I’m pleased to announce that AkronOhioMoms.com is partnering with Backyard Discovery. We have been given the incredible opportunity to review a Backyard Discovery wooden playset and share our experiences with you online and in person through play dates this summer.
You have probably already seen Backyard Discovery playsets in the stores or around your neighborhood as they are the #1 selling playset manufacturer in the US. Their playsets can be found major retailers such as Walmart, BJs, Sams Club, and Toys-R-Us. They also sell play houses, picnic tables, raised gardens, dog houses, and other products for backyard leisure.

This is an investment that you know will last for years to come. Playsets start at just $399 and up.
Our Backyard Discovery Adventure Begins
There is nothing better than a great playset in the backyard for hours of entertainment and exercise for kids. Playsets are great for year-round fun. We received our shipment from Yellow Truck early this week when it was actually warm and not snowing like it was today in Ohio. My husband and I went right to work to start the project. The kit came with 1 large box for the slide and 3 long boxes with the playset pieces, all in all 580 lbs.
There are many, many pieces of pre-cut cedar wood pieces, screw, bolts, etc. This may seem overwhelming to some but this IS after all a big project. We have experience of building a playset from scratch at our previous home. It involved a lot of time designing, then even more time measuring, sawing, filing, cutting, trimming, etc. Building it from scratch was a LOT more time consuming and overwhelming. The finished project was nice but not as attractive and well laid out as the Backyard Discovery playsets. Backyard Discovery makes it easy to find the best playset for your family and then build it with all of the pieces pre-cut and pre-drilled.
The instruction manual is exhaustive and complete with step-by-step instructions for every element of the wooden playset. Every wood piece has a corresponding number stamped right on the wood. The instructions list out each piece by the part # on the diagram. There is a parts list for each of the 3 boxes with the part numbers of each piece of wood listed. The first thing we did was write on each diagram next to the part number which box the wood piece was in. This saved us a lot of time when actually assembling the wooden playset.
We received the Patriot Playset. It comes with a spiral slide, two landings, picnic area, swings, and a rock climbing wall. Elijah and Elizabeth are eager to play on the playset! With the change in the weather, they will have to wait another few days until warmer weather comes into Ohio for us to complete the project next week.
