Equal parts floating play space and swinging fun, our platform swing is the perfect place for hanging out with a friend. It features rope and a sturdy padded steel frame in four pieces that assemble into a 40" x 30" hanging platform; holds up to 250 lbs. Requires two adults for assembly (hanging hardware not included). Sorry, gift wrap not available.

Comments about Product: 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.
Comments about Product: This was a Christmas present for my four children from their grandparents.(ages 9,9,5,3) They will play together outside for hours! They really enjoy it! I love that it gives them an outlet for their energy by taking turns pushing one another. This was a great buy! I would recommend it highly!
Comments about Product: 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.
Comments about Product: 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.
Comments about Product: 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!!
