Kids Creations Swingsets

Not too shiny but....

Looking at swingsets for my kids. These look pretty nice. I'm wondering if anybody has any experience with them?

The other option I'm looking at is Woodplay.

Thanks

FWIW, I got two used ones sitting in my back yard. Come Spring I plan on making one helluva swing set outta the two. Maybe a rope bridge connecting the two "towers.". Two slides, two climbing walls, climbing ropes, etc. Gonna buy new chains and swings. It's gonna be badass.

I am thinking the kids can have nerf dart gun battles between the two, maybe each one will have its own flag to capture .

My plan is to put them in the ground with 4x4's. i am not a big fan of how they just sit atop the ground nowadays.


Get some parts and make up the rest on yer own.....


The last thing you add is one of those fake plastic owls up high on a broom stick, that keeps all the other birds away that poop all over the things. Damhik.


Those fabric looking roofs in your links go to crap In a short time. The ones out front of toy r us and Walmart are kinda cheap, they'll work, but I tend to over build stuff.....it's more fun too.

Man!! That's a lot of money wrapped up in those things!! The one my boys have is nowhere near as nice, but it works. I picked up a couple of old play sets from Craigslist and cobbled them together. One came with a regular slide and a friend found a twisty slide at a yard sale so they've got a two level, two slide structure with a climbing rope and swing. I'm considering adding bridge to a second tower that would be enclosed, like a clubhouse/fort.
There's lots of stuff out there on CL that might be a good starting point, if you're not opposed to getting creative.

That's what I thought too, so I designed my own and had my daughter help me build it.
