This Solvej swing is an exclusive and attractive baby and toddler swing for the home environment, indoors and out, skillfully crafted with top quality materials.

The swing converts from a baby swing to a toddler swing using the domed leg divider when your toddler is around 3 years old. This makes the swing suitable from approximate 6-months to 6 years (from when the baby can sit up unaided to the weight of 40kg/88lbs.) It is very easy to make the change between baby and toddler versions if you have both a baby and toddler in the home. The unusually long period you and your child can use this swing makes it excellent value for money.

It is an extremely safe swing for your baby with its safety belt and closed hooks and screw eyes. The beads are coloured with non-toxic acrylic water bound paint and the lacquer which comply with DIN EN 71 part 3 standard for toxicity and DIN 53160 for sweat and saliva resistance.

This swing has been designed for both indoor and outdoor use with carbine hooks and screw eyes for easy transition between the two. The Solvej Swings are made from Matai(Prumnopitys taxifolia), a native and endemic tree to NZ. The Matai used is salvaged timber, along with rot proof canvas, 10mm yachting braid and stainless steel fittings the swing is well equipped to handle the outdoor elements. Conveniently designed the swing packs down flat for easy storage and transport.

Benefits of swinging

The most obvious benefit is that swinging is fun and exciting. The feeling of being weightless for a split second at each end of the pendulum, feeling the wind as you accelerate down, hitting the bottom of the pendulum in full speed with the extra g-force on your body is exciting. To laugh and be happy is most beneficial to both our physical and mental health.

There are some hidden benefits that the children won't know about but we as parents can appreciate;

Eye Development
Focusing: The development of changing the depth of focus has already started at 6 months and is basically completed during the baby's second year. Swinging is one of the most excellent ways of helping to develop this ability and exercise it as the baby is moving back and forth constantly changing the depth of focus.

Balance
Eyes and ears are major organs when it comes to balance. When swinging it is not only the eyes that are trained and exercised but also the fluid in the inner ear is constantly swirling back and forth, which is great for the development of balance. When swinging your baby is not only leaning front wards and back wards she/he is also moving back and forth and up and down.

Coordination
To get oneself swinging only by moving ones body is harder than it looks. At the age of about 4 years old a child can swing by themselves and swinging is super for learning and training full body coordination.
