Your little sidekick might be too young for underdogs, but she can still have a blast on the swing set. A new invention makes it easy, fun and safe for young ones to swing, even when there are no baby or toddler bucket seats in sight. Meet SwingEase, a portable mini seat that securely attaches to standard swings, converting them to fit kids 6-36 months.

SwingEase was created by two Washington D.C. moms who were tired of visiting playgrounds where they couldn’t find bucket swings or the bucket swings were unclean and insecure. Their portable helper looks like a diaper (the fit is secured by an adjustable strap) and has metal hooks that attach to standard chain swings.

Your little one can swing next to an older sibling (perfect for grabbing a photo opps). Better yet, your babe can swing with you in your lap; just attach the hooks higher and perch underneath. When you’re not using the SwingEase, it folds up snug to fit in its own portable sack, which is small enough to fit in your diaper bag.

SwingEase is brand new and up for grabs online for $39.99 at
