Swinging animals have fascinated younger and older children for generations. This classic toy has been around since the 17th century, developing children’s imaginations and supporting their creativity. A swinging animal allows children to swing back and forth in such a way that is usually only possible in the garden or at the playground. There are many different versions of the swinging animal, which you can select depending on your child’s age and preferences. Amongst the options are horses, dinosaurs and cars.
