Playground Equipment - Swing - Wooden Swing Set as Playground Equipment

Updated on December 9, 2012

Playground Equipment - Swing - Wooden Swing Set as Playground Equipment

After writing about baby cradle swings, I am delighted to write about swing at the playground -- the jungle gym -- why not, even adults enjoy the swing when they are with their children or baby at the parks or playground. Swing is a part of playground equipment and usually when you buy it, it goes with a set.

The ones more popularly used are the wooden swing set, that is what we see at playground, but there are those metal playground equipment too. You can also see this at the back of church which children used when they are taking a break attending Sunday school. Having a playground equipment is good (lots of fun) and they are best to keep the children busy. Swing is part of the complete jungle gym where you have all the complete feature of playground equipment.

More parents are now buying a playground equipment -- the jungle gym with the swing set because they can see that children loves to play on it with other friends.


They are a lot cheaper than we think ( the most complicated ones are more expensive) and a good buy for our children specially when you think of the enjoyment it will give them and instead going on a park if you have some space for it, why not buy it?

I saw some of the houses here in the vicinity where I stay that they have a playground swing that goes with other playground equipment set at their own backyard or wide spaces beside their houses.

Wooden Swing Set at the Playground which you can also get for your backyard

Jungle gym is a complete playground equipment

Accessories for playground equipment -- There are other swing accessories which you can put in the swing like glide swing, swing for toddlers, punching bags, trapeze arm. There are also playground hardware like swing hangers, clips and the hooks, rope, chain tools. Sometimes a complete playground set - a jungle gym with the swing set comes with a bar -- like monkey bars, glides, and steps so that the children can climb up and down. The more feature it has, there is more fun and of course the more expensive the playground equipment is. Most of the playground equipment like wooden swing set takes time to put together but it is very easy, but once it is put together. Just follow the instructions and you are set to play.

Wooden swing set is good because it is beautiful and goes with the surroundings unlike the metal ones, which are definitely harder and difficult to climb. When you want to have fun at your own backyard this is what you need so that your children don't need to go to the park or playground anymore. Buying swing set as playground equipment make sense.

Wooden swing as playground equipment is simply good for family fun and gathering

If you are like me who really wants to join children at the park or playground while I watch my baby, then this one is a nice investment for you, even the elder children can make use of a playground equipment like a swing set. They never get tired of it. Plus of you have lots of children, grandchildren etc. this is very good during family gathering like party times. An elderly friend of mine gave a playground equipment swing set for her two grandchildren and she was very happy to inform me that they loved it. It is pricey but of course when you think about it, you can use it for longest time until they grow older and have children already. The playground equipment is a good gift for those who really want the children to enjoy.

The swing is part of the jungle gym which can be bought as part of the overall playground equipment.

Summary/Conclusion

The swing is a part of the overall playground equipment and there are swing specially made for toddlers and much older children. Wooden swings are nice and durable, plus it doesn't rust.

      You probably could find a play set for a reduced price if you join one of those Facebook groups in your area like buy sell trade, a lot of moms get rid of stuff their children no longer need, and for reduced prices. My sister has sold quite a few items her kids have grown out of, and has even bought some things for her garden. It is safer to use than Craigslist because it is a local group, and usually parents want a way to sell and trade stuff they no longer use. Just a thought.

      That is cool sweetiepie. I will probably think about buying one when I can save some more money, but thinking that cold season is way too long here, it might not worth it.

      Thank you for commenting sweetiepie.

      My dad worked for a man who bought a brand new swing set for his kids every year or so, and they decided to give us their old wooden swing set. It was quite cool, and I loved it. So much more sturdy than the old metal one we had previously.

      Ate Maita: as usual you have done a fine job advising us about the various products available for people to care for their newborn or not yet born babies. I almost wish you were my mommy, cuz I know I'd have such great stuff.
