Little Tikes 2-in-1 Snug ‘n Secure Swing Review

The Little Tikes swing is a brightly colored indoor or outdoor toy that babies from about the age of 9 months will love.

It converts from a “snug and secure” swing for babies aged 9 months and up, to an open swing for toddlers up to age 4. For babies there’s a T-bar that goes between their legs and holds them securely in, plus shoulder straps to keep their top half safe too. Then you can simply remove the T-bar and straps when they’re old enough not to need them.

Even with all the attachments for a baby, it’s quick and easy to settle your child into it. Do the T-bar first and that will hold baby safe while you fit the shoulder straps.

Fitting

The swing can be attached by S-shaped hooks (included) to eye bolts on any sturdy overhead structure like a strong tree branch, a swing set or a ceiling beam. This means that if you use it outside you can simply unhook it at the end of play if you want to keep it clean.

The seat made of tough, durable plastic. The ropes are synthetic and seem strong. Of course if you have it a long time you should check it for fraying from time to time, especially if it’s left outside, but it’s likely to last well until several successive children have grown out of it.

Tips for Using the Swing

Eye bolts are not included. They’re cheap and easy to find in any hardware store but you’ll need to get some before you can put up the swing, unless you already have a swing set or something else that the S-clips can hook onto.

One other point some parents mentioned is that if you have a baby and a slightly older child and you want to have them take turns in the swing, you might find it a little frustrating to be removing and replacing the T-bar and straps each time. It’s not that quick to do.

On the other hand, this is probably a safety feature so we wouldn’t have the manufacturers change it. Maybe you just need two swings!

The Verdict

Currently priced around $30, this is excellent value for money. The swinging motion is both fun and soothing for babies, and they all seem to love it. A great choice if your little one is in the age range.
