Reindeer Swing

Forget long speeches about the importance of recycling—give your kid a front row seat to the argument, with a boost onto this reindeer swing. Sculpted from previously used truck and car tires and made entirely by hand in the U.S. and Europe, this Blixen-for-the-backyard looks like a living breathing beast, thanks to the elasticity of the tire material. Non-toxic and cleaned so the black won’t rub off on clothes and hands, we can’t think of a better use for all those semi-truck treads. The swing comes completely assembled and ready to hang on your favorite tree without need of an engineering degree. Plus, the rope can hold up to 200 pounds. Not that you’re buying this beauty for yourself, but, well, we’re just saying… (Wildlife Creations, $79.95)
