Just my opinion - Price might seem right but the wooden sets require maintenance. I would suggest a metal/steel set from Lifetime for about the same price. We have had one for about 4 years and it still looks pretty new.

These things are a pain in the ass . I have built many things in my life (garages,sheds, furniture etc) I am in the middle of assembling this as I type. I have a slightly different version but same brand . With the shipment came 4 sets of instructions one labeled "only use this set of instructions " great we will work with this set. Not only are the pictures horrible as the boards need lined up specific ways due the the predrilled holes, sometimes you don't know which way it needs to go until 6 pages later. So this past weekend we hit step 41 of 106 😂😂 it calls for two 1" bolts and two L brackets . Oh wait, our bag of 1" bolts is empty . We put each hardware bag in its own Tupperware container and were sure we didn't mess up. Also, no more L brackets. A quick call to backyard discovery and the lady states oh your step 41 is different from the step 41 from the most current assembly instructions.. ( for real we had 4 versions and there are more ???) so the lady says those are now 1 1/2" bolts and we added L brackets . Needless to say they were very helpful and are sending out more bolts, brackets and updated assembly guide . So all in all myself, my father (who has been in building/construction for 33 years) and my brother (who built his own house) have been assembling this for 3 full days over the past 3 weekends and are only on step 41 of 106. Our wives have been pre picking wood,washers, bolts and screws while we build . If assembly isn't your thing I would strongly suggest buying the assembly through Sams. Even reviews for the unit I purchased had reviews that the assembly crew took full 4 days to assemble. Other reviews stated the assembly crew never showed back up after the first day !!

The wood seems decent and it does look nice . It's nice there are two stain colors .

Final note. If you do buy I would suggest calling backyard discovery as soon as you get your package and confirm you have the latest assembly guide. Once you have the most current go through each step and count all bolts,screws,t nuts, t barrels, lag screws, washers etc .

Also another thing that's screwy is that ours had 4 boxes. You would think they would put the wood needed in the boxes by steps. NOPE!! Step one we needed pieces from all 4 boxes . Seems silly to me but obviously they did this to fit the most wood in each box.

Good luck !!

Man. To each their own but for this price you could buy all the materials and tools to build a basic playset with 3 swings, trapeze bar, and slide. In the end it would likely be sturdier than this monstrosity, you'd have some cool tools, and time to do another project with your new tools. Not for everyone obviously but I bet if you could assemble this yourself then you could build your own.

Exactly this !! We joke (not really a joke) that we could have built a much better play house from scratch in half the time it has taken us to get halfway through this non sense ! It would be much easier to just build as you go ( if you know what you're doing ) than following someone else's shitty directions .. but g'ma bought it for her grand children so we are just doing our part !!

Anither idea to consider - buying used. You can find used high end playsets pretty cheap on Craigslist. If the wood is in good shape and stained, an old set will last long enough for your kids to enjoy.

In our area there's a company that moves playsets for around $500 depending on the size and distance.

My neighbor has a similar set to the one in the op and it took him longer than expected to put together. But the set is nice enough.

My only advice concerning playsets is. Realize how much space a set of this size actually needs and then realize how much rubber mulch (or safety material of your choice) you will need. You'll end up spending more money in rubber mulch then you do on the playset itself in this example! Just a head's up. Smilie

What's the point of this post? If you already have the skills to build this on your own, you probably already have the tools.

Simply buying tools doesn't give you the skills necessary to build this.

So I don't think someone who never built something like this will even know where to start. They will probably waste a lot of wood making wrong cuts and drilling the holes wrong.

Morning, Fishkilla! Point is that given the difficult assembly and cost (slick as it may be) of this set, you might want to consider building something simpler. Sure mistakes would be made, but that's how you learn.

You are right about that, I brought one when ToysRus went out of business...ended up having to buy 500 bucks worth of rubber mulch and underlayment to cover the area. Also buy a thick underlayment and not the cheap stuff at Lowes or HD. The salesman told me that would be fine but now a year later grass is coming through in some areas.
