About Us

Rainbow Swing Set Superstore of Illinois

Since 1994, my wife and I have helped thousands of families create lasting memories and countless hours of outdoor entertainment. During that time, we raised three boys and had the awesome pleasure of experiencing what so many of our customers have: watching our children’s faces light up as they climbed into their very own Rainbow. Our boys are older now, but we still have our Rainbow; only now it is used for nieces, nephews, and other little visitors that happen to visit.


Our personal experience and 24 years in the business have affirmed our belief that there is no better play system manufacturer in the world than Rainbow. We can be of great assistance to you in choosing the perfect Rainbow for your own backyard. We know what kids love to do because we see it every day!

Our Vernon Hills, Illinois Store

The first Illinois store opened in Highland Park in 1989, followed by our other stores. In 2000, we moved the Highland Park facility to our own 20,000-square-foot building in Vernon Hills, which also holds our main warehouse. Since our focus is only on swing sets, you can rely on our expert sales staff to help you find the right set for you and your family. We deliver, install, and move sets all year long. Rain or shine, we invite you to see all we have to offer in person. It is the fun place to shop.


Our mission: “To make shopping for the highest-quality swing set a fun, safe, and memorable experience.”


Our Naperville, Illinois Store

We opened our Naperville store in 2001 to accommodate the largest growing communities in Illinois. Whether you have one child or ten, we have the largest selection of swing sets to choose from in the comfort of an indoor showroom. Whether your yard is small or large, flat or sloped, we can build a set to fill your child’s needs and dreams. Come see all we have to offer in person.


Our mission: “Building childhood memories by helping you select from the finest backyard swing sets in the country.”
