SWINGS N THINGS CINCINNATI
Swings-n-Things first began as Playsets of Cincinnati in 1993. Playsets of Cincinnati was owner David Powell’s first venture into the children’s entertainment market so at the time we only sold Rainbow Playsets.
About a year later, David decided to expand the business to include trampolines and basketball hoops. A name change was in order. To give credit to the original business, he wanted to keep “swings'' in the name, but emphasize that we didn’t only sell swingsets. “Swings and Things” was considered next, but during the name change meeting people realized that it was actually somewhat difficult to avoid saying “swings n’ things” when you meant swings AND things. So we shortened the conjunction and added hyphens to produce the name “Swings-n-Things” because it felt closer to what a child might say.
Along with the name change came a new location in Sharonville. Throughout Swings-n-Things’ history, it’s been our policy that being able to play on sample models for free helps both children and parents choose the right playset, trampoline, or basketball hoop for their needs. But with a giant indoor playground full of playsets to climb on and trampolines to jump on, David realized that parents or clubs might want to rent out a space for themselves for birthday parties, celebrations, or other events. So our sister company Run Jump-n-Play was born. We expanded Run Jump-n-Play with other features like food, superhero guests, and inflatables and allowed it to thrive with its own marketing apart from Swings-n-Things.
Eventually we decided to move to our current location in Blue Ash, conveniently located off of the I-71 Pfeiffer Exit, right behind the Bob Evans. We also added an outdoor lot near the Tri-County Mall so we could be accessible to more families in the greater Cincinnati metro area, including Northern Kentucky and Dayton. We’re still selling swings and things, and hope to continue serving Cincinnati families by selling high quality outdoor play sets, trampolines, and basketball hoops.
We sell our products at the best possible prices. We work hard to make sure you get the highest level of play value for your money.
