This is how i made mine...the toys are very low because i built it when she was pretty young. didnt want her to jump yet. The only downside to this way is you cant adjust the height. It is what it is. you can get shorter toys but cant do much else really. Still better than nothing though. I also have one now right next to it hooked up to a large tree branch thats much taller. I started with one spring but quickly moved to two springs. each one can handle about 40 pounds or so.
