Swings and ladders, Toys & Play
Solvej (sool-vay) Swings provides stylish swings of timeless Scandinavian design, made from the best quality materials to ensure a safe and fun swing. Read more about the benefits of swinging on their website.
Founded by Jenny Etherington and Thomas Mortimer in 1993 following the birth of their daughter Solvej. A cabinet maker and seamstress by trade, they were unhappy with the idea of putting their daughter in a moulded plastic swing so designed their own natural alternative.
The swings continue to be made in their rural home town of Matiere, New Zealand to foster the dream of providing employment and supporting the community in rural sectors of New Zealand and remain sustainable and as environmentally friendly as possible.
Their flagship convertible Baby-Toddler swings:
- are suitable from 6 months to 6 years old
- are for indoor or outdoor use
- are independently tested for multiple international safety standards
- carry a 9 year guarantee
- are easy to clean and move
- has a firm seat to support core development (swinging is great for vestibular development too, and getting babies to sleep!)
All the swings are made to last a lifetime (or more!) to provide joy to as many as possible. They are all made ethically, with a living wage paid to all employees, supportive work environment, environmentally sustainable business practices from the bottom to the top and a lot of love.
Solvej Swings are also sold in stores around the country.SKU: n/a

Laura and her husband started a wee business called Wriggle Crew (based in Auckland) designing stylish, waterproof Messy Mats and Play Mats for babies and young children.
The idea came about as they have two particularly spilly, messy sons (tummy time and nappy-free time were ALWAYS a nightmare) and they couldn’t find any Messy Mats or Play Mats that were easy-clean and nice to look at!
All of their products have surpassed international health, safety and environmental standards. They’ve also been made with a whole lotta love, and as mentioned, with their own kids in mind.SKU: n/a
