The Horse and Cart toddler swing, a safe enclosed swing for the youngest member of the family to enjoy!
Made from beautiful English Oak, the Horse and Cart toddler tree swing is great fun for any toddler between the ages one and four to enjoy. It’s fun design will send any child’s imagination wild, whilst most importantly being safe and comfortable to use. The Horse and Cart swing provides the perfect stepping stone between a fully enclosed baby swing and a child’s first normal rope swing.
The swing itself
The Horse and Cart toddler tree swing is handcrafted from English Oak and utilises stainless steel fixings and fittings. Designed to accommodate children from approximately 18 months – 4 years of age. The seat itself is gently curved at the front, with high sides and slightly higher back rest, this all allows children to use the swing comfortably whilst being held safely in place. The handle bar is shaped as a horses head, making it interesting for a child to use and hold onto. Generous rounding on all edges of the swing make it comfy to use.
For younger children there is the option of an added safety strap to stop the child from sliding back and forward to much on the seat, the strap also prevents younger children from climbing out.
14mm synthetic hemp ropes are used to hang the Horse and Cart toddler swing. The ropes are extremely strong, whilst being soft to touch. Unlike natural hemp may, Synthetic hemp wont rot making them perfect for use on a tree swing. Both hanging ropes are spliced and cut by hand in our Suffolk workshop to your desired lengths. The ropes pass through Stainless steel eye bolts, these eye’s are fitted to the swing in certain ways to reduce the risk of the swing tipping over.
The Horse and Cart Toddler swing can be personalised with letter carving on the back rest of the seat. A name, phrase, date or special message can be added to the swing to make it a truly personal piece. The back rest is curved at the top, so we carve on a gentle curve too to match. Or if you would prefer we can carve in a straight line. A proof image is sent to be agreed upon before we actually carve the swing, this is to ensure you are getting exactly what you would like.
Our range of tree swings are all finished in exterior Danish Oil as standard. There is also the option to have them Satin Varnished or left bare sanded. Danish oil and satin varnish both enhance the natural beauty of the swing, as well as providing a little extra protection from the weather. Alternatively you could have the swing left bare sanded so it can weather more rapidly. The weathering process will eventually turn the swing a lovely silver/grey colour.
