  • Good Value - My 3 Kids 10 to 2 Love it
    Verified Purchase

    This was our kids Christmas gift last year to replace an aluminum set from a big box store. Shipping was not the quickest but it was free and it did arrive in time for the holiday. It does take quite a bit to put together. It's a LOT of individual pieces and some pieces are not drilled correctly. FYI the slide is kind of a nightmare... it's one flat sheet of plastic that must be bent into the wavy tracks of the slide. It took my husband and my brother two days to put together. It is a very soft wood, not 100% certain its the Cedar it claims to be, but we treated it with a coat of wood stain twice already. We live in Southern California so it can be cool and very warm and we have automatic sprinklers in our backyard so we want to make sure we can mitigate as much damage as possible so far 6 months in we're pretty pleased. The kids love it... we have 2 girls 9 and 6 and 1 boy 2 and nearly every day they go outside to play on it and will often drape sheets on the bottom to make a fort. It's pretty cute and overall they like it and that's what matters.

  • Disappointed
    Reviewed at http://www.backyarddiscovery.com/

    After 9 months, multiple pieces of the wood is cracked & the finish is gone. It took 2 men @ 12 hrs each to assemble this swing set. The directions were not understandable since it appears it was translated from Chinese to the English language verbatim. This swing set should last 5 years, but it will be gone in another 18 months.

  • Looks good so far
    Reviewed at http://www.backyarddiscovery.com/

    We bought this play structure about six months ago, but only just assembled it due to scheduling demands. It took my husband and a friend (plus one more adult to help/watch the kids) the better part of a day to assemble. The first unit we were shipped was missing the hardware kit, so we had to return it and get a replacement. The second unit was complete and undamaged. The kids were very excited to get to play on it, but kids are excited by cardboard boxes, so hopefully the structure will continue to get use for many years.

  • Summer Time FUN
    Verified Purchase

    My grandsons have used this swingset for 3 seasons. This set has held up well and for the money, it is sturdy and well built. My grandsons are now 4yr old and we also have a new grandson that will be using this swingset this summer, he is 11mo. old. We have not had any problems with the cedar splitting or rotting, nor has there been any problems with the plastic slide, or swings, nor the covering on the fort. We would buy this cedar swingset again.

  • Very difficult to assemble
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased the swing about a month ago and I am still working on it. Nothing is put together you start with a pile of lumber. I t makes me realize that I will never buy anything like this from online again I will purchase local and have them put it together

  • Good for young kids
    Verified Purchase

    It took me about 12 hours to do by myself, kit is well organized and labeled, and goes together rather painlessly. I suggest you organize all the pieces before starting as they come by the hundreds. Once it's assembled it's a good structure and feels solid, I've taken a few go's on the swings without creaking or movement. So far my 3 year old loves it!

  • great swing for the price
    Verified Purchase

    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!

  • Wow! Six Million Pieces But Worth It!
    Verified Purchase

    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!
