The Free Standing Trunk Crawler is a playground tunnel made to look just like a real hollowed out log. It has a highly natural appearance which makes your playground look more like a woodland retreat. The highly durable commercial grade plastic components are molded with realistic wood patterns, and the entrance and exit of the tunnel are made to look like wooden planks. However, this plastic is weather resistant and built to last a long, long time even through constant exposure to weather and other outdoor conditions. Since this is a free standing item, it does not need any additional structures to support it. Each of its corners is fortified by a 3.5-inch diameter steel post, which makes it extremely secure. The tunnel is short enough to allow plenty of light in, meaning it will not be dark enough to frighten children. However it is large enough to give small children a fun obstacle to navigate, or a quiet place to hide away.
