Plum Gibbon Swing Set
This combination of swing attachments is one of our strongest selling swing frames. The Plum Gibbon Swing Set offers a climbing rope and rope ladder challenge at either end of the frame- each of which uses the unique soft feel rope.
The round pole premium FSC® certified timber is pressure treated for extra strength. The swingset top bar is 100mm in diameter and the legs are 80mm in diameter making the frame highly robust. Metal swing attachments encircle the pole so no drilling is required through the top beam, maintaining the strength and integrity of the timber. The sturdy frame also has wooden cross braces giving the garden swing set extra stability. Parents can therefore have peace of mind their children are riding a high quality swing set, with safety standards at the centre of its design.
Wood is a natural material; climatic changes contribute to cracks inside the wood. In hot, sunny weather the timber will shrink. Conversely in wet weather the wood will expand. Cracks in the wood, dependent on these weather conditions, are common, and do not affect the structural integrity of the wood. For more information, please read Plum's wooden product guide.

Plum Gibbon Wooden Swing Set Reviews
Sam Duke, 30 May 2017
Simple to erect but too much lateral movement in the frame mainly due to excessive clearance between metal trunnions and woodwork. I suggest a clamp system not the coach bolt arrangement.

Absolutely fantastic I am delighted. Strong, well made, very safe and my young grandchildren love it. Thank you.

After a lot of research this swing set stood out for being robust, very well made and it would give me the opportunity to buy extra play equipment to add to it at a later date as the Grandchildren grew. I also purchased the red baby swing. The building instructions were easy to follow.

I ordered this because it had both elements of climbing and swinging. The accessories are easily interchangeable especially with growing children. Enough room for all their friends to play aswell. Seem good quality and very sturdy. delivery was great and have had superb and swift responses to any queries I made to activity toys direct. Would definitely recommend.

When it arrived it had several deep splits in it, took photos and emailed customer service and they emailed back very quickly the splits were fine. Hubby put it together in about 2 hours and grandkids couldnt wait to get on it. Even when it rains they want to play on it. Great fun.

Excellent quality for the price. It’s given my daughter hours of pleasure. Excellent quality fixtures and easy to assemble. Must be concreted in to prevent movement at the joints. A good buy. Thanks

Very happy with the swing set, but not happy with the delivery service and having to wait in for another day for just 1 pole as it had been sent to a different warehouse.

Unbelievable value for a good quality swing set - very happy with it. Setup took about an hour. Once in place, I fully expect it to last for many years.

Superb bit of kit

Great quality swing, really pleased with it, easy to assemble with nice clear instructions. Another fantastic service from Activity Toys, we had a small crossbeam missing when delivered and could see where it had been attached to the packaging, so obvious it had been lost in transit. Activity Toys sent the missing part by courier the next day and were really helpful and apologetic. Have used Activity Toys a few times now and highly recommend them and the swing set.

Just Great. Grandsons were on it before it was concreted in, but they are only young, a swing is just not for SUMMER!!

Have not erected the swings yet because it is a Christmas present, but it looks solid

Lovely strong, well made piece of equipment. It’s easy to put together and looks great. Unfortunately due to the current situation my lovely GrandChildren cant use due to being isolated. However hopefully they will get lots of pleasure from it. Great set and very good service, thank you

Great value swing set - and delivered just in time before the lockdown - which the kids love. Certainly saving me a lot of headaches with the schools closed! As others have said. The fit between poles and brackets is a little loose, so I added a couple of bits of timber as corner brackets between legs and crossmember, which seems to have made the whole structure much stiffer.

Lovely sturdy swing set with two swings and climbing ladder. Very pleased with this set for our grandchildren.

Nice quality, looks good, works well and was easy to put together.... As an example of it's strength I've hung a 70-KG punchbag on one of the overhangs and it's fine (shhhh, don't tell the retailers)

Beverley H, 01 Jun 2020
Absolutely perfect. my grandchildren (8 in total) love it, plenty of activity and stability, once cemented into the ground. Well worth the money!
leslie n, 31 Jul 2020
I bought the plum product which was £50 more than the rebo one thinking it would be stronger. The set flexes from side to side as the wood is loose in the 3 way brackets. The co say this is normal as the wood swells. Well its not good enough, it could be designed to not do this,I have put wedges into stop it. Wish I bought the rebo and saved £50

Really lovely swing which doesnt take up too much room. Easy to install and daughter loves it!

Very sturdy once put together correctly - we initially couldn't understand why it was so wobbly, but it turns out the green brackets are slightly slanted outwards and you need to have them both pointing outwards so that it is sturdy. There is no mention of this in the instructions and the slant is very subtle so it was tricky to see. We realised that there were logo plates attached to the brackets. You have to have one logo facing forwards and one facing backwards. Once we had amended this it was much sturdier. There is only slight movement now when my 10 year old is on it - but having read the description, I realise she is at the top age limit. My 7 year old swings happily and there is no movement. Overall, a great buy, they absolutely love it and I just wish we had bought it earlier.
