The best backyard swing sets share a few characteristics: they’re made from high-quality materials, have been excellently constructed, have the best safety features, and come equipped with exciting activities. Here at Plum Play there is no shortage of add-ons! Whether you are searching for a swing set or looking to add on to an existing backyard playground, customising your kid’s swing set is going to make outdoor play even more of a thrill. Your kid’s will adore you for it!
From monkey bars to rope ladders, here’s our rundown of the best and most loved swing set accessories you can find to help customise your kid’s swing set.
1. Monkey bars
The monkey bars are an essential item that is often a kid’s favourite. They’re popular among parents because they help their children build upper-body strength. Whether you choose traditional monkey bars or double-wide monkey bars, they should be made of steel rungs and a solid wooden frame. A set of monkey bars may transform an ordinary backyard swing set into something spectacular in no time.
2. A second slide
If your family is like many others, the slide is one of the most sought-after playground activities. Day after day, the kids take turns swooshing down, and there’s even a line at family birthday parties! Why not add a second slide if this seems familiar? There is no better way to personalise your swing set than this. You can accomplish this by adding another slide of the same size and kind, or by mixing it up by selecting a new size. It all depends on the type of swing set you have and how much money you have to spend. If you’re looking to give your kids’ playset an upgrade in the future, this is a terrific choice to keep in mind.
3. Rope ladder
You can add a fun and challenging rope ladder to help your kids further develop their motor skills. Our jumbo rope ladder swings from side to side, too, making it a fun new way for kids to explore their play equipment.The Plum rope ladder has chunky, solid wooden rungs and super soft poly hemp ropes, which help little fingers and hands hold on tight. While challenging for your children, a rope ladder is entirely safe and durable to use.
4. A playhouse
A clubhouse is a popular hangout spot for youngsters since it provides them with the “kids-only” space they’ve always wanted (think back to all those forts in the living room and those hideouts in the yard). The lower playhouse is usually enclosed, except for a doorway and windows; this little space often adds to the excitement of the playset. Add-on a playhouse to your kid’s swing set to create the perfect playful oasis to encourage your kids to play outside more.
5. Nest swing
Give your children some extra fun with a Premium Metal Nest Swing, perfect for gliding through the air or sitting back and relaxing too. Kids love a two-person swing where they can swing together and play make-believe. Whether they’re making shapes out of the clouds or pretending to pioneer a flying ship, your kids will love the addition of a nest swing.
6. Glider nest swing
Our Glider Nest Swing is a versatile addition to any swing set! Whether you’ve got one user or two, the glider nest swing can function as a two person glider or a one person hammock. Perfect for playing and relaxing! The removable padded seats can add extra comfort, and the padded handlebars and frame provide added protection. We also have options with teal and lime hangers!
7. Growing baby swing seat
If you’ve got an infant who’s growing faster than you can keep track of, you probably need our 3-in-1 Growing Baby Swing Seat! This versatile seat has three different assembly methods to suit babies, toddlers, and children. Simply remove the t-bar and back rest as your child gets larger and more comfortable on the swing. This is the perfect accessory to help your child develop confidence in their body as they grow.
8. Extra toys
We’re sure your kids will agree that the more, the merrier when it comes to toys. Adding a few more gadgets to your swing set is a terrific way to improve it. The ship’s wheel, gigantic binoculars, steering wheel, telescope, and telephone are among our favourites. We recommend getting playcentre, such as this Lookout Tower with swings and monkey bars, if you want to get the most for your money, because it has super awesome accessories already included.
