Hammocks help to develop sense of balance in children

The Chico Kids Hammock from Amazonas is suitable for children up to the age of 6

Whether in the nursery, in the garden or on holiday, a kids hammock is the ideal refuge for young children and tired warriors.

We all know that gentle rocking has a calming and soothing effect, but did you know that swaying also promotes the sense of balance?

Elltex - Revolutionary new weatherproof hammock material launched by Amazonas

The single 'Banana' hammock is the smallest in the new range of weatherproof hammocks

EllTex® is a new hammock material to have been launched by Brazillian hammock makers Amazonas.

It is a special mix of polyester and cotton that is apparently very weatherproof, hardly fades and stays extremely tearproof, even after repeatedly getting wet. But the best claim is that EllTex® manages to do all this whilst remaining snug and soft like pure cotton!

Three hammocks have been launched in this new material:

A single rainbow striped hammock with banana shaped bag

A large hammock with stretcher bars, that is available in three colours:
Aruba Juniper, Aruba Cayenne and Aruba Vanilla

A family sized XXL hammock with stretcher bars that fits the Arcus and Olymp wooden arc stands

EllTex® can be hung outside even when it is raining or when the sun is burning hot - it sounds fantastic.

Mauritius is the largest in this new weatherproof hammock range. It is a XXL hammock with spreader bars...
