But as well as delivering these lovely wooden swing frames all over the country for DIYinstallation, we offer a specialist garden swing installation service when you can leave everything to us and have all the enjoyment of the swing frame without the hassle of assembling and installing it.

Fast, safe and convenient installation services from the Active Toy Co

We dig the holes, build the swing frame, supply and mix the concrete, attach the swing seats and replace the turf so you don’t have to. And we have had a very busy summer doing just that.

From Cornwall to Kent and West Sussex to West Yorkshire we have installed our Langley Swing Frames in all kinds of gardens but all to the same high standards that come with all Active Toy Co products and services.

And our customers seem to agree –

Dear Active Toy Co,

I simply love your company. The care and attention to detail shown by all staff is second to none. Your team always ensure I choose the right product. Garden swings, climbing frames and trampolines are a big investment and you want them, not only to last in terms of the British weather, but also in terms of the ongoing enjoyment of your children.  

You always exceed expectations.

Many thanks

Mrs H, Newbury, Berkshire.

It is this attention to detail which makes our Langley Swing Frames stand out from the crowd and why we believe they are the best wooden swing frames on the domestic market today. The swing frames are concreted into the ground which not only provides superb stability and rigidity but also reduces the footprint of the swing frame on the ground meaning they can fit in to smaller gardens without dominating them. The upright legs of the swing frame are 4” thick while the top bars are 5” in diameter and we don’t use any ugly brackets where the uprights meet the top bar. As this is the section of the swing frame that takes the most strain we feel it must not be compromised by a rust-prone metal bracket.

Our upright A frames are scalloped and bolted together to produce a ‘V’ in which the top bar sits and is securely fixed with large coach screws.

Some durable but simple to use swing eye bolts complete the swing frame and make it easy to attach the wide range of swing seats we offer.

Many customers buy a selection of seats and rotate them to keep the children challenged and entertained and obviously as the children grow up they will need different types of seat.

Also, when the children are not using the swing frame, many parents enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine on a Louisiana Rocking Seat!

The result is a very attractive, solid and durable wooden garden swing frame which is suitable for use by both children and adults.

A 10 year guarantee demonstrates our confidence in the quality of the timber used which is FSC registered, responsibly sourced and pressure treated to the core. This means no further treatment is needed over the life of the timber and its colour will weather over time and blend beautifully in to any garden setting.

Ex-demo Swings, Climbing Frames and Trampolines

As one of the few remaining companies offering a genuine ‘try before you buy’ display site for outdoor toys we are proud of the great variety of play equipment we have on display in a garden setting – all available for you to try before you buy!


We believe that, as well as having some of the most competitive prices on the internet, it is important that our customers can see, touch, feel and try a product* before they part with their hard-earned cash to buy it.

Afterall, you can look at hundreds of online photos, videos, diagrams and pages of text about a product but nothing actually beats standing in front of a wooden climbing frame, trampoline or garden swing giving it a good once over to get a real idea of the size, scale, dimensions and quality of it.

On top of this, you can quiz a real human being face to face about the products who will share their knowledge and experience with you to make sure you get the right climbing frame, trampoline or garden swing frame for your situation.

We only sell products which are built to last and we make no bones about it – some of our products are a lot of money. But when you consider the amount of fun, laughter, exercise, entertainment and good old fashioned memories you and your children will get from them for years and years to come, it will seem like a very good purchase indeed. See our testimonials page to see what our customer say about us and our products.

“Just to say thank you for the sturdy Langley double swing we bought from you a couple of years ago – it is doing sterling service – very much enjoyed by young (and old – including this grandmother!). So, well done and I hope you go from strength to strength!”

So, we have a large display and we welcome people to try before they buy and as a consequence we often have ex-demo outdoor toys for sale as we rotate the display products to keep the most up to date products on show looking fresh and new.

We sell off these ex-demo products at various times of year but a ‘pre-season’ sale is a favourite as we clear the decks and install a new selection of swings, climbing frames and trampolines for the coming busy Spring/Summer season.

And now is the time for a ‘Pre-season sale’. Although your thoughts may not be on garden toys while the snow is still falling, it is a chance to pick up some superb bargains ready for the kids to get outside and enjoy when the weather does finally improve (next week I’ve been told!).

Our usual ex-demo discount is 25% off our normal selling price (not the RRP which is a lot higher) and some of the products have even more discount if you’re quick. Most products are not more than 2 seasons old and any outstanding warranties and guarantees are still applicable.

The main stipulations are that the sale is strictly ‘first come first served’ and ‘sold as seen’ – so you must come and look, touch and try the products before buying them. Also, we can then discuss the logistics of moving it from our display to your garden. We try to limit any dis-assembly and subsequent re-assembly and, subject to access at your end , we can move the majority of products part-assembled saving you both time and money.

Here is an example of the savings on offer and more are shown here:

TP Castlewood Tower, Crazy Wavy Slide and Double Swing Arm with two deluxe swing seats

Usually £519.99

Ex-demo price £389.99Saving 25% or £130!

(Plus you won’t have to build it from scratch!)
