Tesco Single Swing And Glider Set £19.97 @ Tesco Direct
This frame has a single rope swing, and a glider, which takes two children. Unbelievably, and the thing I LOVE about it, is that the set is identical to the one I had as a child, some *cough* thirty *cough* years ago! Even the colour is almost the same. There's something reassuring about this, knowing that no matter what else changes basically kids still enjoy the same sorts of things that they always have. Tesco has dropped £40 off the price of their Single Swing and Glider Set, now £19.97.
I've already got a trampoline and a sandpit in the garden. But I may have to try and squeeze in one more piece of equipment. Would be lovely to know that my son had some similar childhood memories to me!
As always with Tesco, the same caveats about the delivery apply. You can pick up items for free, but only from certain stores. So make sure there is one near you that will take deliveries for collection. As I've mentioned in the past, while certain PlayPennies colleagues live out in the sticks they have their pick of stores to collect from. In the meantime, none of the stores around me offer the service here in the middle of London! Am I bitter...
According to the website the Tesco Single Swing & Glider Set has a sturdy powder-coated steel frame and an all-weather paint finish. Ground anchors are supplied, as are tools for assembly, which Tesco claims is easy to do. Recommended age is 3+.
Thanks to blister at HUKD!
