Swinging can be enjoyed by people of all ages, the gentle sway reminds us of being rocked.
Swings and hammocks are great for people who have Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, or those on the autism spectrum. The parachute swing helps people learn body awareness, balance, motor skills, and spatial awareness. It creates a fun space to, swing, spin, or lie down enjoying the movement of the swing.
The portable hammock/swing is made of 210D Nylon Taffeta material, and the hardware and the accessories provided are durable, with a max load-bearing capacity of up to 181kg
The swing can be set up within minutes and can be used indoors or outdoors. It folds away in a small, lightweight bag.

Make sure that your swing is no higher than 50cm when in use.
Monitor children at all times.

– You will need something strong to hang it from, we bought a heavy duty eye hook from Bunnings (I think that’s what they’re called) and screwed it into one of the beams in our ceiling. You can also put them in door frames if you’re worried about the strength of your ceiling.
Buying two hooks will give you added strength, then you’ll be able to choose how ‘open’ you want your swing to be (as there is a rope and carabiner for each side of the swing).
I’ve seen other shops selling metal bars for hanging swings if you’re worried that hooks aren’t strong enough – you install them inside doorframes (you can probably find them through google).
