Product Overview

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

With so many exciting features, the lower clubhouse is the perfect place for your children to expand their imagination and stay busy for hours. The deluxe kitchen has everything your little chef needs with a play stove, sink, and accessories- there is even a double sided chalkboard where the menu can go! The lower clubhouse with a working door also features a shaded lower activity area with moveable bench where kids can set up a coloring station, break for a snack, or put on a puppet show. From here your little ones can stay active as they climb the rock-climbing wall to the upper clubhouse covered by a multi-level wooden roof. After waving to you through the decorative windows watch them smile as they cruise down either the extra deep high rail wave slide or the exciting 12' twist n' ride tube slide! And don't forget about the fun your kids will have as they soar through the sky on one of the 2 belt swings or the premium glider for one or two passengers that are attached to the solid swing beam with premium swing components.

Just watch as your child's imagination grows in a playful environment within the safety of their very own Big Backyard Premium Play Set.

Additionally, Big Backyard Premium Play Sets include heavy duty swing hangers and brackets and increased spacing between swings
