This wooden swing adds a splash of color to the yard, with its bright green seat that seems ripe for a preschool pixie. Sturdy construction makes parents breathe easy, but ladybug handles and apple green ropes entice kids to hop on. That’s good news, because all that leg pumping works gross motor skills, and the big muscles preschoolers are still trying to wrangle. A whimsical take on an old staple, this swing will make you smile each time you look out your window and see it hanging from your tree. (Sassafras, $18.49)
