It can be very overwhelming when you first start looking for a swing set. Swing and Play have some of the best swing sets Australia has to offer...but which one is right for you? There are a stunning number of choices and variations making it very hard to decide.
Think long-term - Try not to buy something that’s “perfect” for your kids right now, because in a year or two, they will have outgrown it. A bigger set requires more vigilance in supervision early on, but pays off in the long run. You could also consider adding to the set in the future.
Space - Swing sets require space around them for safety, so factor that in when you’re thinking about size. Also, think about orientation. Will you be able to see the slide from the kitchen window?
Construction - There are oodles of variations in materials and construction. Wooden sets blend into your landscape nicely but may require staining after a few years. Sets made of recycled materials take less maintenance and won’t give your children splinters, but they are usually more expensive.
You'll need a soft surface - If you're going for a set which your children will be climbing on then you need to consider the surface. Most injuries around swing sets come from falls. By having a soft surface, a fall does not have to result in tears. Whatever you do, do not simply plonk your new swing set onto concrete or asphalt. If you do, you can expect to end up on first name terms with the local paramedics. Safer alternatives for your undercover include grass, pea gravel, mulch, rubber mulch, even fancy rubber tiles.
