This Solvej swing is an attractive and safe baby swing, convertible to a toddler swing, for a product that grows with your child and will bring joy for many years. Skillfully crafted with only the best materials, it is for use indoors and out. The timeless natural design makes it an enduring classic you can be proud to hand on to future generations. 

Solvej swings are proudly made in New Zealand with a business model to support local rural communities.

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.

Note these are shipped to you direct from manufacturer.

All these features plus a 9 year guarantee makes this swing a great investment for you and your child.

The seat is 26cm x 26cm/10.5 x10.5 inches and the sides are 26cm/10.5 inches high. Front and back 28cm/11 inches high.

Instructions

Hanging instructions Baby Toddler Swing

The baby and toddler swing can be mounted in doorways or/and on beams, ceiling joists, verandas, pergolas and swing stands or the like. Screw 2 screw-eyes approx. 500mm apart. To have the screw-eyes wider apart than the swing itself makes it swing straight.

Make sure the holes in the eyes are facing forward so the carbine hook rolls in the eye instead of grinding.

Adjust the height with the sliding ropelocks.

This swing can be hung from, up to a height of 2.3 metres in the Baby mode,where you can pop them in and out easily and 2.3 metres in the toddler mode closer to the ground, without extension ropes. (note this is the hanging height not the length of the ropes) For any higher extension ropes will be needed.

Check the ropes, knots and attachments regularly for evidence of deterioration and replace if weakened. The sun breaks down all rope fibres over time. A safety surface under the swing is recommended. Do not hang over concrete, asphalt or any other hard surface.

6 months to 6 years

The baby and toddler swing is suitable for a baby from when it can sit upright unaided (approximately 6 months) to 6 years old or 40 kg/88 lbs. Always support your baby well with cushions etc. until your baby grows into the swing. Please remember a young baby should always be swung gently. Always use the safety belt. Only use under adult supervision.

Converting Instructions

When your child is over the age of 3 the baby and toddler swing can be converted to a toddler version by undoing the leg divider and doming it around the strap under the swing (see picture). adjust the height with the sliding rope-locks so the swing will hang 350-450 mm/14"-18" above the floor or ground. This enables your child to get in unaided by sliding the front bar up, sitting in and sliding the bar down again.

Baby and toddler swing can now be used as long as your child fits in,  approximately 6 years depending on the size of the child (inside measurement 260x260x260)

Where can I hang a swing?

There are many choices for hanging your swing either indoors or outdoors. You will need to be sure that the point of hanging is strong enough for the weight to be used in the swing and there is enough space around the swing for it to operate safely. With the appropriate hardware your swing may be hung from timber, concrete or a tree. Popular choices are inside from the ceiling, verandas, pergolas, trees and existing swing frames. Having a swing in your living room is always great for family entertainment. 

How can I hang my swing from a tree?

It is important to make sure that the branch you would like to hang the swing from is strong enough to take the weight of the person and the force of swinging. The branch needs to be horizontal to the ground so the swing will swing straight. Solvej Tree Hangers make it easy to hang your swing. Always check the hanging height to ground to make sure the ropes are long enough for the position. Contact Solvej directly to purchase Tree Hangers.

Where can I hang my swing inside?

Inside you will need to hang it from a strong structural point in the ceiling, a beam, rafter or door frame. The safest way is to use 2 stainless steel screw eyes in and clip the swing to these using the stainless steel carbine clips that come with the swing. For specific installation instructions see your swing instructions.

Care Guide

CANVAS
Our canvas is super easy to clean. Spot wash by brushing with a solution of natural soap in lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove soap and air dry.

For stubborn stains or suntan lotion, use fabric spot remover according to the remover instructions.

Solution-dyed acrylic does not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric. To clean mildew stains, prepare a mild solution of 1 cup
bleach and 2 capfuls of natural soap per gallon of water. Spray on entire area and allow the solution to soak in. If necessary, scrub vigorously with a sponge or clean rag. Sponge thoroughly with clean water and air dry.

For more information and specific stains go to www.sunbrella.com and under outdoor fabric search for cleaning instructions.

WOOD
Timber naturally goes grey if left outdoors. If you'd like to slow down the greying in the weather, oil often with any suitable non toxic oil. If you are not using your swing for long periods of time we recommend taking it inside to keep it looking great. 

Indoor-Outdoor

This swing has been designed for both indoor and outdoor use with carbine hooks and screw eyes for easy transition between the two. Made from natural durable timber, rot proof canvas, 0mm yachting braid and stainless steel fittings the swing is well equipped to handle the outdoor elements. 

Hanging Height

This swing can be hung up to a height of 2.4 metres, or 7' 10"( to cover both baby and toddler mode*), without adding extension ropes. (note this is the hanging height not the length of the ropes)

*In Toddler Swing mode the swing is low enough that a child can climb in and out themselves. 

Safety

It is an extremely safe swing for your baby with its safety belt and closed hooks and screw eyes. The beads are coloured with non-toxic paint. It conforms to the safety standards of Australasia and North America. 

Check the ropes, knots and attachments regularly for evidence of deterioration and replace if weakened. The sun breaks down all rope fibres over time. A safety surface under the swing is recommended. Do not hang over concrete, asphalt or any other hard surface.

Please remember a young baby should always be swung gently. Always use the safety belt. Only use under adult supervision.
