Backyard Discovery is a major player in the playset market. However, these are not our favorite playsets for a couple of reasons. They are a little on the flimsy side in my opinion. They are not as well made as the Gorilla playsets which we recommend over Backyard Discovery.
In addition, they are made in China and are made from one of Chinas largest export woods. The wood is often referred to as Chinese Cedar. While this somewhat pungent wood does have some of the insect and rot resistant characteristics of cedar, it is actually a fast-growing Cypress (Cunninghamia Lanceolata) See CHINESE CEDAR • FAQ
It makes sense that this wood would be a major export from China. It is very fast growing and lightweight. However, it is also a very brittle wood and in my opinion not ideal for playsets due to safety concerns.
