I am very happy with this play set. Assembly definitely was a pain, despite starting out by organizing all of the pieces and hardware before starting. It took about 10-12 hours in total, and it was helpful to have two people working on it, with one to decipher the instructions. We followed the instructions meticulously (or so we thought), but still had to take things apart and re-do them (swapping boards, flipping them, or turning upside down, etc), because pilot holes that weren’t shown on one page were shown on another, or weren’t visible due to the shading on the diagram. It was more of a minor annoyance than anything and was mostly taken care of by stopping and looking ahead pretty closely. Regardless, I would recommend taking the extra time to get all of the parts and pieces organized as they come in separate boxes and in no particular order. The organization made it very easy to make it through construction fairly easy. The hardware does come with several drill bits that match up with the specialized hardware, as well as Hand wrenches with the same heads. Use the bits in an actual drill; it will make your life so much easier. Now that it’s assembled, both of my kids (4 & 2), absolutely love it. The ladder is easy enough for my 2 year old to climb without issue, and the whole thing is large enough for my tall 4 year old to still have fun with. We have not staked it to the ground yet, but that will be the next step. It does sway slightly if they’re both on the swings at the same time, but I’m attributing that to the ground not being quite level, as the structure is very sturdy. During construction, my husband (230lbs) sat up in the main area of the playhouse without any issue other than a couple of creaks here and there. We do plan to put a couple of coats of a sealer on the wood since we live in an area with a lot of rain and snow. I’m very pleased overall and I am excited to see how it holds up. Also, we did purchase the safety swing separately from the swing set itself and replaced the trapeze bar that comes with the set, which was very easy to sub out (see picture for safety swing).
My kids love this swing set! They especially love the kitchen and picnic table. The two tone colored wood looks great. The set instead is very sturdy. The directions for assembly are pretty thorough. The slide is a little flimsier than I’d like. Overall we are very happy with it.
What can I say? Awesome backyard adventure set. My kids are in love with it. Very sturdy and easy to put together. I wish when I was a kid I had a play set like this.
Directions were easg to follow. Took a few days to assemble. We sealed prior to setting up and added some solar power lights so kids could play in the evenings. Happy with purchase and that we picked this one with first floor up to 5 foot height to give kids more years of use.
Absolutely unsatisfied with this product. DO NOT BUY THIS!!! This thing comes with over 60 pages of instructions. They also are not easy to understand. I have been a union carpenter for over 20 years and had a hard time putting this together. #1 The directions are very unclear. If you do not pay attention to every detail on every page you will mess this installation up. #2 all the parts that have the darker stain do not have piece numbers because they stained over them. So good luck guessing which parts are which. #3 I had several missing parts. Wood pieces, screws, washers, etc. Figured if I paid over *** I would at least get all the pieces, but no. #4 Some of the holes were not pre drilled with the proper size but, so fortunately I had tools to fix the situation. I am going to try to get the missing parts by writing an email, but I really don't think it's going to go anywhere. Thankfully I feel I can go to *** and find the missing hardware I need to finish this thing off. I really am not one to criticize products, but this thing is ridiculous. If you do end up buying this POS hopefully you can afford to pay someone to put it together. Then they can figure out what to do with all the missing pieces. Sorry for the bad review, but I'm definitely unsatisfied!
This customer was entered into a sweepstakes after submitting their honest review.
So glad we made this purchase. Directions were easy to follow. There are a lot of parts and it takes a lot of time to construct but I did 95% myself (woman with little- no construction experience). Customer service was great to replace a broken piece. Would recommend
Very well made and smells like amazing cedar. Me and my husband and father in law had it up in 3 days. Its def a job to do. So dont do it if your not ready for the long haul. I think overall we had fun and got some nice 🌞 while building. Kids love it and everyone keeps complaining how nice it is. My next swing set will come from here also. There was one broken board when we did out count. It was very small and not very hard to fix. Overall amazing !!!!!
We paid almost *** for this swing set and I am overall very disappointed. The wood it is made out of is awful. It looks and feels like it’s gonna brake at any moment. Also the swing set in general is very small. My 2 year old will grow out of it rather quickly. You would think for this amount of money, you’d be getting something good. Unfortunately every where we look most swing sets aren’t made very well unless you want to pay over 5 grand.
EDIT TO ADD- Overstock finally reached out with the best possible customer service to reach a resolution of this return. While I still think the quality of the item is one star. Overstock really went above expectation after a long delay to provide appropriate customer service. Wouldn’t buy or reccomend this swingset again but overstock has definitely redeemed themselves as a great company. If I could rate this zero stars I would. Missing parts and broken wood. They will replace these parts in 11-14 days which will make the kids super happy to look at a half assembled swingset that they can’t use. The wood is also super cheap and not the thickness I would trust for my children to climb on. Don’t waste your money. If you do happen to purchase and realize it is a POS good luck returning it. Overstock.com will give you the run around for weeks about how they have “forwarded to their oversize department” for return. For the amount of money spent good customer service would go a long way. I will not be purchasing anything in this brand or from the overstock company again. Lesson learned.
We bought this for our grandson couldn’t be happier! Delivery was on point. Easy instructions, easy assembly. 2 yr old loves it! Quality is great.
This swingset is VERY nice - durable, nice looking, and fun for the children. I would suggest getting it, however, be prepared to get help putting it together. It is not easy - lots of pieces, bolts, nuts, screws - it will take a lot of time to do it and requires more than one or two knowledgeable people. The kids love this set! It is used a lot!
Overall the kids enjoy it - however, the entire set moves a lot when swinging. Not sure if others have this issue? Plastic slide seems flimsy. Some of the screws that were given are not long enough so a few pieces of wood pop up. How do we get the long screws? Are they specific to this swing set or can we get them at *** Thx
This playset is pretty awesome, but be warned, the construction itself took multiple sessions over the course of a week, ranging from 2 to 6 hours at a time. It’s extensive. Additionally, the last few pages of the instructions leave out hardware and steps that are essential to attaching the swing set to the rest of the structure. You need extra parts that they don’t mention at all. We were able to make it work with some extra hardware, but it’s like the instruction-writing guy just gave up at the end. Overall, my 2 year old absolutely loves this thing. It’s definitely not intended for adults to climb around on it (according to the violent creaking sounds anytime my husband sits on the swings with my daughter), but she’s already spent enough time on it in one month to make the purchase worth it.
We absolutely love this playset!! It's got so many great features and still fits in our small backyard! The slide is so fast and my 3 year old LOVES the attached picnic table and kitchen area! Definitely lay out all materials and label everything before starting. It was a life saver! Would definitely recommend this!!
It took awhile to assemble, but it is a great swingset. We resealed it before assembling it, but all of the pieces were there. It is a little lightweight but the swings, but we anchored it, and it seems to be holding well when wmny 4 and 6yr olds swing.
Well made set with very good instructions. Well thought out play areas. I love it and so do the kids.
My kids love the play kitchen that is below the clubhouse. The swings was easy to assemble and fits nicely in a long but narrow yard.
Takes about 2 full days to build with the help of another person. Can be overwhelming at first, but if you keep everything organized you should be fine. Fairly easy as long as you follow instructions. Daughter loves the picnic table and kitchen! Love that it comes with food and kitchen essentials. She should be able to enjoy this for the next 10-15 years.
Love this swing set!! I got it doe my granddaughter for her birthday. It’s perfect.
Very disappointed in the price for this product. It was missing hardware. Some of the wood was cracked. The wood is very thin and doesn't feel very sturdy. Directions for the most part were easy to follow but some of the wood was not stamped so we had to guess on some. Parts of the directions are incorrect in building. It wants you to use the wrong hardware to attach parts of the swing and playhouse. The way the directions want you to build makes it extremely hard to get it all leveled up so all the wood fits together properly. Overall the 2 year old is happy but I am disappointed in the price for what I received.
