Whether your child is a fan of real life astronauts like Sally Ride or simply fictional ones like Major Tom, the Backyard Discovery Sky Chaser Wood Swing Set will help propel their dreams through the clouds all the way up to the stars. One of the most magical aspects of childhood is the ability to transform the mundane into the fantastical. With a child’s imagination, the swings turn into speeding rockets that can break through the atmosphere and the pull of Earth’s gravity. The upper clubhouse becomes a shuttle command. And the slides allow them that first leap down onto an uncharted celestial body. But whether your young ones are big dreamers or just active players, there’s nothing mundane about this play set. The speedy slides, challenging monkey bars, and high-flying swings all provide an opportunity for kinetic play that helps children develop gross motor skills and a natural love of outdoor exercise, which will increase their chances for a long, happy, and healthy life. And by working out their bodies, kids are also able to better clear their minds, which will allow them to better focus when mental concentration is needed instead - you know, for those difficult science classes they’ll need to become a real astronaut.
Parents will love this play structure’s sturdy construction with high-quality materials. Using 100 percent cedar, this play set is naturally resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage. The plastic coated 4 x 4s also provide extra strength in securing the five-foot-high upper deck and the four-foot-high sun porch. And kids will love all the extra features, from the swings, slides, and sandbox to the smaller design details, such as the scalloped roof with an attractive awning and sunburst end gables.
About Backyard Discovery
Hoping to encourage a healthier model of living, Backyard Discovery starts with active outdoor play for children. Producing residential play sets that feature hundreds of possible configurations, a wide range of accessories, and truly unique safety features, Backyard Discovery has become a leader in outdoor play structures. Though Backyard Discovery is the product of a merger between Leisure Time Products and Backyard Adventures in 2007, their history and experience stretches way back to 1968, when the original parent company began producing outdoor-grade plastic and metal products for a variety of industries, like agriculture. Backyard Discovery has now chosen to direct its focus toward outdoor family leisure, trying to promote fresh air, friendship, exercise, and imagination. Moving forward, the company has begun to branch out from play sets to include gardening and patio products as well as sheds and dog houses, aiming to create a happy healthy outdoor environment for the whole family.
