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!
