Those who are sensory challenged often use toys that spin, swing, or bounce to stimulate their sensory system. Swinging is fun for all ages and abilities and is a great tool for self-regulation or sensory feedback.
Our Nest Swing can swing from side to side, round in circles, and works indoors as well as out. The basket style seat also helps users with sensory integration as they can safely see the ground ‘moving’ below them. The ropes are soft and adjustable. The foam surround ensures the swing is comfortable to use.
Frame sold separately.
Available in Nautical (Natural Coloured Rope and Net) or Funhouse (Red).
Like it. Bigger than I thought it would be-dominates the room, but allows us to use for gentle adult vestibular stim as well as for children. We did strip out the threads from one of the internal nuts on the side bars because they were poorly aligned. Quite a hastle drilling out the old nut and putting on a replacement. Still in all, we feel this is a cost effective
way to provide vestibular stim. Dennis
Information that would have been useful to have prior to purchase includes the weight limit and age limit, though we all know how tricky age guidelines are when talking about children with LD and developmental delays. Would also like to point out that the description doesn't mention which of your swing frames it's compatible with, or that quick release clips are included, or how many suspension points it requires.
Still, reasonably simple to assemble and being greatly enjoyed by my disabled teens siblings (as he is 52kg). I'm not sure how long the dense foam cover around the metal circular frame will last - looks like it might get scrapped and deteriorate over time, but I could be wrong. The net is a bright red colour, looks sturdy and the swing as a whole is visually appealing. The longer you set the ropes then the closer to the ground the nest will be, so the further it will swing. As long as the rope lengths are equal then it swings smoothly backwards and forwards, which is delighting the kids playing on it right now. We have it on one side of your double swing frame - I think if you wanted to swing side to side in it or around in a circle then it would have to be suspended from the two middle hanging points (leaving an empty suspension point either side of it on the double frame) in order not to hit the A frame at either side, so I don't think these movements would be safe if you were using the single frame.
I think it will bring a lot of enjoyment to younger/smaller children, but the description says adults can use it too - which they can *if* they weigh under 50kg (7st 12lb). Misleading description, but a good product.
I bought this swing nest for my grandchildren, and know they will have hours of fun on it. I thought I could put this item together myself, but then realised it needed a man's strength to put it all together, so my son in law did the job for me!!
This company deserves more than 5 stars !!! I have been so impressed with buying from this company, from my initial enquiry to the point of receiving this item. Tim has always been so helpful. I shall definitely be back to buy more items.
We bought the nest swing to replace the two swings on a wooden "Plum" wooden swing and slide frame from B&Q. It was easily exchanged replacing the 2 swings for the nest swing. We used the outer two clips of the four clips for the nest swing and this was wider enough. Highly recommended and we bought this for a 12 year old boy and it is well used.
We purchased this swing for my Autistic 10 year old son. He hates going out to the park, too many noisy kids! We ordered the swing (with the single frame) on the Thursday and it arrived on Friday morning! My son loves being able to have fun in his own garden with out the stress of having to see other people. I would highly recommend this swing and wouldn't hesitate to buy from TFH Special Needs Toys again.
I would of give 5 stars as I was happy with the nest swing but was disappointed that in the brocher it shows a blue nest swing with a red net but we have been given a horrid beige net which actually lets it down looking wise so it only deserves a 3 star
