As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, time is spent researching and sourcing the perfect materials available to craft both beautiful and long-lasting garden wooden swings for children. Each of these children’s swings are handmade from one piece of air-dried Superior Grade English Oak. This timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. Our children’s swing seats are then hand sanded until silky smooth with beautiful, rounded corners and gently smoothed off edges. They are extremely comfortable it sit on.
Our UK Made Rope:
All of our oak swing seats are finished by hand with Liberon Superior Danish oil which contains a UV filter so your swing will keep its golden colour for longer. This finish will require regular upkeep. However, you can choose to have your wooden swing seats finished in our low maintenance Diamond-Coating for maximum protection.
All of these personalised children’s swings come with 5 metres drop of synthetic hemp rope on each side. This is a strong marine quality rope that is mellow in colour, soft to touch and is synthetic. That means it won’t swell, shrink or rot like a natural rope. Longer lengths of rope are available if required, so let us know if you need more.
These children’s garden swings come ready to hang and can be tied directly from a tree branch. Alternatively, we can supply marine quality fittings that are ideal for adjustment without having to climb the tree. They can also be hung from porches and other structures with strong frames.
Standard Knot – Our child swings come with two-knot options. Standard knot – means the swing seat has a single hole in each end of the oak swing seat, then the rope is then fed through and tied off with a Stopper Knot underneath.
Spliced Knot – The alternative is a Spliced knot. Like our larger adult swing, the wooden swing seat has 4 holes – two at each end. The rope then goes through one under the swing seat and out the other and then the two strands are woven together above the swing. The Spliced knot will make the swing seat more stable.
Wooden Swings Personalisation:
These children’s wooden swings are available blank, with standard engraving or can be personalised with your own unique message, using up to 25 characters per side.
We can also engrave a secret or personal message for you on the underside of your swing, making your tree swing that little bit extra special. Children’s names, a classic children’s nursery rhyme or story book quote, something witty, or just something secret you don’t want anyone else to see – but you know it’s there.
3.5cm x 17.5cm x 45cm (1.5” x 7” x 18”)

Children’s swings will be delivered within 7-10 working days. Please be aware this can change daily. If you require an item to be made by a specific date please contact us.
