Camping Gear: S Swing by RAFA Kids

I’m constantly on the lookout for great new things to take camping and this swing for the kids is super cool. The only problem is I’ll probably have to buy three! And possibly one for myself too ….

RaFa-kids was created by married Netherlands-based architects Agata and Arek. Agata takes care of the esthetic side of the designs. Arek is the technical brain of the duo. They began making children’s products after the birth of their own sons. As so often happens, they couldn’t find exactly what they were looking for, so made it themselves. Check out their bunk beds too, they’re brilliant.

The S Swing is based on the R toddler bed wheel. was tested extensively in our studio. So much fun for the kids as well as for ourselves! It’s made of first class Finish birch. I love the rubber band around it to protect against bumps! They’ve selected soft, soft rope in either yellow or black which is strong enough to “easily hold an elephant!”.

You can see it’ll work both inside and outside, and won’t take up too much room in the car as it’s only 23cm in diameter. The rope is 3m long and it can carry up to 120kg. It’s €39,50, there’s free shipping and you can order them here.
