1. A child motion device comprising:

  • a frame assembly configured to rest on a floor surface;

    a drive system defining a generally vertical axis of rotation; and

    a support arm supported above the floor surface by the frame assembly and cantilevered from the axis of rotation, the support arm having a driven end coupled to and movable by the drive system, the drive system configured to pivotally reciprocate the support arm through a partial orbit around the generally vertical axis of rotation and to accept a child supporting device for movement with the support arm,wherein the arm travels within a travel plane that is tilted at an angle of greater than 0 degrees relative to the floor surface such that the child supporting device reciprocates through an arc that has a mid-point positioned nearer the floor surface than extreme ends of the arc.
