Eastern Jungle Gyms – The New Standard for Child’s Play

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 15, 2020

Since 1992, Eastern Jungle Gym® has delivered innovative, safe, and affordable jungle gyms and swing sets that last. It takes fine craftsmanship to outlive the children that we serve. You’ve seen kids destroy lesser quality play stations, but you’ve never seen them beat the Eastern Jungle Gym systems.

So let’s take a moment to review just why that is and why they are the jungle gym of choice in and around Seekonk:

1. All construction is 100% Cedar (C. lanciolata). Because cedar is naturally resistant to rot and insect damage, no chemical treatment is necessary to preserve the wood (unlike other woods).

2. All Wood is sanded, with edges and corners rounded. Each piece is then factory-stained before installation. This ensures a safe and long-lasting finish.

3. Huge 4” x 6” and 4” x 4” Engineered Thru-Bolt Construction, plus the patent-pending Steel Bracket System, means you never rely on any single bolt or fastener alone. All the load-bearing points are double supported.

4. Heavy Duty Slides—sturdy wave slides with high side rails, and scoop slides with double-wall construction.

5. Heavy Duty Swing Hangers— heavy-duty swing hangers are the safest and strongest. Made of steel and cast iron mounted with thru-bolts.

6. Lag Bolt & Wood Screw Fasteners—never nails or staples! Lag bolts do not need re-tightening like carriage bolts or other through-bolt fasteners, so there’s no need for annual maintenance or service.

7. Recessed Hardware means that all bolts are countersunk for a safe and aesthetically-pleasing look. No caps! Exposed bolts can create a hazard for loose clothing to catch on.

8. Straight coil Swing Chain is heated, primed, and Plastisol-Coated for a safe, smooth grip. No ropes or powder-coated chain!

9. Steel Ladder Rungs— unmatched in strength and safety. Wood step ladder rungs for easier access—6-inch wide steps for sure footing.10: All 4x4 and 4x6 beams use engineered thru-bolt construction, with the Exclusive Flush-Mount Fastener System.

The Fireplace Showcase Seekonk, MA - Swing sets

With the stay-at-home orders in-place, combined with the recent poor weather, many of our kids have been focused on television and their phone screens after they have finished their schooling. It is very hard nowadays to get our kids off of these gadgets, especially as we try to catch up with work at home. Additionally, kids are using phones and computers to learn at home, which makes getting them away from technology even more challenging. But, investing in an ultimate swing set will help them learn, examine, assess, and come up with their own fun while swinging, sliding, and playing. Getting outside is great exercise and greatly helps physical and mental health. It also helps mom and dad catch-up or take a breather! Make outdoor playtime accessible and exciting by allowing kids to run out into the their own backyard.

Our wooden swing sets are great old fashioned fun with a modern twist. Children can enjoy the fun of an imaginary world in their own backyard and while getting fresh air. But the biggest benefit: when you tell them to "go outside" so you can finish your work, make dinner, or take a break you will have zero guilt! While swing sets are great additions to your backyard they also have huge benefits for your kids. They challenge the imagination and each slide, step, swing and leap your kids engage in builds their confidence. This helps them release anxiety, makes them feel good, and boosts their self-esteem.

Lastly, swing sets and jungle gyms promote an active lifestyle. They offer a healthy outlet to release stress and excess energy. When you give them the fun of a swing set, you can relax as well knowing that their mind is sharpening and their body is getting stronger, but most importantly, they are having fun!
