This article is about the unveiling their new "Sun Valley" collection of swing set made by Gorilla Playsets. This new collection has 2 new models named the Sun Valley I, and the Sun Valley II. Each one of these new models will provide an awesome adventure for kids in their own backyard. Beautifully looking in appearance and built to last these are two fantastic new additions to Gorilla's product line.
The design team at the factory really created new features and styles that have the consumers in awe! The reviews are positive due to the commitment of this company, to produce safe and strong wooden playsets for children. They truly believe that your children's safety should be their number one concern. They even include a safety checklist of rules for parents to review with all kids using the playset. When you take the time to teach your children the rules of playing on a swing set you are helping them to understand the dangers that can occur when the equipment is not used properly. By following the list of warnings it reduces the likelihood of a serious accident or injury.
The Sun Valley I and Sun Valley II are basically they same unit except the Sun Valley II comes with monkey bars and the Sun Valley I does not offer this feature. The price difference between the 2 models is about $200.00 and that is the cost of the monkey bars. The monkey bars are separate from the swing beam and for safety reason this is one design feature you want to have. Other manufacturers build the monkey bars above the top beam. When is use, what happens is when the kids are using this feature they need to make sure no one is swinging below because the monkey bars are above.
What is nice about these Sun Valley collection is the platform of the fort is 4' X 6' and the height is five feet tall. The bold two stripe heavy-duty canopy, made of vinyl, provides ample shade to the tower on hot summer days. Underneath the tower is a brightly colored yellow turbo tire swing with a swivel. It is this swivel hardware attachment that gives this swing the ability to spin in a 360 degree radius. The rock wall has a climbing rope which is great for children and helps build upper body strength. Kids get a work out without realizing it and if the rock wall wasn't sufficient this playset also has a deluxe rope ladder for more climbing fun! Both units have green extreme slides, steering wheel, telescope, tic-tac toe spinner panel, and flag kit.
All of these tower toys are included with the wood playset and that means a huge savings because these kid favorite swing set accessories won't have to be added on later. This standard equipment is unbelievable and valued at approximately $190.00 if you had to purchase alone. The swing bay offers enough room for two belt swings and one trapeze bar. If you need a baby swing, they are sold separately and are easily interchangeable with this unit.
