Outside play is so important to us. We know that the fresh air and clean canvas of inspiration that being outside gives kids is so important to their development, that we make it a priority to spend as much time outside as we can. Thanks to the Oceanview Wooden Swing Set from Backyard Discovery™ we no longer have to travel farther than right outside our front door for the girls to enjoy some swing set fun. This is a sponsored post.

Emmy has had this dream in her heart for a long time… to have a swing set right outside her front door.

Pete and I would always tell her that maybe someday we would get one… but then life would get in the way and before we knew it she was 5 years old and we realized we’d been saying that for years. She was a good sport about it and would casually mention it here and there.

And then one day last week this happened:

Words can’t begin to explain the joy she is feeling! She hollered as she ran towards her new Oceanview Wooden Swing Set saying “this is the best day of my life”! I totally get her happiness. Swing sets really are that awesome. From the moment she wakes up (between 4 and 5 am!) the first thing she asks us now is “when will the sun be up so I can go play on Swingy”? Yes, she even named her swing set!

“Swingy” has been the talk of the town. My parents were cordially invited over to meet “her” and Emmy has already hosted a midday tea/picnic with Ashley in the clubhouse! She has been playing on it before school, after school, and before bed each day. I’ve been bringing my laptop outside while she plays and I think we are both benefiting from the fresh air and fun!

I love having our new Oceanview Wooden Swing Set because it is fun and healthy play. Last night I had to remind Maddie that it was dark and it was time to come inside. She was enjoying it… swinging back and forth while reading a book for school. Swing sets are also a great way to get the kids off the video games, plus they encourage much more imaginative play.

One of the biggest issues that kept us from getting a swing set before was the aesthetics of it in our yard. I didn’t want a metal one because it would stand out awkwardly. Wooden swing sets are much more fun and look better than metal swing sets. We all think that this swing set is beautiful. My dad couldn’t believe how amazing it looked and the details that went into constructing it.

There are so many fun things to do and play with on the Oceanview Wooden Swing Set.

Emmy’s favorite things are the open, airy clubhouse, monkey bars, swings, the 10’ wave slide, and the hammock!

Ashley has been enjoying the challenging monkey bars that lead on to the 5’ high upper deck.

While Maddie has been spending tons of time swinging back and forth. I love seeing her act more like a kid again!

It comes with lumber that is pre-cut, pre-drilled, pre-stained so that you can start installing it right away!

  1. Currently I take my son to a park a couple of blocks away from my home and getting him back into the car from the park is a MELTDOWN! If only I had this set in my backyard, My son can play and never fear getting back into the car to go home! 😀

  2. A swing set with a hammock!? Wow! That is really cool! I remember the swing set we had when I was a kid. We have a lot of pictures of my sisters and me playing on it.

    1. I know that my favorite part would be the hammock. But my kids’ favorite part would definitely be the swings. If we had a swing set, I think my five year old would live in the swing!

  3. I’m sure the kids in my family would be able to imagine this swing set as different settings in a lot of different adventures… They have huge imaginations, and they like to swing haha

  4. I just love this swing-set! It seems to have something for kids of many ages. I think my 10 year old would like laying and reading on the hammock while i think my 5 and 2 year old will be just everywhere on this swing, swinging and sliding! As I’m sure their cousins would be while visiting. Thanks so much for the chance to win it! And btw.. my kids name EVERYTHING so I thought it was cute that your swing has a name lol.

  5. My youngest would love the swings the most! Shes so adventurous! And my 6 year old would love lounging in the hammock! Her favorite thing to do is read outside.

  6. I have 5 kids including 7 year old triplets, this would be AMAZING to win for them and for me, because sending them out to play would be incredible!
