A sensory swing may be the perfect option for your little one if they require additional support when sitting due to sensory-swings-for-kidschallenges with balance and coordination.  Plus, it’s a GREAT outdoor or indoor activity too!

That’s right ‘indoor’, you can hang some of these swings from the ceiling in your home or basement. 🙂

My nephew, Lenny, who has cerebral palsy has a wonderful support swing which he loves. That is one of his favorite activities.

Because he enjoys his swing so much, I wanted to research the best sensory swings on the market today for kids who experience sensory challenges.

My intention in writing this review of the best 5 sensory swings for kids is to equip you with the information you need so you can make an informed decision about the best possible swing for your kiddo.

Now let’s get started (and thank you so much for being here today). 🙂

Ok now onto the details about this sensory swing … 🙂

Product Description. The price for this adapted indoor or outdoor swing is very reasonable. It provides added support due to the swing being made out of plastic which makes it sturdy and reliable.  It supports a child with low muscle tone and helps improve body strength, balance, posture, and motor planning.  It can hold up to 75 pounds.

Dimensions. 20″L x 12″W x 9″D

How To Use. There is 6 feet of adjustable rope which can be suspended to fit any frame up to 10 feet high. Additional accessories sold separately with the swing seat:

One reviewer Mary rated the swing 5 out of 5 stars and shares, “My son loves this swing! It is very well put together. The only issue is you have to at least a 6ft or higher swing set. Mine was only 5ft and the ropes on the swing doesn’t adjust short enough but other than that it is great!!!”

#2. Raindrop Swing


Price: ==> Click here for the BEST current price <==| My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Sizes Available: None, only 1 size available.

My son had one of these swings at his preschool indoor play area and LOVED it.  It was actually a huge hit with a lot of kiddos!  There is something about the ‘cozy’ soft fabric that they gravitate towards when wanting to play in the swing.

I had to share that story with you … Ok now onto the product description. 🙂

Product Description. This sensory swing creates a calming and soothing environment. The design is flexible which will allow your kiddo plenty of wiggle room room to move around inside the swing and stretch.

It helps a child learn body awareness, motor planning, and balance. The fabric is stretchy and durable.  It provides sensory pressure to a child who is sitting in the swing while making it a fun space to bounce and twirl around in (holds up to 150 pounds).

It’s very easy to clean as the material is spandex which you can surface wash and then air dry.

Dimensions.55.25″L x 40″W

How To Use.  It includes a swivel for spinning and carabiner (which is a safety hook). The suspension hardware is needed to hang the swing and the suspension kit is sold separately (click here).

Professional installation suggested.  The swing requires a 7 foot suspension so when your child sits in the swing it will be lower to the ground so you can adjust the swing based upon their weight.

One reviewer Kari shares, “Worth the money to have a heavy duty fabric that provides the sensory input our son needs!”

#3. Deluxe Swing with Pommel


Price: ==> Click here for the BEST current price <== | My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Sizes Available: Small, Medium, Large

Product Description. What’s great about this swing is anyone can enjoy using it from a child to adult! The seat is extremely sturdy with a hard plastic shell which makes it long-lasting. It is made with a high back which benefits a child who needs torso, neck, and back support while swinging. The back and forth movement provides a soothing and enjoyable experience. The swinging motion also enhances vestibular input which is essential to a child with special needs.

Dimensions. 24”H x 8”W x 11”D (indoor) and 25”H x 13”W x 14”D (outdoor)

How To Use. Hanging ropes are included for the top and bottom of the seat. Additional accessories sold separately which include:

#4.  Bolster Swing


Price: ==> Click here for the BEST current price <==| My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Sizes Available: None, only 1 size available.

Product Description. The bolster swing is an excellent option for improving motor skills and building core strength. It is highly durable for indoor use only, holding up to 150 pounds. This type of swing is challenging as it forces a child to balance and react during movement. It offers proper head and body alignment while changing positions to straddle, sit, swing side-to-side, or back-to-front. It enhances stimulation while providing a calming environment. The bolster swing can also inflate and deflate quickly making it easy to store and travel with.

Dimensions. 16″L x 8″D with straps that are 54″L

How To Use. You may hang this swing from a doorway, ceiling, or swing frame. The straps can be interchangeable to allow a child to move in different positions such as sitting or straddling the bolster.

According to the supplier, Fun and Function, they recommend using their “Height Adjustable Swing Chains; Two Height Adjusters with Two Swing Ropes OR the Two to One Swing Converter if suspending from a height over 6′. If using a doorway bar, hang directly from the bar.  Swing installation hardware and high-volume pump sold separately.”

That may sound a little confusing so let’s EASILY sum up what you will need to hang the swing either from a single point or double point suspension:

  • IF using as single point suspension, the Swivel for Swings MUST be purchased (sold separately, click here) and recommended ceiling height is 6 feet.
  • Height adjustable swing chains for a double point suspension (sold separately, click here).
  • Two-to-one swing converter for a double point suspension (sold separately, click here).
  • High volume air pump  (sold separately, click here).
  • Two carabiners and patch repair kit are INCLUDED.

One customer, Sara, shares, “I’m amazed at how functional this bolster is. It super light , easy to swap in and out and tough like anything. I was concerned by the inflatable part but its holding up really well. The kids really love this swing – it’s unique and can be used in so many ways.”

Dimensions. 58”H x 39” Diameter

How To Use. A swivel is included for 360 degree rotation and 2 carabiners. It requires a 7 foot suspension. Also, mounting hardware is required for installation which is sold separately, click here.

One customer, Ilana, shares, “We hunted for a manufacturer who could make a swing that an entire family can climb onto. We adore this swing as it can be used by one person or multiple people. My own kids were sad to see it leave the house to go out for testing. It provides heavy work, climbing, balance challenge and vestibular orientation. It’s so sturdy that you can put several children on at once for social time. If I had to pick one swing for my basement or school, this would be it!” Ilana Danneman, PT, Product Development, Fun and Function
