Ordered this item after doing a lot of research. What I found is that the Playsets with 5 foot decks are sturdier and will last much longer than those with 4 foot decks. Also, kids will enjoy the 5 foot deck until the age of 10 or so.
The item arrived via freight delivery. Be prepared to assist the driver with unloading the boxes. They can be very heavy and bulky.
After items arrived I inventoried each piece and separated them according to size. That made it much easier when looking for a particular piece during assembly.
Assembly took me 20 hours, five hours per day over four days. I did the assembly entirely by myself. There are a couple of times when you really need a second person (like installing the swing boom), but I'm stubborn and did it myself.
I recommend that you have a very good drill driver. I used my ridgid driver and it worked great. 99% of the pieces are pre-drilled which helps a great deal. The cedar is milled very nicely and of good quality.
I would not hesitate to order this again. I enjoyed assembling it. I also bought from Home Depot because of their solid reputation.

Playset came with all the required parts (and even some extras). It took right at 8 hours to put up. I pre-assembled the rock wall, ladder and picnic table, and kitted all the other parts together which took about 2 hours. Then my help showed up and we were able to get most of the set up with 3 people in about 4 hours. Then a couple more hours to finish it up (hang the swings, put on the telescope, flags, steering wheel, tic tac toe etc). The instructions were very good, and well written and illustrated. Components were all high quality and in good condition.
Kids (2 yr old and 4 yr old) loved it immediately and were very excited watching it come together.
Playset was delivered to my home on a full sized semi trailer. We have a 150' foot driveway in a residential sub-division. The truck had no way to get up my drive, so we had to take all the boxes off the pallet and un-package some of it and set it at the end of the driveway and move it manually. But it was free shipping, and the lowest price for this kit I could find.
I sealed all the lumber prior to assembly as others suggested. That was much easier than trying to seal the fully assembled playset.
Will see how this holds up over the years, but initially very pleased with this product.

Happy with purchase.. Because of busy life, work and all, it took my son with his wife, two weeks time, maybe 12 hours in all. Direction weren't so clear at times, and no matter how well we all read the directions, when all done, we had some extra parts....and still haven't figure out why so many black plastic plugs, when the direction only indicted one area that needed 4 plugs. Also some screws were missing, which I had to go to HomeDepot to buy, so really check all parts before starting as we did. The delivery was great, the guy even unloaded down by the park area. Soon I will be sealing it as recommended before the wood turns grey and winter comes.

This swingset was easy to assemble considering all the pieces you see when you open the box. The instructions were detailed enough to follow. My wife and Mother In Law sorted the different pieces of wood onto a big folding table which made them easy to find when needed. I would say for the money this is a very good swingset. My Grandkids love it and I am pleased as well.

Nice set with good variety of entertainment. Took 2 solid days. Hardware not marked, but easy enough to figure out and all lumber was identified. Just took time and had help from 2 and a half year old! Nice solid set and the cedar looks like it will last. Printed out directions in some area's, primarily the initial pole set up pieces to make reading easier. The B&W printout that came with it made it difficult to determine where certain T-Nuts should be installed, but other than that, No issues setting up. The climbing wall was an instant favorite!
