For those of you who can’t resist a spin on the merry-go-round or a trip down the slide, maybe it’s time to take some fun home with you. From a company who's used to making skateboards, this laminated birch swing is designed for serious fun and knows how to hold together: Tunto studio has done extreme weight testing on their swing (bending it into a U-shape!) and still haven't found the breaking point of the wood, and the rope is guaranteed to hold nearly 4,000 pounds. No plastic, no chains, just old-fashioned wood and rope. If you don’t have a tree of your own, co-opt a friend’s, neighbor’s, or local park’s for the afternoon and a kick up your heels.
