For more than 20 years, the team at Kids Gotta Play has been installing more than 15,000 playsets in and around southeast Michigan. As the sole distributor of Rainbow Play Systems, Kids Gotta Play is the go-to resource for the redwood and western red cedar playsets that have become known for quality, safety and durability. Available in varying sizes and styles from castle to clubhouse, the Rainbox playsets can be customized to accommodate a range of play options including tire swings, climbing walls, cargo chain nets, trapezes and bucket slides.
In addition to playsets, Kids Gotta Play sells Springfree trampolines (yes, spring free) with safety netting, adjustable basketball hoops and athletic floors for tennis and basketball. This kids play headquarters has retail locations in New Hudson and Utica where families can test out potential play equipment before purchasing and talk with owner Dave Byrum or members of his team about a play setup that will work for their budget, their yard and perhaps most importantly – their kids’ interests.
“We’re discriminating about what we sell,” says Byrum. “It must meet our quality and price standards. We’re proud that 85 percent of the Rainbow product line is made in America.”
The industry expertise Byrum and his team have gathered over two decades means families looking for a playset or other play equipment have a reliable resource in Kids Gotta Play. Staff can help families identify an ideal yard location for a playset, point out any limiting factors and customize a setup that will meet the needs of even the smallest children as well as children with special needs.
“We try to educate people about play,” Byrum says. “Each playset offers something different, and it’s our goal to help families find the fit that is best for them.”
