Growing up in suburban Michigan and living for a short period of time in Georgia, I had lost all faith that people lived in such a relaxed and "old fashioned" atmosphere. However, after moving into our house and small town this past fall, I quickly realized it was still possible. Everyone here seems to know everyone, neighbors offer to share from their gardens and crops, there is no hustle and bustle unless you count the sound of cows moving across their pasture.
Because of this new and exciting part of our life upon us, I was over joyed when Swings and Things agreed to send me one of their Large Swing and Spin Swings for our backyard. Swing and Spin knows that most of the fond memories we have as adults revolve around being outdoors and playing on play grounds in some way. The brand has created a swing that isn't just for one but everyone in your family (or all of your friends).
They remember how much people of the past enjoyed a good old fashioned tire swing. However, they realize that tire swings come with multiple negatives and so instead they created the Swing and Spin (tire) Swing. I was sent over the Large Swing and Spin to put to the test not only as a parent but for the kids to review. I am soooo excited to share this awesome product with you!
The Large Swing and Spin can seat two people at a max of 540 lbs which is amazingly strong. Not only is this something for your children but adults can enjoy it just as much! Right away, Kevin made sure to read the instructions on how to hang the swing properly. While we have a heavily treed yard, we didn't have the right trees in the right spots with strong enough branches to hang it. So Kevin built sort of his own swing set/tree swing area.
This fits the width of two swings so anyone with a regular swing set can use this just as easily without having to build their own. The best part is when you first open this, you can tell instantly the quality made parts which go into making such a strong swing. "Made from UV Resistant Polyethylene", this isn't just going to last one season because of weather or like your traditional tire swing. Using a nickel plated iron ring core, I also know that this is going to hold strong when I let the kids pile on like monkeys and go nuts!
Recommendation: I definitely would recommend this to anyone who has a yard to put it in! You don't even have to have children to make it cool! Plus it fits on either your current swing set or using something else to hold sturdy. I do think its a bit pricey for a single swing but again the quality is totally there and you will probably spend twice as much over the years replacing the swings that cost less anyway!
