No long term success here. I've made two hammocks for nieces (ages 4 and 2...they love them) and given away two other hammocks to assistant Scoutmaster's...one of which had a positive response the other was extremely skeptical. My family thinks I'm just nuts (wait...you were outside in the back yard (testing gear) when it was 35 degrees when you had a perfectly good bed INSIDE a nice warm house?).
And I'm OK with that.
