Naturally Playful Lookout Treehouse by Step2
Now this is one of the most adorable playsets on this whole list. The Naturally Playful Lookout Treehouse by Step2 was designed to look like a cute tree-house and it is raised a little bit of the ground. Not too high though so it is perfectly safe. Speaking of safe the hard molded plastic that this is made from is very strong and will last for many, many years.
Anyway at one side of the treehouse you have a little climbing ladder and at the other side is the super fun slide. This is for kids aged 18 months to five years old and we can assure you this is something kids will have a lot of fun with.
Peek-A-Boo Caterpillar Climbing Structure by ECR4Kids
Here we have the Peek-A-Boo Caterpillar Climbing Structure by ECR4Kids this as you can see is just adorable. It has a lovely caterpillar design that kids aged 2 -4 are just going to love.
The climbing frame is full of holes for them to climb up on and it even serves as a tunnel that they can climb through. We are sure to a toddler this tunnel will seem huge and they will love crawling through it and coming out the other side.
The Peek-A-Boo Caterpillar is ideal if you have a couple of kids or if your child has little friends who like to come round and play as it can handle many kids at a time.
Geometric Dome Climber by Lifetime
The Geometric Dome Climber by Lifetime is one of the best outdoor playsets on this list. This is the kind of classic playset that you see on playgrounds all over the world. The price of almost $170 is actually quite fair as this is made from high quality and strong as an ox steel that can handle a total weight of 600 pounds.
The recommended age for this is 3 – 10. Now we would suggest that if your child is around 3 that you keep an eye on them when they are pretending to be Spider-Man on this thing as it is much higher than it looks.
This is a great outdoor playset and one that will see years of use. Also it requires no maintenance at all. Once built you just leave it outside as the weather cannot damage it.
Flyer 500 by Radio Flyer
The Flyer 500 by Radio Flyer is the kind of outdoor toy that is so cool that even kids above the recommended 2 – 5 year age range will want a shot and that goes for the dads too! This is a lot of fun. It is like an amusement park ride.
The Flyer 500 features a cool little race car which kids are going to really like as all kids love race cars. Then there is a six foot track for them to zoom down. There’s no need to worry though as this is made to be as safe as possible and the plastic the ramp is made out of is actually more forgiving than it looks.
This is the kind of thing that is really going to tire them out as they will be up and down it a million times by the end of the day! This is a lot of fun and as well as using the race car that comes with it. They can also put their toy cars down it as well.
Little Tikes Shady Jump ‘n Slide Bouncer
Ok so we know the first thing that has popped into your mind about the Little Tikes Shady Jump ‘n Slide is “I wonder if I can have a go?” Well sorry this is for kids only, but the kids will have an amazing time on it.
This is a bouncy wonderland that features a good sized bouncy house that can easily fit 3 kids at a time on it. They will have a great time bouncing around doing all kinds of fun stunts.
One really cool thing about this is that Little Tikes clearly thought about safety as there is a mesh net around the bouncy house to prevent them from falling out. A huge part of the fun is the bouncy slide which they can go down and climb back up time and time again.
The Little Tikes Shady Jump ‘n Slide has a roof for sun protection, which we consider a big plus. No doubt this will be great for the long summer months when you want to spend time outside or even if you have a birthday party coming up.
Definitely one of the best outdoor playsets for kids on the market. Just note this is for toddlers and 3 children is the max that can be on it at a time.
Next up we have the Rocker Seesaw which happens to be one of the friendlier priced playsets we are looking at, but despite it’s rather low cost it’s still very worthy of a place on this best outdoor playsets lists.
This is like a mix between a seesaw and a classic teeter totter. It fits two kids, who then rock back and forth, most likely trying to see how fast they can go before one of them feels like they will fall out! Do not worry as this is very child safe as it is made with powder coated steel and high quality plastic.
The Rocker Seesaw is the kind of outdoor toy that does not take up a whole lot of space either so if you wanted you could always put it in the shed or garage during the winter months. At under 60 bucks and for ages 3 to 10 this is ideal if you want an outdoor playset, but do not want to spend a fortune on it.
Super Spinner Swing
Another friendly priced outdoor playset is the Super Spinner Swing which comes in at around 60 bucks. This is a lot of fun and ideal if you have a big tree in your yard. The Super Spinner Swing comes with a kit that lets you hang the swing safely and securely. It is important to note that you have to have somewhere strong to connect this to.
The recommended age for this is 3 and up. It can hold up to 300 pounds and handle up to two kids! The super spinner swing is a lot of fun and chances are your arms are going to be very tired from pushing the kids on it all day. The smiles on their face though make it well worthwhile.
One thing we do like about this is that it really does not take up much space at all.
Spinning Teeter Totter by Gym Dandy

It has a very strong frame that has a powder coated finish. This has a back support so that it is nice and easy for younger kids to play on.
What is great about this teeter totter is that as well as going up and down it can also spin around 360 degrees!
