Choosing Your Garden Swing Set
With so many different kinds of swing sets on the market to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. To help, we’re breaking it down – this article will cover the different sizes, prices and materials that TP toys swingsets are made from, so you can make an informed decision about your next garden toy purchase.
Different Outdoor Swing Set Sizes
When considering your next swing set, you need to first ensure the space you have to utilise. We offer swingsets in a variety of sizes – single swings, double swings and triple swings - plus you can often add on extensions with things like toddler swing seats, and wavy slides to make the ultimate kids swing and slide set.
Before shopping for your next favourite outdoor toy, measure up the space in your garden so you know how big or small you need the set to be. Then you can work out which will be the best set for you.

We have a brand new AR feature on our website! Open up the TP Toys website on your phone and select the swing you’re considering, then step out into your garden and use the brilliant AR feature to see what it will look like in place. It couldn’t be easier!
How much does Garden Swing Sets cost?
The price of swings will vary depending on things like size (for example if you’re choosing a baby swing set or one for bigger children) and the material used to make them. At TP Toys our swing sets start from under £100 for a single metal swing set. Of course, the bigger the swing set and the more accessories and options you add on etc - the higher the cost.
It’s worth considering the longevity of the swing set too. For instance, if you have more than one child, getting one that can seat multiple children might be a good idea, even if they’re too little to use it right now. TP Swingsets are of amazing quality that offer hours of fun and will last you for years, so buying something now that can still be used and loved in years to come by everyone is a good idea.
