This is the first play set that I have purchased. We bought it mainly for its price, features (2 slides, swings and sandbox), and look. It is very appealing and sturdy enough even for me.I bought this before anyone made a review. [...] What is the overall end goal of the product? To have something for the kids to play on. For that alone, I will give it a 4 star rating.Now the specifics. The playset comes in 2 pretty heavy boxes and the wave slide separate (mine was in clear plastic). None of the wood was labeled at all. It took us an hour and a half to measure and label all wood pieces before construction began. I think this is necessary. If you take this time to sort through and label everything you will know if you are missing anything and you will be able to find things easier as the instructions call for them. Of all the wood, I had 1 broken piece. I called the customer service line the next day and they shipped it to me within 4 days. Happy with the customer service. A majority of the wood was straight. Only a few pieces really warped but usable.I did not inventory the hardware (screws and bolts) as they were each packaged separately but type. And there is a lot!! After it was all done, I was missing 4 required pieces of hardware and had a lot of extra hardware left over. I went back through the instructions and visually inspection the playset to make sure I did not miss anything. I hadn't. There is just a lot of hardware left over.The instructions are fairly hard to follow. The pictures and details are not the great. More close up diagrams of the connections would have been nice. There were over 40 steps to complete this project. I am a pilot for the military and know how to read instructions and diagrams. There were a few mistake made in the construction of this playset but nothing that could not be fixed easily.All said and done, my daughter loves her new playset. She is 2-1/2 and I think she will get plenty of use out of it. It is sturdy enough for me to swing on, climb up into the fort and even slide down the straight slide. Havn't tried the wave slide yet. I would recommend this to someone. Just be cautious of the instructions and the many pieces. See pictures here.

Assembly of the swingset was relatively easy, once you got to assembling it. Now, that required about an hour to measure each piece of wood, label it with a Sharpie, and line it up in order (A1s, A2s, A3s, etc) in my back yard -- THAT made finding specific parts very easy. The instructions do at least tell you in which of the two boxes the piece will be found, so that was, I guess, nice.

Assembly took me, alone (with two Sawhorses) about 20-25 hours, it's hard to tell. I required an assistant for about 2 total hours -- probably for 10 minutes to literally hold the walls straight up/keep them from falling while I installed the cross bars, another 10 minutes for the small fort, and the rest of the time to put the roof on the fort and attach the swing bar.

On the "things that are great" side -- it has two slides and three swings. My 2-year-old is fascinated by it, as are his friends, and there is minimal argument/trouble with lines to the slides.

On the "things that are not so great" side -- as one reviewere mentioned, the chalk "board" is a plastic tarp that does not have any wood backing. I used a 12" x 30" x 1" piece of a spare shelf from an earlier project to make a safety backing. I'll probably cut out the chalkboard and mount it to a solid piece of wood this weekend.

Instruction manual complaints:
-- the step (28?) that has you mount the inner supports in the roof once it is already mounted to the fort? that should go after step 5, when the roof is assembled on the ground and sitting there for 20 more steps
-- the step to install the chalk "board" has you firmly tighten all screws and bolts. the NEXT STEP has you COMPLETELY REMOVE them, only to further install the chalk "board" and re-mount/re-tighten the bolts.
-- the pictures in the manual are incredibly low resolution, making it fairly difficult to find exactly where specific pieces of wood are aligned and from which side you insert the screws/bolts/etc.

Anyway, long story short, this took me about 20-25 hours (in one 7-hour day and three 4-6 hour days, depending on rain and exhaustion). I needed help for about 2 hours (30 minutes in the early stages, 1.5 hours in the late stages), but otherwise doing this on my own was easy enough. The annoying hour of measuring all of the wood (and, more importantly, LABELING ALL OF THE SCREWS/BOLTS/HARDWARE) was not as bad as I thought-- I lined up all of the hardware (S1 S2 S3 S4 etc) after labeling it and lined up the wood in my back yard as mentioned previously, which resulted in relatively easy preparation for each step.

**Tip: Measure each piece of wood, label it, see if there are any major flaws! Line up the wood in order and in piles
**Tip: Check each pack of hardware (screws/etc) and write the manual nicknames (S1, S2, G5, Z, etc) on the white label that only gives a description (2-1/4" wood screw, et al). Line up the hardware on a large table and cut into the side of the bags ONLY when necessary. Leave all hardware in the bags as much as possible!
**Tip: Be sure you read the manual for the specific hardware requirements. I got burned a dozen or so times bringing 4 of bolt H3 out to the swingset only to realize I had forgotten to bring a 1/4" locking washer, a 1/4" washer, and a 1/4" t-nut for each bolt.

**Tip: When those steps come up, assemble the bolt, locking washer, washer, and t-nut before bringing them to the swingset construction area. This way, you'll have all of the components -and- you won't have to dig around in your pockets or risk dropping/losing any hardware trying to find that tiny 1/4" locking washer.

Good luck!

Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Laurelwood Wood Gym Set:

This swing set is poorly poorly constructed. Half of the lumber is warped so you can not get anything square. If I didnt have so much trouble with toys r us I would return this and go with a better quality. I would recomend going to a store that only sells swing sets!! We are missing a few pieces and had to just make do with what we had. I honestly do not see this swing set lasting more than 3 years tops. For just a few more hundred dollars you could get a better quality swing set.

Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Laurelwood Wood Gym Set:

Listen!! If you are going to undertake the assembly of this swing set, you better be somewhat handy, have the right tools, and PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL!!! Im talking study EVERY picture to get the right board with the holes in the right position. I don't believe all the bad assembly reviews this has gotten. But if it was undertaken by someone not familiar with ever putting together a swing set then I can understand why. This is my second "put together woodedn swingset". I assembled my first 5 years ago. this was no different but it DOES take 2 HANDY people 18 hours to put together. But I figured that going into it!! been up now for a week and the kids couldn't be happier!!!! The construction is sturdy (if put togehter properly) and I am a 240lb male and I swing on it with no rocking or creaking! Have fun but remember it will take 2 full days!

No Problems

By Justin

from Ripley, West Virginia

Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Laurelwood Wood Gym Set:

I bought this swing set a few months ago and just got around to putting it up. I read all the reviews for the product and just don't see what the problem is with this swing set. It looks great it is very sturdy and it went together pretty easy. The only issue u had was that I was shorted 1 piece from the factory and one peice was warped pretty bad. Other than that everything went smooth. I will say that each peice need to be taken out of each of the two boxes measured and numbered. Keep the two boxes (Box A and Box B) separated from one another and the numbering of the peices will go a lot quicker. If u don't number the peices before assembly it will be a very rough and frustrating task to complete. That being said me and my wife assembled the smaller parts if the swing set inside the house and the following day began assembly on the two towers. Non-stop work time would have been around 15 hours or so. After the set was assembled and before anchoring it to the ground my neighbor got on one of the swing and tried it out. He weighs between 185-200lbs and the swing set didnt rock at all not did it crack and pop in any way like I thought it may. If it will hold that kind of weight I feel that it deserves the review that I gave it!!!!! My son is gonna LOVE this thing!

Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Laurelwood Wood Gym Set:

I'm a person who believes in do it right or dont do it at all, that being said big backyard shouldn't do it at all. I'm a avid diyer and i love projects like this. Its like a huge puzzel, but this thing i rather burn. 1st off they mislabeled the hardware 3times, second off the screws are cheep and kept snapping , wich btw i never snaped a screw before. I predrilled the hole and it snapped, so i try'd a old school trick i learned of "greasing the screw" to reduce friction once again snapped. Also on anotger note toysrus needs to get nrw people stocking. The box looked like a pitbull tore it apart. I dont think they take pride in what they sell or how the keep it. I guess in conclusion lets start seeing the small buisnesses come back, and made in America.

      DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!! If I could give this no stars I would. I thought I was getting a great deal, but boy was I wrong. First of all it was very difficult to put together because the instructions are terrible and some of the holes were pre-drilled incorrectly. It took my husband and dad about 20 hrs total. And they are very handy guys.

      Now, we have only had the playscape for 7 months and the boards have started to peel, crack, and mold really bad. The wood is really cheap and not worth the money we paid. The playscape hasn't even seen bad weather at all. It is a piece of junk. It probably won't last another 6 months. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!!!

      Also, my son is 3 and him swinging alone makes the entire set sway really badly.

      Really difficult to assemble it. Most of parts are not labeled. Some parts are distorted and need to call the company for replacement.

      Instruction is horrible -- in some steps, the important guide is not mentioned and had to learn during the installation. A lot of time was wasted by this poor instruction.

      It is not worth buying this swing set even it is cheaper. Time is valuable as well.

        Brought this product for my 5 y/o twins. The girls love it after several hours of assembly. We were prepared for the boards not being marked. We were not prepared for the swing side being so unstable. We went out and purchased extra 2X4's to make the swing more stable.Now we are finding that some of the wood is splinting. Yes, the wood smells good, but it is not durable.

          This swing set is well worth the price. Yes, you do have to measure the wood pieces because they are not labeled but if you have someone setting it up that knows how to do stuff like that and is not a dumb---, this swing set is not that hard to put together at all. It is time consuming I'll say that but you will not find a swing set that isn't unless if you buy one off the showroom floor that is already set up. This swing set does not have a higher star because of people giving it bad reviews because of the assembly so I hope someone doesn't turn this swing set down for another one just because of that. It did take 2 guys that knew what they were doing 12 hours to do, but they took their time, put it together right, and my 2 year old daughter LOVES it. Not to mention you can't get much better of a swing set than this for [$]. It was on sale at Toys R Us for 20% off regular or sale price. But what other swing set can you find that has 2 SLIDES! Seriously, this is such a nice, sturdy swing set (I am 120lb and I can swing on this and climb in the tower and go down the big slide) that I'm sure will last.

          My father in law purchased this set for my 3 year old. We intended to assemble it ourselves, then upon reviewing the installation instructions, we decided to hire a contractor. It took 2 well qualified men about 11 hours to assemble. None of the wood was labeled, and the instuctions were very disorganized. I wouldn't attempt it.
          However, after it was finally finished, my son loves it! It's very sturdy, and all of the wood is in great shape!! I would recommend this to anyone, as long as you have a professional assemble it!

            By myself, it took about 14 - 16 hours to assemble. I did sort the hardware and label the wood before I started building. While assembling I had to redrill a hole. Once assembled, the playset twists with the torque of my 5 year old swinging on the yellow swing. Not certain why 4x4's weren't used for the major supports. The cedar wood did make my garage smell nice for a couple days but doesn't cut it when it comes to strength. Replacing/reinforcing the major uprights on both the fort and smaller structure. Also noticed the 2x6's that hold the swings bends and bows when my 5 year old swings...need to fix that also. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't have bought it.
