Swinging sensation – the innovative swing that every park should have

expression swing

Most children love the sensation of swinging back and forth. But what if there was a way to interact with bub, to take in every facial expression, every giggle, every smile, while pushing your little one on the swing?

Now there is. Come and see the ingenious Expression Swing in action. It’s certainly something worth swinging for.

Why didn’t we think of this? It’s a swing, but not like you’ve ever seen before. The Expression Swing is the first face-to-face swing to hit the playground and we are loving the simple yet brilliant design behind it.

Children under the age of five can sit in the bucket seat while an adult sits in the regular swing seat, thus allowing mum and bub to swing together.

The company behind the face-to-face swing is Game Time, a world leading manufacturer of commercial playground equipment based in the United States. The swing retails at $995 and is now found in parks around the world, including in Australia, through Imagination Play.

There are Expressions Swings installed in two Queensland parks already – Anzac Park in Maryborough and Brendan Hansen Park in Granville.  Where else have you seen the Expression Swing? Isn’t this something that needs to be installed in every park?
