Even though we got this enormous play set, I still wanted to build the kids a separate set of swings.... for several reasons. You couldn't use the swings and monkey bars at the same time. That was the cause of many fights. The swings were just too low, no fun, and the swing beam itself has seen better days. It has a crack and makes some unsettling noises.
Dad and I put together this wonder of mechanical engineering. The swings are about 9' tall and provide much more enjoyment than those dinky play set swings.
