I seriously don’t know what we would do without our Backyard Discovery Patriot playset. My kids have spent hours and hours on this playset all summer long. It’s an easy activity for me because I don’t have to think up something creative, I know they will have a fun time playing everytime we head outdoors! It’s a great break for moms while kids have fun. 🙂
My kids love to play alone and together on the set. My daughter heads for the swings first while my son always has to concur the rock wall and slide first. Then, they play together whether it be swinging together or in the sandbox. It’s the one time that I know my kids won’t be fighting because there is plenty for them to do on the playset!
What I’ve noticed this summer is that my kids play differently with other kids come over. It’s like the energy and excitement is cranked up a few levels! They are running and climbing and swinging at full force! The excitement boils over as they start making up stories to play and act out together. There is always some bad guy chasing them or an alien attacking! I caught Elijah in a mid-air jump with his super charged energy! He had just slid down the slide and decided to jump super high! Where do they get the energy to show off like that?!
My kids love to share this playset, it’s large enough to where there is always something for each kid to do without having to wait. We all know how hard it is for kids to wait. I just love the design of this playset and others from Backyard Discovery because they really thought through how kids play. It’s no fun if there isn’t enough activities for the kids to enjoy when kids come over to play. That is when there is jealousy and problems with sharing.
When selecting a playset for your kids, take in consideration how many kids will be playing on the set. If you only have 1 or 2, don’t limit yourself to a tiny playset. Your kids will have friends come over and you’ll want plenty of options for the kids to play on. Plus, with Backyard Discovery, you can order additional features to make the playset “new” each year.
