Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stephanie Great playset!
We did a lot of research and finally decided on this playset. It was a great choice! It arrived earlier than the expected delivery date. My husband assembled it in a weekend, and said the directions were very clear and specific. I like that it's a bit larger scale. I'm 5'9" and can stand up under the canopy, so hoping it will last our two boys a long time! The one thing of note is the color is a bit different than pictured. It is sort of a reddish stained cedar I think, but looks very nice! We've had lots of compliments on it already.

My grandchildren are having such a great time with this set. There is so much for them to do, that there has been no fighting among the three of them. Their ages are 2-5. We ordered a bucket swing for our 8 month old, and put it where the trapeze was suppose to go....it was an easy switch.....this way two swings remain for the older kids.
The set went together easier than expected. Two people could easily put this together. The pdf instructions were very helpful and I recommend that it gets looked at prior to setting up the play set...it listed what tools were needed before getting started, weight limitations and maintenance/care to ensure years of fun.
There were some screws that were missing (or maybe they got lost in the tall grass when we assembled it) - But we picked some up at our local Home Depot. If we didn't have to do that, it would have gone together in one day.

After reviewing many products across the board from plastic to custom built we settled on the gorilla play set and are thrilled. Pretty easy to set up alone with minimal help to complete a couple steps. My 4 year old loves it and the only downside is that it is scaled for young kids and I can see her outgrowing it quickly. Still worth it but may be worth spending a little more to get something larger. We will have to wait and see how it fairs through a New England winter.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Momof2 Great product
This problem may be fixed by the time anyone reading this review receives the product as the online instructions are correct, but the wood sizes in the directions did not correspond to the wood received, one side of the fort was a few inches shorter than shown in the directions.
The quality of the wood itself could definitely be improved but the swing set components were of excellent quality. I did seal the wood before installing the swing set as advised by other reviewers (and the instructions themselves, though I thought the product was supposed to be pre-treated). Looks great in the yard and my daughter loves it but we'll see how well this product holds up over time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Erik Perfect for a toddler
Overall great play set. As soon as we set it up, to our surprise, our two year old was able to climb up the rock wall and slide down the slide. She loves it, cannot get her inside at the end of the day. Perfect for her size as she will be able to grow into it. Had to purchase a toddler swing since she is too little for the swings that come with it. Easy to set up with a second person to assist you. Make sure to have all the tools, especially the deep socket wrenches, or you will have to take a run to the store. I had not need for the vice grip pliers the directions say are mandatory. Also, make sure to have a couple of batteries charged for your cordless drill. It would have been a long day if we didn't have them. It took us 8hours to set up, which included a run to Home Depot in the middle. So give yourself a full day. Make sure to have help to accept delivery. It comes on a 12 foot pallet and the company that delivers will only drop off at the curb. It is very heavy. Took two people for small boxes and three for the heavy boxes to get in back yard.
