"It is a lifesaver for my son who is a sensory seeker with ASD. The swing provides him comfort and calms him down, when necessary. Wish I purchased this a year ago."

VESTIBULAR INPUT & DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
Sensory swings provide vestibular input. Vestibular input is the sensation of any change in position, direction, or movement of the head. It gives our bodies information about whether we are moving with or against gravity, fast or slow, moving or still, and what direction we're headed. If you'd like to learn more about sensory swings and the science behind them, we wrote a guide to it here.
Sensory swings also provide Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body that can give a feeling of calm, relaxation, and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote an article on it here.

My kids (13 and 5) love the swing. Both are intense sensory seekers and love the cocooning aspect of the swing!
We have 4 kids currently using this swing and many friends.. it's the highlight of our home. Kids like to cuddle inside and look at a book so I'd say it's comfortable. It's definitely sturdy as I've seen two of my kids in it together. We do have ours hung on a sturdy beam. It's held up very well.. I've washed it a few times already and we owed it since May. Almost every parent ask me where to get one. It's also a great help for calming my ADHD child and helps him focus in on school. While he swings, I teach and he listens better. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
My 8 year old, 55 lbs, loves relaxing in the swing, standing to try to balance, and do “tricks” like going upside down like a trapeze (with her head touching the ground). It’s been good for her to gain balance and work muscles she’s never worked before. It’s been a great product so far (we have had it up for a week). I am a little worried about durability of the fabric, so time will tell if it snags or rips.
This swing is awesome! My 7 year old will really swing around in it and she can be active in the house or she'll crawl in and read a book and it's comforting to her. My 4 year old likes it as well and the two of them will often crawl in together or have found games to play together with it. So great, thank you!
THIS REVIEW IS NOT SPONSORED.I've spent thousands of pounds on different products over the years that would satisfy her sensory needs and none has hit the mark quite like this. You will have to make sure you install properly but once installed, I guarantee they will absolutely loved it (I obviously don't guarantee but you know what I mean). Hers is mounted above her bed (Wasn't too sure about safety beforehand lol) and its the best gift she has ever received, bedtime is childsplay.It looks such great fun I wish I could join in but I may exceed max weight 😆I Highly Recommended This Product To Anyone. This is one of buy best 'Sensory' buys.
