  1. Checking out wood type swings online and just came upon this review by accident. My boys love wooden swings more so than the metal as they tend to warp in time when the heavy rain sets in. Personally we would go for Soulet Garrigue Double cradle with a see saw swing set and its good to know all the dimensions here as our garden is a little on the small side. Good to know also that the cradle can handle 70kg as I was unsure about that plus the Argos price is actually lower than I expected, I didn’t even realise Argos has these in stock, good to know so thanks for flagging it up

    • No problem – Yes, Argos have them in stock at some of the best prices I have seen anywhere else so it is definitely worth checking them out further when you have the time. Regards, Ryan

  2. Swings can be alot of fun and are must haves for kids. But a low quality swing can be disastrous and fatal. Thereby incurring financial and emotional loses.  So your review focused on Comparing the Soulet Piment, Soulet Pinede and the Soulet Garrigue models, will bring us up to speed on the pros and cons of considering these products for purchase.  That leads to my making my choice. Out of them three, I prefer the Soulet Garrigue Double Cradle and Seesaw swing set, best. Because of its aesthetic design, durable and robust glider and most of all, the cradle passenger seat.
