Why get a regular wooden tree swing you can get a skate board swing?
You can sit down and rock back and forth on a “skateswing” just like you would on a traditional tree swing. However, you can also use it to sway side to side like you are flying through the air on a skateboard.
Kids love the Sk8Swing. Plus, this cool-looking contraption provides a great solution for kids who can’t skateboard on the streets near their house.
It can also act as a simple intermediary tool for your children learning to balance on a board. The side-to-side motion of the swing helps kids (and adults for that matter) get more comfortable with the leaning movement.
The Swing is Easier to Put Together than a Skateboard
The icing on the cake is that this tree swing comes ready to hang. There is no assembly required.
The company claims a “1-minute” installation time. However, if you plan on hanging it from a tree where you don’t already have a clip installed, it might take a little longer.
If you’re looking for a super quick and easy install method for hanging a tree swing, I recommend the Royal Oak tree swing kit. It’s a no-brainer, and you can use it to hang virtually any tree swing in minutes.
What’s the Downside to the SkateSwing?
First, the trade-off to having a cool-looking skateboard swing that you can install in minutes is the price. The Sk8Swing costs about $100. I’ll admit, this price is not much different than other competitors like the web swing or platform style. However, you can make your own tree swing with an old skateboard for a lot less money.
Second, kids can stand or sit on the seat, however, they can’t lay on it like they could a platform swing. Nor can multiple kids sit on it at one time.
Therefore, whether or not you should buy the Sk8Swing comes down to how you want to use it. And, of course, how much money you want to spend.
For example, you can get 2+ hammock chair swings for the price of a single Sk8.
