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.

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!

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 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.

I thought this was really heavy duty and everything is but the slide. The slide is now bent from flexing when being used about 2 1/2 feet from end. Slide is not made from very good quality plastic. I would have expected a much heavier plastic than this.

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 swing set is great and especially for the Overstock price. All the materials look very nice and sturdy, like they will last for many, many years. I love that everything is smooth (no splinters like wood sets), no painting or staining every year (like wood sets). I have a six year old and a two year old and they both love it. The slide is fast so I have to hold my two year olds hands when she comes down but she thinks it is fun. There's plenty of room on the deck part for my two kids and myself to sit and draw on the chalk board. I think this swing set was very well thought out and will make any child happy. It took my husband and father in law about 8 hours to put it together.

I wanted to buy a swing my whole family could swing on. Happy with my purchase so far. I'm a large fellow 270 lbs. My granddaughter and I swing together all the time. We purchased an additional swing for the center. Now my wife swings with us! I assembled it by myself but wouldn't recommend it.

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!

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.

My Father and I put this together in one solid day. 9-5. We did start some mild assembly of the first step the night before and organized the parts which likely added an hour or two. Easy to assemble with very good directions. We followed them to a T and it worked out well. I will say that the roof assembly was only for the agile and steady, as you are up in the air and balancing on the rails. A very large ladder may have worked but I just climbed it. Some mild scratches here and there but minimal. I did NOT receive any touch up paint as others have reported. I will try to make a call and get some as I do worry about rust up here in PA. The playset is solid and just made it thru 60 mph wind gusts of Sandy last night and did not budge. Thing was 600+ lbs shipped. I have to really watch (I am his shadow) my 3 year-old as it is too advanced for him but I did not want to buy something smaller and upgrade in a year`or 2. Probably good for 5-10 year kiddos. Lots of fun so far. I can swing without it tied down or anchored and I go about 185 lbs. I climb all over it...but no slide. My son races down that slide like nobody's business though. Can't say I like to trim the grass around it and may be forced to make a "play area" to save my sanity in the spring. We shall see. Very pleased. Hope for no rust...that's my ONLY concern. Plan to get years and years out of it.

This Climbing Dome is exactly as advertised. It took 2 of us to put together in about an hour. Sturdy. I have climbed on it with my 3 1/2 year old daughter and I weigh 112lbs. It's not huge and doesn't take up much space in the yard.

First of all, it just comes in a crate and is dropped off by the street. this thing was 800 lbs so we had to carry it one piece at a time to the backyard. They wouldn't deliver it any further. Then the frame was generally easy to put together. Then came all the play accessories and several bolts were missing so we had to make a few different trips to Home Depot. But once it was all together, it really is a wonderful set and is high quality! Our son absolutely loves it!!!!!! It took two guys 2 full days to put it together (would have been half a day less w/o the hardware issues).

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

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.

We've had this set for a month and it is exactly as promised. Very sturdy. Our kids are on this everyday and when 3 kids are swinging high, the legs don't skip at all. It stays put!! The poles are nothing like the cheap sets you buy at Walmart. They are double the thickness of the smaller swings. You definitely need 2 people to set this up (at least at the final couple of steps) because it is pretty long and is hard to balance.

My daughter is thrilled with this set! As she is going on 10 years old, we wanted a swing set that would accommodate older children and adults, without resorting to commercial playground equipment. This swing has quality, heavy duty components. Attaching the legs to the central support was a bit tricky, but overall we are all very pleased with this set, not to mention the price and quick service we received from Overstock!

After looking around at all the options we decided this was the way to go since we didn't want to spend every year sanding and staining a wood playset. The playset arrived just a few days after ordering which was awesome with Overstock's shipping! It took us a while to get the ground ready for the playset since we wanted it to be level. Assembling the playset took me and my husband a whole Saturday. We followed some other recommendations and got the allen bit for the drill which was a lifesaver. We also took the time and labeled each piece prior to assembly which was also a huge help. The rock wall was the biggest challenge to get on as it didn't want to fit just right. It finally went together and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Our 4 year old daughter LOVES this as do her friends. We added a large border with about 6 inches of kiddie cushion mulch. We hope to get many years out of this playset.

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.
