The hot weather may be over, but it’s still warm enough to get a killer backyard play set up for next year — and Amazon Prime Day is here to help with some fantastic deals. This summer taught us the value of a really good outdoor space — one that encourages safe and exploratory play for kids (and therefore peace for parents). Swing sets are expensive, though, especially the ones that are high-quality, wooden, well-designed, or — if you’re lucky — all three. This Prime Day deal — only good for a few hours! — has your number.
The Grizzly Grotto is really well designed: It has a relatively small footprint, while containing several different play areas and activities. It has a rope bridge, a sizeable playhouse with shades for sunny days, two swings, a slide, a rope ladder, and a hammock-like contraption that Little Tikes is calling a “nest bed” that makes for a shady and pleasant reading nook. The playhouse is also a great spot for kids to eat meals. It’s essentially a second house for your kids. And because it’s made by Little Tikes, the set is solidly built. (A second Little Tikes swing set is also on sale today and is worth a look.)
Today it’s $400 off, which makes it a solid investment, not just for next year but even for the chilly days left in this one: After all, kids need to play, whatever the weather.
