Kids’ Zipline delivers some outdoor fun

kids-ziplineKids these days tend to spend a whole lot of time in the virtual world, instead of exploring the real world outdoors. Take away smartphones and tablets from a summer camp, and chances are you will see more restless kids than usual who have not gotten used to solitude and quietness in the middle of the woods. Well, how about getting them reacquainted with the real world with the $199.99 Kids’ Zipline? It allows you to place a zipline in your backyard, a campground, a park, or wherever decent enough for it, and is capable of supporting a kid of up to 250 lbs. I guess adults, too, are able to give it a go.

The Kids’ Zipline would feature an easily removable seat to boot, and it targets those who are aged 7 and above. It also boasts of a specially designed hardware bracket that enables both rope and seat length to change in order to make an adjustment for different riders’ height. It is nice to know that it arrives fully assembled, although it will require more than a single person to set it up. Just make sure that it is anchored to a healthy tree that measures at least 12” in diameter. Geronimo!
