Alternatives to Discontinued Camper and Swing for Two

Step2 toys have a reputation for lasting many years. Since our toys last for so long, many times customers will see toys that their friends, neighbors, and family members own that were available for purchase in the early 2000’s. But, unfortunately, these products that have caught their attention are no longer available for purchase.

Many customers have asked about the Camper Fun Playhouse and Caterpillar Swing for Two. Unfortunately, these two products are among the discontinued. Although these adorable products are no longer available for purchase, we have products that are similar in function and size.

Naturally Playful Welcome Home Playhouse: This giant playhouse is even bigger than the Camper Fun Playhouse, which means more children can play in the playhouse together. In the old camper, children would use pretend play to imagine that they were going on a camping trip. In the Welcome Home Playhouse children can pretend to not only to play house but they can imagine they own a drive thru restaurant and use the windows to take food orders and use one of the other windows to deliver food.

Infant to Toddler Swing and Toddler Swing: The Caterpillar Swing for Two held two children; however, by attaching the Infant to Toddler Swings or Toddler Swings next to each other on a swing set, toddlers will still be able to swing next to one another while being able to enjoy a comfortable swing all to themselves.

Alternatives to Discontinued Step2 Pond

Did you know that Step2 originally started off manufacturing mailboxes and home & garden before branching into children’s toys?. Even to this day, Step2 is known for durable mailboxes and home & garden products. While there are currently a variety of home & garden products available, some of products get discontinued from time to time.

During the spring, we often get questions from customers about where can they find a Step2 pond for their yard. At the end of 2010, we discontinued the Stone Hill™ Tranquility Pond. Although this product has been discontinued, we have other home & garden products that can make your yard look great (we even have garden tools that will help make gardening easier).

Outdoor Storage Bench: This bench with natural colors and textures will look great in any backyard and can also double as a great storage place for gardening tools or children’s toys. Spoiler alert: be on the lookout for more outdoor furniture during the summer of 2013!

Alternatives to Discontinued Bouncers

As of Spring 2010, bouncers were discontinued from Step2. Even though bouncers no longer exist, Step2 does carry a variety of inflatable toys that children will love to interact with for their creative and active play.


These inflatable toys include:

The Adventure Fort: This adorable wooden-looking cabin is perfect for ages 3 and up. It has an opening side wall and large interior space for play. It is easy to inflate for use and deflate to store.
Catch & Play Ball Pit: What could be more fun than an inflatable ball pit? The Catch & Play Ball Pit features a rotating ball deflector, large ball pit area, and sturdy side seats.
Playhouse: It is every little girl’s dream to have her own pretty playhouse. The playhouse has an opening side wall and large interior space for play. It inflates and deflates easily.
Hop & Pop Ball Cannon: Children will enjoy jumping onto the air trigger of the cannon and watching play-balls launch into the air.

In addition, coming soon is the Hop & Pop Whale! Children can jump on the air-powered play-ball launcher and watch play-balls come out of the whale’s blow hole. This toy is perfect if your child loves animals or jumping, either way it is guaranteed to ensure hours of fun!

Thank you for your understanding and consideration of our discontinuation of bouncers. Step2 hopes you enjoy the inflatable toys we have to offer!
