Need a Swing for Your Swing Set? | gobaplay Swings Review

04 Apr 2024

Are you looking for a swing for your swing set but don't know which one to buy?

Buying the right swing can turn your swing set into a hub of joy and relaxation. But buying the wrong one could result in frustration and wasted money.

That is why we at gobaplay will provide an honest, unbiased review of our two swings, the gobaplay Round Platform Tree Swing and the gobaplay Boat Tree Swing, to see if one (or both!) might be a fit for you.

We will cover the swings' basic features, safety, durability and installation, so you can make an educated decision about whether a gobaplay swing is right for you!

2 gobaplay Swings for Swing Sets

Before getting into the gobaplay Swings, note that these Swings can be purchased individually if you already have a swing set or as a part of your gobaplay Single Swing Set purchase.

A positive about the gobaplay Swings is they are compatible with most outdoor swing sets , so even if you have an existing swing set, you can add one of these swings to your arsenal without purchasing a frame. You can also hang the swing from a tree with sturdy branches!

You just need to make sure there are either one or two hooks on your swing set if choosing to attach the swing to a swing set. Each gobaplay Swing comes with 2 carabiner clips which helps with switching accessories on a swing set.

1. gobaplay Round Platform Tree Swing

Let's begin with some basic features of our first gobaplay Swing, the Round Platform Tree Swing:

Swing Features

  • 39 in. (99cm) diameter
  • Strong UV-treated 600D woven polyester base.
  • Powder-coated steel frame with padding.
  • Heavy-duty polypropylene mesh.
  • Adjustable high-performance polyethylene rope.
  • Weatherproof and waterproof.
  • Great for trees with sturdy branches or compatible swing sets.
  • Color: Dark Green.
  • One-year warranty.
  • Weight capacity of up to 113 kg.
  • $119

Swing Quality

The Round Platform Tree Swing is built with high-quality materials, including, a UV-treated polyester base, a powder-coated steel frame and a high-performance polyethylene rope, among others.

The Swing's ability to hold up to 113 kg and sustain through inclement weather conditions is a big plus for the Swing.

Swing Safety

The premium quality of the Swing also ties into its safety -- it's built with strong materials, ensuring that it won't break down under consistent use.

The outdoor Swing can also safely go from tree swing to swing set swing and its adjustable rope will allow you to modify the swing's height to a comfortable level.

Swing Durability

The Swing's quality features help it last longer than other similarly priced swings: Under reasonable use, the Round Platform Tree Swing should last at least a year but can last for many years if it is used/maintained properly (You will receive maintenance tips in the product manual upon purchase).

Swing Installation

Assembly is required for the Round Platform Swing. Download our gobaplay Round Platform Swing Installation Manual to see more information about how to install the Swing.

Swing Cons

For $119, the Round Platform Swing is about as good as it gets. However, safely installing the Swing could take some time to complete and the warranty does not cover general wear and tear.

2. gobaplay Boat Tree Swing

The next swing we will review, the gobaplay Boat Tree Swing, is a good option to safely hold multiple users at the same time.

Just like the Round Platform Swing, the Boat Tree Swing can attach to an existing swing set or to a tree with sturdy branches.

  • Powder-coated steel frame with padding.
  • Heavy-duty polypropylene mesh.

  • Offers flexibility to hang from a single or double point.
  • Color: Blue.

Swing Quality

The gobaplay Boat Tree Swing high-quality swing that includes adequate UV treatment to the base-which is made from heavy-duty polypropylene mesh, and a steel frame that is powder-coated and padded.

Swing Safety

If you are within the 114 kg weight limit, the Boat Tree Swing will safely hold two users, which is great for young siblings!

The Swing's quality features will help it hold up under inclement weather/direct sunlight.

Tip: Protective surfacing is always recommended to avoid the brunt of the ground if a falling injury occurs. Mulch, wood chips or a shock-absorbent mat would be ideal.

Swing Durability

Because it's constructed using solid materials, the Boat Tree Swing will last at least a year and could last many more assuming it is reasonably used and maintained.

Swing Installation

You will need to install the outdoor Swing to a swing set or a tree. Read through our gobaplay Boat Tree Swing Installation Manual for the exact steps to follow - make sure to pick a safe spot to assemble the swing!

Swing Cons

Similar to the gobaplay Round Platform Tree Swing, the Boat Tree Swing requires time to assemble (although it shouldn't take long) and its warranty does not cover general wear and tear.

Is a gobaplay Swing Right for You?

Both gobaplay Swings - the Round Platform and Boat - are quality Swings that can safely amplify an outdoor swinging experience for kids and adults. They work equally great as a tree swing or as a swing for a swing set.

For their respective price ranges, they are as quality of a Swing as you will find on the market. Whether you're looking for a swing to attach to a tree in your yard or are needing a swing for a swing set, the gobaplay Swings serve as two affordable, solid options.

You can also purchase both of them, so you have different swings for your swing set!

You can purchase the gobaplay Round Platform Tree Swing and/or the gobaplay Boat Swing directly from our website!
