  • No child should be denied the fun of playing in there local park or at home with there friends and family – even if that child has physical disabilities or special needs which might make this more difficult to achieve.
  • Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and educators, along with parents, agree upon the importance of play in a child’s development. Play is an important source of gaining a sense of belonging and a feeling of accomplishment.
  • The JennSwing® founder, inventor and President Deanna Johnson, understood these simple facts and recognized the direct effect of play it had on the overall quality of life in all children, and so, began striving to create a product that would allow her disabled Grand-daughter Jenna to experience the exhilaration of swinging as we all did as kids.The JennSwing® was the product and the solution she would in turn invent, develop and market to the families and parks of America, so all children like Jenna could eventually enjoy the simple pleasure of swinging.
  • Besides making the playground and swing set more accessible for all children, both the JennSwing® and Cubby II® include additional great features…view each swing to see the benefits and features that the JennSwing and Cubby II provides.

Deanna Johnson

Hello Australia,

My name is Deanna Johnson, I am the founder, developer and inventor of the JennSwing® and Cubby II® safety swing set seats in America.

For the past 20 years in America, I have had the privilege of friendly reception, continual positive feedback and overall general acceptance of my creative vision which all began nearly 20 years ago with my Grand-daughter, Jenna.

For Jenna’s sake, and all the other special needs children like her, I was saddened to discover that there was no such thing as a swing seat that back then that easily allowed disabled children to experience the exhilaration that comes with playing on play equipment and directly from the simple act of swinging. As a child, everyone remembers the excitement and fun they had swinging on there local playground swing. Swinging and playing is not only just for fun, but it has also been proven as one of the very sources from which children gather a wealth of skills and experiences that both enrich our lives and teach us valuable life lessons at a very early age.

Apart from playtime being a fun activity, play is one of the most important ways in which brain development occurs in children. Playtime has been discovered to build self-esteem, teach problem-solving skills, develop balance and understanding of basic physical principles at a young age, and furthermore, nurture the important senses of belonging and accomplishment. Swings help bring playtime to these children.

And so, I began planning and developing a safety swing back then for Jenna, and for other children like her, that would make these opportunities fully accessible and make the joy of playing on a swing available to all children. This endeavour became what is now the JennSwing® safety swing seat that America families have been able to access for the past 20 years.

Recently, in a means to make swinging (swings) even more accessible to children or infants that are to small to benefit from, or fit into the JennSwing®, I developed a smaller version, its little brother, the Cubby II® for all families to have access to.

Please see the comments from a professional who purchased a Cubby II Jennswing for his own child with special needs and has offered the
following testimonial where he has stated his personal and professional recommendations as follows.

Antonio Leone

Hello,

I am Antonio Leone. I am a practicing Chiropractic Physician in Illinois America. Not only am I a Chiropractor, I am father as well.

As a Chiropractor, I was concerned about the gravitational force that my child’s body weight was exerting on her pelvis while swinging on a traditional playground swing. That’s when I found the Cubby II®. With the Cubby II® I no longer have to worry, as the Cubby II® is a safe swing and most importantly does not exert stress on your growing child’s body while swinging. I saw the Cubby II benefits straight away with its durable plastic design and its full body positioning support and it was the right choice for my child and should be for yours as well.

The Cubby II® is an amazing advancement in children’s playground equipment, not only for those children with special needs, but for all children that may need that additional support that the cubby II provides. My child uses it and I recommend that yours does too.

Lyla

Hello,

Lyla Poppy is our 3 year old daughter, she’s faced many hurdles in her short life and unfortunately will continue too for the remainder.

See, Lyla was born with a neuromuscular condition, a condition so rare, despite the countless tests Lyla has undergone, it remains undiagnosed. Lyla’s whole body is affected by this unknown condition, her most severe issues involve her brain, respiratory system and spine, these things combined (and even separately) will result in a shorter life expectancy for Lyla, due to this Lyla was put under palliative care at 6 weeks old. Lyla’s brain malformation affects her in the way that she physically cannot do many things many children her age can do. Lyla cannot roll, sit, talk, stand, or even eat orally, she has very tight arm and leg muscles and weaker neck and trunk muscles, she even requires non-invasive breathing support overnight.
