Most jungle gyms are made from metal, PVC, plastic, or other synthetic materials; metal jungle gyms were among the first models to appear in the early 20th century, and children began to learn to stay away from them on hot days. The direct sunlight could make the metal hot to the touch, and hanging on for too long could lead to discomfort or even burns. A wooden will avoid this problem, as the wood will not absorb heat like metal and even plastic. Constructing a wooden jungle gym is also usually very easy and sometimes less expensive.
If you’re thinking about buying a metal jungle gym for your kids, it would be wise to do your due diligence first and find out all you can about the manufacturer and the materials used. The last thing you want is to have your kids hanging off a jungle gym that is not stable, has not been properly welded, or has a cheap paint finish that becomes rusty.

Large, metal, geometric-shaped jungle gyms were once common on playgrounds, but they sometimes led to injuries when children hit their heads on the bars or swung on them improperly, causing bruises, sprains and fractures. Newer jungle gyms are often made of alternative materials, including PVC, other plastics, rope varieties, wood/pipe and other materials. Non-metallic jungle gyms have the advantage of being user-friendly even on a very hot or very cold day, because they do not get too hot or too cold to the touch. Jungle gyms and monkey bars made of PVC and plastic flex when struck, absorbing the impact better than more-rigid metal models. PVC and plastic will not rust.
