Thread: Airy Fairy testing

  1. #1

    Default Airy Fairy testing

    Found this on YouTube to day. It's not as good a tape as he normal dose but you can see that he is using a Airy Fairy baby swing. He gets going pretty good. I can do the same thing with my Airy Fairy swing. I am not close to anything so I can bounce and spin and go around and around so me feet don't touch the ground. It's great fun.

    Default Airy Fairy testing part 2

    There is another part to this testing and it's a better tape. It's fun.

    FYI...

    Touching the ground is intentional. It allows one to push one's self higher the next time. It's quite easily adjustable by changing the length of the chain at the top, and many settings have been tried.

    It is close to the rock wall because that's the only way to get back up and out of this thing: by grabbing and climbing the wall. I did this alone once, with the attachment point several feet further away from said wall... imagine my embarassment when I had to wait for someone to come along and ask some random stranger to help me down...

    I just had a chance to try the Airy Fairy seat on for size. I was almost able to fit in it the way it came adjusted in the package. Just had to let each strap out about an inch or so and I could fit in it perfectly. I see what bn3baby meant by having to detach the swing seat from the wood support and lengthen the straps - there isn't too much head room. I held the bar up while in the seat and my head just barely fits under it. If the bar flexes a little and I sink down in the seat some from my weight I'll have a little bit of head clearance. At least there's more head room than with a Graco wind up swing and I don't have to modify the seat at all to be able to fit in it. Loving my Airy Fairy already!

    Nice!

    I've only been stuck in my push chair...and that's supposed to be that way...

    Too bad you didn't have a camera to record that event, I'm sure it would have been interesting...

    Also, I'm glad you didn't have a local gang of hooligans swing by, they might have just tagged you like the wall... or worse!

    I've never tried things like that off my property...so, haven't thought about what would happen...

    Pramrider you do not have to lengthen the straps your weight will push the seat down and give you lots of head room. I use the wood part when I am swing and go without it when I am flying. Last night was the first time I went flying in a long time and I enjoyed it.

    It actually was some random teenager who rescued me... Most of our local "hooligans" are siblings of (or friends of siblings of) my friends so I tend to lack any sense of fear with them.

    I'm not into the whole diaper thing (not judgmental - just doesn't do anything for me) but I tend to feel like jumping up and down on springs should be fun for anyone and being pushed around in a stroller is pretty well up there too... A lot of posts on here seem to be worried about what the rest of society thinks... my response is twofold.

    #1, who cares what they think
    #2, by now some 50-60 people have seen me there, jumping up and down off a railroad bridge in a toddler swing suspended by garage door springs... that's it. nobody thinks "adult baby," they just think, "wow, that kinda looks fun." Several have asked if they could try it (I've let a few of them, after asking/guessing approximate weight and waist size). The most common reaction is surprise - people see me from quite some distance and don't quite know what they're seeing. I've had people think I was a dead body (ie, had hung myself), someone thought I was some kind of animal who had fallen off the bridge and got my leg stuck... but once they get close enough to see who/what I am, I have yet to hear anything other than "that looks fun," or "I thought you were..."

    At this point myself and a couple friends have also been known to push each other around in a jogging stroller. The cashiers at the local store got a bit of a chuckle out of my 6'1" 142lb child, but had no reaction other than "haha, you guys are nuts." Again, nobody immediately thinks "adult baby," they jump to "goofy people with an odd idea of fun." We put a similar-sized teenager in a stroller back in my home town once - he messed up his ankle and his parents wouldn't let him leave the house walking or skating, but he wanted to at least go to the local skate park to hang out with his friends. His mother consented to my pushing him across town in an old stroller that was lying around in the basement. Again, no negative reactions... but much amusement when he decided to try the stroller on the skateboard ramps...

    Last year I had a rather muscular roommate with a fairly strong back... my trip to the store in a frame carrier ( Kelty LL Kids Frame Backpack Carrier $40 Photo by terbeela | Photobucket ) got more than one "omg!" reaction from the employees...

    Oh, good! Fortunately I'm not a tall person as well as not having a large build. Interesting...I was just reading through the owner's manual for the swing. Under safety information there was a note about "Overload Hazard". It says: "The swing may only be used by children aged 3 years and under". It also says the swing has a max. load of 30kg or 66lbs. Yet every write up I've seen on sites where they are sold says 66kg or 145lbs. I guess it's been load tested to the higher weight, but they still only recommend a lower max. weight for the rider for safety sake. Now with the Haba airplane swing I've only seen the 30kg weight limit on sales sites. Maybe that's been weight tested to 66kg, too?
