Kids Play Hard. Get Tough When You Compare Wooden Swing Sets.

Can The Swing Set Take-It When You Shake-It?

Give a Woodplay playset your best shake — you will see how solid it is. And — try that with other playsets. Any swing set that’s lightweight or unstable should be off-limits to your kids.

No Yard Is Ever As Level As The Sales Floor.

Of course the floors in showrooms where playsets are shown are relatively flat. Woodplay swing sets — which include our adjustable A-Frame design — allow level placement in your yard, despite uneven or irregular ground.

Is The Wood Protected With A Stain?

Unprotected wood can become a backyard eyesore. We coat our lumber with a specially formulated, water-based sealant. This eco-friendly process allows the redwood to naturally absorb the stain sealer, enhancing the beauty of the wood, and protecting it from the elements.

Compare Our Warranty to Any Wooden Swing Set.

Woodplay is known for offering the industry’s best warranty in any wooden swing set comparison. Don"t settle for a pro-rated or "lightweight" warranty.

Is The Hardware Recessed?

Hardware that protrudes or "sticks out" is no fun at all. For added safety, we recess and cover bolt ends with acorn caps — this extra attention to detail provides a more gentle environment for skin and clothing during playtime.

Which Ladders Are The Safest?

Woodplay has the safest ladder rungs. Non-slip flat steel safety rungs provide more surface area for sure-footed fun and are easy for little hands to grip. Non-skid coating enhances safety when rain or dew are present.

Avoid Straight Up And Down Climbing Features.

It’s simple, angled climbing features are safer than straight up and down features. Woodplay climbing features are angled — providing a challenging, yet safe activity for children.

Avoid Top-Heavy Swing Sets.

Woodplay uses proven geometric principles to provide safer playsets. Every Woodplay structure has a deck height that never exceeds the width at the base of the design.

Is The Swing Set Expandable?

Compare wooden swing sets, you will see that modular, expandable Woodplay playsets are designed to "grow along" with your family. Add structural options or accessories that enhance your children’s concept of fun as they grow older.

Lumberyard Swing Set Kits: Are They Worth It?

Ask yourself these questions: Do I own the tools needed to accomplish the project? Is my backyard level? Is the set adjustable for an unlevel ground? How many days will it take me to set up a playset? (It can easily take a non-professional installer 12 to 16 hours to set up a playset). When I"m done, will I be confident I"ve set it up to be safe for my kids?

Looking To Buy Online? Look Carefully At The Photos. Look At The Fine Print.

What can you tell from the photo? Does the online seller clearly state what features are included with the playset you’re looking at? We strongly suggest inspecting swing sets in person. Remember the shake-it test we recommend? For safety and stability, it’s always best to check out your final choices on site, versus only online.
