    Ways to Give Your Child the Gift of a Swing Set

    Children love to unleash their imagination and enjoy playtime with a swing set! Giving the gift of a playset is a wonderful way to encourage physical activity for children. Plus, swing sets are a gift that never goes out of style, especially in comparison to other toys! Children can use them to play with family and friends for many years to come. 

    1. Giving the Gift of a Swing Set for Birthdays

    There are a variety of ways swing sets can be presented as a birthday gift for your child. One of the ways to approach giving this gift is by presenting your child with a playset prior to their birthday and hosting a birthday party around the playset so they are able to use the toy immediately.

    Depending on the price of the set, and the budget for your child’s gift, this toy could be presented as a birthday present for the next two or three years. Or, if your children's birthdays are in the same season, you could give the playset as a combined gift.

    2. Surprising Children with a Swing Set from Santa for Christmas

    We also love the idea of presenting the swing set as a Christmas gift. Incorporate the holidays into your gift giving by presenting this toy as a special present from Santa. This will make your child’s holiday extra special! Simply have the kids bundle up and head outside instead of down to the Christmas tree. Just be sure to keep the kids away from the backyard the week prior! We recommend planning alternative activities -- such as cookie baking and ornament-making -- for that week.

    3. Rewarding Positive Behavior During the School Year with a Swing Set

    If your child had a particularly difficult year with school or achieved a goal or new academic milestone, consider presenting them with a swing set to reward their hard work! Giving this gift to your child during the end of the year is ideal as they will be able to play with friends and enjoy this playset in the outdoors all summer long! Another option is to present the gift as a motivator. For example, if you give the kids a swing set part way through the year, you can use it for daily positive reinforcement. Playing on the swing set could be a daily reward for completing homework or other assignments.

    The Bottom Line

    The swing set is a present you can continuing adding to by gifting your child with new accessories for future birthdays, holidays, and other celebrations. From adding a new clubhouse toy to upgrading a swing, there are plenty of ways to update a playset

  • A Parent’s Perspective: Backyard Swing Set Benefits

    Here at Eastern Jungle Gym, we firmly believe that having a backyard swing set fosters increased physical fitness, problem-solving abilities and socialization skills, as well as improved independence. We also know that a backyard swing set is what many longtime memories are made of — hence, our slogan, “Creating Childhood Memories.” But we would be remiss if we did not mention the other family members it impacts, too: Parents.

    For moms and dads, there is a long list of milestones to look forward to between a child’s birth and his or her first birthday. Somewhere around seven, eight or nine months, the little one experiences the swing for the first time — a moment he or she will never remember, but one that mom and dad will never forget. I was so excited to put my child on the swing for the first time. Despite it being a gloomy February day, the temperature was warm enough to spend a little while outside, so away we went, snowsuit and all! It didn’t even matter that baby fell asleep after about five minutes in the swing. We had snapped a few photos and were already looking forward to next time.

    When you have a swing set right outside your back door, it is almost impossible to go even one day without using it, no matter the kids’ ages. This is why it makes sense to go with a backyard swing set that is large enough for the children to grow into. If you get something too small, they will outgrow it in no time, and you will be left making a second purchase. Your child may be too small for some of the activities initially, and that’s OK. Simply stick with the ones that are age-appropriate and work your way up. Besides, the sense of challenge that some of the activities provide will help your child develop confidence and new skills. And that means those memorable moments will keep coming as the little ones achieve more and more on their backyard swing set. Investing in a backyard swing set — whether a simple A-frame style or one with towers and multiple activities — is even becoming a popular choice for grandparents for these same reasons.

    Whether you are a mom, dad, grandparent, aunt or uncle, having playset at home is an investment in happiness. It allows the satisfaction and pride a parent feels so often during a child’s early years to be experienced by a number of other family members as they visit for get-togethers, parties and holidays. Having a backyard swing set allows mom, dad, child and others to enjoy an endless number of those special moments as the baby grows from infant to toddler and beyond.
