Once you've made it up to the top deck, the swinging rope bridge, rope tunnel, straight bridge overswings, occtagonal deck, climbing tower, slide tower and zipline ride invite kids to run, jump and swing through the trees. For more contemplative moods, a chalkboard and boat-shaped sandbox provide a relaxing sensory experience. Inside you'll find a play kitchen, fold-away table and stools, and a cabinet cleverly concealing a secret escape hatch.

Hand-woven out of 1/4" polyester faux manila rope (guaranteed to stay softer in the elements and last longer than the real thing), this BBAB original is the perfect perch for admiring the treetops and daydreaming, yet also stands up to a lively game of fly in a spider web!

Buckeye Treehouse
