 Great outdoor toy/equipment?

Anyone have a swing/slide/playhouse to recommend?

My FIL saw this one and offered to buy it for DD but I'm wondering how long she would get use of it, and if there are any others ones I should be looking into?

My sister in law has one similar to this and the two older kids don't have an interest in it anymore. They prefer the larger scale one. So I would say you'd get about a year out of it.

Yeah I'm wondering if this would be a better idea:

I, personally, think it would get longer use. Playhouses are great for all ages!

Chloebelle, my nephew has that play house and he loves it. He is 2.5 years and has had it since he was around 1. He gets a lot of use out of it

My advice is anything 2nd hand. The stuff is so durable that it's worth it to just see what you can get 2nd/3rd/4th hand and save some cash.

A friend has that exact one (different colors) and it's tiny. When we are there, DD (18 months) likes to climb up, but the slide is so short she doesn't get excited about it. She doesn't ever last long in a swing, but our friend's DD (12 months) I think likes it. DS (4.5) and my friend's DS (3) will climb on to it but are too big for the slide and swing. I think it's super cute, but I'd never buy it new for your DD's age because it really seems geared to the 12-18 month crowd.

RNR that's what I thought from the picture (the slide being really short).

Oh, and the back to get up to the slide is like a little climbing wall, not steps.
