This toy is expensive, but I feel it is well worth the money and a great gift to request from grandparents. Magic Cabin’s Recycled Tire Horse Swing is great fun! Do follow the instructions when installing it, as we forgot to tie a knot around the tree branch so
our swing slips sometimes. You will need a 2 x4 piece of wood and rope. The instructions are just a picture, so it is easy to miss a step. My daughter loves to play on this recycled toy! We have tied an additional rope to it, so that another child or adult can pull the horse back and forth. Another favorite activity is to twist the horse round and round, then let go and spin yourself dizzy. The toy is rated for ages 3 and up and for up to 200 pounds. I can’t say that I have tried to ride it, but maybe I should now I know it can hold me (but can the tree branch?). This is the coolest recycled tire toy I have ever seen. The only information I could find regarding the risks to tire exposure involved the manufacturing of rubber tires and recycled tire crumbs used on playgrounds for cushioning. If you have information on the risks of children playing with tires, please post a comment.
