    The Top 5 Swing Set Accessories and Outdoor Products for Every Holiday Gift List

    It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we have recommendations for the best swing set accessories and backyard products to give this holiday season. Whether you're shopping for your husband, wife, children, or extended family, this list has something for your loved one.

    Swing Set Accessories and Playset Ideas

    Our first recommendation is the Eastern Jungle Gym Easy 1-2-3 A-Frame Bracket. We suggest giving the bracket to your favorite DIYer. The bracket makes building an A-frame structure easier than ever by creating a safe, secure angle for your lumber. This bracket may be used to build a number of outdoor structures. Made with top-quality steel, the bracket features a one-piece design with welded seems. It is extremely heavy-duty, weighing 10 pounds.

    Perhaps you have in mind a more complete hardware kit that includes the Easy 1-2-3 Bracket. Look no further than the Classic Cedar Swing Set Hardware Kit. This kit comes with all the hardware you need to build an A-frame swing set. Three swings are also included. Simply purchase your own lumber and this kit and set aside 1-2 hours for assembly. Then you will be ready to surprise your kids with a brand new swinging structure right in your backyard. All of the hardware provided in this kit is extremely heavy-duty. It is designed to support both children and adults so the whole family can play!

    Families that have an existing swing set may want to upgrade their current activities or add a new swing. The High Back Full Bucket Swing is the perfect accessory for the very little ones. This swing allows children of all ages to enjoy the swing set. Recommended for children six months and older, this swing seat is fully enclosed. It also features a high back for additional support. The bottom half of the swing chains are coated in soft plastic for a pinch-free grip. This means parents can rest assured, knowing the kids are swinging safely and comfortably while having a ton of fun.

    More Backyard Ideas: Sheds and Trampolines

    Shifting the focus to outdoor items that go beyond swing set accessories, our next suggestion is a storage shed. Maybe your kids are older, or perhaps you are shopping for your husband or extended family. If that's the case, consider a backyard A-frame storage shed. These multi-purpose storage structures are available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Choose from wood or vinyl and customize your colors. Additional options include shutters, double doors, windows and more. The classic A-frame style compliments any backyard or outdoor area. Often offered pre-built or built-on-site, these sheds fit backyards of all sizes. You can even turn your gift into a family bonding activity! Clean out the garage with the family, or gather and store all of your swing set accessories indoors for the winter months. The kids will be happy to help set up Dad’s perfect Christmas gift.

    Last but certainly not least are Springfree trampolines. These products add a whole new level of fun to the backyard. Available in multiple sizes, Springfree trampoline are springless, which means there is a reduced chance of injury. With soft edges and a safety net enclosure, this is a great gift idea for mom, dad and the kids. Springfree Trampoline come standard with Tgoma – Take Gaming Outside and Make It Active. Tgoma is a gaming system that allows the children to connect their tablet to the trampoline, making the experience more interactive. The app features games that incorporate education, fitness. The kids will have so much fun they won't even realize they are exercising. When the children are at school, mom and dad can get outside and use the trampoline to get active, too. In our opinion, a Springfree trampoline is the perfect holiday gift for the entire family.

    Making the Most of the Holidays

    If you have an extra vacation day around the holidays, take a few hours to spend time as a family enjoying your new products and incorporating physical activity into your routine. We want to wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season and a wonderful New Year!

  • Holiday Gift Idea for the DIYer: Swing Set Bracket

    Holiday Gift Idea for the DIYer in Your Life:

    Multi-Use Swing Set Bracket

    For many of us, holiday shopping gets a bit more difficult each year. First, there's the challenge of selecting an original gift that the person doesn't already have. You also need to find something that fits your budget. And of course, if you're like us, the element of surprise is a necessity, too.

    When it comes to the DIY-er in your family, we have a suggestion that meets all of the above criteria: a solid steel swing set bracket. Our Easy 1-2-3 A-Frame Brackets are extremely versatile. They have a 45-degree angle between the legs, and 14 pre-drilled holes for easy assembly.

    While we use our swing set bracket exclusively for playset purposes, we've heard of customers using the product in a variety of ways.

    Swing Set Bracket Uses

    Here are some of the ways DIY folks around the country have used this piece of hardware: Hammock stands.

    - A homemade, A-frame hoist with a solid wood beam. One customer planned to use this for lifting tractor implements, cradling livestock/large game, and supporting motorcycles when performing maintenance.

    - An A-frame for a single swing or a bench swing (one of the many products for which we use the bracket).

    - Adding a swing to an existing structure, such as a deck or a playhouse.

    Planning and Presenting Your Gift

    There are a few different ways you can give your loved one a swing set bracket. The first option is to purchase one (or two, depending on the project you think he or she may have in mind), wrap it and present it. Be sure to account for the heavy weight of the item when you go about wrapping and transporting.

    Another option is a gift certificate to be used toward the purchase of the bracket. Depending on the amount, this could give the recipient some flexibility to add additional items (hardware, a swing, etc.).

    Our last suggestion applies if you are the DIY expert in the family. If this is the case, you could use these brackets to make one of the above-named items as a gift for a loved one.

    A Solid Option

    No matter which route you take, a quality, steel swing set bracket is a useful gift. It leaves no shortage of possibilities for DIYers! Whether used for a swing set or an unrelated project, a swing set bracket is sure to be a memorable holiday gift.

  • Growing Family Wins Swing Set Giveaway

    The winner of Eastern Jungle Gym's 2015 Holiday Swing Set Giveaway is a New Hampshire woman with several nieces and nephews, all 8 years old and younger -- and a baby on the way.

    Carly Daring will receive the Classic Cedar Swing Set, which retails for $999.

    "I was really excited," Carly said, recalling when she heard the news that she won the swing set giveaway. "It's our first house and we always have family over, so we'll have it set up in the yard and our nieces and nephews will be able to use it. And then our son will be able to use it down the road."

    With three swing positions, the Classic Cedar Swing Set offers the flexibility of swapping out the standard swings for others (such as the horse glider swing for two). Carly is already thinking of adding an infant swing, such as the full bucket swing, until her son is old enough to transition to a half-bucket swing or sling swing.

Made of 100-percent solid cedar wood, the swing set relies on heavy duty hardware, patent-pending 1-2-3 A-Frame brackets and thru-bolt construction. The other playsets in the Classic series feature the bench swing, three-chain tire swing, the full-bucket swing and more.

    The contest was run by Housewife on a Mission, as part of a larger giveaway hop that ran from Dec. 4 to Dec. 18. Eastern Jungle Gym holds giveaways and contests several times a year, and past prizes have included swing set accessory bundles and Dream swing sets.

    Eastern Jungle Gym will continue to grow its network of authorized specialty retailers--which includes national and international dealers--as well as its online presence. The company recently added Vuly trampolines to its online inventory.

  • Eastern Jungle Gym Now Selling Vuly Trampolines

    Eastern Jungle Gym is now selling Vuly trampolines on its website.

    The Vuly Thunder Trampoline, the Vuly Thunder Tent and Vuly accessories are available on EasternJungleGym.com. Vuly is an Australian-based company that expanded to the US in 2014. The award-winning Thunder is designed to be strong and safe, with "the best bounce of any recreational trampoline in existence."

    Trampolines provide a terrific source of exercise, and the kids just love them.

    "We're all about creating childhood memories, and we're committed to providing only the safest products," said Rolf Zimmermann, Vice President of Sales for Eastern Jungle Gym. "Vuly trampolines and accessories are high-quality. They fit perfectly with our goals."

    After launching its e-commerce site in January of 2015, Eastern Jungle Gym was looking to expand its online offerings to include another backyard product for children. Trampolines allow kids to have hours and hours of fun while staying active outdoors. This, coupled with Vuly's innovative design and safety features, made the decision a no-brainer for Eastern Jungle Gym.

    The Thunder offers a number of terrific features. First, it uses leaf springs instead of coil springs. That means the edges of the trampoline are soft, so mom and dad don't have to worry about the kids having to avoid a hard frame. Second, the safety net fully encloses the trampoline. The HexVex game mat is printed with graphics so the kids can play trampoline twister and other games. And the sturdy dual frame design means the trampoline's foundation will last.

    Trampoline accessories available for purchase through Eastern Jungle Gym include the basketball set for the hoops-lover in the family, the Vuly deck for the skateboard, and the Thunder tent. The tent is an exclusive Vuly feature that will allow the kids to feel like they're camping without ever leaving the backyard.

    Depending on the size of their backyard, customers can choose from three sizes of Vuly's Thunder Trampoline series. There's the medium round (8'3" mat diameter), large round (10'7" mat diameter) and extra large round (12'6" mat diameter). Additional information--including spring leaf counts, frame diameter and product videos--is available on easternjunglegym.com. And customers will be pleased to learn that these trampolines qualify for free shipping.

    Eastern Jungle Gym looks forward to adding more products to its website in the future.

  • Contest Winner Thrilled with Playset

    As luck would have it, the winner of Eastern Jungle Gym's 2015 Springtime Swing Set Giveaway was just starting to look for a backyard playset for her kids. In fact, Molly Conetta and her husband Jason were planning to start shopping in the coming days -- until they got the good news, of course!

    "Thank you so very much," Molly wrote to Eastern Jungle Gym. "We are so thrilled and can't wait to play on our new swing set!!! My son and daughter will love this for years to come. You totally made our weekend, especially since we were going to be out shopping for a swing set for our family and now we are lucky to have this one."

    "I think this is the best option for our family," Molly said.

    Molly and Jason were looking for a swing set the kids could grow into, so they are planning to order the Dreamscape 1. It features a clubhouse, a 10-foot wave slide, a rock climbing wall, a Jacob's Ladder and more.
