Solvej Handcrafted Swing ($220.00)

This swing converts from a baby swing to a toddler swing using the domed leg divider when your toddler is around 3 years old. This makes the swing suitable from approximate 6-months to 6 years (from when the baby can sit up unaided to the weight of 40kg/88lbs.) It is very easy to make the change between baby and toddler versions if you have both a baby and toddler in the home. The unusually long period you and your child can use this swing makes it excellent value for money.
