I'm looking to get a wooden swing set (with slide) that will be big enough for my kids to grow into and my DH who's 6 ft. Any recommendations? Any sets I should avoid?
We have a wooden swing set from Sam's Club that cost right around $1000. It will be 7 years old this May, and it's still in great shape.
--3 sets of hooks for swings. Regular swings can be changed out for baby swing, trapeze, other types of swings.
--rock climbing wall & ladder up to tree house "fort."
--slide down from tree house "fort."
--sand box under fort.
I know several people who bought a Rainbow brand whose swing sets were damaged in our east coast "snowmageddon" a few years back. Ours is still going strong.
We had a Rainbow Playsystem and we had it for 9 years and then we disassembled it and gave it to another family. It still looked new after 9 years. The kids never got bored with it. We decided to build an inground pool so had no room left for it. My kids loved our playset.
