Best for Little Climbers: A-Frame Hideaway and Climber $99.99

If your little mountaineer isn't’ ready for a full swing set just yet, the A-Frame Hideaway and Climber is the mini-peak for them. At just 3’ high and with six easy-to-grab climbing rocks, this little climber is ideal for toddlers and preschoolers. When they’re ready for a break, they can cozy up in the hideaway tent.

Best for Small Yards: Appleton Swing Set $582.99

If you’ve got 80 sq feet to spare in your yard, you’ve got room for the Appleton Swing Set and its rockwall!

As a climber, the Appleton is great for preschoolers and toddlers. While older kids will handle the rockwall/ladder with ease, they’ll still love to swing, slide, and play in the playhouse!
