This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Edit 15 June 2011:
Since Eclectic Sims is down and I doubt it would return, I have put up my edited one-tile version of the mesh at Sims2Artists.

Snowstorm at Eclectic Sims has some wonderful baby items, some dating back to 2006, like this animated swing for babies.



I am including four frame recolours (fabric parts are repositoried to the in-game crib).

The only drawback (to me at least) is that the original meshes are two-tile. You can make them one-tile easily with this tutorial by Numenor.

The mesh is called SS_InfantSwing_Mesh.package and you will find it under Furnishing-Kids-Nursery items at Eclectic Sims.

Swings are shown with An_na's solid crib fabric recolours here.
Sewing machine in above picture is by Sandy at AroundTheSims2 .
Deco items are from Cocomama's Quilt Shop.
Quilt recolour on wall is by me here .

Files are Compressorized.
Enjoy!

In the Beginning is the title of a Babylon5 movie (my favourite TV show)

Nice but I've tested it and the infant swing (like the infant gym) doesn't work with AL I think because I have all EP and Sp. When a sim want to put the baby in, the sim makes a jump and the baby is on the floor.
I have send a PM at snowstorm to tell him but he does'nt reply

I also have all EPs (as well as MG) and the infant swing definitely works for me. Maybe you have some conflicts - have you tried removing all other CC and trying that way?
The creator last visited this site in August, so I would not count on a reply soon.

Please be more specific, or nobody can help you. Do you have the mesh from Eclectic Sims?

Lientebollemeis, I'm not sure, but from the look of the swing I'd think its size is not suitable for toddlers.

Ok, thank you. It's because I couldn't let my toddler sleep in it and I don't have a baby for the moment. I'll try it out when the newborn arrives :D

I downloaded it, mesh and all, and it is wonderful! However, every now and then it glitches and the baby+cradle are horizontal. Anybody else have this problem??

You mean it changes position just by itself? No, I have never seen anything like that.

Go to Eclectic Sims (link is in the thread text). On the left, find Furnishing, then Kids. Then on the right you see the titles of the sets. Select the top right one called Nursery Items. Then in the bottom part, use the green plumbbob to scroll down until you find 'Infant swing - Animated'. That's it.
