Our backyard is an extension of our home. It’s a place where I let my kids play, run free and go wild. When we moved to the suburbs from the city I was the most excited for my backyard. Pretty much four years later – I still get a thrill knowing it’s all mine (and well… the mosquitoes too).
Naturally our swing-set is a source of pride for me. After shopping around until I made myself nuts, I settled on one that has longevity and needed no maintenance. Plus, with the ability to buy new additions each year, it evolves as we do.
This year, I set my sights on the Super Spinner Swing. It spins, it swings, it holds up to 200 lbs (read: I can go on it), and it looked like so much fun! You can imagine my excitement when I was at an event and Play Monster was there to promote it – and gave us one to try! Talk about lucky timing!
As I often do, I set it up when my kids weren’t home so they could have a big surprise when they got off the bus. Their reaction didn’t disappoint!
But wait – there’s more! When I thanked the company and told them how much my kids loved it they said – wait for it – we have an even BIGGER spinner – the Super Duper Spinner Swing! I screamed. This spinning swing is 40” compared to 27” and holds up to 650 lbs (read: I can go on it after eating an entire chocolate cake!).
Both swings are amazing assets to our swing set. They each easily pop into the hooks with two screw locking carabiners and are ready to go in seconds. We keep reconfiguring them for different adventures.
So far my daughter’s favorite is creating her very own Ninja Warrior course.
It’s nice to have both sizes because of my kid’s varying ages. The baby at 2 likes to spin but not too fast. My other two (ages four and eight) like to spin and swing until they can’t walk straight.
Having both gives us the variety of sibling switching or solo rides and endless, endless laughing.
The kids are obsessed with these spinners.
My four year old likes me to twist it as much as it goes, then after it spins – and spins the other way – take him off so he can fall over. I’ve never seen him laugh as hard as when he face plants into our lawn.
This would be an amazing gift for a late summer or fall birthday. It’s the kind of outside toy that can be used in all seasons and really for kids (and adults) of all ages. It can also be swapped out anywhere you have a tire swing for a different spinning experience.
As an added bonus it doubles as a great seat if you need one!
Don’t have a swing set but are intrigued? These amazing spinning swings can still be part of your life if you have a tree! Play Monster sells a Super Tree Swing Hanging Kit with Fully Adjustable Nylon Rope that can be installed on your favorite backyard tree in seconds.
If you’re a parent like me who doesn’t want another toy in your house, you have a swing set or tree in your backyard, and your kids like spinning, you have to check out the Super Spinner Swing and the Super Duper Spinner Swing. You won’t be disappointed! Just don’t eat before you go on it…
