slide-2According to the Center for Disease Control, children and adolescents should have 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. What better way to lure them away from all the media and electronic devices, than to put in a swing set! Better yet, nothing evokes the feeling of nostalgia like lemonade and a swing set on a warm sunny day.

In the early 1980’s, the only quality playground products available for the backyard were very expensive, pre-cut wooden swing sets with very few other alternatives. The Swing-N-Slide company was established in 1985 as America’s first do-it-yourself wooden playground manufacturer. Long Bros has carried the Swing-N-Slide brand for years because the quality of the product is wonderful. In one kit you can choose from 3-5 different layout styles.

1890-1900 In the late 1800’s when child labor laws successfully increased the minimum working age, newly idle children had no safe place to play in urban areas. Setting aside space and creating playground equipment, then, became the heart of a movement backed by women and educators in many private associations.
