Rated 5 out of 5Â by HomeDepotMom GREAT Swingset!
Shipping was FAST! Ordered on Thursday online and trucking co. called Friday to schedule delivery for Monday. 4 boxes, easily handled with 2 people.
Everything included, no missing parts. All parts are packed in the 4 boxes in random order. We sorted and confirmed all parts first. No splitting wood, quality accessories. Installation took a day and a half with my husband and father in law. That time also included getting the ground level first, and we spent about 2 hours sorting everything by "phase" first to make it easier. Instructions are broken down in phases. 43 phases total. Some are fairly short, maybe 2 or 3 pieces to put together. Highly recommend this swingset. Very sturdy and good quality. Plenty of room for lots of fun.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Mysseryn Not Impressed with overall quality
Let me start off by saying my 3 year old son absolutely loves this playset... mommy & daddy are not the biggest of fans. The hardware is low quality, missing, broken and turned colors after only a couple of days outside. The wood is a lot softer than anticipated requiring my husband to add multiple reinforcements. Lastly, the directions were not written very well. There were a handful of times that we found ourselves disassembling steps because it was determined in a later step that a board was positioned incorrectly. Very frustrating overall!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bbgto great set for the money
I will start off by saying that the set is comprised of 4 boxes packed in completely random order and the wood is relatively soft. Other than that all of the pieces are clearly marked and pre-drilled. I sorted the pieces by part number, but didn't sort by step. You need to pay particular attention to the pictures in the directions for the placement of the pre-drilled holes, as there are no written instructions to tell you how to position some of the pieces. Once constructed the set is very sturdy feeling, although I did add two additional joists to firm up the upper deck. I know that it is sturdy enough to support my 3 y/o but I could feel the wood start to sag under my weight (I'm only 180lbs.).
I was missing one board for the rock wall, but other than that everything arrived in good order. Assembly is fairly straight forward and easy; just time consuming. It took me about 22 hours to assemble mostly on my own. It definitely goes faster if you have an assistant to gather the parts for the next step, instead of searching for the parts on your own. I would say that 90% of this set can be built on your own, but there are a few steps where a helper is necessary.
Now that the set is up, it looks great and I'm glad that I spent the money on it. One word of warning, the slide is extremely fast. My son has a look of terror each time he goes down it, but it is more of a thrill, definitely invest in some rubber mulch or something to soften the landing at the end of the slide.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by KimS Disappointed
I am disappointed with the overall product and assembly. The instructions were not clear at times, we were missing a package of bolts, the overall packaging (pieces numbered the same in different boxes), the wood is thin and doesn't feel sturdy in some areas. My husband has done construction for a lot of years and was extremely frustrated putting this together.
