Lil’ G-Man recently got the Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug n’ Secure Swing to use on his swing set. Even better, while normally about $26, Amazon Prime members can get it for $17.23 at the time of this article! The swing comes in blue or pink (G got the blue) and takes about a minute to put together. No idea how they make money on this – it’s also made in the USA.
It’s technically made for babies 9 months and older (up to 4 years/50 pounds), but we gave it a try a little early. The T-bar comes up to keep your baby secure and two shoulder straps further secure the swing. The fit seemed great for little G even though he’s on the smaller end (we tried it as early as 6.5 months and 17 pounds).
The T-Bar can be removed as he gets older and can secure himself, but we’ll have it in there for a while. The yellow rope straps connected perfectly with the attached s-shaped hook to our swing set. If you don’t have a set, you can buy tree hooks separately.
He seems to really love it – the higher the better! He also loves when I grab him and wait to release him to swing. It also swings on its own for a good minute without additional pushing (might be G swinging his little feet a bit).
Couple of quick tips though:
- The s-shaped hooks need to be facing opposite directions when you hang on your swing set or hook. If not, the swing won’t go straight.
- The shoulder straps hook is a bit tough to get undone. It did get better after the third or fourth time, but try it before securing your baby. Geeky Mommie and Geeky Grammy had a hard time getting it undone because of slightly longer nails. You have to push in and pull at the same time. I have nightmares of taking Lil’ G out on the swing without Geeky Daddy home and not being able to get him out! But luckily it loosened and I had no issues.
For less than $20, you seriously can’t go wrong with this. GeekyMommie highly recommends. Happy Swinging!
