This play set was a major purchase for me, but I took a chance and bought it for my grandchildren. I'm so glad I did, it is just an outstanding play set, the quality is definitely like you would see on a public playground, and I can tell that it will last for many, many years. It took three adults two full days to put together, with a little help at one point from a much younger neighbor who was willing to climb up on the climbing wall and screw down the roof panels for us older folks who were hesitant to stand on the top of a ladder to do so. That was the only part of the assembly that gave us pause. The directions were very clear and as long as we took the time to lay out the pieces for each step and go over it carefully before attempting to assemble, we had no issues. The only negative was the delivery, which has nothing to do with the product itself - the delivery company refused to use their forklift and bring the pallet with the playset boxes into our garage from the driveway, instead they opened the package on the truck and handed down individual boxes of parts. We would have preferred to have the pallet brought into the garage (the truck easily backed up into the driveway, it was a matter of 10 feet or so and they had a small forklift, the driver just refused to bring it down and use it). Definitely worth the investment.

The propeller's inner bolt came unwelded immediately. I needed whole new propeller and tube that it attaches too. No response from Overstock or Lifetime company. Wouldn't buy from either again,

Our grandchildren love the teeter-totter. And the twirl-go-round. Thank you for bringing such a great product to line. Many hours are spent on the outdoor play Equipment. Thank you, Dennis & Barbara Central Village,Conn

This is a great outside toy - the ids and their parents love it. It has really held up really well in the elements and all the visiting kids love to play on it too!! Took a couple of men to put it together, but well worth the effort.

Well built, fun for the kids. Side note I've heard the bolt areas rust easily so I took some clear coat rust-proof paint can and gave a quick spray to all the bolting areas just for good measure. Had a bolt strip and a broken plastic end copler, lifetime replaced them quickly with 1 fast call into customer service.

I have looked for a swing for my grandchildren for over a year. Lifetime has a great product and I was sold on it, but not the price... So I waited for Overstock to have a sale and finally got it! It is even more fantastic than I hoped for! This is THE swing to buy...and it will be the ONLY swing you buy, as it's perfect and will last for years and years...even in harsh weather conditions.

WE love the Lifetime Ace Flyer Airplane. My daughter(who is 18) and I tried it out after we put it together! It is very sturdy! My grandkids love it and fight over who gets to "fly it" We did order the multi colored one but received the earth tone plane. I wasn't very happy with that part but over all love the plane/teeter totter. It is time consuming to put it together so plan on some extra 3-4 hours to complete this plane with two people. It wasn't hard. instructions are easy to follow.

I was afraid that this play set wouldn't look as nice as the wooden ones, but I can say it looks a lot better in person, and I don't have to worry about maintenance. The colors are nice, and it looks great in my backyard. It is heavy duty, although not quite park quality, but definitely good enough for home use. This took many hours to assemble, and we had one piece missing, but lifetime shipped it out to us very quickly. We get many compliments on this set. You won't be sorry! I'm not!

Overall, I am happy with this playset and I foresee my kids enjoying it for many years to come. It is good quality and durable. I got the green and tan one, and it blends nicely with the landscaping. The one and only down side of this play structure is the assembly. It took much longer than expected, due to some missing hardware and the fact that they included the wrong cargo net. Lifetime's customer service was excellent, and they replaced the cargo net without issue. My husband assembled it mostly by himself over the course of two Saturdays. In the end, we are happy with the purchase and are pretty sure that it will last until the kids are grown and beyond.

I have purchased and assembled several kids' backyard swing sets over the years, both metal and wooden. I also have had to modify or reinforce all of them in one way or the other to withstand normal play stresses. I was looking for a swing set that was somewhere between the usual backyard set and the public playground set, and one that didn't require being set in concrete or anchored down. The Lifetime unit is by far the heaviest and stoutest that I have ever seen for backyard use. The structural tubing is heavy walled and all of the fasteners are of excellent quality. Everything fit together just as described in the instructions. The only issue, and this is NOT a complaint, is that the unit is heavy enough that I needed help from my son to set it up. My granddaughter and 2 of her friends can play and swing on it at the same time, and it barely moves at all. I can swing on it with her, and it barely moves at all. The Overstock price was very reasonable, and the delivery was very fast. Overall, I am very pleased with the entire transaction.

Had planned to buy a wood structure, but came across this better value. Great price and very little - if any - maintenance involved! All the other reviews indicated the durability and the ease of assembly. It appears very durable. The assembly was very easy - the instructions were very clear/accurate. The rope ladder is definitely as difficult to set in place just as other reviewers have indicated. We were cruising along before and after that part of assembly. It took our neighbor laughing at our different positions attempting to leverage the vertical post into place with the rope ladder for him to bring a cheater bar and his added help to finally get everything in place. We had to request some touch up paint from Lifetime to cover up where we scratched down to the metal. It looks like it may be stainless, so it shouldn't rust. I still give it 5 stars - the rope ladder is a small part of the assembly and once the set is assembled - we'll never need to mess with it again.

This Tetherball System was so easy to put together and we had it up and playing in 15 minutes flat! The ball provided with the system is very sturdy and a pump is included for when you need to fill it up. We've been playing a few weeks now and still no need to re-inflate. Only problem I have with this is the mechanism that connects the ball/rope to the pole. Seems sturdy enough, but after a while (a week?), it tends to wear down and comes loose. The ball goes flying, the mechanism comes apart, and you have to hunt for the pieces in the grass. Wish it fit into the top more securely so we could play.

Got the product in and very impressed with packaging and instructions were fairly clear. Once we completed everything (3 hours later due to us not watching the pictures carefully) we had only 1 issue...we received one bolt that was not threaded small issue that was fixed the next morning at Lowes but still annoying after the time and heat outside. Once up and swinging everything is great a wonderful product that is a larger more durable swing for my daughter who is 8 and my 7 month old to grow into.

Our kids spend hours enjoying this swing. It is sturdy and worth every dollar spent. It takes two men to intall as the parts are heavy. A great product in a great price, thanks Overstock.com

We purchased this playset as a Christmas gift for our 7 and 3 year old boys. They love the set. It took 2 people to assemble and took probably 10 hours total over 2 days. All pieces were included and directions were fine. The set is very sturdy and we enjoy playing with the boys on the set.

This is a fun playset for kids of all ages. It's sturdy and has a good variety of stations to play at. We had trouble getting the rope climbing feature to attach to the platform, as it was too small, no matter how much force we used (this is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5). Ended up rigging up an additional rope and hope that the small one stretches with use to the point that we can hook it in. Our kids love the playset and we anticipate many wonderful years of use!

This is one playset that won't EVER become firewood like many of my friends' playsets, plus, No Splinters! It may seem pricy at first, but I will never have to replace mine. This is way cheaper than having to but 2-3 cheaper ones and I don't have to worry about safety! All 3 of my kids love it and I never worry about their friends come over to play on it! Shipping was much faster than expected, too! This was the best pice for this item. Thank you, Overstock!
