Thus, it helps children to reduce their academic tension. However, children swing can also be found in leisure parks or amusement parks. They are basically for relaxation purposes.

The design and fabrication of children’s swing is an acknowledged and established work. Hence, we are trying to imitate or copy the technology and of possible make new innovations to enhance its efficiency and reduce the cost of production.
The children swing is physically operated and it is found commonly in Nursery, Primary, Post-Primary and recreational/relaxation spots. The main objective of the swing is toe create an atmosphere for children to rock themselves to and fro the seeing. Thereby reducing the tension in classroom and also avoiding ht kid from indulging themselves in other dangerous recreational facilities. However, the swing is meant for infants, teenagers and ever adults.
1.1 IDENTIFICATION OF NEEDS
The children swing is a necessity for any growing child. It is needed to build up a child psychologically and making him mentally alert. It also create opportunity for a casual exercise because as one swing, the muscles in the arms and legs are being exercised simultaneously, thereby making the child to be physically fit. The children swing enables the child to relax his nerves, thus avoiding unnecessary tension in one’s mind
This project is limited primarily to the production children swing. However, the specification is not limited in this case. We are expected to improve on the already fabricated design, to ensure that other aspect f the design like its reliability, endurance, efficiency and compatibility is maintained.
