Editor's Notes

August 08, 2019:

It's important to decide on what kind of material you want your swing set to be made out of before you make a purchase. Wood is a popular option, as it's sturdy and attractive. It can also rot and cause splinters, though, so take into consideration your climate and how rough-and-tumble your children are before shelling out for a house made of cedar.

Plastic units, on the other hand, are extremely safe, durable, and relatively lightweight. They won't exactly "wow" guests, so if beauty is an important consideration, you may want to skip polyurethane models. They are a good investment, however, as they can last for years and years, even with heavy use. And while they aren't likely to get destroyed by the weather, they are prone to getting hot in direct sunlight.

Regardless of which material you choose, try to make everything as safe for your children as you can. Make sure the entire structure is firmly anchored, and replace worn or broken parts as soon as possible. Falls (especially from monkey bars) are responsible for many a trip to the emergency room, so place your set over sand or a similarly forgiving surface, and make sure there's nothing hard around that a child's head could hit on the way down. In fact, if you can convince your kid to wear one, a safety helmet isn't a bad idea when they're crawling around on elevated surfaces.
