Traits of the Best Swing Set Brands

You’re determined that your kids are going to have the very best backyard playground ever. But here’s the problem: every playset looks great in the catalog or online — but how do you know it’s well-built and fun? That’s where we can help — we’re breaking down the traits that all of the best swing set brands have.

At Adventure World Play Sets, we’re a leading manufacturer of vinyl play sets that are sold all across the country. In today’s blog, we’re highlighting the traits to look for when shopping for a home playground to ensure that you get a set you AND your kids love!

5 Things to Look for in Home Playground Equipment

At Adventure World Play Sets, we strive to consistently be among the very best swing set brands on the market every year. This is our smart shopper guide of the 5 traits to look for in any swing set or other home playground equipment:

  1. Built in the USA — All of the best swing set brands build their products exclusively in the USA, and this is the number one sign of quality to look for. Buying a USA-built play set ensures the highest quality materials and the best construction. Overseas builders have been known to cut corners in construction and use inferior quality materials. That’s why all Adventure World Play Sets are hand-built in Lancaster, PA by Amish craftsmen.
  2. Made of Vinyl — Old wooden sets are out — and sets made of wood surrounded by vinyl are in! Vinyl playgrounds last for decades, never need to be painted, and will never give your kids splinters. There’s no question that if you’re looking for the best, you’re only looking at vinyl. Naturally, this is ALL we use for any of our products and play set models.
  3. Backed by a Warranty — If a company doesn’t trust their products to last, then why should YOU? A key sign of a quality play set is a strong warranty. While the chances are extremely low you’ll ever need to use the warranty at all, it is a clear indication of a quality product. We back the structure of all of our sets with a 20-year warranty!
  4. Customizable — This is an important trait for two different reasons. Firstly, a play set that you and your child customize together will be tailored to the way they like to play and will be even more fun as a result. Secondly, if a set is customizable, that means the manufacturer builds them one-at-a-time, rather than in a factory by the hundreds or thousands. This is another key difference that makes us one of the best play set brands on the market. As your children grow, your playset can too by adding slides, towers, monkey bars and much more!
  5. Maintenance-Free — If any large piece of home playground equipment can be described as maintenance-free, that’s a solid sign that it is well-designed and built. In order for a product to be able to spend years in the elements without needing to be re-stained or re-painted, it needs to be expertly crafted from quality materials.

If you’re ready to stop looking around and start shopping, then you’re in the right place. We’re proud that Adventure World play sets have all five of these traits of the best swing set brands. Enter your zip code right now to be connected with your nearest dealer.

While we are primarily known for our premium swing sets, we also build a wide range of other products that enhance the outdoor play experience. We craft a wide range of play set accessories that you can add onto your set either when you first buy it or as your children get older and want more fun ways to enjoy it.

In addition, we sell a truly standout kid’s playhouse — the same one that appears on all of our Happy Hideout sets. Finally, we don’t want to leave the adults out of the outdoor fun, so we build a line of grown-up seating options, including hammocks, loveseat swings, picnic tables and backyard benches.

We purchased an Adventure World Vinyl play station from Back Yard Living at end of May. Unit was delivered and installed in the time frame quoted. Adam was very helpful with information on various units and manufacturers. We decided to go with the maintenance free all vinyl clad swing set, play station from Adventure World. Unit was professionally and thoroughly installed yesterday. This unit is extremely well built and solid. Backyard Living was a pleasure to work with and we are extremely satisfied with the product we chose and the company who provided unit and installed I would wholeheartedly recommend Back Yard living as your go to company for your children's play station!!!

You will not be disappointed with these sets! We have had one for 11 years now, just washed it off with soap and a garden hose after winter and looks like it did when new! It might seem like quite an investment upfront but is worth it. We bought when we had our first son and now have 4 kids playing on it! Our grandkids will use this set someday. Worth every dollar we spent on it!
