I adore this swing! The first time I saw it I knew our dolls had to have it, and it looks even better in person.
I had a bit of difficulty getting Jess in the swing the first time I tried it, but after working with it for about a minute she sat/reclined perfectly, and I haven't had any trouble sitting any other dolls in it since. I can get dolls in it sitting up with their eyes open and reclining back with their eyes closed as well.
Here is the only picture that I have of it at the moment, but I will try to get some more.
I don't think the bar obscures the dolls' faces. If I had taken this picture from Felicity's eye level you probably could have seen her entire face.
