Welcome at Slings & Things!
Slings & Things is a well established name. Since 2010 you can visit us for all ergonomic carriers, slings and carry on consultations. What started with the love of carrying our own children, has developed into passing on this passion to many parents. Slings & Things started small and from home with just a few brands in our assortment. Since 2013 we moved our activities to a warehouse in Weert and since May 2015 we are established at the Graafschap Hornelaan in Weert. We have a beautiful physical shop to welcome our customers in. We can call ourselves the specialist in wearing your child, because many people found their way to Slings & Things over the past years. Throughout the last years our assortment has grown exponentially, which resulted in Slings & Things becoming an (online) department store that offers many sustainable products. Besides slings and ergonomic carriers, we also offer a lot of other baby-related products, clothing and sustainable toys for small and bigger children!
