Swing-N-Slide Announces New Mascot and Naming Contest

on October 7, 2013



Swing-N-Slide, a PlayCore company, and America’s first do-it-yourself wooden playset manufacturer, promotes safe backyard play.   In order to spread the word about the importance of safety in outdoor play, Swing-N-Slide has introduced a new ambassador.  The new dog mascot will represent the company when informing children about the steps to take for safer play.

To assist in safety education, Swing-N-Slide has created the pet to help parents effectively teach children the rules of backyard play when using a playset.  The naming contest encourages family participation and communication by asking families for name ideas.    As an added incentive, Swing-N-Slide will reward the winning name submission with a free playset accessory.   

Swing-N-Slide’s new pet will promote different safety education programs throughout the year, including the recently launched “Play It Safe” Coloring Book.  The activity book provides coloring sheets while teaching children the steps for safer play.  The book also encourages children to play safer with a Safety Pledge.  The pledge should be signed by children and can be submitted back to Swing-N-Slide.  Submissions will be posted on http://www.swing-n-slide.com. 

The “Name The Dog” contest will be live and taking entries until October 13, 2013.  Swing-N-Slide will announce the winner via Facebook and email on Monday, October 14, 2013.  To enter the contest, visit the Swing-N-Slide home page and click the contest banner or go straight to the Facebook entry page.
