double outdoor swing??

post #1 of 6

Anyone know if a swing is made that may work from my 11 mo old twins. We have two up now, but I thought I would ask if anyone knew of a double. Please let me know.

I don't know if this is helpful at all, but this pic was taken when my girls were 11 months old, on one of the bucket style swings at a local park.

They actually loved to swing that way for quite a while. Even a few months ago (nearly 2.5 years old) we managed to fit them in for a bit when there was only one swing available. I know they sell this type of swing for home use, though I'm not sure it's exactly the same - the ones I have seen are a little higher in the back than the front, as opposed to the park ones which are the same height all around.

I was really close to buying one of those (like Betsy described) for my twins, who are now 22 months. They aren't cheap, but they seem to be really nice quality. However, my twins can actually handle the belt swings on our swingset, so I guess we won't need to buy one after all. If my children were your children's ages, I'd probably buy one.

Step 2 used to make one - they are sold on ebay, but kinda pricey now, since they aren't made anymore. We LOVE ours! I actually found one at a thrift for $6, and a couple months ago saw one on Craigslist for $20, so good deals are out there - you can also do a search on ebay by distance, so maybe you could at least save on shipping costs.
Here's the kind we have:

Here's the other one they made, it's pretty cute!

I just search "step 2 double swing". Hope that helps!

Thanks all! And OGirlieMama, what a cute pic! I have thought about doing that, I guess I should.

Thanks! You really should give it a try, even if you don't buy one - do it at the park. It makes for cute pictures, and a lot of entertainment for all.
