I haven't heard one mom or dad tell me that purchasing a swing set was an easy decision - so let me first congratulate you on your new purchase! Now that you've made your decision, here are some of the key questions parents have.
It’s easy to go into a store or browse a catalog and buy a swingset for your children, but the only thing easier than buying a swingset, is buying a bad one. These are the top seven features you should look for if you want a swingset that your children will enjoy for multiple years. You’ll avoid a lot of hassle by doing a little research upfront.
"Healthy kids are happy kids!" Before the days of cell phones and Facebook, it used to be easy to get kids outside and moving. My mother often had to SCREAM to get me back inside. Sadly, today this is more difficult. Our kids are getting on iPads and cell phones earlier than ever, and the time they spend outside is decreasing. But the good news is that by simply having a playset in your backyard, your kids will not only easily be able to go outside and play, they’ll WANT to!
One of the more frequent questions I'm asked is "Jay, what's the difference between Sunbrella, Vinyl and a wood roof on a swing set?" While looking at playsets for your child, one consideration is the type of roof or top that will be used on top of the main deck. There are several different types of tops with different features available. You will need to choose between a vinyl canopy, Sunbrella fabric canopy, or a wood roof. Let's go over the pros and cons of each type so you can make an informed decision on what to purchase.
