Second is the finish: Most are made to be biodegradable and are safely painted with non-toxic paint which is lead free. Many are hand painted, inked or oiled by craftsman. Dyes used should be child-safe, paints should be water-based and natural oil finishes look beautiful. Most wood toys are hand-crafted with love with special attention give to the smallest detail.

Important safety issues include the stability and structural strength of the swing set. Look for swing sets that are structurally solid and have more board footage per swing set than most swing sets on the market.

Make sure all the hardware on a swing set is recessed, leaving no rough, exposed or sharp edges that can hurt your children. Recessed hardware should not be covered with plastic caps as ASTM considers this to be a choking hazard.

Swing ropes should be UV protected, double braided rope woven tighter in order to reduce stretch and to retain it’s strength over time. Yellow color retracts harmful UV rays that can cause dry rot damage. For added strength and safety, use 1/2-inch rope vs. smaller 3/8-inch rope that many manufacturers select. Some manufacturers use a heavy-grade wire wrap to hold the rope, which could come loose or scratch your child.
