When you finally decide to take the plunge and add a kids swing set to your yard, you really want something that is tough, durable and well, built like a brick you know what. And since that is the case, Gorilla Swing Sets should at least be on your list of brands to consider. As I mentioned in an earlier post here on our site, it’s a jungle out there (pun intended) when you start looking for a swing set for your kids and that goes for either metal or wood.
Up to this point we really haven’t zeroed in on any particular brand and have been more or less just giving you general information on the different types. You know, redwood, metal and so forth. But now we’ll take a look at a certain swing set manufacturer and give you some concrete reasons on why they should make your short list when it gets close to plunking down your hard earned money to make your kids happy.
A Little History On Gorilla Swing Sets
It’s no secret that all of us like to do business with companies that have a little bit of history to them. Companies who have endured in a marketplace due to the fact that they make a quality product that consumers buy and like. Would you agree with me on that? Ok, kinda thought so. And since we do agree, let’s take a look at Gorilla Swing Sets and see why they not only have survived, but have become a leader in the manufacturing of backyard play equipment.
One thing I like to look at when making a larger purchase is to look at just how long a certain company has been in business. After all, you wouldn’t want to buy a swing set from Frank & Louie’s Swing Set Kingdom that just opened up in vacant lot down the street because you have no idea if they’ll even be there a month from now. So stability of a company should carry some weight when it comes time to make the buying decision. Right?
Gorilla Playsets is actually the name of the company, although you will hear it referred to more often than not as Gorilla Swing Sets here because the majority of what the company sells is naturally, kids swing sets. The company is based in Canton, Georgia and has been for over 20 years. There’s that longevity thing that I mentioned earlier. Currently the company offers more than 46 different variations of wooden swing sets. Uh huh, 46. So no matter what you might have in mind in regards to a configuration for your yard, you would be hard pressed NOT to find a Gorilla swing set that would meet and probably exceed your needs. Oh, and they come in just about every price range that you can think off.
A Look At The Quality That Goes Into Gorilla Swing Sets
Without sounding like a broken record or something, you don’t survive in a market for nearly two decades if you build a crap product or have lousy customer service. Especially when it’s anything that has to do with our kids. So now let’s take a little peak at how these swing sets are made.
First let’s start with the wood used. Each swing set is composed of choice grade cedar . This offers the combination of long life for the swing set along with rot resistance. Each piece is pre-drilled at the factory so that when the set arrives, the only job that you will have is the final assembly. And while were on the subject of assembly, you won’t need a whole lot of tools to get the job done nor will you need to have an engineering degree in order to understand the assembly instructions! In fact, the manuals are quite simple and use large 3D drawings to help you along in the process.
All the chains that are used in the swing sets are coated in Plastisol so there is no worrying about anyone getting pinched fingers. Slides are molded from commercial grade plastic to resist discoloration and cracking. All the wood is sanded and stained. All mounting hardware is recessed. In other words, Gorilla has taken the time to make sure your swing set is safe. Put this all together and now maybe you can understand why these swing sets have become a favorite of many parents.
The biggest problem you probably will encounter should you decide that these Gorilla swing sets are right for your family, is picking out just what fun stuff you want to have included! You’ll see what I mean once you start checking all the various models. But hey, that’s actually part of the fun. In fact, why not gather everyone around and let your kids have a little bit of input. Bottom line is this. If you want quality, if you want affordability, if you want variety, if you want to know your purchase is backed by a solid company, then go take a look at these Gorilla swing sets. I think you’re going to be pleasantly surprised.
