Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LouMar Mom For kids of all ages and maintenance free!!!
We bought this swing set when my oldest was 3. At that time she needed my hands-on supervision but she would happily swing and slide for over an hour; we added an infant swing when our 2nd child arrived and she loved to swing too. In our previous house, this set with a six foot safety perimeter took up our entire (small) backyard, but it was so worth it because it kept my kids active for 1-2 hours a day when the weather cooperated. Sweet memories.
We bought this set with the long-term in mind. Now that our kids are 2 and almost-6, we really appreciate our investment as one that they'll use for at least another decade. We frequently have visitors aged up to 11 years old and they all gravitate to it. Adults even like to swing on it because the swing seats are comfy even for adult sized behinds.
It's wonderful that it requires NO MAINTENANCE. So many families we know bought wooden structures that weather over time, get splintery and require maintenance. In my observation, fussy wood structures just don't appeal to 4-year-olds, 12-year-olds and adults alike as our swing set does.
I'm back on the LIfetime website to look for the manual and dimensions so we can plan out the swing set area for our new house. We just started moving in and after my husband assembled the set, I can't keep the kids off of it! The first thing we're doing in our new (much, much bigger) yard is leveling a swing set area and adding 12" of playground bark chips to keep everyone as safe as we can. The set is totally stable and doesn't require any staking, but my 5 year old is challenging herself more and more on the monkey bars and trapeze these days.
Obviously, I strongly recommend this swing set. We're so glad we bought one 2+ years ago. What else does a child need besides to swing, slide and climb except maybe some sticks and mud? And what parent or grandparent doesn't want something that gets their kiddos outside and doesn't require anything but assembly and bark chips? Easy decision.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TimTech Easy to assemble - very sturdy
Assembly was easy. All parts and assembly holes lined up. I completed it by myself in around 3 hours. Instructions were easy to understand.
This playset is sturdy, the swings and chains are heavy duty, and the powder-coating is very nice. My child has used it for a couple of weeks and I think we all ready got our money's worth. I bought this instead of one of those wooden playsets based on the reviews mentioning assembly difficulties, required maintenance, and durability. Note: I added the optional child swing you see in the picture.

We got this as a Christmas present for our kids who are aged 8 & 4. This is a perfect size for them. The play set is sturdy and did not take too long to put together. We have had neighbors stop by and ask where it was purchased from.

So pleased with this set so far. My children are 7 and 9 and this set is perfect for them. Nothing too fancy, but enough to keep them happy. Put together in about 4 hours by 2 adults. Also love how nicely this earth tone set blends into the backyard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernMom Sturdy, well made, excellent playset!
We LOVE this playset! Got it as a group gift for all our kids for Christmas, with their grandparents pitching in too. We considered many of the wood playsets but were concerned about quality and maintenance, as well as their restrictions with our oldest being 11 and tall for her age; none but this one have really good reviews, and once we saw that this had the primary things we were looking for - swings and monkey bars - we decided to go for it. Large gauge steel poles, 1000 pound limit, even our 11yo can swing on it, all of the kids can play on it at once and there's something for everyone. We are very pleased with this purchase! My husband and one other man put it together in 3.5 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SillyMustang Who Knew?
I purchased this set because my darling grandkids had outgrown the cheapo swing set I bought at a discount store. They came and delivered and set it up in the snow. I was amazed how fast they cleared a spot and set it up in the freezing cold. But the thing I was most surprised at, is that grandma and grandpa can now play like kids on the swing set. Who knew? What a fun treat that we can interact with the kids even more. It will bring us together and if we can swing on it the kids won't be outgrowing it until they out grow us.
