We bought this product b/c we thought our kids were on the older side of the age range for a swing set and we therefore decided not to buy a swing set. This product is in lieu of other playground equipment. I have 2 girls ages 5 and 7 who love the teeter totter. The older kids in the neighborhood (up to 5th grade) like it better than the zip line across the street b/c when you hit the ground, you can pop up. I do think there needs to be rules b/c it can be dangerous.... 2 hands at all times, no eating while you are on it, and no climbing on it while someone else is using it. Also, my old neighbor had one and took it with her when she moved. Great transitional outdoor toy.

The swingset came in one big long box. It was overwhelmign all the pieces at first but everything in the box was labeled, every piece of wood and little baggy was labeled so it was easy to inventory all the items. But once I organized all the pieces the directions was easy to follow and my father and us put it together in two days. The wood is a nice color and accurately pictured. A couple of pieces of wood had cracks down the middle which worried me about the sturdiness of the wood but then again I'm not a carpenter so not sure if it mattered since they were small. So far it is holding up well and we've been using it for a month now. The bolts that hold the slide down to the wood on the top part sticks out and it snags my daughter's pants every single time and caused holes other than that the slide is super fast and smooth. I had to cover the bolts with duck tape and that helped. My 2 year old and her friends loves it and has been rough on it and it's holding up well. The swing and monkey bars hang low but the swings are adjustable but the monkey bars aren't. I can't raise it any higher because it is hung on a rope and clamp and not chains like the swing. We like the swing set alot and would recommend it. It's definitely worth the money, this swingset is great!

Love it, only bad things is you have to buy your own lumber, but it supplies all the the bolts. Took about 2-3 days to set it up with 2 men. Its been 2 years and now the vinyl top is ripping so it needs some weather protection on it.

Great Playground once set up, but hardware was substandard. Some bolts broke while trying to put together. Instructions could have been clearer. Overall Grand daughter is thrilled with this playground. 2 1/2 years old and can go up the slide without help (previous slide incline was too steep). LOVES the bouncer. She will be able to grow into this and use it for years.

Directions recommend 2 people to put together. We needed a third and sometimes a fourth. Need muscles and patience!! holes don't always want to line up and directions are vague in sections. But my little guy and his cousins love it! so it was worth the effort.

Build in play in one day- well-not with one person maybe 4. But after building for two and 1/2 days the kids got the playground they dreamt of. They love it and it looks beautiful. The boxes are full of additional pieces just in case of damage or repair. We are very happy with it but remember it does take time to set up- so don't tell the children one day!

It will take you some time to put it together. We actually reinforced the back brace with bolts instead of screws, and added 2 more. My son (2 yrs old) was afraid of tubular slides, but for some reason as soon as this one went up, he was flying down within a day. It's not for a novice handyman, so be sure to have help if you're not used to doing work around the house. And you can not beat the price. I found many used ones on Craigslist selling for more than this brand new. Terrific product, couldn't be happier.

Just put together this swingset and for the price, it's unbeatable. Either hire somoene to put it together for you or set aside an entire day to do so. But, once it's assembled it's pretty great! My two year old loves it. It is a little smaller than the playsets you see in schools and on playgrounds. I would say this is a good playset from 2 to 5 or 6 but not up to 10 as stated. Not sure what the wood or stain is. It says "Chinese Cedar' and smells like cedar. My concern with wood from China is that it contains some harmful chemical. It is stained and the stain does leak a little upon assembly but it seems fine for playing on. Will update later when we have had it for 6 months. Cannot beat the price or shipping!

The quality is perfectly fine for a playset of this size and price. I initially found this swingset on another site, not wanting to buy a wooden playscape, and looked up reviews and pricing for several weeks before purchasing. Overstock had the best pricing. The quality is great. The pieces are all durable and in good condition. It did take 4 adults to get this put together over 2 days. Total, it took us all about 7 hours with the addition of power tools. If I were to complain about anything it would be this: The standing ledge near the climbing rope was impossible to put on the playset and still allow it to be put together properly. This might be a manufacturer's defect because I believe it was sized incorrectly for this playset. We removed it, moved bars around, ropes around, etc, and in the end, we chose to not try to make it part of the final product. Which was fine, since our daughter is older, and tall. She won't miss it. Overall, we are pleased. We have not put the misting unit or the shades on the playscape yet because of the cooler temperatures, so I cannot review these portions at this time because we chose to wait.

This is a great outdoor activity for children (psst and adults too). We bought this for our kids last year. It has lasted through an entire summer and winter (snow and freezing rain). It is very durable and fun. There is a safety cord attached so the seat does not hit the ground for younger kids. The line can be removed for older children (and adults). When the line is removed the seats go even higher! It is really a fun activity for kids! I would not use this for children younger than 3. A 3yr old would have to have an adult next to them just in case they were not holding on. The teeter totter goes pretty high.... but there are comfortable and safe handles for each child to grasp. They also stick out far enough for children to double up on each end (2 kids per end). There is also padding on the middle of the handle bars just in case a child bumps their chin. I looked around at teeter totters and I found this model to be more durable than the one that teeters and swings in a circle. The mounting on this one seems very secure and I think it will last a long time. My friend bought this model used and it still looks like new!

More than any other piece of golf equipment, golf clubs affect the size of your golf handicap -- and the size of your wallet -- so you want to make sure you find golf clubs that are right for your golf game. Nowadays, it is difficult to figure out which set of golf clubs is the right set. Golf club shafts used to be made from hickory but are now made from steel or carbon fiber (called graphite). Woods are no longer wood and irons are no longer iron; they're made from modern metals and alloys. This golf clubs buying guide will help you understand the characteristics and varieties of modern golf clubs, which will help you know how to buy golf clubs that best meet your needs.
