Large Slides for Kids

No matter how many new toys and video games we find on store shelves, let’s be honest: good old slides are still the best! A large slide for kids is the perfect gift to help them have fun on their own, with their siblings, or whenever their little friends come round to visit them.

Depending on your budget and available space, there are a few different types of large slides that you can consider: a traditional outdoor slide, an indoor one for their bedroom, one with a swing or other playset elements, a water slide, or an inflatable version with more or fewer features.

Simple backyard slide

A traditional slide is usually the most space-saving and cost-effective option for your backyard, but it surely doesn’t make it any less fun.

From funky colors to creative shapes, you can easily find the right model to entertain your kids.

While a freestanding playground slide is obviously a versatile option, you can also look for sliding boards for sale to attach to your deck roof (that way, you’ll save even more space!).

In for a penny, in for a pound. Since you’re at it, why not get a large outdoor slide that comes with a fun playset, too?

You can find them in lots of different combinations (with swings, ladders, ropes, rock climb walls…), but the most important thing is obviously to keep your kids’ safety in mind by sticking to the right age group for them.

Have you promised your kids that you’ll get them a large slide but are now a bit put off by all those bright colors that will inevitably ruin your perfect decor? It’s ok, we won’t tell them.

Instead, we have a practical solution that won’t take away from the fun: a monochrome slide or swing set in a more neutral or decorative finish.

If you have a fairly large backyard, you can turn that new big slide into an opportunity to create a whole play area for your kids.

As well as a set with a few more games, consider choosing one that includes some seating space. That way, they’ll get to use it independently to spend some more time reading or snacking in the garden, too.

Is your backyard not big enough for a slide? Or perhaps you haven’t got one at all? As long as you can guarantee enough room to prevent your kids from hitting other furniture elements, you can place a large slide in their bedroom instead.

In that case, it might be worth considering simpler models in colors and styles that are more similar to traditional toys rather than one of the classic bright plastic outdoor models.

If you can spare a little more room in their bedroom, then why not look for an indoor slide with other fun features?

A more space-saving and portable solution is an indoor slide that can turn corners of your house into fun playgrounds whenever you want… and be stored away when you need more room.

Whether that’s your sofa, their bed or the bottom of the stairs, a sliding board is ideal for the most adventurous and restless toddlers.

Playtime is fun, but it’s also essential for your kids to develop their motor skills. An indoor playset with ladders, ropes, and hoops as well as a large slide will allow them to do so even when the weather isn’t great outside.

While it’s certainly a cumbersome addition, don’t forget that some models can be folded away whenever they’re not being used. 

Lawn water slides for kids

Who says that slides have to be vertical? (Shut up, gravity!)

A portable alternative that can be brought outside whenever you fancy is a lawn water slide to add a splash of fun to the hottest summer afternoons.

This is certainly one of the most logical options in smaller backyards where a freestanding slide would end up taking up too much space.

A big slide for kids doesn’t necessarily need to be a permanent freestanding structure: how about some inflatable fun?

Our advice Buying Guide

The playground is one of the most essential elements in your home. Whether it’s on the backyard or somewhere in a farm, creating an open space where children can play and have some fun is very important. There are quite a number of fun activities that kids can do outdoors. But if you are really looking to rump up the excitement, getting new kids large slides would probably be the best idea. Slides can work perfectly for kids of all ages. But before you buy, check out the tips below.

How much space is necessary for a large slide?

Kids slides are quite large. They are designed for kids of different ages and as such, before you purchase them you need to be sure you have enough space. Look at the area where the slides will go. Most probably this would be the backyard. How big is it? Will it be enough to hold the slide? As you consider this, there are some safety rules when it comes to spacing that need to be observed. For instance, there should be at least 8 feet of open space around the slide. This leaves enough room for the kids to play and use the equipment safely and effectively.

Are there any minimum age requirements for large slides?

When you’re buying kids large slides, you will also need to consider the ages of the kids who will be using it. For children who are below five years old, plastic-based slides with softer corners are highly recommended. The slide should also not be more than 4 feet tall. Ensure that the slope is also gentle. As for kids between the ages of five and nine, slides ranging from 7 to 9 feet long would be great.

Are large slides safe for kids?

The safety of your slides is also very important. It will determine how effectively the children will enjoy their experience on the slide without any risk of injury. Various slides come with unique safety specifications. They are designed to give your children an exciting and safe experience but even then, it’s your job to make sure that all these safety requirements have been followed. Slides for younger kids will have additional measures to look out for too.

Do large slides require professional installation?

Once the slides are purchased they will need to be installed effectively before they are used. This is probably something you can do on your own but if you don’t have the time or the knowhow, it may be best to have it installed by a professional. Proper installation is crucial in enhancing the safety and the usability of kids large slides. It has to be done very carefully.
