Wooden Baby Swing £49.99 @ Argos
Obviously when I say wooden baby swing I don't mean this is a swing for wooden babies, that would be a bit weird!
I had one of these swings 16 years ago when my eldest was tiny – except our swing seat (which was exactly the same) was hung from one of the mature trees in the garden.
It’s a universally accepted fact that everyone likes to swing no matter how old or young they are and babies find swinging particularly soothing, I've got a picture of my daughter looking very sleepy in it when she was nine months old too; both of them loved the tree swing.
This outdoor baby swing comes with a very sturdy wooden frame so you don't need to worry about finding a handy tree to hang it from; the timber is FSC certified (so is from a sustainable source) and comes with a five year manufacturer’s warranty against wood rot and insect damage.
The maximum user weight for the outdoor baby swing is 25kgs and it’s assembled dimensions are L120 x W104 x H124cm; you should also allow about a 2m perimeter around it too, just to make sure everyone stays safe.
You can't collect this from an Argos store - probably because it's heavy - but home delivery will only take up to seven days and cost you between £5.95 or £8.95 if Argos class it as a large item (I can't find anything to say whether they do or not).
