Hey guys,

I am looking for an outdoor baby swing with frame etc for my 12 month years old baby. And ideas on any good swings for a good price? Which one to get?

Many thanks

    Hi I have the kids active one which I think is Argos (I got it from freecycle) It has a massive footprint, i don't remember my last one being that big

    they do say til 3, but I found by 2-ish they were simply too big and their feet were dragging on the floor

    we left the old one out over winter and it did go rusty/seat faded pretty badly

    If I had my time again ~I think I woud get one of the swings that can be converted to a main swing - or just get a main swing and get a baby seat to go on it - but dh says I can't have a proper swing, so that's a bit of a moot point

    My friend has the tp one (baby) tbh they are look the same, except some come with ground pegs (there isn't on the argos one I have)

    sorry it is brief, typing 1 handed

    We bought a large frame that could be grown into and then just bought a baby seat for it. Smyths toystore do some good deals, especially now summer is coming to an end, we got ours there last year. I tend to think wooden frames last longer as metal ones rust quickly
