Woven Backyard Swings - Delightful Fun or Too Dangerous?

With no playgrounds in walking distance of my home, I'm tempted to put up a piece or two of playground equipment. I don't see my nieces and nephews often enough to warrant a full on, expensive, yard-hogging playset. But I'm tempted by something like this Sky Island from Hearthsong. It looks fun, but perhaps a bit dangerous. It holds up to 400 pounds. I wonder if anybody can bang their head on the poles?

The Hearthsong Sky Island is also available via Amazon.

Magic Cabin sells a similar, smaller swing: Rainbow Weaver Swing. It holds up to 225 pounds worth of kids.

Do you have any experience with backyard toys like these?
