I’ve always appreciated dome climbers for children in parks and theme parks. They are awesome, because children have fun climbing up there, aiming to conquer the peak. What they don’t realize is that while they try to climb up there, they are using every muscle to climb – so they are basically sport active, and that is important for our little ones.
The bad part with climbers, at least in my days when I was young, is that they are only in parks, so you have to go there, and a lot of children are climbing on it so they are at most times highly occupied. And there is one flaw I think I need to point out -some of climbers are too high or maybe too dangerous, and we really want to prevent any potential danger from our children.
Here comes the great part: everybody who has a nice backyard, and is thinking about buying a climber, I have the best answer for you – go for it! I mean they don’t cost that much, depends on what dome climber you want, but you can get pretty decent one for just 150$, now how cool is that?
So in this article I will present you my top 5 best outdoor dome climbers for kids of all ages, and I will start with cheaper dome climbers and end with expensive one. . Just keep reading further.
Like I promised, I started with the low price dome climber. This red and yellow dome is perfect for the younger ones. It is not that big,82 ” x 80″ x 41″, so as you can see it could be an indoor dome climber as well. The structure is made from 25 galvanized pipes, so it should last for a long time.
I would definitely recommend it for children that doesn’z have climbing experiences, so to start with climbing, start with JAXPETY dome climber.
Lil’ Monkey dome climber is made of quality polypropylene and it is UV resistant, so there shouldn’t be any concerns’ whether this dome climber is durable or not.
It is as well-made for children, 3 to 6, to start climbing up the dome is just perfect, and very safety because it is not to small (
66.9 x 66.9 x 46.5 inches ) or too big, and could easy fit indoor as well.
If your toddler is a little monkey, climbing up everything he/she can ( my younger son started to climb on everything before he could even walk ), get him/her a Lil’ Monkey dome climber and take advantage of your child’s eager to climb and transform it to useful sport.
Now we have come to this part when our children mean business. This dome climber has 10 feet diameter and 5 feet height, so I would definitely recommend it to children that already know how to operate and climb on climbers.
it is made of quality rust-resistant powder-coated steel with high-density polyethylene climbing grips. Supposedly age recommendation is 3 and more, but please, if your child can not climb very good yet ( my son at three could climb better then my 5 yo daughter) don’t start with this climber, except if you have a lot of time and watch out for your kids.
But if your kid is very good at climbing, I think and believe that this dome climber is probably the best dome climber for its price.
Price: 220 $
Althoguh this dome climber is quite expensive and smaller then dome climber mentioned before this one, I must tell you that is made of quality plastic, UV resistant and has great feature of assembling it – it has interlocking plastic tubes and connectors with double self-locking springs and its material makes this dome climber really lightweight and it is easy to move it around and because it is not that big ( 70.07 x 65.53 x 46.65 inches ) it could be an indoor dome climber as well.
It is of course made for toddlers to learn how to climb. So if you are more into safe plastic and light dome climber, then I recommend Eezy peezy monkey bars climbing tower.
Skwalker’s dome climber is huge ( 252.3 x 144 x 106.7 inches ) and you really need a big backyard to fit this product into. But if you have a lot of space, then this dome climber is excellent for you. It is made of quality UV resistant, weather and rust resistant powder-coated steel frame. Imagine how proud will your child be when he would conquer the peek – how proud can a parent be?
Remember when I mentioned a big backyard is a must? Do you know why? because a swing is included as well ( Now the price is justified). It is swing set with traditional belt swing and trapeze bar with rings. So when your child gets bored climbing or is exhausted from climbing, then can go swinging on a swing and relax his muscles and still enjoys it.
I would recommend it for children that have experiences with climbing, and for all of you that have big enough backyard to fit this monster in.
If you ask me, what kind of dome climber would I point out, like best of them best, I would go for number 3, lifetime geometric dome climber and lil’ monkey dome climber.
lifetime geometric dome climber is my number 1. Because it is not that expensive ( $190), and it is quite big ( 10 feet diameter and 5 feet tall ) and it offers the same fun as any other more expensive dome climber,
Lil’monkey dome climber is my number 2. Recommendation overall and number 1. Recommendation for toddlers – it is safe to climb on it because it is not that big and not to small, it looks great and it very attractive to children, and price is just right – $130. What more can I say than “awesome”.
