I decided to order a swing set as a rather last minute gift for Peter’s first birthday and I wanted to find something simple and affordable that would more or less blend in to our newly renovated backyard. My mom was the one who cautioned me against ordering anything too elaborate (there are some truly beautiful high-end swing sets out there!), saying that our swing set growing up was a novelty item that my siblings and I quickly tired of and so it ultimately did little more than kill the grass underneath it. So I set out to find an affordable wooden swing set that would ship quickly and this one checked all the boxes and arrived in less than one week. I ordered this matching bucket swing so Teddy and Peter can use the swing set at the same time and for less than $300, it already feels like a worthwhile purchase! It took Will and my dad a couple hours to build but it’s sturdy, relatively compact, and a real game-changer for that pre-dinner hour. Just thought I’d share in case anyone’s been looking for something similar!
