Plastic swing sets are designed for both really young children and for older children in an area that is too small for a regular sized metal or wooden swing set.
The plastic is durable, heavy- coated vinyl and is designed to hold up to one hundred pounds of weight. Seats on plastic swing sets can be in any shape – animals, horses, tires, etc. and can be any colour. They are very appealing to children and are the best choice of swings for very young children. They are becoming the ones recommended most to parents by physicians and children’s hospitals. Less accidents requiring medical attention occur when using these swing sets because they are also more child-friendly, as the children cannot get rope burns or splinters in their fingers.
Plastic swing sets are the choice for parents who want to get value for their money with little maintenance. They will not rot or splinter as wood does or corrode as metal does. They require no regular maintenance, except to be cleaned if you so wish.
The plastic is weather-resistant and can be left outdoors in the backyard just like a regular swing set during the warm weather months. However, they must be stored in doors if the temperature in the winter goes below freezing. If the plastic freezes, it will crack.
These swing sets can have one or two swings attached and can be attached to other plastic playground equipment such as climbers and slides. There is no danger of becoming caught in any protruding bolts as they are moulded into the plastic. They look fantastic and even adults love the look and feel of plastic swing sets.
