Guest Post By Tess Young ~ How to Choose the Perfect Outdoor Playset for your Toddler

Trying to figure out ways to keep your toddler busy can be a challenge. A toddler’s attention span changes at a whim. Therefore, it can be difficult to find something that keeps their attention span for very long. However, there are many outdoor playsets for toddlers that will keep their attention span long enough for you to give you a nice break.

Most outdoor playsets for toddlers include swings, slides, and crossing bridges similar to want you find at a park. These outdoor playsets are usually packed with a great deal of fun for any toddler and will keep them occupied for awhile. Since the summertime is just around the corner, you may be trying to decide the Perfect Outdoor Playset for your Toddler.



















Material

Understand the different types of materials that playsets are made of, such as wood, plastic or metal. Nowadays, some are made out of recycled material too. Wood is pretty durable but rainy weather can cause it to rot. Wood can also be dangerous to small children who may pick or even eat pieces of the wood. Plastic is not very strong and can be easily damaged, but it can cause less injury to the child because of its weight. Metal is very durable but can easily injury the child. Recycled material may be your best bet.

Assembly

You don’t want to spend all summer or spring putting the playset together. Find out how easy it is to assemble the playset. How many tools are needed and how many parts are included. The store may assemble the playset for you for a fee. Of course, you can save money by purchasing a playset that is already assembled or can be put together with little effort. There are playsets that can be put together by snapping the parts in place.

Cost

There are different types of playsets. Part of your decision will be how much the playset cost, so it will be important to look for discounts or online coupons that will help you save money. You don’t need to pay a fortune for a playset, especially since it won’t be used all the time. Not to mention, eventually your toddler will outgrow it in a few years. Look online at 1. Home Depot Coupon Codes 2. GreatDeals.com website for reference: GreatDeals.com for great deals and discounts on outdoor playsets and Home Depot sells outdoor playsets. To save even more money, buy a playset during the off-season.

Safety

It is very important to be aware of the safety features on the playsets. Children can be easily injured and susceptible to things adults are not susceptible to. Be sure safety latches and railings are working and are properly attached. Make sure there are no warnings or recalls for the product. You may want to consider buying a playset that has a roof attached to it to protect the children from the sun.

Variety

Look for playsets that have extra add-ons to add more fun and activities for your toddler.

Maintenance

Be sure to follow the manual’s instructions for properly maintaining the set. Wood sets may need to be refinished yearly. Find out if there is a warranty on the playset.
