We are very pleased with this set. I have a home daycare and have children ranging in ages from birth to 4-5. I have researched many, many outdoor swingsets and found that many are just too high for the younger children. This set has a cool "fort" under, which is perfect for the little toddlers, and another fort above, which is great for the ones able to climb the ladder. Again, the height is great. Just enough for them to feel like they are up high, but still safe. The set is sturdy and was fairly easy to put together. My husband and my 11 year old son worked on it together and completed it in about 4 hours. He is pretty handy with tools, but it should be easy for someone who maybe isn't as handy, just follow the directions. It was missing just one piece of hardware, not bad :). It was just one nut that holds the handle by the slide together. My only other complaint, like many others, is that the swings are WAY too high!! It would be impossible for anyone under the age of 8-9 to be able to get on by themselves, and if they somehow did, I feel the height would be very unsafe if they were to fall. This isn't too much of a worry for me, as we have ordered full bucket infant/toddler swings to use with it, since we have both very young babies and toddlers using the set. I have attached a photo with the original swings so you can get an idea of just how high they truly are. I will keep the swings it came with for my older children, 11-12, if they want to use them. This set is definately sturdy enough for the biggest kids also! As much as I like the look of some of the wooden sets, I feel that being able to rinse this set off when dirty, paired with the bonus of NO SPLINTERS, make this set a really smart choice! Overall, we are very happy with our purchase and would definately recommend this set!!

My husband and I bought this for our 2 y/o and 4 month old daughters. I also purchased the toddler swing. I researched swingsets--wood ones and ones like this trying to find what would be best for them now and growing up. Having purchased this one and using it for a little over a month now--I don't think this was the one for the next 5 years. It will do for maybe another 2 years for my oldest daughter. The clubhouse is low and she is already hitting her head on the beam on the lower level--she's 36 inches tall. She can stand on either side of it, but forgets it's right there in the middle. She might have an inch to go before she is too tall for it. I don't know where they came up with 2-8y/o swing set. There is nothing about this swing set that an 8 year old would like, except the swing! The stairs up to the second level are too steep for her to climb without lots of help, ie me picking her up and putting her up there. The slide is too short to be a wavy slide--a very bumpy short slide. But she does love to slide her baby dolls.

Now for the instructions that are included. They are absolutely terrible. My husband is an engineer and the whole time he was putting this together he was cursing the technical writer. He is very meticulous at planning things and putting things together. He pulled out all the parts and laid them out like he wanted them. He separated all the "nuts and bolts". One thing he didn't do was read through the instructions before starting. He just followed the directions step by step. Here are the two that REALLY frustrated him. Step 67 says to "bolt together with assigned bolts in 3 places" but it only points to two places to bolt. However there is a third hole in the area of the two places it points out. So my husband put bolts in three places like the directions read. It should read two like the picture shows. He had to go back and remove the bolt he added, which was a pain to do. Now the one that REALLY got him--step 107 instructs you to secure the rope ladder with the ground anchors, step 108 instucts you to secure the adventure lodge and a-frame with the ground anchors. Once you have secured with the ground anchors it's not going anywhere. The last sentence under step 109c states "BEFORE MOVING THE ADVENTURE LODGE TO A DESIRED LOCATION, FIRST SECURE THE TOWER BASE.....". That sentence should be before step 107 because once you have put in the ground anchors it was absolute H@# putting the screws in to secure the tower base. Of course we had the swing set where we wanted it but didn't have the tower base screws in. So my advice is READ the instructions through first. There are a few other steps that are a little messed up--those are just the two most frustrating ones.

Overall, my 2 year old loves it, so I can't complain. Would I buy it again, probably not knowing that the play lodge is so low and she will be too tall for it soon.

    Post has broken after it was hit by lawn mower. Called Step2. Certain parts can be replaced but not the post. Since it is made of molded plastic need original part to fix.
    Considering the price, Step 2 should stock all replacement parts. Who wants their kids to use a swingset with a broken post?

    We bought it as a birthday gift for all our grandchildren, since it offers something for every age. It exceded our expectations and is so sturdy it even holds grown-ups. The only problem we encountered during the assembly was that the nuts and bolts were not clearly identified which took some figuring out what went where.

    Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful Adventure Lodge Play Center:

    My daughter likes her play structure a lot! I put it together by myself and I have never put anything like that together before. I used the video instructions as well as the written instructions. It wasn't difficult to do, just time consuming. I was also missing 2 pieces that were sent to me. The downside is we live in Florida and the plastic gets HOT. We are going to have to buy/build something to add shade so my daughter can play on it in the middle of the day.

        Our kids love this Step 2 Play Center. We have a small backyard and were looking for something that had a lot of features for our 2 and 5 year olds and this has been a perfect fit. Our kids love the club house and the swings and the rope ladder is a constantly used feature. I would definitely recommend this product. I am not a handyman in any definition of the term and I was able to fully assemble this (with the "help" of a 2 and a 5 year old) in about 6 hours. This is a great American Made product.

          The only problem I had was the rope ladder doesn't seem to be long enough to reach from the top bar to the anchor. I had to buy an added length in order to attach it.

            We researched SO many swingsets and ended up buying this playset for our son's 1st birthday. Must say: What a great buy!! Everyone at his party had a blast on it...we had ages 1-6, and they were playing with it all afternoon! Playdates have been great so far...all the kids want to do is play on this. One of the best parts is the playhouse that's attached...the children really enjoy climbing and playing in it. Love the plastic as well...sturdy, and don't have to worry about splinters. The only thing we had to add was a baby swing for our son. He walks and can play in the playhouse, but won't be able to use the regular swings for awhile. Would highly recommend this playset!!
