TODDLER SWING RE-DO

Posted by Lori~


Remember my curbside find?  Yes, during my little city, ND annual curbside clean-up days, I found Mur-Man an awesome toddle swing, but there was ONE major issue.  The current clasp was broken, but this is a simple fix.





First up, you must know that Steve and I (or I better say Crafty G-ma and Handy G-pa) purchased Mur-Man a swing set.  Steve and I researched extensively what swing set would work best in our yard, fit within our budget, and suit Mur-Man the best.  We decided to purchase a metal swing-set at Wal-Mart and shipped it site to store (FREE SHIPPING). 


Not a permanent location...once the sod is set--it will move.


We found that the metal swing sets were a much better bang for the buck versus the wooden options and decided to go that route.  In the end, the swing set cost us just over $140.00 (or cost my mom and dad), but we are very satisfied.


Not only that, but the FREE swing works great and Mur-Man loves SWINGING!  But it needed to be repaired.  SUPER EASY.  The clasp cost just under $2.00.  The strap/belting ribbon was FREE!  I simply used an old camera strap that fit perfectly.


I love those two words:  NO SEW







The best thing about this project is that it was a NO SEW FIX.  Simply cut the belt and loop it up.  Also, Handy G-Pa re-attached the lower strap with the original screw. 


The old strap was filthy!



SIMPLE!  EASY!  AND THE SWING COST ME $2.00! Pretty WOM-WORTHY…RIGHT!

While the umbrella stroller is compact, it is not very sturdy. If you will be pushing your child through a field of grass or on uneven pavement, you may find it challenging to get the wheels to move steadily. The wheels are so small that even the slightest raise in the pavement could cause you to have problems. get more
