    Answer This Question

    A:  We do not make a tire swing but we do have a spider-web swing that you can use in place of two regular swings. It comes with a trapeze bar already, but an additional one can be purchased separately if needed. Both can be ordered at lifetime.com or special ordered through Home Depot.

          A:  This Play set is recommended for children ages 3-12. However, we hesitate to give exact ages as children come in all sizes. Each swing has a weight capacity of 150 pounds and the slide also has a weight capacity of 150 pounds. The platform has a weight capacity of 600 pounds, so even adults can join in on the fun!

              Kids love it!
              We have a 6, 4, and 1 year old. The kids have loved this playground as well as the neighbor kids! I know we will have plenty of years of use even for our oldest. It took my husband around 9 to 10 hours to build on his own.
                My kids are in love!
                We received the Lifetime Big Stuff Deluxe Playset in return for an honest review and we have been greatly pleased with it. Assembly took about 3 days, and that’s with being restricted on when we could work due to weather. The instructions were fairly straightforward, with a few minor hiccups. We love that the nuts used throughout the majority of the playset lay flat and don’t leave anything to catch children’s clothes or hurt anyone. However, because of the length of the bolts, it was somewhat difficult to get the bolts lined up with the nuts before we could tighten them. The bolts that went through the end caps on the top of the monkey bars were particularly difficult, as the holes in the end caps didn’t line up perfectly and required a lot of effort to get things in place. We also felt it was easier to attach the climbing rope to the leg of the swingset immediately and go ahead and attach the foot on the A-frame instead of waiting to do that when the deck was attached and adding more weight. Additionally, we needed to drill the holes in the deck of the playhouse for the slide before attaching to the swingset, as it’s quite difficult to wedge under the deck to see where to drill, especially when the person with the drill wears bifocals. Otherwise, things went smoothly and went together great! My children have greatly enjoyed playing on the playset and will easily play outside for a few hours now, with plenty of different activities to keep them busy. Their favorite features are the chalkboard, as they have been using sidewalk chalk on everything possible right now, and the map and roads on the floor of the playhouse. The ship’s wheel obstructs access to part of the chalkboard, but that doesn’t seem to bother them too much. The rung spacing on all the ladders is a little too large for kids in the 3-5 range, as they are further apart than a standard ladder, and the younger kids could also benefit from handles on each end of the monkey bars to help them reach the top of the ladders. My kids have learned to deal with those difficulties, but they do have to be very careful to not fall because of them. The roof does not have anything to cover the gap where the two sides come together, so rain will get through easily to anything left on the deck. Admittedly, I prefer the green and grey color scheme of the playset shown in the instructional video, but the bright primary colors that we have on ours are still beautiful and appeal to my young children. The size of the playset is amazing, providing plenty of features without taking up a huge portion of our yard, and will still give plenty of space for all our kids to play as our family grows. Overall, we are very satisfied with the playset and look forward to using it for years to come. We found it to be very sturdy and we have no worries of it wearing out for a long, long time.
                  High Quality Full Featured Playset
                  This playset is the full package. It has everything my kids would want. It's big but we have .3 of an acre and for how big it is, it didn't seem to take up much space in our yard. It took about 10 hours to set up but it wasn't ever difficult. Just a lot of pieces. My kids immediately loved the fort part of the playset. Which is why we wanted this one in particular. Having a place like this outside for our kids to play and use their imagination is exactly what we wanted. The colors are perfect because it looks classy - it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb.
                    Awesome family swing set
                    This swing set has been perfect for my girls! They love having two slides they can both go down and the different swings. They also love the ship wheel! It has so many things for them to do and grow into! It will be perfect for when we have our next kid and they can all have their own swing!
                      Great Quality / Loaded Playset
                      The Big Stuff Deluxe Playset has been an awesome addition to our backyard. It offers such a variety of things that each of our kids are continually playing on it. It literally feels like a playground in our backyard. Our kids' ages range between 2 to 7 and I can see them enjoying something new on this playset for years to come. The entire playset is very sturdy with very little sway with 3 people on the swings. Nice neutral colors fit in well to our backyard. The monkey bars and gymnast bar swing have been real winners for the older kids and slides and chalk board/hang out area are big hits with the younger kids. Everyone loves the swings (we purchased a full bucket swing for the 2 yr old- not pictured). Setup went smoothly. I was able to put it together with my wife's occasional help (you'll definitely need two people for some parts of the install). Instructions were complete and easy to follow. It did take a while though, about 10-12 hours. It was packaged well, coming in a crate with all of the boxes. The parts were finished and packaged nicely with no scratches or dents upon arrival. This is one of their bigger playset so it does require some space in the backyard but for 3 kids, we feel like it's a perfect size for them, family and friends to enjoy for years to come. Overall, really satisfied with this playset.
                        Perfect for all ages!
                        I was ecstatic when I was selected to review the Lifetime Big Stuff Deluxe Playset. When it arrived, the amount of boxes and materials was a bit intimidating. One of the boxes indicated that the instruction manual was inside, so that was extremely helpful. My husband assembled the playset by himself in approximately 14 hours. He said that it was easier to assemble than other swing sets he’s assembled in the past. He noted that you need to pay attention early on when building the A frame otherwise the small holes for the clubhouse ladder won’t line up. He stated that this part of the instructions was not clear. In his opinion, most of it can be assembled with one person, but it would be helpful to have an additional person on some parts. Be prepared to have a way to recycle the shipping materials - there is SO much cardboard! Don’t underestimate the time it takes to unbox and dispose of the materials. There are SO many cool features to this playset! My children are 8, 6, and 2 years old and they were all excited! The clubhouse has a chalkboard that my kids started using right away. There are stars on the ceiling/inside of the roof, so when inside the clubhouse, you can look up and see them. I thought this was a really neat feature. My kids were so excited about this clubhouse, that they ate dinner up there the first night. My 2 year old is able to climb up to get into the clubhouse, but the slide is a bit steep for her. She is able to go down it, but the end of the slide just drops off, so she has a rough landing. The swingset is large, but we live on an acre, so there’s plenty of room. There are 3 swings, a fireman pole, 3-way seesaw, monkey bars, trapeze bar, 2 slides, and rock wall. There are SO many activities to do, so my kids are all occupied. I love this playset because of the variety of activities as it really appeals to kids of all ages. Some of the neighborhood kids came to check it out and even one of the 12 year old boys enjoyed using it. I know that this set will grow with my kids. The colors of this playset aren’t my favorite, but I think they’re pretty typical for any playset (red, blue, yellow). I would prefer something that blends in more with the backyard, but that’s just me. Although we were selected to review this playset, it is totally worth the investment. My children play on it daily and it provides hours of fun. It gets our family outside and we’ve really enjoyed playing with our kids.
                          So much FUN!
                          My kids really like the fact that this playset has vibrant colors. It makes for good pictures too. The assembly took 3 grown men about 7 and half hours. They said it wasn't really difficult but it does take a while. The swings are very wide which was surprising because we did not expect that. The little red chalkboard was also a nice surprise. I am only wishing I would have been aware of this feature because now we need chalk! This set is VERY sturdy. It was definitely made to last and we LOVE it!
                            Great Play Set
                            Our family loves this play set! I was a little worried about the size of it even after measuring our space, but it fits nicely in our yard. Our kids love the options that they have amongst all the features. I would recommend this for sure. For us the green and tan earth colors fit well with our yard, however that probably wouldn’t change much for us if we had a different color scheme. Setting it up definitely takes some time and goes much quicker with two people. It took the better part of two days to set up. Part of that is because we didn’t have two people the entire time. It’s not hard to set up, it just takes time. If you have some older kids it is a good opportunity to get them to help! It is very sturdy and has already provided our family with fun opportunities to be with each other.
                              Lots of entertainment
                              I thought my kids would absolutely love this set, and they do! They have been playing on it every day since it was assembled! I have children ranging in all ages from 1 to 16... the 1 year old basically only uses the swing, but the other kids can use everything! Assembly does require at least 2 people, but it is not too bad at all. It came very nicely packaged on a large crate so you do need to make sure to have access to where you want it set up, otherwise you will have to take all the packaging apart to relocate to it's destination!
                                Love this playset
                                We just got this playset, and it has been great. Our kids have loved it from the day we got it. It's like having a city park in our backyard. Our kids haven't stopped playing on it since we bought it. It's definitely made from high quality materials. I can't see this thing wearing out for years if ever. There's no wood to rot like you see on lots of old playsets. It looks really good in our backyard, too. We love having swings in the backyard and the monkey bars. The assembly was pretty straight forward. We ended up using both the included installation manual and watched some parts of their video on Youtube. It was easy to put together, but it was very time consuming. It probably took us 8-10 hours spread out over a few evenings to assemble. One of the most time consuming aspects was just figuring out which piece I was looking for because there were so many pieces and the metal bars weren't labeled. I think adding removable stickers to the bars would go a long way. But everything fit together like a glove and was easy to do. We were selected to be given this playset for free and review it by Lifetime.
