Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by backyardkid it's nice
it only took a few hours for the two of us to build it. three of us, if you count our kid playing in the box it came in. definitely put it in the shade if possible. it's nice and a good size for growing with. the colors blend with the trees in our backyard so it's easy on the eyes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sal1 Kids love it.
Kids really love it, so it is well worth the money. They play on it, around it, under it, dangle off of it-which is scary for a parent to watch especially when they stand on it. Just make sure to place it on level ground and push the bottom bars down and out all around so it is steady.
My husband and I put it together in about 30 min. at 9 pm with minimal light (but he is a builder while I read out the instructions). I reviewed the instructions first and wrote in green bar with sticker or green bar w/o, brown bar with or w/o sticker, short bolt, long bolt, regular nut and nut with coating, 15 black climbing grippers and washers instead of looking at something like ADE to ADC to ADE connect to EFB-1 to EFE-2 with aa add ae...comes with everything to put it together except a socket wrench.
Put together the bars and repeat then start adding bars to connect. JUST hand tighten the bolt/nut because you will need to remove the nut to add the next set of bars...tighten everything down at the end once you shape it and do a walk around to tighten everything up.
It moves faster with 2 adults, but if I had to do it by myself it would be about 3 hours using the side of the house/fence/kids for help while reviewing the steps.

This was purchased as a gift and shipped quickly arriving as expected in great shape
Assembly takes approximately 3 hrs and is easier with 2 people
The climbing handholds are a nice feature
Size and quality of the materials make this a very durable and fun addition

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChicagoParent Sturdy and weather resistent
Once assembled, the dome is very sturdy. I like that the bars are connected with a rock-climbing type of plastic hold. Not only does it reinforce the connectors, but it helps my son (age 5) grab/climb. The coating on bars means it doesn't get too hot in the sun.
The dome itself is lightweight enough to move for mowing the lawn, but not light enough to move while kids play on and jump off of it.
It took my husband an afternoon to assemble with some minor frustration. According to him, it wasn't too difficult.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mustard Seed Mom Sturdy alternative to cheap swingsets.. We hope.
Our kids are 10, 7, and 3 and after being frustrated by poor quality on a supposed top brand expensive wooden playset, we saw the good reviews on this and decided to try it. Their favorite part of the previous set had been the monkey bars.
Assembly took 2 men 2 1/2 hours. The instructions were a big help. The kids are thrilled with it. The youngest hasn't quite figured out how to climb to the top, which is just fine, but that will happen soon enough.
My 150 lb self can climb it, it seems very sturdy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenniana Would recommend
This seems to be a wonderful product! It did require four hours to assemble alone, because the directions were not entirely clear. For example, directions would instruct to link two pieces, but the parts were not all labeled. This is a well-built product and seems fairly sturdy, though I do see the bars moving a little bit at the top as my children climb around and dangle from it, etc. My husband went over the entire dome twice tightening up all the screws and making sure all the washers and such were in place properly. Still, our children love it. This is larger than it seemed from the photo, and that makes my happy. This was a great buy!
