  • Safety

    We design our wood swingsets to bring the excitement of the common playground to backyards across America. However, we have become the most respected swingset manufacturer in the U.S. by putting safety first, always. As an active ASTM safety committee member, we have gone beyond the normal safety guidelines to ensure your kids are always safe. Here are the safety features included on our swingsets.

    • Recessed bolts and hardware - All bolt connections are recessed, ensuring no cuts, scrapes or torn clothesASTM safety logo
    • Rounded corners and edges - virtually splinter-free
    • Plastisol coated belt and tire swing chains - no more finger pinching
    • Sturdy steel swing connectors – providing a full range of motion
    • Safety handles - helping kids get a grip to the top
    • Interlocking flat steps - making climbing easy
    • Heavy-duty molded slides - Strong enough for the big kids!
    • Safe redwood staining process – 100% safe for children

      Parents Role in Backyard Playground Safety:

    While we do everything we can to maximize kids safety, parents should keep an eye on their children during play to ensure they are using the play structure as intended. Here are a few suggestions to keep your kids backyard play area safe:

    • ASTM guidelines recommended a 6’ safety perimeter around your swingset as well as overhead.

      Teach your kids safe play rules:
    • Look First - Never run in front of or behind someone who is swinging
    • Share - Take turns on tire swings, rock walls, monkey bars, slides and swings
    • Wait until it’s dry – Always wait until the swing set is dry before you play
    • No bullies allowed - No pushing, shoving or roughhousing allowed

      Add a fall surface (ground cover) under your swingset.

    While our wooden swingsets are hand-crafted to eliminate unnecessary cuts and scrapes, we suggest adding a fall surface under your play structure to add another layer of protection for kids – just in case they lose their balance and fall. We recommend to add rubber mats, rubber mulch, wood chips sand or pea gravel under your swing set with tire swing. To see a pros and cons list of the best materials for under a swing set, check out the resources tab on this page. For a detailed guide on swingset fall surfaces, be sure to check out our resources tab on this page.

  • Before You Buy

    This swingset is not intended for public use. It is intended for residential use and is not warrantied for public or commercial use.

    What to consider when buying a swingset?

    Before buying a swingset, always check with your homeowner’s association before assembly. Some HOA’s have height restrictions on building and play structures. Also, determine how much space you have in your yard. Will there be enough space for your children to run around with their friends safely? 

    How many kids can fit comfortably on the swingset?

    This swingset has been designed for use by a maximum of eight children at one time, having a combined weight of 1,200 pounds. This swing set is recommended for children 3 years through 11 years of age.

    How is the swingset delivered?

    Once your swingset is built and ready to ship from our shop in Monroe, MI, the delivery company will contact you to schedule a delivery date and time. The typical swingset will be delivered curbside and comes in multiple bundles/boxes. Some larger packages may need to be opened and hand offloaded to the ground.  It might be helpful to have another person help you bring the components into your backyard, but it not a necessity.

    What is your standard lead time on curbside delivery and professional installation?
    Approximate lead time is usually 3-4 weeks from order date. Lead times may vary during peak season and holidays. Please call our customer service helpline shortly after your order is placed to determine delivery or installation date.

    Can I swing on the swingset with my kids?

    In most cases, parents and grandparents can swing along with kids! Swing beam is rated at 250 pounds per swing position. So, as long as you do not exceed that weight limit per swing, anyone can join in on the adventure. 


    How much space do I really need in my yard?

    The amount of space needed for a safe play experience may vary for each swingset, but we suggest following ASTM’s guidelines of having a 6’ safety area around your swingset. This area should not include any obstructions such as trees, plants, sheds or any other structures. In addition to the safety benefits of a 6’ clearance, it gives kids space to run around in your backyard all day long.

    What kind of construction knowledge do I need to have to assemble your swingsets?

    We welcome anyone to build our swingsets, even those with little do-it-yourself experience. Each swingset kit is pre-cut, ready for assembly and can be built with basic tools, so you don’t have to be Bob Vila to install our swingsets. Actually, parents often comment on how much pride they have building their swingset on their own. Don’t worry, if you have questions during assembly, our dedicated customer service team can answer your questions via phone or online chat.

    Can you install our swingset for me?

    We also offer professional installation on our Premier Redwood Series of swingsets for $299.

    Maintenance Tips:

    Periodic maintenance is suggested to ensure safe enjoyment of your swingset and optional accessories. Be sure to check out wood swingset maintenance checklist within the resources tab on this page.

    Checking, splitting and surfacing cracking are characteristics of all swingsets. This is caused by varying seasonal temperatures and moisture conditions. To minimize this checking and/or cracking, you may coat your swingset with a water repellent.

    Best way to stain the Opening Act swing set:

    The Opening Act swingset is factory stained to provide a beautiful finish and long lasting protection. We recommend staining swing sets once a year to maintain its rich color and naturally resilient qualities.  Prior to staining, clean all wooden components.  Use a high quality water based stain or sealant such as Thompson’s Water Seal® . After staining or sealing, please allow 24 hours to dry before allowing children to start their adventure.

    1. Impressed with Kids Creations

      Posted by Lisa Ward on 3rd Nov 2015

      I wanted to let you know that the set-up of the swing set went very well. My husband started putting it together about noon on Friday. His brother helped later in the afternoon and it was up and half the kids in the neighborhood were playing on it by 7:00pm. It probably would have been up sooner if it had not been such a hot day. We were extremely impressed with how easily it went up. We had heard horror stories about assembling swing sets from other manufactures. We will definitely recommend Kids Creations to our friends.

      Thank you,

    2. Beautiful Wooden Swing Set

Camden was climbing all over it within seconds of putting on the slide! He was so excited. The wood is beautiful, the design is so much fun and child friendly. And our wish child is delighted. It wouldn't have been possible with out Kid's Creations.
