Now that it's all put together, our three year old daughter really enjoys this set. The glider is perfect for her, the clubhouse is just her size and the slide is just the right height.

Construction went well, although the directions for the very first step were not clear, so some time was lost there in backtracking to get it right. It took me roughly 9 hours total to assemble the swingset mostly by myself. (There are only a couple of steps that require an additional pair of hands.) Once it was together, it felt quite sturdy and like a solid piece.

FYI, the back chalk "wall" is really just a piece of vinyl, but it works really well with sidewalk chalk and wipes clean with a rag or sponge for the next use. Because of how it is supposed to be hung, that was ironically the most difficult of all the parts to assemble.

Given it's size, I'm expecting we'll get 5 years out of this swingset, then my daughter will be too big for it. But she'll have fun playing the backyard in the meantime.

We purchased this set for our two sons (ages 2 and 4). I assembled it over 1 1/2 days as per the instructions, which were long but well laid out. I pounded the stakes deep into the ground and tightened the hardware as per the instructions. We've now had it for almost a year.

The swing set fits our space well. It has the features we want: two swings, a slide, a place to sit and have lunch or a snack. Our boys love the play set.

However, the set flexed whenever a swing was being used. In particular, the crossbeam from which the swings hang would move back-and-forth, causing the tower structure to twist. As a result, the hardware would quickly become loose.

Our boys are not heavy (40 lbs max) and this happened even when they swung very gently. We tried adding additional braces to the tower and extra stakes into the group, neither of which did stopped the flexing.

After a few months, I copied the A-frame that is on the left side of the structure, putting a new one on the right side of the swings (just where the cross-bar meets the tower).

That was all it took. Now the structure is rock solid. The new A-frame doesn't interfere with the slide or the children's use of the play set.

I can recommend this play set *only* if you are willing to buy 2 extra 2x4s, a 1x4 and a few stakes and hardware. It isn't hard to put up the extra A-frame if you have a standard set of tools and the set should have had it included. But, with this, it is a great set.

Other considerations:
- the swings are a bit close together, but this is standard for sets of this size
- the glider has been excellent
- I was concerned about having ropes instead of chains for the swings, but they have worked very well
- the "chalkboard" is a piece of vinyl (or similar) without a rigid backing (just drawn taught). It is okay, but don't expect much from it.

    Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Springfield Wood Gym Set:

    If I had to buy this swing set over again I would not. It was a pain to put together and in my opinion does not seem like it will last very long. The boards/wood is thin and the fort once put together looks slanted. We were missing pieces so now I have to try and hunt them down either with the manufacturer or with Toys R Us. Now that it's built my daughter loves it but I will not recommend this set to anyone else.

    Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Springfield Wood Gym Set:

    I normally don't leave reviews, but I figured I would on this one.

    First off, Toys R' Us was very helpful. When we got the swing set home, we were missing some parts so after placing a call to the store, they found all the parts we were missing rather than us having to call the manufacturer.

    The manufacturer of this set, however, did not impress me. We were missing close to 6 different types of parts (bolts, main plates, glider hangers, etc). A good 75% of the boards were warped, causing the set to bow to the left slightly. Luckily, it is still sturdy enough to play on, just looks crooked. The fort part of the set is very tiny. My 2 year old son and a 6 year old barely fit in it together. And the "chalk board" is a piece of green tarp.

    It took my husband and a friend the better part of a day to get it together. There are A LOT of pieces and close to 30 bags of different screws. And the directions aren't the easiest to understand. Plus the fact that so many boards were warped, it made it hard to get corners to match up. Once it was together and staked down tho, it's pretty sturdy and I don't worry about my son getting hurt.

    Had we had more room to fit a larger swing set, we would have chosen a different one. This one will work for now though. I just hate that after spending hundreds of dollars on this set, it seems like my son will outgrow it in a few years.

    If you can get it at a discount like we did and you have a smaller yard, go for it. Younger children will enjoy it and it is a fairly sturdy set. However, if you have the room for a larger one, spend the extra money and upgrade. It will be worth it in the long run.

      We got this playset for my 6 year old son. His other aluminum set had rusted. He LOVES playing on it. The little playhouse is so cute. I agree with other reviewers, add a piece of wood to the back of the tarp blackboard. Very tedious to put together. Took my husband and a friend over 10 hours to put up with advanced tools. BUT, it's very sturdy once it's done.

Did not go together easy at all. VERY POOR DESIGN. The size is very deciveing much smaller. I would DEFINATELY NOT recommend to a friend. SAVE YOURSELF FRUSTRATION DO NOT BUY.

My husband did attach some extra wood to the back to give extra support so th kids won't somehow pop through the chalk wall ... It's jut a tarp back... Instructions could have been easier to understand but I hear that's always a problem.
