We've already got an obnoxious house (a new construction built on a spare lot in a 1960s/70s sub), so I'm already feeling self-conscious.
We need something for the kids in the back yard. There is a good kids' park about a 1/4 mile away but obviously I can't take them there every minute or send them alone yet. The big wooden structures with the fort and swings and slide like the Costco one are so cool but sooo big and fancy. The smaller metal ones will be outgrown before we're out of this house. Then there are the smaller wooden ones that don't have as much cool stuff as the big ones. I'm also concerned about the toxicity of the sealer in the wooden sets (although I know the new ones don't have arsenic).
So, what would you do? Is there some cool, bigger, metal one with a fort that I don't know about? For those that have the large wooden structures, do they get used to the full potential? For those that have small sets, would you get a bigger one if you did it again? What would you do? TIA!
