- High back on the baby toddler swing seat gives excellent back support for your child as they swing
- Assembly instructions are excellent, easy to follow and can be done in an hour or less
- Hanger brackets are made from galvanised steel and are treated for rust prevention.
- Ropes are kind to children hands and there are no metal chains or finger pinching to worry about.
- Will last a lot longer than baby metal swings as the frames will not rust so you can save money in the long run.
- Harness strap on the swing seat can be adjusted and provides excellent security for your child as they swing.
Main Cons Outlined:
- If it is for your last child, in time they will grow out of it and it cannot be used in the future so there is limited time use from it.
- Price when compared to the metal swing sets is a lot higher but then again that it the price needed if you wish to provide the best experience and quality
- Small level of maintenance work will be needed annually to ensure the wood is fit for purpose be it sealants or a wood stain.
- Additional skill and work is needed for the installation of the anchors into concrete holes – you may need a handyman on standby if you cannot do this yourself
- If you child is 2 or over, then you really only have 1 year or less to use it.
- Minor occasions of some small parts reported missing but generally all the parts are included
