The best outdoor playsets are commercial-grade structures. These are the durable, heavy-duty systems made from high-quality materials like powder-coated galvanized steel, rotationally-molded plastic, etc. You will see this version of a playset in public spaces like schools, parks, daycares or churches. Great playsets will be made from the highest quality materials, IPEMA-certified, ASTM compliant and a true adventure for children at play. Outdoor play systems bring learning outside, offering children a chance to get some exercise, enjoy fresh air and socialize with other children. Physical activity can relieve stress, regulate sleep, build key developing muscle groups and encourage social interaction among children. For this reason, it is important to find the right play structure for the children in each community. These can be smaller units with plenty of ground level elements for infants and toddlers, or big installations with climbers and spiral slides for elementary-age kids.
