I'm thinking of getting a swingset/playset for our yard. I have a 5-year-old ds and a dd who will be 2 in September. Our yard is fairly small, and ds has very little interest in playing in the yard. I'm hoping a swingset might provide enough fun to keep both kids outside this summer, and I think it would be fun for playdates. But I rarely see neighborhood kids playing on their playsets, and I wonder if they're worth the expense. We do have a couple of playgrounds within walking distance, and a few more that are 5-10 minute drive from us. Maybe that's more fun than a backyard playset? Do your kids use your playset? Was it a good purchase?
