Swing Sets • About Us
Swing sets are popular backyard or playground equipment which consist of
a wood or metal frame from which one or more swings are suspended.
The swings may be constructed of two ropes or chains attached to a rigid
wood or plastic seat, a flexible rubber or canvas seat, or a toddler seat
with safety straps and leg holes.
A toddler swing set may be the first size you buy. There are several safety-focused firms that create swing sets for the smaller set. The swings, slides, and playhouses are much smaller and are made solely of durable plastic to prevent injuries.
For older children, outdoor wooden swing sets are often a better investment than metal or plastic. Not only are they more aesthetically pleasing in your yard, but if properly treated to withstand the weather, they will last for years to come. Your children will grow out of a wooden swing set more slowly because it does not look "babyish" and who knows — you may even enjoy it yourself!
Swing sets come either assembled or in kits with directions; they are relatively easy to build, provided the instructions are followed. If you are a real do-it-yourselfer, you can download plans from the Internet to construct your family's own swing set or simply buy the wood at a home improvement store to build a custom model. Many children like complicated swing sets, equipped with not only swings and a slide, but a fort, monkey bars, and rope climbing features. Get creative with your swing set, and you will insure a source of outdoor entertainment for years to come!
