Swings & Slides
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I look for when buying?
Materials – most of our swing and slide play centres are made from high quality wood. Others are made from UV-protected plastic or metal that's treated against rust.
- Wood has a natural feel that blends into the garden
- Plastic is bright, colourful and appealing to young adventurers
Features – are you after a set of swings, or a spectacular slide? Or do you want a centre that features both? Some centres include extra features such as:
- A sandpit
- A rock climbing wall
- A tunnel
Which size should I buy?
Our swings, slides and frames come in a wide range of shapes and sizes designed to fit all sorts of budgets and gardens.
Plan ahead to make sure what you buy will fit in your garden - look for measurements and diagrams on our product pages. You also need to make sure that:
- there’s room for children to safely move around whatever you choose to buy
- there's enough flat ground to sit it on
Is it right for my children?
Check what ages items are suitable for – it’s important that your kids are able to reach a swing or climb to the top of a slide. Many of our swing sets include different types of swings to cover a range of ages.
It’s also important to know whether your children will need supervising when they’re playing.
Is it easy to assemble?
Keep an eye out for items which come with pre-assembled or pre-drilled parts. All come with easy-to-follow instructions.
It's worth nothing that swing sets often have anchor kits to pin them to the ground to keep them sturdy and safe.
