My young boys are the rough outdoorsy type. Well, as rough and sporty as a two-year-old, three-year-old and ten-year-old can be. We are certain they will excel in sports. They love the adventure that the outdoor brings, always asking to get out of the house. They love experiencing everything new and repeating and revisiting the old.
Grand Trunk sent us one of their New Junior Hammocks for us to review. Today we ventured out to find the perfect spot to put up and test out our hammock. Firstly we noticed how small and lite the hammock was folded into its little bag. I actually thought initially that we will never get it back in so neat and small (but that wasn’t the case). We were pleasantly surprised at how small it folds into its own bag and easy to refold back in once used. It’s so light that our 2-year-old has no trouble carrying it. Made from 100% Parachute Nylon, the material is soft and feels nice against the skin. The Trunk Straps come in a separate bag. They are more than adequate in length and the quality is outstanding. It was just so easy to set up and to pull down and fold back into the bags.
The boys thought Christmas came early. They had so much fun swinging and playing in the hammock that they didn’t want to get out when it was time to pack up and go home. We loved watching them enjoying themselves so much and highly recommend The Grand Trunk Junior Hammock. Now we are thinking of purchasing a couple more hammock for the family.
This kid-sized hammock comes in cool kid-friendly designs. It’s perfect for the park, camping or backyards.

Hammocks have in recent times become more popular with new designs and add-ons making them a good alternative for tents when camping. A hammock is what would best be described as a sleeping device that can be suspended from walls, ceilings, trees, frames and more, depending on how inventive you can be. Hammocks provide an enhanced resting and relaxing experience and are also known to provide amazing health benefits for people with joint, bone and spinal problems. Some of our adult friends have been using hammocks to sleep in when camping, for some time now, and have reported back how much they love using them.
Some Benefits of Hammocks:
1. Promotes sleep by providing natural rhythm.
