Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Homedepotbacon Planning is key
Some confusion with which bolts and nuts go where but overall good product. Plan on about 3 8 or so hour days and lay it all out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VirginiaGrandpa Good quality product and value
Good Quality product and value. Well engineered. Comprehensive instructions made assembly very straight forward. While individual wood pieces are fairly thin, when assembled the play set is very sturdy. I was particularly pleased with the individual packages for the hardware (and the routine inclusion of an extra fastener for many packages to allow for dropped and lost pieces in the grass). That, coupled with the clear marking on all the wood made assembly a lot easier! I recommend taking the time at the beginning and organizing the wood pieces and hardware bags (a table adjacent to the work area for the hardware works great) as it will help speed assembly a lot. I also recommend drilling of pilot holes to prevent splitting. I was very pleased with the play set (as is my granddaughter and her friends) and recommend it to those looking for an economical set for small children.

I assembled this on my own and it took 14.5 hours. All part of the process. Well worth the time for my grandson. It is well built and very sturdy. Must ensure its on perfectly level ground. Well worth the cost.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KC13 Super cute, Great size!
This is the perfect size for my back yard. I didnt want something to big but I wanted something big enough that would last and this is perfect. I wish the wood was stronger, while putting it together boards started to split. Other than that this is a great buy and super cute!

Besides it took long to get it. The slide was all bent up once I received it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Great Product_Not So Great Assembly Instructions
My son and I required about 16 hours to fully assemble the Playset. Once completed, we and the 2-year old grandson were delighted to see how attractive it is and how many play features it has. If only the instructions were improved in two ways, my overall rating would be 5 stars. First, we could not read the part reference on many of the pieces, a big problem because of hundreds of pieces to be assembled. It appears the ink had absorbed into the cedar causing the letters and numbers to be unreadable. Second, several (3 or 4) of the planks were not marked as to whether the slots should be on the upper or lower edge and/or which end the placed them, requiring in some cases that we disassemble and reassemble portions of the structure. It seems these improvements could be made with relative ease and this would make the assembly work less frustrating and not nearly as time-consuming.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sarge20 Poor quality
Don't typically leave reviews, but, for the money we paid I would have expected higher quality wood, most of the wood used is smaller than a 2x4. The instructions are poorly written example they use SAE through the entire installation, than on the last step or two to drill metric holes. The screw holes are so close to the ends of some of the wood I'm sure it will crack through. The finish was flaking off as we handled the pieces so we decided to get some clear flat paint in an attempt to get it to last longer.......just not impressed.......you may ask, if we didn't like it why did we keep it.......it was delivered in a large truck and it seemed it would be more of a pain to return it than to just keep it.....so we'll see how it goes. Not sure if other manufacturers use better materials or not but I can't recommend this company

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kendra Great product overall for price.
It does take forever to assemble and the wood is weak (no adults climbing on this one!) but for the overall price it was a great buy though!
