Eastern Jungle Gym Debuts DIY Cedar Swing Set Kits

For 17 years, Eastern Jungle Gym has been manufacturing high-quality residential swing sets and specialty jungle gyms, designed to create childhood memories for consumers as well as generate sales and installation revenue for retailers. Now, for the first time, the company has entered the do-it-yourself market with a unique, new line of swing set kits called Kid-Gymz.

“All Kid-Gymz swing sets come complete and ready to assemble,” says Rolf Zimmermann, vice president of sales. “They are made of 4×4 and 4×6 premium cedar wood that is pre-cut and factory stained and sealed; and they utilize our patent-pending bracket system, which cuts assembly time in half, compared to other kits on the market. Not only does it save time, but it’s the strongest and safest system available.”

Kid-Gymz incorporate only the highest-quality hardware and heavy-duty accessories, making them strong enough for adults to use them. The kits come in three versions: the Classic 3-Position Swing Kit; the Deluxe 3-Position Swing Kit with Slide, Tent Top, and Playdeck; and the Supreme 3-Position Swing Kit with Slide and Double Playdeck, which features a bottom play house and rock climbing wall. Universal accessories include sling swing, infant swing, horse glider, steering wheel, telescope, binoculars, and much more.

“For retailers who’ve ever thought about selling swing sets, Kid-Gymz are the perfect way to start, allowing you to compete with box stores and specialty retailers,” Zimmermann states. “Retail pricing starts under $500, which is sure to bring customers into your store. And in these challenging economic times, Kid-Gymz provide a unique product to offer your customers, while helping you stay ahead of your competitors.”

“Backyard Vacations’ Are Becoming More Popular

With fuel costs on the rise, a growing number of families in Canada are spending more time at home in their backyard enjoying the outdoors. To occupy the kids while the family is in the backyard – and to help children develop their co-ordination as well as giving them more physical exercise – parents are turning to outdoor playground sets.

These are not the simple backyard swing sets with two swings and a slide that you played with as a child – today’s high quality, sophisticated, wooden ‘play systems’ are multifaceted devices that offer a variety of choices and options such as swings, gym rings, trapeze bars, gliders, spiral tube slides, monkey bars, gang planks and tree houses, just to mention a few.

Generally speaking, outdoor wooden play systems are designed for children ages two and up, however, an infant swing can be used for children 8-12 months old. These sets are made to withstand all weather conditions and are easy to maintain – only requiring periodical staining or sealing of the wood.

And contrary to popular belief, your kids will use them in the fall and winter months as well as in the warmer weather months.

Popular play sets from Eastern Jungle Gym Inc.®, which manufactures a wide array of jungle gyms, include the Dream®, Sky®, Fantasy®, and Imagination® models. These play sets include clubhouses that range from 1.5m to 2.1m (5 ft. to 7 ft.) in height with multiple slides and activities. There is even a ‘Tree House’ model for the dad who never got around to building one of his own as a child …
