Little Tikes infant and toddler play equipment is durable and easy to clean. Even when left outside in the summer sun, it doesn’t fade or become brittle. This set is recommended for age 1 to 3, although realistically, your toddler will probably outgrow the swing by the time he is 2, if not younger. But the swing addition can be removed when your child outgrows it, leaving the slide to climb and play on.

The full length is 53.5 inches and 52 inches wide. The slide extends out 28.25 inches, so do count that in your measurements for your yard.

This is small enough that many families bring it indoors during the winter so you can use it year round and give the kids a better place to climb than your couch during cold rainy or snowy days.
