There was a time when kids were happy with a tire hanging from the tree in the garden. Today’s kids are little more demanding, or their parents are, so child porch swings come with a very elaborate design, with safety features that range from the front bar to high back that supports head and ropes instead of chains to prevent little fingers from getting pinched. The colors are also far cry from the good old tire – new child porch swings come in a rainbow of colors, or are natural, when made of high quality, beautiful red cedar. The materials range from knot-free yellow pine, molded plastic, timeless red cedar, oak, cypress, pressure treated pine or recycled plastic. There is also a range of designs, from straight lines, Adirondack to rustic and molded to cocoon baby’s body. While the kids will not notice much difference as long as they can swing and fly, parents can have great fun choosing the safest and the most beautiful child porch swing for their little prince or princess.
