    1. A classic swing set with two seats and a swinging trapeze bar that's easy to assemble and ideally suited for small yards.

    2. An upgraded version of the classic swing set, so you'll have a rock-climbing wall, wave slide, and play deck with a roof in addition to the swing seats and trapeze bar.

    3. A small cedar swing set with a rock climbing wall, wave slide, built-in chalkboard, and covered upper play deck to stay slightly shaded on those hot summer days.

    4. A massive Little Tikes swing set large enough for 12 kids to play at once so your backyard will officially be *the* go-to hangout spot on the street.

    5. A UV- and rust-resistant swing set with a sandbox, built-in telescope, picnic table, and enough room to accommodate and entertain four energetic kids at a time.

    6. A small and simple heavy-duty swing set to make busy parents' lives a *little* easier with an assembly time of under two hours.

    7. A large cedar swing set for anyone looking for something a little less, well, traditional. It features a two-person swing, an elevated bridge, a staircase, a hammock, and more to keep the kids busy all day long.

    Promising review: "I am very happy with this swing set! My toddler is able to climb the ladder easily and the slide feels really safe, which is awesome. I can sit back and relax while he plays. I also appreciate that it included ground stakes to secure it. I purchased some separately but they aren't needed. It looks great in my yard and I'm very happy." –AndiM

    Get it from Lowe's for $799.

    10. Or a splurge-worthy Backyard Discovery Skyfort II set which, yes, sounds like something out of Star Wars, so your little Jedi's imagination can run wild. Its equipped with two swings, monkey bars, a rock wall, slide, telescope, and so much more.

    Promising reviews: "Our kids absolutely love this swing set. They are outside in our backyard playing on it the minute they arrive home from school. It was a worthwhile investment. So much fun!" –Lisa P.

    This is one solid playhouse paradise and my kiddos absolutely love it! The assembly will take a while, so be prepared for that, but otherwise the product is definitely worth the effort and time spent in assembly. Great purchase!" –Kim W.

    Get it from Overstock for $2,315.99 (originally $2,710.32). 

    11. Or if you're not looking to do any major building: a wooden tree swing that you can easily attach to some sturdy branches and call it a day.
