We have active boys age 6 and 9. They both love this as do their friends. Easily hung it from a tree--branch does not have to be entirely level. Assembling the swing seat does require 2 sets of adult hands.

We all love this swing! We range in ages of 4 to dont ask! Even grandma comes over and lays on it like a hammock! Our traditional swing set has had no use since we put this up. The only thing that I would warn against...Shipping. It doesnt come directly from them and it does take extra time in getting it. Plan accordingly. It is still worth the wait.

The product itself is great. High quality, strong construction. I expect it to last quite a while. The follow through and customer service at Hearthsong is another matter. This was to be a Christmas gift. It was listed as delivered while it was not. WHen I called to check on it I was told it was on back order and would not arrive until February. I had to request an email confirming that fact. Then I was emailed and told it would arrive on Dec. 28th - So I told my daughter Santa was making a special delivery to our house because it was so large and it would be there when we got home. NOT SO. No EMail. WHen i called about it customer service rep sounded tired and as if this was such a common issue she could not be bothered to be more concerned. I called again in three days. New rep says I am being assigned a special rep and that this person will send me an email with a tracking number and that it was definitely on the truck. 4 days later NO EMAIL. NO PACKAGE. I gave up. My daughter no longer believes in Santa or his lying liar hole. Package arrives out of the blue over a week later. The bad thing is that they seem to be the only people who have this particular product online so I suppose they can do what they want if you really want it. Just wish it hadn't been slated for a Christmas gift.

I bought this swing for our kids last year for Christmas. We had a regular disk swing that the kids hated. Let me tell you....his swing is going non-stop! The kids love it because more than one can get on. It was easy to hang and the only problem we have had is the neighbor kids being in our yard constantly!!!! Would definitely recommend it.

Best gift I ever gave my grand children. 2-3 kids easily fit on it. Grand daughters did want it put away once because they said that's all their friends wanted to play with when they visited. They are 9 and have a 3 year old brother that loves it too!

We have had this swing for a year and it's the one thing in the yard that the kids still want to consistently play with! (We also have a really long zipline and a slackline.)Our kids are 13 and 10 and they love it even at that age, but our young friends love it, too. Ours swings really high and you can lay on your belly and back and pretend you are flying, or just lay on it and gaze up at the tree.

This swing is so much fun! The kids can't get enough of it and neither can the adults! This works best when it can be hung from an even branch or board. It is sturdy and the assembly was straightforward but does require an extra set of hands! I would highly recommend this swing. It is so so much fun!

I purchased this swing 2 years ago and it remains one of my chidlrens' favorites. I used it to upgrade our large wood playset in place of two swings that were there. It's very large and we use it quite low to the ground as my children like to stand on it and swing. I've seen as many as 4 children of diffferent ages, working together, some sitting and some standing and pumping, having the best time. My youngest son has used a platform swing in occupational therapy and I find this a wonderful hoome alternative before and after school. It's a great option for children with sensory issues as well as neurotypical kids. And although you are supposed to take it inside in the winter, we've found swinging in the snow rather awesome. Highly recommended.

My kids are getting older, but they and their friends will still go outside and play on this swing when they won't play other things outside. It is quite sturdy. We were able to get it over a large tree branch by throwing it over with weights. The branch slopes upward and I was worried that the side higher up would slide down, but once you have it anchored on the limb it really doesn't move. Everyone notices it and asks where we got the swing.

We happened to be in a neighboring town and saw a family enjoying this swing. We asked and they told us where to purchase. We have a big old oak tree in the back yard. The swing went up easy. Perfect swing for a couple of kids at a time. Our grand kids can't wait to come for the next visit.

We bought this for our 7 and 5 year old who have been asking for a backyard playset. We bought this instead bc what they really wanted was swings. They push each other on it endlessly and then lie on it together too. It's so peaceful to stretch out on it and look up at the sky. I love that two can fit on it and that the hammock structure makes me feel very safe to have my 5 year old on it at higher heights. LOVE it.

This was the best gift from Santa this year. My kids (6 and 9) and all of the neighborhood kids love it- we have it hanging on our front porch and it is always occupied. The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is the rubber foam covering the frame of the swing has ripped in several places. The first rip down to the metal frame occurred within hours of first use. We have to use electrical/or duct tape to reinforce it. Otherwise, Awesome swing!

Saw this in the catalog and considered getting it for the kids for Christmas but was hesitant due to price (I also got the round-and-round swing). I finally bit the bullet for their upcoming birthdays, and I want you to know that it's worth every penny. My teen loves lolling about in it and my 9-year-old twins are outside til dark! Bravo Hearthson!

This swing is just what we needed. We have a huge oak tree in our yard that we've had a swing with the safety bar (for babies and young children) hanging in the tree for many years. As the grandkids have grown, they no longer fit in the baby swing. When we put this swing up, they were so excited, we had to feed them outdoors because they didn't want to get too far away from their new swing. It's sturdy, safe, accommodates two children easily, and is doing a good job of winning 'favorite grandparents' status for us. Excellant swing, don't hesitate to buy it.

The swing is sturdy and very large. The rope length is adjustable but the length you select doesn't hold-needs to be adjusted every few days as it slips. Because the swing surface is flat, kids want to sit, stand, or lay down. If they lay down when the swing is twisted to spin, the force of the spin seems to throw their face into the padded bar. We've had some fat lips from hitting the bar. That's more from position than te swing itself but I wanted to add that the swing shape lends itself to lots of ways kids try to use the swing. My daughter loves the swing. I personally wish we had the new circular rope swing instead as the cupped shape looks safer.

I was looking for a swing that would appeal to my 9 year old who has become a little bored with our existing swingset. It has been a huge hit! I hesitated to buy this swing since we don't have a tree large enough to hold it, but we were able to attach it to our existing swingset frame. My 7 and 3 year olds also love the swing.

This was the best present from Santa this year. The kids (5 to 11) love it, their friends love it, and frequently kids we don't know play on it. Very stable platform and no safety concerns beyond just being a swing. Small design problem. The swing is awesome for "spinning". When the ropes are twisted together, a lateral force is applied to the point where they are attached to the swing frame. This causes the edge of the mounting holes to cut into the ropes. I had to restring the frame to eliminate that problem (photo should be attached) The fact that I did rework it is a testament to how much fun the kids have with this swing.

The swing is hanging from a tree.. and my 3.5 yr old boy loves it... I send him really high and he holds the knotted rope and just laughs the entire time... the sitting area sinks down a little so it provides a perfect little seat ... all my friends who have seen the swing love it!! This one was marked from mom and dad.. didn't want santa getting credit for this awesome swing!!
