A safe and sturdy wood swing set is an investment in your kids’ quality of life—and can also be an investment in our economy and skilled workforce. Many high-end wood play sets are made overseas; there are few U.S. manufacturers that build sets here in America from components made in the U.S.A. We carefully choose manufacturers that build American-made products.

For example, our Backyard Fun Factory sets are ranked among the safest and sturdiest sets available. Not only do they offer many fun options—forts, swings, slides, climbing walls, monkey bars and rope ladders—they are also constructed with the top-quality domestic redwood and are made here in the USA.

Our Tree Frogs wooden swing sets are also made here in America. They’re constructed with Western Red Cedar and Redwood, which rank the highest in dimensional stability amongst woods. This means that they split less, warp less, twist less and shrink less. Additionally, they only use lumber suppliers that abide by harvesting guidelines established by the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI).

A quality wood swing set encourages kids to get more physical activity and use their imaginations in creative ways. Their value comes from years of enjoyment and enrichment that are priceless when compared to the initial cost.

So choose your play set wisely: Look for American-made brands that are not only safer than foreign models, but that also do a small part in keeping our economy, and our workforce, healthy and strong.
