  • Gentle swinging only as it will wobble quite a bit
  • Parts have been missing with some buyers so it needs to be double checked on arrival
  • Some parents complained about the screws not fitting correctly and that it was a little flimsy and cheap looking
  • Need to be careful using indoors as you cannot anchor it to the ground in your house – again gentle supervised swinging.
