What they say: 

“The Serina 2-in-1 baby seat offers baby a multi-motion ride as it swings from front to back or side to side to comfort baby. With six different swing speeds, a toybar, a night light with four brightness settings and a choice of ten lullabies and nature sounds, the Serina 2-in-1 is able to keep baby both entertained and relaxed. 

“For newborn babies the removable, washable, plush infant body support and seat pad offers supreme comfort by perfectly cocooning baby. 

“The wheels, integrated handle, and compact frame also make moving from room to room a breeze for parents.”

The Joie Serina 2-in-1 is such an amazing product! I was amazed at all the uses it has! My daughter loved the swing and it's so clever that it can swing side to side and forwards and backwards. It was so calming and relaxing for my daughter. It's very clever that it can be plugged into the mains and battery operated if taken outside the home. It was a godsend as it kept my daughter calm and relaxed, and I was able to get on with the much-needed housework! We love love loved it! It's a great unisex design so it can be used as for boys or girls and very handy for baby number 2!

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product made my new mummy role a hell of a lot easier as I knew my daughter was safe and secure inside the swing. Its swinging motion helped her to sleep and rest so I could get on with the stacks of washing and ironing! She is teething so was unsettled so the swing was so compact to move around the house! I took it apart to make it into a rocker and she rocked away in the kitchen whilst I did the cooking and washing up.

The Joie Serina has so many purposes and it's a great unisex design so very handy for my daughter and my daughter’s baby friends when they come to visit who are boys. This product would be first on my list as it had so many great uses and I love the fact that the swing can go in different directions and be turned into a rocker. It had the hanging toys too so was visually stimulating for my daughter and the swinging motion relaxed my daughter to sleep and she loved it!

What changes would you make to this product?

I loved this product and it had so many great uses that I would not change. The hanging toys were lovely but would be nice if there was different sounds or textures in them, for example one could have bells and another could have crinkle paper inside. The product is of great quality and very handy that it can be used with power at the mains or using batteries where as other bouncers are battery operated only.

The Joie Serina has some really handy features. The charger has a usb connection so if batteries do run out it can always be used. Good quality materials used, very solid. Very easy to set up and seat just clips into base. The seat can be picked up and used to carry baby around house. Also has a mobile with 2 toys on it and music which nature sounds where very white noise like, which helps to sooth baby and help sleep.

How did this product make your life easier?     

You can you the seat as a rocker without the base and also means if you need to pop upstairs you can just take the seat off the base and carry your baby up with you. The seat has three positions which meant my little girl could sit up right or recline a little when tired. The classical and nature music were very soothing which helped her fall asleep peacefully.

Would you choose this product to win?

It has lots of positive and very little negative about it. Definitely worth the money, not only can it be used as a swing the seat can be picked up and used to carry baby around which makes life so easy! Along with the other features it's defiantly won me over.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only downside to the Serina is that that the cumbersome base doesn't fold which means it's always taking floor space up, if there was some way the base could be folded it would be perfect!

Knowing now what I do as a first time mum I couldn't recommend the Serina 2-in-1 highly enough. I just wish we'd had it since my little boy was a newborn. It was so easy to put together, easy to use and easy to move from room to room. The only thing that may have made me think twice would have been the price tag but honestly it is well worth the money. The combination of the vibrations, swinging and the nature sounds are perfect to send my little boy to sleep - and he stays asleep longer than before we were using it!

How did this product make your life easier?     

My little boy cat naps, literally 30 minutes a time unless he is being held. Since having the Serina 2-in-1 I can put him down and he will have at least an hour a time! Giving me more to myself or to get some jobs done in peace...amazing! The soothing noises also act as good white noise which is great when I'm pottering around him.

To have the swinging function is absolutely fantastic. Along with either the soothing nature noises or the lullaby tunes and the soft light this really is a seat to have in your life as a new mum! And to be able to move from room to room really easily is great.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would not necessarily change anything about the Serina 2-in1 but I do think that a lock to stop the seat from swinging would be handy as when I have moved the base to a different room the arm moves as well. Also, not necessary, but would be nice, would be a hood that can be moved down when not in use, similar to a car seat. So that baby can have a little bit of darkness in the daytime whilst napping.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this item. When it arrived it was so easy to assemble and only required a few pieces to be put together. It is so easy to clean just like the Joie highchair. It's easy to move around the house especially on wooden floors and kitchen tiles. It is a sturdy contraption which my baby seemed perfectly comfortable in.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This product definitely made my life easier. I had previously bought a bouncy chair but my little girl always moaned when she was in it as she wanted to be held. I would sometimes have to put her in the car seat and rock her back as forth - that's exactly what this chair does and it freed my hands up to get things done!

The Joie SerinaI has a beautiful design and is fit for purpose. My little girl loves it. It makes my life much easier knowing she is comfortable and safe in her rocking chair. The vibrations and various melodies are lovely to listen to too not irritating like some toys I have!

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about this product it would be for it to be able to hold a heavier weight. My girl has just turned 7 months and is at the max weight for it now but she still enjoys using it. It would also be good if there were lights or more toys hanging from it for the money. I hang some of my baby's toys to brighten it up.

Tested by mum Lisa Merrikin for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend the Joie Serina to all my friends and family. The design and build is brilliant, it folds down enough that I can fit in to the boot of my small car. Everything is removable and washable. I also like that the seat pads are cosy and perfect for my baby. He looks so comfortable in it.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Serina has made my life so much easier. My baby is very happy in it, and I can actually sit down and drink a hot cup of tea, without him getting bored, as it has so many features to use. The carry handles are a great thing as it makes it a lot easier for me to move it from room to room.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would definitely choose this over any other. It is a brilliant product, the price is really good. The nightlight is also really good, it comes with four brightness settings, I use setting number two on a night, it is just the right brightness for him.

What changes would you make to this product?

There is nothing I would really change on the Serina, it has everything I and my baby need. 5 classical lullabies, 5 nature sounds, all which are brilliant at calming my little one down. It folds down brilliant, but it is a bit heavy, but you expect that. It's not too bulky, and the colours are lovely.
