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 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.

Love this product , better then expected, strong and looks like it will be a favorite for a long time to come. The only negative is that it takes a long time to put together and you really have to know how to put things together to do it. Other then that you will love it .

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,

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.

Fairly easy to put together. Very colorful. Kids love it.

Four thumbs up! My two grandkids love it. It's just the right size for a 5 & 7 yr old with lots of room to grow. The sturdy rock climbing grips gave our youngest the courage to make it to the top. With the addition of a few sheets and clothes pins it can also become a cave, jail, house, igloo and spaceship. I'm 5 ft tall and was able to assemble the climber in 3 hrs by myself. However, I would recommend following the instructions and getting an extra set of adult hands to make the job easier.

We searched many sites and looked at different types of outdoor play equiptment that would satisfy ages 3 - 15.Christmas morning all of the kids ran outside to it and immediately started climbing. The 3yr old had some difficulty, but by the next morning was climbing and swinging down on his own. The climbing handles make it easy and safe and the height is just right for all ages. Assembly took about two hours with two adults and the directions were easy to follow. The only concern was with the shipping. The box came shredded, but only a couple of the climbing handles were missing. I called the companies customer service, they were very polite and shipped the handles out immediately. We received the handles 3 days later. This was a great shopping experience and a great gift.

The swingset is very good quality and I would recommend this product to my friends provided that their husband is a handy man and could fix the manufacturer defects. All the legs and the top bar had to be fitted together. They wouldn't fit together because of the way they had been welded together. My husband had to do some major sanding on the inside of the tubes to smooth the bump that wasn't allowing the tubes to slide together. After he fixed that, we were able to connect the legs and the top bar together. BUT, if you don't have the tools to fix that problem, I wouldn't recommend the product. There was no was we could connect it together without working on it. But my grandchildren love the swing set.

We did lots of research before choosing this swing set. We are very happy with the quality of this set. It is very sturdy. Both my husband & I can swing on it and it remains stable. It does not require any cementing for anchoring. We added a toddler bucket swing in the middle and all three of our girls just love it. Our 7 year old enjoys the trapezee swing, our 5 year old loves the regular swing and our 1 year old just giggles with delight in her swing!

This is an AWESOME swing set. After researching swing sets for sometime we decided on this one and are so glad we did. It is very well made. It weighs over 700 lbs so does not need to be anchored. It is made of metal and strong plastic that will not rot, rust, or fade; something that was important to us since we live in Colorado. Our high winds do not affect it. It is very sturdy and was easy to assemble. Our 2 year old absolutely loves it! It is like having a park in your back yard! Not to mention Overstocks price was half of what you could buy it for other places and shipping was free!

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!

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.

The Teeter-totter airplane was exactly what I expected. The assembly was easy, but time consuming. I put it together by myself. The instructions couldn't have been better. Very easy and specific. The kids were sooo excited, and cannot wait to play on it again. It was the highlight of Mothers Day.

This is a great backyard addition for our kids. Every other website was out of stock, finally found it here. It came in a couple of days. Very happy with the whole process.

Arrived quiclly & without any problems. A bit of a problem setting up but we managed. You begin to look like a monkey after a while holding parts together but we laughed. Kids could hardly wait for it to get up. Have had a blast on the thing ever since, very sturdy and looks like years of fun. Not sure about hand holds. Hope being plastic they can hold up but so far so good.

I was very impressed with the quality of this playset. It is very heavy duty and well made. Lots of play features that will appeal to children of different ages. It is as good as a comercial playground set in my opinion. I had heard many horror storys about putting together the wooden sets and so I chose this one. Very glad I did. All the componets are well marked and make putting it together easy. It has a lot of add-ons, so it takes time, and a heavy duty drill is a must, but well worth the effort. Make sure you have enough room for it as it is very large. Another thing I love about it is that it does not have to be cemented into the ground, and so can be moved if necessary.

I bought this set about a year ago and have wanted to review it every since. First off, it is great and people ask about it all the time, so get used to answering questions if it is in a spot that people can see it. So far no maintenance has been needed. I will caution that while you do not need a perfectly level spot, it does need to be pretty good. Also, I put this together by myself in about 10 hours, two days of 5 til 10. I used a cordless drill a lot with the proper bits instead of the tool provided. So, it is possible to put it together by yourself, but some help would have been nice.

Excellent set, better than expected. Should last a lifetime and then some.
