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. Use the list of sets on Smyths to decide on the type you need, you will be blown away by the extreme amount of variety we have in stock and the one you ultimately select will be featured in your kids’ lives for many years. 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 needs.
