Are you searching for a backyard playset? If so, you may also be asking yourself, what will my kids want the playset to look like, what inclusions, and more? Well, let’s discuss what makes the best backyard playset and put your mind at rest!


What Makes A Great Backyard Playset?

When looking and pondering about a backyard playset, there are certain elements to keep in mind when looking for a playset you like. Would your kids think this playset is fun? How safe is it? And how often can they use it?


Is this playset fun?

What is the most important element of a playground? Well, you want your playground to be fun and exciting for your children. When you search for your kid’s dream playset, ask yourself these questions, because, ultimately, you know your kid’s interests the best.

  • Will my kids like to climb and hang, or do they want a space of their own?
  • Do they want a tall lookout or a base camp?
  • Do they want games included on the playset?
  • What type of swings would they enjoy?

These are just some to get you started, but they will be a great help when searching! If your kids like to climb and hang, they may like elements on their playset, like a rock wall, rope wall, or most importantly monkey bars! Let your kids burn their energy and ultimately sleep better at night and cause less trouble in the house but most importantly will improve their mood! A great swing set for this is the KC-8 Deluxe!

Do your kids want a tall lookout or a base camp? Some kids may be scared of heights, which is okay, we have a playset for your child too. For children who love to be high in the sky, look for a swing set that has a high tower and maybe even a telescope or binoculars, so they feel like they are on a lookout on a pirate ship searching for enemy pirates, the RL-10 Cliff Lookout may be the right playset for you! If your children are scared of heights and want their feet to be closer to the ground, maybe a simple playset like the KC-1 Clubhouse will be the right fit for your children!

Looking to integrate games into your playset? Well, we offer a lot! Creating the best backyard playset is what we love to do! Say, your kids love simple games to play with friends like tic tac toe, checkers, or maybe even connect four! Add these items to your playground to create lasting memories for your kids. These can always be cherished with neighborhood friends or even family! Maybe your kids love sports, you should check out the RL-3 Sports Tower, which features our buzzer beater hoops, a fun basketball game to either shoot alone or play with friends and family! This great playset also features the QB challenge, which tests your children’s throwing skills as they try to throw a football into the tires!


Is this a safe playset?

When it comes to your children, safety is a top priority! Many backyard playsets on the market cut corners to achieve the dollar price customers search for and love! But when it comes to something that could seriously hurt your children, would you cut corners and buy the cheaper one? We do not think so!

Search for a playset that includes safety items such as handrails, hand grips, and maybe surfaces that resist splinters and sharp edges! Our vinyl playset is one of the safest playsets on the market because we know, when it comes to your children, there is nothing more important than safety! Built with high-quality vinyl that resists the sun from fading, decay, splinters, and cracks. Secondly, the decking is a composite deck board that provides a smooth surface that does not crack, rot or burn your children, meaning no unwanted cuts or burns to the skin!


Will this playset be usable year around?

What is the use of spending money on an item that can only be used in the summer? Well, a vinyl playset requires no maintenance, which means it is ready to go at the spur of the moment! The best swing sets for year-round use are the playhouse models! Be able to put a small heater in the space letting your children use that space year-round with friends or family! Children love that feeling of having their own getaway!

So when searching for the best backyard playset for your children, ask yourself those questions to help you make your decision! Your children deserve the best and every child is different, so get the best for them and one that fits their personality and desires the most!
