Leading wooden playset manufacturer encourages kids to discover outdoor fun

Raleigh, NC – Woodplay, the original redwood playset company, encourages parents and kids to make October "Get Outside and Play" time. The American Heart Association recommends that parents help children reduce sedentary time and promote at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activities each day. In addition, Science Daily reports in its July 20, 2008 edition that obesity is the #1 problem facing children in 2008. Concerned parents want to offer their children a great way to exercise that provides interest and variety. One option that can help get kids interested in outdoor activities is the installation of a backyard playset.

Kids naturally flock to a backyard swingset or play center and Woodplay offers original redwood playsets that make play fun and keep kids interested year after year. Creating a playset design can be a fun family project. While Mom and Dad may make the initial purchase decision, kids love helping to select the range of playset add-ons and accessories that personalize their new backyard play center.

"Our goal is to create quality redwood playsets that complement kids" natural enthusiasm for outdoor play," stated Tom Ellingson, Woodplay’s Product Manager. "A Woodplay playset is more than a swingset; it’s a fun outdoor gathering place, full of laughter and activity. We like to say "Every day is a great day in Woodplay!" "

A Woodplay playset is more than a swingset or plain outdoor playhouse; it’s a fun place where kids immerse themselves in swinging, sliding, running and climbing, with no remote controls and no batteries necessary. Kids get to use their own imaginations and exercise doesn’t have to be a chore when kids have exciting outdoor activities to do. Woodplay makes exercise time fun time and invites parents and kids to get started today by designing their very own Woodplay playset.

Looking for a way to get your kids outside this October? Get creative and help them decorate their playset for a Halloween party.

Simply add ghosts, ghouls, spiders and bats and your kids’ swingset will be the place to be this Halloween. Getting outside is the goal and this is just one of the many way for kids and their families to enjoy active play on a Woodplay playset.
