The kids are getting little wiser with Wise Owl + GIVEAWAY


When we first moved out here to the middle of no where, I told Miss Layla I would build her a  different type of swing for every part of the yard. 2 years later.....  Yea life happens.  But a couple of weeks ago we were offered the opportunity to test out the Wise Owl Hammocks and although I never thought of a hammock as a swing I was quick to realize the kids were gonna teach me a thing or two. 





From Wise Owl we received a two person camping hammock and an Owlet Kids Hammock.  They are super compact, the biggest at just 8 inches tall making them easy to take anywhere!

I have to admitt, I was a bit thrown off by the title of a "kids hammock".  If you have been following along, you may have noticed my kids are tall and have grown very well. Both Maison and Layla had always been tallest in their class and Jeramiah is becoming built like a little brick house working this summer.  So we put up the two person hammock and let the kids have at it until I was ready to review.

Eventually, hubby informed me that it was sitting too close to the ground because the tree's I choose were too close together and he put up the kids owlet.   Wise Owl sent plenty of the heavy duty rope to make the hammocks reach trees that were further apart, I just really liked this spot in the yard so that's where I started.

 I was quick to notice however, the only difference between the two is the length and width.  The two person hammock is 10 feet long and 6.5 feet wide while the kids owlet is only 6 feet long and 3.5 feet wide.  But once we had the owlet out, I realized even I fit in it.  Both hammocks have a 400 pound weight limit supported by the tripple interlocking stitching in the parachute nylon.  The soft material is really nice and doesn't stick to you like other outdoor fabrics.  I even put Baby Kolton in the owlet and he loved it! 



Both hammocks came with nautical grade nylon ropes and two steel carabiners so I'm also not worried about them slipping with anyone in them.  They are incredibly strong and very supportive!

So, just another toy or something worth purchasing?  These hammocks from Wise Owl are definately worth the purchase!

The first weekend the hammocks were set up, Jeramiah used the two person one to sleep in. The kids set up a campsite with the hammocks, a fire pit, and some movies with a projector screen I found on Amazon.  The kids camped outside all weekend!  It was almost like we had the house to ourselves we seen them so little! 

<------ Seriously, Jeramiah's asleep in there!





Since we've put up the Wise Owl Hammocks, I find the kids outside more and more every day! I've really been surprised at how much use these hammocks are getting!  I've found Layla in them more than once reading.. Yup I said it READING!  She's been reading her Very Bad Cat book even though summer is here and she's officially out of school.  I asked her what she was doing and the response was "Swinging".  So never mind the book, she found a minute when the boys weren't in the hammocks and took advantage of the opportunity.  I joke and say the kids are "getting a little wiser in their Wise Owl".  Wise enough to stay outside anyways! I just love seeing them outside rather than glued to an electronic.


The hammocks have been up now for almost three weeks and the kids never seem to get out of them!  Be sure to check out Wise Owl and all their products at the following links;

  10. I am such a sucker for time in a hammock. I bought my parents one for their lake house and we all love taking turns lazing about in it. Hammocks are so darn comfortable. I am so glad your family is enjoying the hammocks and more time outside!
