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
This 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
This 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
When 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
Love 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
The 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
2. Squirrel Combo Bucket and Heavy Duty Swings
They come in three colors: blue, red, or green. The bucket swing is great for babies starting at age 6 months and is good all the way to age 4. The regular swing on the right is great for ages 4 and up. They are 60 inches long and include instructions on how to install them to an existing playset or jungle gym.
Swings For Trees
All the tree swings below are currently highly rated. There are fun unusual tree swings and traditional wood tree swings. A tree swing is great because it brings some great summer fun at not so high of a cost as a swing set.
4. Happy Pie Play and Adventure Wood Nostalgic Tree Swing
Back to the old days, except this basic wooden seat looks a little nice with the rounded edges. It holds weight up to 200 pounds. The length can be from 46 to 70.8 inches, although the height of the play set or tree should not be less than 59 inches. The seat part is 17.32 inches across. You can paint it with other designs if preferred.
5. RedSwing Tree Climbing Rope With Disc Swing
This climbing rope swing also is available in red or blue. It can hold up to 330 pounds, and it is 6.5 feet long and attaches to a tree or play structure. It should be noted that is recommended for age 3 and up. Lastly it cannot be shortened, so measure before purchasing if trying to use it for a play structure.
