Editor's Notes

March 25, 2019:

Slide are one of the most iconic items on a playground. In fact, we are willing to bet you can't recall the last time you saw one that didn't have a slide. This isn't really a surprise though, when you consider how much children love them. Whatever the age of your kid, we have a model perfectly suited to them. If you have a toddler on your hands, you'll want to take a look at the Step2 Play Up, Little Tikes First, Step2 Game Time Sports Climber, Step2 Naturally Playful Lookout, Little Tikes Easy Store, and Eezy Peezy Active Play 3-in-1, as they are all low enough to the ground that the chance of injury will be mitigated if they happen to fall off. For older children, in the 6 to 10 age range, we have included the Swing-N-Slide Cool Wave, Swing-N-Slide Side Winder, and Platports Wavy. The PlayEasy Climber and Swing Set sits in the middle ground of these two groups. While not large enough for older kids, it is bigger than the other models for tots, so there is no reason a four year old or even a small five year old would enjoy spending time on it.
