Gorilla Gym Kids Review

Gorilla Gym Kids has a lot of great features that your kids will definitely love. Gorilla swing sets have a variety of equipment included, but this particular package is inclusive of an indoor swing, plastic rings, and a climbing ladder or a rope ladder.

The Gorilla Gym is designed to be attached to door frames like a pull-up bar. It does not need any hammering or drilling so that would be less work and less mess during the installation. The Gorilla Gym also uses patented Visa Grips which adjust to the frames and provides another level of security. It is 38 inches wide, has a height of 16 inches and a depth of 14 inches.

The rope of the swing is adjustable so that your child can comfortably use it no matter how short or tall he is. The maximum length of the swing’s rope is 48 inches while the seat length is 27 x 5.5 inches.

The swing can support a child, or even an adult who weighs 300 pounds so you can be rest assured that your child is in good hands while using the swing.


Also, did you know that you can burn up to 200 calories if you use the swing for an hour? You can add that to your exercise routine, that is if your child even allows you to use it. You can probably use the swing while your child sleeps because the ropes swing without producing any noise. But seriously speaking, swinging is a great way for your kids to have fun while also having an active lifestyle.

For the plastic rings, the maximum length of the rope is 27 inches but it can be adjusted to fit your child’s needs. The actual rings are 8.5 inches wide and 7 inches tall.

On the other hand, the climbing ladder has a maximum length of 68 inches and the space within each step is 10 inches wide and 16 inches tall.


The Gorilla Gym Kids is recommended for kids ages three to ten years old but it can also be used by adults by plugging in the adult attachments which can be bought separately.

Probably the best thing about this swing set is that since it is meant for indoor use, it can be enjoyed anytime, regardless of the weather. You can watch your kids play at a closer proximity compared to when they play outdoors.


  • Kids can stay physically active at all times, in the comforts of their homes.
  • It is very easy to set up since there is no need to hammer or drill anything on the door frame.
  • It is very sturdy and safe even for older toddlers and adults.
  • Both kids and adults can use it, unlike the usual playset which are just meant for smaller kids.


  • It does not fit all door frames, such as those which are too thick.
  • Would have been better if there is also a baby seat swing so it can be used by the little ones.
  • A bit pricey for the simple equipment that come with the package.

Still, although there are some areas that need to be improved, the Gorilla Gym Kids is the perfect choice for those who do not have outside space. Your kids will never have to feel bad that they cannot have their own swing set when you get them this product. They even have an advantage because they can still play when it is raining while the kids with the outdoor playsets have to look for other things to do to keep themselves occupied.

At the end of the day, the characteristics and features of the best swing sets vary and they depend on the needs of the children. For some, an outdoor playset is the best while for some, those meant for indoors are the perfect ones. As long as they serve their purpose of making the kids happy and active while keeping them safe and secured, all playsets can be considered as the best.
