I’m sure you have all seen the expensive swing sets that cost over $1000. The truth is although those swing sets and play centers are very nice, you don’t need to spend that much money to find a swing set your kids will love.
There are plenty of cheaper alternatives and I even found some pretty cool swing sets under $200.
Swing sets are great for encouraging outside play and if your kids are anything like mine they will use their imagination to come up with some creative scenarios and games for swing set play. For example, sometimes my kids will pretend the ground is hot lava and you can’t step on the ground at all. It’s just a fun game that adds some more excitement to playing on the swing set.
Here are some inexpensive swing sets that don’t cost more than $200.
This swing set is triple the fun with a cool slide, swings and even a see-saw. The recommended age on this swing set is 2-10 years old.
