Hi there! I'm Melissa, the founder and creator of the Swingly Storefronts, where we transform everyday doors into play shops that inspire creative play.
Our journey began in 2020 and like so many parents at the time, we found ourselves facing the daily dilemma of keeping our kids engaged and entertained. I was also working from home and was looking for things that would keep the kids happily playing without the hassle of elaborate setups. After endless searches that left us with nothing but bulky tents and playhouses too colorful for my own taste -I let my imagination take over and there the concept of our Doorway Storefronts was born 😉.
As Swingly has grown, it has become so much more than we imagined. It's reminded us how fundamental play is in a child's life. How important it is to drop the routines and just let the kids play. Play helps to develop independence, creative problem-solving skills, and, most importantly, the ability to think critically.
At Swingly, we're here to help you create a world of adventure and wonder right in your own home, where your kids can play, imagine, and learn. We're thrilled to have you as part of our Swingly community, and we can't wait to see your little shop owners on their grand opening day!
