needs and in doing so makes your life quite a bit easier. This stylish, well made rocker, comes in four different colour schemes for the standard model. Red and beige, blue, grey and turquoise and the vibrantly striped flow. There is a second model of the rocker called the Cozy Rocker Napper. The Cozy rocker Napper has a built in canopy to shade your little one and comes in a pale blue-grey colour.
As the name describes there are three core functions or modes of use for the tiny love three in 1 rocker. Those are Rock and play, 180 degree napper and A versatile chair. Each function corresponds with the three recline positions which the bouncer can be easily adjusted to. Upright for the chair, reclined for the rocker and flat for the napper.
Fold out foot supports stop the napper from rocking so it can be used for the chair or napper. A nicely designed feature is that as you recline the chair to the napper mode the foot wall of the napper rises to surround the baby in a small cot like design.
A vibration function is included for soothing your baby to sleep which for the napper is a great addition. The attached toy has a music and lights function for keeping your little one entertained. The toy plays seven different melodies.
The napper is designed specifically for your baby to take a sleep in it. So the base is quite well padded and provides a comfortable environment for your baby. There is also a small baby insert which provides extra comfort for new babies.
A three point safety harness secures your baby safely in the Rocker and is secure no matter which mode (Chair through to Napper) you choose.
Ease of Cleaning
The seat covers and insert are fully machine washable and can easily be removed in order to wash.
Ease of Assembly
Unfortunately the 3 in 1 rocker napper is not that easy to assemble. The process takes a little while and the instructions are quite complex. Watching the video below will certainly help. The rocker itself requires 3 AAA batteries for the light up musical toy and 1 C battery for the vibration unit.
Age Range and Usage
The Tiny Love 3 in 1 Rocker Napper Can be used from birth up to the age of 12 months which is roughly up to a maximum weight of 18 kg or 40 lbs.
Assuming you buy for a newborn baby getting 12 months usage out of this bouncer is above the average usage in months compared to other rockers on the market. See Baby Rocker Comparison Table.
Value for Money
In looking at value for money, consider the price against how long you will get usage out of the rocker.
At the time of writing the cost of this rocker coming in at £69.99 puts it in the middle bracket of the price range (between £40’s and £80’s). As indicated on the age range you should get at least 12 months usage out of the product and so, simply put, a cost of £69.99 for 12 months gives you a usage cost per month of £5.83 which is a low usage cost per month score.
As an extra value consideration you could also save on the cost of buying a Moses basket because due to the napper you wouldn’t need one. So if you consider the quality, comfort of the napper and it’s play features this rocker still comes out as a good value for money buy.
- 3 great seat positions
- Vibration function
- Napper could replace a Moses basket
What to watch out for:
- Doesn’t fold flat
- Takes up quite a bit of space
Overall the Tiny Love 3 in 1 Rocker Napper is great value for money. It’s a well made and good quality product with a much longer than average usage life of 12 months. This means even though it has a fairly high price tag it has a low usage per month cost and with 3 core functions you get a lot of rocker for your money. If you are short on space you can also avoid getting a Moses basket since the napper can provide that space for baby to rest in. This is a good all round rocker.
