Finding a Great Swing Set for Our Back Yard!

I’ve been hounding my husband that we need to get a swing set for our kids to put in the backyard.  They have one up at their grandparents and they just love being able to use it whenever they want.  I think if we had one at our house it would be a great way to help keep them outside and active during the summer months.  I’ve been researching swing sets that I think I would like to have in my yard, and I really want a wooden one versus a metal one.

A friend of mine introduced me to this site,, where you can find things like swing set accessories, playground hardware, and swing sets.  I found a ton of them that I really really like, but I just can’t decide!  So far I have narrowed it down to the following three:


Now normally I would just ask my kids which one they like, but I know from experience that they won’t be able to actually help me make a decision.  They will like them all and I’ll be right back where I started from.  I think I am leaning toward the last one with the enclosed upper deck though.  That one seems like it could be a lot of fun, but what do you think?  Does one stand out over the other?  My favorite swing set accessory is the rock climbing wall, and this one has that, but so does one of the other ones.  Do you find it difficult to make decisions on big purchases like this, or is it just me?  Do you have any tips to helping me pick one?  I know I need one that will last long enough for the kids to grow into it for a few years yet, but decisions like these are hard for me because I’m such an indecisive person, lol.

    We had a large wooden swing set with a climbing wall, a picnic table and an enclosed playhouse. You want the playhouse that will allow you to see them and know what they are planning on doing. They can get in TOO much trouble when they can hide from you in there!!! We loved the picnic table and ate many snacks and lunches there! It was a LOT of fun for everyone!
