Kid Friendly Hammocks

It’s a fact: kids love hammocks!

If you have kids, or work with kids, bring a Trek Light portable hammock along on your next trip to the park, playground or wherever you like to take them. The kids will love playing in the hammock and pretty soon you’ll probably find yourself playing (or napping) right there with them!

Chances are, if you grew up with a hammock in your backyard or knew someone who had a hammock in their yard, you have fond memories of playing in it with your siblings or friends. There’s just something about a hammock and the feeling of being elevated off the ground that makes children endlessly entertained.

However, most of those fun memories likely also involve a concerned parent keeping a close eye on the hammock shenanigans, reminding you constantly how easily you could fall out and hurt yourself or get tangled up and caught in the rope.

While you may remember laughing even when you did fall out of the hammock, the truth is that most hammocks do involve a real risk when children are playing.

Trek Light is here to change all of that.

With our safe, No-Flip™ design, you can rest easy knowing that they won’t hurt themselves by getting flipped over and dumped on the ground.

With Trek Light's kid friendly hammock design, your children can get as close as they want to the edge and the hammock itself will never flip over and put them at risk of getting hurt.

Just as importantly, our soft, parachute nylon design also means that there aren’t any holes, loops, or anything at all for an arm or a leg to get caught in or tangled up in.

While any small child should obviously be supervised whenever possible*, we’ve taken the worry out of the hammock experience to give your children, or the children you’re responsible for, a product that is safer and more comfortable than the hammocks you grew up with - without losing any of the fun.

Trek Light's portable hammocks hold up to 400 pounds, so your kids can sit in the hammock together, or sit in the hammock with you as you read a book or tell stories.

Our line of Double Hammocks are the perfect size for the whole family. When the kids need a rest from the playground or the game, they can curl up in a portable hammock and rejuvenate instead of getting cranky from too much activity. 

Does your child have trouble napping?

There's something about a hammock that makes the idea of a nap just fun enough that even kids who hate taking naps will be begging to get into the hammock for nap time.

Because our ultralight hammocks pack down small for travel, you can set your hammock up at barbeques, in your kids’ bedrooms, on playgrounds, or anywhere else where you or your kids could use some downtime. If you already have a sturdy playground or swing set in your backyard you can usually hang the hammock right from the playground itself, so you never need to decide between one or the other if space is an issue.

Trek Light portable hammocks can add a great new twist to the summer overnight sleepover – next time the kids ask if they can sleep outside in a tent, let them sleep under the stars and they’ll soon be begging for more outdoor adventures!

Don't take our word for it, get a Trek Light hammock today and see for yourself – your kids will thank you!

*** While Trek Light's portable hammocks will never unintentionally spin or flip while in use, it's certainly possible for anyone (child or adult) to lean or climb too far over the edge and fall out while playing in the hammock. Please remember to use good judgment when small children are playing in the hammock and make sure the hammock is always setup low to the ground and not over any rocks or sharp objects. ***


Here's what our customers say:

"My three-year-old granddaughter has never been in a hammock and for her it is truly magical and she keeps thinking fairies and magical creatures will appear at any moment. Quite HEAVEN ON EARTH.

Thank you for this fabulous piece of material, that we use to escape the world for just a moment and all is well!"

"We LOVE our Trek Light Double Hammocks! We purchased 4 hammocks 3 years ago for our 4 kiddos to replace their bunk beds. They have slept in them every night since and love them.

I love that the kids can unhook the hammock from one end of their room and have their whole bedroom to play in for the day. When it's bedtime, they just re-hook up the carabiner and are ready to go to sleep.

I often find myself in the hammocks on Sunday afternoons to take a nap or read a book. Our oldest kiddo also takes his Trek Light Double Hammock to go camping instead of loading down his pack with a tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, etc. Trek Light Double Hammocks are DEFINITELY the way to go if you are wanting to experience a great hammock!"
