USERS SAID: "I thought I would get this so my kiddos could have a cute swing for the yard. Little did I know they would be so obsessed with this swing they would never come back in! The two-year-old holds onto the netting so when big sister pushes him to outer space, he gladly can lay down (it's huge) and hold on for dear life. He thinks it’s the best thing in the world and could swing all day."
