New Name, Same Great Store!

In the same location on Highway 50 since 1992, Backyard Fun (Formerly Rainbow Play Systems of Sacramento) initially started off as only a Rainbow Play Systems retailer. That’s it that’s all we sold. But now, we have evolved into so much more! We at Backyard Fun are dedicated to provide Northern California & Nevada Families the safest and best quality products to get the kids off the couch and to “Get Out & Play”! So over the last few years, we have been adding high quality products to compliment our lineup to do just that! We are convinced that the products we carry are the finest in the industry. So now, in addition to Rainbow Play Systems, we offer AlleyOop Trampolines, Goalsetter Basketball Systems and seven colors of “Rubber Bark” brand rubber mulch safety surfacing.

To put it simply, we outgrew our name, and here we are with the launch of our new name Backyard Fun. Because Backyard Fun is what we provide!

Sincerely,
Scott & Jeanine Schulz

Why “Get Out and Play”?

We hear it on the news, read it in the papers and sadly, see it in our everyday lives. Childhood obesity is growing in epidemic proportions in the United States. “One out of every three children in America is overweight or obese. 40% of the obese children and 70% of the obese adolescents will become obese adults – a condition that increases chances of developing diabetes, cancer & heart disease.” (Time Magazine July 5, 2010) Of the four key elements to help combat this problem, one of the elements is to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. This is where our team at Backyard Fun can help! Whether it’s imaginative play inside one of our forts, developing social skills while playing with the neighborhood kids, fine tuning their motor skills climbing our rock walls or just having a blast spiraling down one of our tube slides, the kids are getting much needed exercise while having fun! Did you know that 10 minutes of bouncing on a trampoline is equivalent to a 30 minute jog? How often does that quick game of “HORSE” on the basketball court quickly turn into two, three or four games! Providing your children with high quality and long lasting playground equipment while in the safety of your home is our goal at Backyard Fun.

Some Tips before you visit our store:

  • Bring the dimensions of the area(s) that you are looking to place the system.
  • Discuss with the family where a swing set or trampoline would best fit.
  • Consider an area that can easily be seen from the kitchen or family room.
  • Digital pictures of the area sometimes help us understand what we are dealing with, especially if it’s a small or oddly shaped area.
  • Try to avoid areas that are close to hard surfaces (concrete or asphalt), fences, trees, large windows, etc.
  • Is the area sloped? Let us know, we have options for that too!
  • Make sure you account for some “run around room” surrounding the play area,
