it would have loved it for my little guy. As long as the parents have room for it, do it!

My goodness – can you be my aunt?!  That looks like an awesome gift!  I think it will be fine with the modification you’re making.

My son has the baby swing seat that you would add to it, and he loves it! He’s 9 months old right now, so I’m sure a 1 y/o would love it!

I would push a 1 yr old in the swing- they love it.

It is a very expensive gift though. Does your famly always spend so much on each other?

We tend to spend $20-$50 on each other.

I should say that I’m not yet a parent but have spent a lot of time looking after young ‘uns.

Personally, I think it’s great, but I would run it by the parents first.  My parents wanted to buy us a swing set for Addie’s 2nd birthday, but we have to deal with things like snow loads and other random things, so we asked them to hold off until we could research it and find one that fit our specifications.  It would just suck to spend money on something like this if it wasn’t what they really wanted, you know?

I think that is a great gift.  My 1 1/2 year old is all about about slides and swings!  She goes on the big ones at the park but of course I have to be really close by.  Occasionally if there are not any big kids around at the park I will let her go down the big slides but I go up with her and make sure she sits down ok and her dad will catch her at the bottom. By next summer your niece will be able to fully enjoy it.

Another great gift is the Pottery Barn chair.  They have 3 sizes, get the biggest size so it can be used for the most time.  My daughter has the big one with the pink cover with white polka dots and her name monogrammed on it.  She loves it!  If your niece doesn’t have it yet you can maybe get it as a xmas gift.

I’d adore you forever if you showed up with this gift!  My sister and I got scaled-down versions of playsets for eachother’s kiddos (around the 1st/ 2nd bday); adding the appropriate swing makes it all the better.

Personally I think it is an awesome gift however a bit much. I think that the parents should be purchasing something that big. You could always get her a sensory table. That is what we got my BIL/SIL for their daughters first b-day. She is now 3 years old and she still uses it!
