Where to Buy Outdoor Playsets and Swing Sets

In today’s day and age, you can buy outdoor playsets in about as many places as you can buy K-cups. But here’s the question: should you?

From our experience, you can tell quite a bit about a playset’s quality based on where it’s sold. Chances are a quality outdoor playset dealer won’t stake their reputation on an inferior product. However, if you buy a swing set at a big box store, you can expect to purchase a generic and substandard product.

At Adventure World Play Sets, we’re dedicated to ultra-safe and premium-quality playsets and swing sets. That’s why we answer the question, “Where to buy outdoor playsets?” with, “From our Dealer Network”. We’re breaking down all of the different places to buy outdoor playsets — and what you can expect.

Playset Dealers to Choose From

We can’t 100% guarantee the quality of a playset at any store (except for at our own AMAZING dealers), but this is what we’ve learned and seen from our long history building children’s play equipment. Here’s where to buy outdoor playsets and swing sets — and what you can expect when you do.

Big Box or Department Stores

The stores that sell anything and everything also sometimes have swing sets or playsets for sale. The sets you’ll find at brand name stores are most often there because they come at a bottom-of-the-barrel price — and can be an impulse buy for parents who haven’t done their research. In our experience, big box stores only sell wooden playsets — and fairly small ones at that. Even though the price is micro-sized, getting your money’s worth will still be a challenge! Learn more about cheap wooden playset downsides.


One of the riskiest places to buy a swing set or a playset is directly from a website. While doing your research online is a great place to start, buying online without ever seeing the set can pose some issues. First of all, you can’t confirm that you are comfortable with the playset quality and safety features for your children. Cheap online sets often use inferior quality Chinese cedar, non-stainless steel brackets and fabric that molds easily. In addition, there are some online playset scams targeting parents looking to buy a playset on the cheap — learn more about how to identify and avoid these scams.

Wholesale Stores

The same stores that sell 20-pound bags of dog food occasionally carry lines of outdoor play equipment. Once again, you’ll probably mostly find a variety of wooden playset and swing set brands that your kids will run through quickly. In addition to likely not having any guarantee of quality from the playset manufacturer or the store, the wholesale club won’t build the set in your backyard.

Adventure World Play Sets Dealers

What can you expect from our Adventure World Play Sets dealer network? A wide selection of premium Adventure World Play Sets products, a knowledgeable team to help you find the right one for your family, and the ability to customize your own set.

One of the reasons we hear time and time again that our customers are so glad they picked Adventure World Play Sets is that they are pleased with the quality and that we encourage customization. When you buy from a sell-it-all store, your only options are whatever they have in-store on the sales floor. When you work with one of our dealers, you can switch accessories or add extra features and accessories that your kids will love — or design a completely custom set from the ground up.

The best swingset company, in my opinion! We are an independent contractor that works for a lot of companies. Adventure world swingsets are built very well. They will last more than one generation.

We have been trying to purchase one of these play sets for months and none of the dealers in our area will call us back about purchasing one. I wish the purchasing process was easier than "find a vendor in your local area". No one here wants to build them! The Happy Hideout looks like an amazing product for my toddler to grow into. I'm sad no one will build them or call us back. Edit: The company contacted me personally and found a vendor in my area!
