The Original Tree Swing is a family owned and operated business born from a desire to to inspire creative play for children and the young of heart. We are a family of teachers, artists, and students who hope to help enliven the development of children's imaginations, to encourage them to dream big, to trust in themselves, and to learn to listen to their innate wisdom. We hope to join with parents to foster healthy optimism; to serve in some small way as facilitators of the possible. To remind children that the power to achieve greatness is and always will be within themselves. All of our toys are made from reclaimed wood and finished in beeswax or mineral oil. We strive to use recycled materials in all areas of our business from our wood to our shipping materials.
