Backyard Fun with Eastern Jungle Gym’s Classic Cedar Bench Swing!


I received the Eastern Jungle Gym Classic Cedar Bench Swing at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

Now that Spring is in full swing and months of warm, beautiful weather are ahead, what is more fun than spending time outdoors with our little ones. My daughter wants to be outside as much as possible and there is nothing she loves to do more than swing! I am beyond thrilled to partner with Eastern Jungle Gym to bring you this exciting review of their amazing Classic Cedar Bench Swing!


Eastern Jungle Gym has been building safe, strong and affordable wooden swing sets for over 23 years! They use high-quality materials and industry-leading, innovative engineering techniques to make sure their products stand the test of time. I love the fact that these swing sets are designed and manufactured by a team of professional, longtime employees in Carmel, New York! Right in our beautiful USA, how awesome is that!

Their Classic Cedar Bench Swing is just phenomenal! Right off the bat, as we opened the boxes, my husband and I knew these were quality materials. Everything was strong, durable and the craftsmanship was on point. This was a swing that was built to last!
All of Eastern Jungle Gyms’ swing sets use 4"x4" and 4"x6" posts and beams with their exclusive thru-bolt system. They bolt two piece timbers together to form the strongest beams in the industry and their posts and beams are also less prone to checking and cracking. Eastern Jungle Gym is the only company that utilizes this flush mounted system. That’s just another reason why I love this company, they care about your safety and the strength and durability of their products!

The set up wasn’t difficult at all, and everything is self-explanatory. Their easy 1-2-3 Bracket System makes building your swing set a hassle-free project. Their brackets are strong, safe and easy to install. All you have to do is slide your lumber into the bracket and screw in the lag bolts, that’s it! With putting everything together and moving it to the right location, it only took about 2 hours. I was expecting this to be at least a half-day project. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised! We made this fun time-lapse video of us putting everything together. It’s an entertaining way to see how easy the whole process is. I hope you enjoy it!



If you'd rather have someone else set up the swing set for you, no worries, Eastern Jungle Gym has you covered! They have factory-trained professional installation teams that are available in most states (service covers 86% of the country). They have assembled thousands of swing sets all over the USA!  Just add an installation service to any new play-set purchase (at a discounted price) and you are good to go. Gotta love it!



Once the swing set was all put together, we wanted to enjoy it right away! My daughter LOVES her swing and once she is in it, it’s pretty much impossible to get her out. She just wants “more swing!” The smile on her face when she is swinging and the giggles I get when I tickle her as she gets close, is just the most heart-warming feeling. It’s wonderful to know that instead of having to drive to a park to use the swings, we can just walk out the door and enjoy this time in our own backyard.

My husband and I love the bench swing! The seat is roomy and could fit three people easily. My daughter loves to walk us over to the swing and sit us down, it's adorable! She enjoys sitting on my lap, or next to us, while we swing. Just the other day my daughter and I spent two hours on the swing, just relaxing and enjoying the nice weather. It was remarkable that this little lady (who doesn’t ever seem to stop moving) settled down on her own and just enjoyed swinging with me. We had a super sweet and lovely time.



Another fantastic feature of this swing set is that while your child is swinging, you can sit on the bench swing and push them at the same time! I love this, it’s ingenious! Time to grab a good book and relax on the swing while your child is seated safely and enjoying themselves. Or, during their infamous nap time, grab your baby monitor, and head outside to enjoy some “me” time.



The versatility of this swing set is fabulous! When your child gets older, you can easily switch out the baby swing for a sling swing or any other model of their choice. Also, if you want, you can take the bench swing off and replace it with two more swings! Eastern Jungle Gym has really thought of everything!



I have so many wonderful scenarios playing in my head of all the fond memories we could make as a family with this swing set. From a romantic summer night snuggle with my hubby to a boisterous, giddy play fest with my daughter, Eastern Jungle Gym is “creating childhood memories” for my daughter and us parents too!
