Kid’s slides and swing sets are all the rage at Smyths Toys. There is nothing better than an outdoor toy or swing, or even a
combination of the two. Boys and girls of all ages love to play; they love nothing better than rollicking outside on a warm
summer’s day. Wooden swing and slide sets are the ideal toy for toddlers and small children; in fact kids of any age can enjoy
the safe, heart-pounding fun of sliding and swinging. Purchase a swing set or a brand new slide from Smyths today and give your
children the outdoor advantage.
One should always keep slide safety in mind when children are playing outdoors. If your children can
recognise and avoid any hazardous situations, then they will always maintain a fun and exciting playtime. Your child can learn
about slide safety as they play in the playground, or even in their own backyard. We are all well aware that when a child
visits their nearby park, they run like mad to the slides. Kids love to climb, to play and to slide especially - therefore the
parent or the guardian can also advise the child on the guidelines that lead to safe sliding.
One of the first rules is to always go down the slide feet first, not on your head or stomach.
This particular guideline applies to all swings sets, be they combo houses and wooden swing sets. Your child should understand
why it is exactly that they should not go down a slide headfirst nor run up the slide. Kids should be taught to look out for
any oncoming sliders, and to check if the slide is clear. When a child is at the end of the slide, they should move rapidly off
the slide so that they can make way for the next child who is inevitably sliding down. Adult supervision must always be
present, to ensure that your child plays safe.
Kids, preschoolers and toddlers need recreational activities just as much as adults do; there is no
doubt about that. Their schoolwork is important, yet your child will often need to take a break, to step away from their busy
schedules. It is at this point that one can begin to consider installing a kids slide in the back garden.
When it comes to purchasing a swing set you will discover that there are many issues that must be
faced before a final decision is made. As an example, the outdoor area of your home will of course differ in size to the
outside area of another home; this is why it is best to choose your swing set with a great amount of care and patience. Check
your space, before purchasing a set that overshadows your entire backyard!
Next up should definitely be the exact type of swing set that you wish to have in your back garden.

We would like to note that there is always an option for you. As an example, one person may wish to go with a tiny swing and
slide set as they have toddlers who wish to use a miniature version of a larger slide. Others may wish for just the swing, or
just the slide. Smyths has many options as outlined below, and we will assist you in finding the correct slide for your child’s
