It probably won't chip if you use a primer made for plastic. Ask someone at Home Depot or Lowe's. Also, see if they make a child-safe paint (???)

They do make a baby safe paint, but I don't know if it would bond properly to PVC pipes or not. I wouldn't even try it. Why risk it when there's no real need for paint? You don't like the plain old white PVC? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />White goes with everything. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I think they make gray PVC as well, if that's more appealing to you.

PVC does come in white & grey. You can use a plastic primer, but it doesn't always want to adhere to PVC & if your gliders are any sort of chewers, I'd stick to plain PVC. Just my 2 cents of course.

There is paint made to adhere to plastic. It is baby safe and I have used it on the grandkid's outside toys. It has weathered well and I haven't seen any chipping at all. However, my grandkids don't chew on it either.
