Best Swings For Babies and Toddlers

All the products below are highly rated.  There are some combo sets with some baby or toddler swings in the Swings For Swing Sets list.

1. Little Tikes 2 In 1 Snug 'N Secure Grow With Me Swing

Little Tikes Baby SwingThis baby swing is very popular.  Additionally it features an easy-in t-bar seat belt system, and later as baby grows up the t-bar can be taken out of the seat.  It should be noted that the maximum weight limit is 50 pounds and the recommended age is 9 months to 4 years old.  On a side note this seat is made for outside, but does not come with anchors.  Most importantly please be careful with the seat adjustments because if you’re not careful baby could end up sideways.  Lastly, it also comes in pink (see below).

2. Step2 Infant to Toddler Swing Seat

Step2 Infant Toddler Swing SeatThis swing fits most backyard swing sets. Secondly it is weather resistant and can be cleaned easily.  Third, assembly is easy and the restraint system should keep a baby as young as 9 months secure.  Additionally this system holds a weight up to 50 pounds and is recommended to age 3.  Lastly you might need to get some chain and two hooks if you want to hang it from the porch.

3. Eastern Jungle Gym Toddler Bucket Swing Seat

Toddler Bucket Swing SeatWhen this bucket seat arrives it is fully assembled and ready to place on a swing set.  Secondly, the seat features a high back for additional support and is great for older toddlers, but I would not recommend for babies.  I know I tried swinging my one year old in one of these right when she turned one and I had to put a lot of blankets around her for support.  Lastly, the swing chains are about 66 inches long.

4. Squirrel Bucket Toddler Swing Seat

Pink Toddler Bucket Swing SeatLove the pink color on this toddler bucket seat.  This seat features a high back for additional support and is great for older toddlers, but I would not recommend for babies (see note on the green one above).  Additionally, the swing chains are about 60 inches long.  Also, it is ready to be added to a swing set, jungle gym or other outdoor playset.  Lastly, the maximum weight it holds is 150 pounds.

5. Costzon Kids Classic Hanging Toddler Swing

swingThe best feature on this toddler swing is the design; It’s unique and creative.  Although it says for ages 6 months to 3 years I would strongly advise not to use it for under a year because it’s generally too big.  It should be noted that it has an adjustable rope length from 51 to 67 inches.  A lot of people are using it indoors by attaching it to the ceiling.  Lastly, this seat also takes a longer time to clean then the plastic or rubber ones.

6. Sesame Street Dozer Toddler Swing

Sesame Street SwingThis swing looks like so much fun!  It can hold up to 50 pounds and is recommended for ages 9 months to 3 years.  I would definitely make sure you are nearby when swinging your little ones in this Elmo swing.  The ropes are 42 inches long and it comes with metal hooks for assembly.
