Product Overview

The Appleton Play Set by Big Backyard will provide your children with seasons of active and imaginative play!

It's amazing how much fun this play set can fit into smaller backyards! It has an upper clubhouse with a sandbox underneath so up to 6 friends can play at once! Kids love climbing the rockwall to reach the upper clubhouse where they can draw and colour on the vinyl chalk wall before cruising down the high rail wave slide. In the sandbox your kids can stay busy playing and building for hours on end! The Appleton play set includes all of this and two belt swings!

Just watch as your child’s imagination grows in a playful environment within the safety of their very own Big Backyard. At Big Backyard we are dedicated to producing high quality, safe, and easy to assemble products for our customers. Using 100% Premium Cedar Lumber, the skills and dedication of associates who produce these elite Play Sets are bolstered by a commitment to providing innovative designs and features.
