Been watching this Airy Fairy Swing listing for over a week and saw the seller dropped the price another $10 the other day, sooooo...I couldn't resist hitting the BIN button. Haba Unisex Airy Fairy Baby Swing Free | eBay

I've always wanted to try one of these ever since another member first posted about them a good while back. It has a 145lb (66kg) static weight limit which is more than I weigh soaking wet. Cheapest retail price I've ever seen was still over $130. To get a new one for $89 and free shipping was a really good deal. Had a little extra in my paypal account to bring the needed funds down to $67 and change. There's still one left at that price if anyone is interested.

Great,

I wish I was in your weight class...

But, I'm no where close...I weighed over 300 in high school...

Now, I'm a light250, highest I ever weighed in at was 1991 at 346... Yep big...and yes I did play football...

Now I'm a 6' 250# with a measly 46" jacket size...back then I was custom only...no off the rack suit would even come close...but would wear a 19.5" shirt...

B

P.s. now I wish I was 5'5" and 125#

Probably for you 250# at 6' is a fairly healthy weight, particularly if you have a larger frame. I'm sure you feel a lot better at 250 than you did at 300 or more. My son is about 6'-4" and weighs 165, but that weight makes him look pretty slim with his height and frame. He really should weigh a little more, however he has medical/allergy issues that keep him from eating a lot of foods that would put more weight on him.

Pramrider a good deal you won't be sorry. I weight 175 and I use the Airy Fairy all the time. The one thing your going to have to do is separate the seat from the wood part. To do this I undid the seat and in the two holes in the wood I placed a hook with two washers and two nuts top and bottom of the wood. This will allow the hooks to be locked in place. Now all you have to do is mount the wood part were ever you want it. Now all you do is get in to the seat and standing on a stool hook on to the looks and go for hours of fun

I'm a big boy too, it's hard finding tools for regression in big sizes. At my biggest I was 6' 1", 365. I was a competitive strength athlete until my back went out on me and without medical insurance, I've been in limbo for the last 2 years, unable to lift any serious weights. I'm down to 285 now.

Sorry to hijack, hehe, but I would never fit in any apparatus made for a baby or a child. However, building one that would fit me? Challenge accepted... maybe. If I ever get the time.

Well, Back on topic...

I hope the op's new purchase brings lots of smiles :)

Yes, I had a near fatal car crash and was unable to walk for approx 9 months...

Still have many issues...Bad right foot...Right shoulder, 2 bad discs and still some head trauma...

Anyhow, there are a few things that they make...I have a convaid cx-18 stroller...that is nice...

anyhow, yes building, if i had the energy and ability to stand all day I'd be done with alot of things...

Thanks! I hope so too. :) The trick will be in finding some alone time to set it up. Until then it will be hidden away in one of my strollers with a cover over it.

Still surprised the other one hasn't sold as yet.

You'll have to post back after its "tested"...

I'd love to have a bouncer seat...I might have to build one after my crib is done...

Haven't been feeling too good lately...so, no build time...

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling too well. I sure hope it's nothing serious going on with your health. :(

You'll have to post some pics of your finished work.

pramrider, You've made a good purchase.
bn3baby, I'm using mine with the wooden part still attached - can I ask why you needed to remove yours?

Been searching YouTube...

Thanks, I'm sure I did! :) I see someone finally bought the other one today that was for sale at this price. BTW, was that you who first posted about the Airy Fairy swing a good while back?

Pramrider I told you about the Airy Fairy way back when it had something to do with other swings.

Oh OK...thank you for the memory jolt. I thought it had come up on another somewhat related topic, but just couldn't recall by whom. Wonder if another AB got the other one...probably not.

I'm surprised it has a 145 lb. weight limit! I weigh 123-125, but I'm curious how an adult will fit in the seat.
You'll have to let us know when you set it up! :)

Well, whomever it was that first mentioned it, I thank you both for turning me onto the Airy Fairy. :) I received it today by UPS and no one at the house even bothered to ask what was in the box. They're just used to me buying baby gear *collectables* off ebay. It did have a small bit of damage in shipping. One of the plastic rods that the parachute fabric attaches to on one side broke. :( I'll have to repair it with another rod of plastic or even a thin wooden dowel. Can't wait to set it up, but I want to try the seat on for size before then to see if the straps will fit around me OK. Bn3baby said they do fit, so I'm pretty confident they will. The seat feels nicely padded for a comfy swinging session. The main wood support is pretty sturdy and feels like it can easily support 145lbs. I'll keep you all posted.

... search . . . YouTube . . . the answer
is there!

Would you happen to have a link? I couldn't find any vids with adults or even teens fitting in an Airy Fairy.
