5 Best Baby Swings

Swing sets are great developmental garden toys, and swinging has numerous benefits for growing kids, such as focusing their attention, improving physical awareness and enhancing mood on those particularly grumpy days! But before we get onto some of the best baby swings on the market, let’s take a look at some of the great benefits they could provide your little ones.   

Physical awareness

A stretchy swing can stimulate kids’ Golgi tendon organs, whose function is to detect changes in muscle tension. This phenomenon helps young children establish vestibular awareness (i.e. balance and posture) while learning to comprehend the world from different planes of motion; both of which are crucial aspects of a child’s development.

Focus and attention

If you notice the kids’ attention dwindling during homework time, a few minutes on the swing could put them back on the road to acing that assignment. Swinging for just a few moments makes kids more alert due to an increase in blood flow to the brain, which raises endorphins and awakens sleepy minds.

Mood Boost

Swinging raises endorphin levels, which in turn, enhances mood. Think about it, when did you last see a person get off a swing grumpier than when they got on?

Having covered some swing set benefits, we’ll now take a look at five swings guaranteed to provide them.
