  • 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.

    Winner of Eastern Jungle Gym's Holiday Swing Set Giveaway Carly Daring is the winner of Eastern Jungle Gym's Holiday Swing Set Giveaway.

    "Either way," she said, "I am sure it will get a lot of use for many years!"

    The Classic Cedar Swing Set comes complete with two sling swings and a gym ring/trapeze bar combo. 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.

  • Building a Wooden Playset with the Whole Family

    When was the last time you and the kids bonded over a family project? Enjoying laughs, working through challenges and finally accomplishing your goal with your son or daughter leaves you with memories that will last a lifetime. And, depending on the project, you'll likely have a finished product that will yield even more fun times for years to come.

    That's certainly the case when it comes to building a wooden playset for the backyard. Depending on the model you've selected (and its complexity), getting the kids involved may seem a bit challenging. But not to worry -- there are plenty of ways to get the little ones to help out safely. Here are a few suggestions:

    • Safety first -- Teach your children how to make sure all safety precautions are taken before embarking on a construction project. This means having the proper equipment (safety goggles, gloves and sneakers, or another type of closed-toe shoe) and the appropriate work space; making sure any lumber you've picked up at the local hardware store is sanded and free of splinters; etc. Communicate all of this to your kids during a "safety talk" before you get started on the wooden playset. Be sure to mention that power tools can be dangerous, so it's important they stay away from these items unless otherwise instructed.

    • Have the kids organize the hardware -- Before getting started, gather all of the hardware you'll need and ask your children to sort through it. Have them place all the bolts in one pile, the washers in another, the caps in another and so on. Then, once you start assembling, your kids can have them ready at your request. This activity will help them learn all about the different parts of the swing set, and they'll get an up-close look at the construction as mom or dad's assistant.
    • Let them try their hand at assembling -- Since you will be supervising the activity, there's no harm in allowing your child to try using the drill, provided he or she is the appropriate age and you have modeled the correct usage several times. Just guide the youngster along and you should have no problem.
    • Have them take care of the finishing touches -- Whether it's helping them up the ladder to hang the swing or handing them a rake to smooth the rubber playground mulch around the set, the kids will love the privilege of being responsible for the finishing touches.
    • Clean up -- There's nothing children love more than a game, so factor in the spirit of competition and see who can clean up the most! Instruct the kids to gather up any boxes, and make sure all the pieces of hardware are picked up and placed in their respective bags.
    • Test out the product -- It's the moment they've been waiting for! Once the wooden playset is assembled and cleanup is finished, it's time for the kids to try out their new swing set! We recommend having a camera on hand so you can capture the excitement as they hop on the swings and swoosh down the slide for the very first time!
