The Expression Swing is the only patented playground swing designed to promote intergenerational play in which can adult and child interact face-to-face and eye-to-eye. Research tells us when a parent and a child’s eyes meet, particularly during play, there is an intense and significant moment of emotional bonding that occurs. Scientists call this “attunement” and it enhances the social, emotional and cognitive well being of both children and adults.
1. Play for All
Play isn’t just about children. Instead of pushing your child on the swing, swing WITH them instead!
2. Get Connected
The face-to-face expressions between two people are a priceless gift provided by the Expression Swing that will last a lifetime.
3. It’s A Social Media HIT!
If you haven’t already heard, parents and children are loving this swing! The Expression Swing has over 7,000,000 views on social media and YouTube. Have a look for yourself!
4. Inclusion is Important
The Expression Swing is designed to be used with multiple swing seats enabling children and parents of all ability levels to swing together.
5. Create a Strong Family Bond
The Expression Swing isn’t just for parents and their children. It also encourages older children to play along with their younger siblings, creating an important family bond at an early age. (disclaimer: the Expression Swing will not eliminate ALL sibling bickering )
6. It’s Science!
“This swing allows mutual, joy-filled eye contact that activates the hard-wired play ‘state’ to spontaneously and vigorously emerge. It allows intergenerational mutual play to occur throughout the life cycle and stimulates cerebra-cerebellar circuits that we know are hugely important for developmental competency.” – Dr. Stuart Brown, M.D.
