Overall, this swingset is good. Keep in mind, it is at the low price end of the wood swingsets, so you get what you pay for. Keep your expectations in check. I was not disappointed because I had read the other posted reviews and knew what to expect. Definitely wait for it to go on sale.
The swing beam is a 2x6, and it is 7' high. The A-frame is made of 2 2x4's, and the fort is made of 4 vertical 2x4's. The is only a 10" gap between the swings, so they are a little close. The deck of the fort is about 4' high, which is just right. The chalk board is a tarp, but it works okay, especially with sidewalk chalk. The monkey bar beams are 6' high. There are only 3 round bars, but they are close enough together for small kids. The wood makes for better grip than metal monkey bars. There are no 4x4's anywhere. The slide is sturdy and good. The glider and swings are fine for young kids. Monkey bars are great for kids just trying to learn, and not too high off the ground. Did not use the sandbox. Our kids did not use the rock wall blocks. They just climb up it like a ladder.
Definitely sort the hardware, as other writers have suggested. I added extra stakes everywhere and one extra wood bracket to the fort for stability because our backyard is not level. I assembled myself in about 8 hours, with help from my wife to stand up the fort and swing A-frame. Nothing is too heavy. The instructions are clear (for an engineer). I had to re-tighten all the bolts after 1 week, but this is in the directions. After that, it was solid.
My daughters are 5 and 2-1/2, and the neighbors are a 6 year old boy and 3 year old girl. We assembled it in June and played on it all summer. It was perfect for our kids. We hesitated buying it this year because of the economy, but we are glad we got it because the kids had a fun summer on it. We have had it 4 months and still love it!

We shopped for a swing set for almost a year - this was exactly what we wanted and it was within $100 of our budget, which was reasonable for this kind of item.

We started to put it together on Saturday morning and finished it around 6 pm on Sunday. It was difficult until we got the right tools - a square bit for your drill is extremely helpful. There were several boards that were warped and several steps that didn't seem right, but in the end, following the directions worked. The whole swingset looked horribly crooked - we decided about 3/4 of the way through that it was better to have it straight than level - you can't have both. Once finished, the floor of the fort is not level, but we figured that it might be so that water can roll off. We figure that it will last about 4 years, but our daughter is 5, so that's long enough for us. I do plan to water seal it ASAP.

Our daughter absolutely LOVES this swing set. Now, in fairness, she probably would have loved any swing set, but this one had everything that she wanted - fort, swings, glider, slide and monkey bars. She's played on it every day since it was finished!

    Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Carlisle Wood Gym Set:

    We were so excited to get this swing set for our daughter for her 3rd birthday. Putting the set together took much longer than stated and my husband needed lots of help. The unit was always a little flimsy, but now it leans to the right. The wood is extremely weathered and looks as if it is starting to peel. The monkey bar wood is very rough. The top canvas has torn off and the swings are already discolored. We do live in a windy area and expected the set to weather over time, but after 3 years the deterioration is significant. Don't waste your money.

          Comments about Big Backyard 1009842 1009842 Carlisle Wood Gym Set:

          9/7 very easy to order online, 100% PAIN after that. 9/17 shipping company called to arrange a time asking when I'd be available to help the driver unload the truck. I said I didn't pay $230 in shipping to help unload 500lbs of playground equipment. Shipper said the vendor didn't order a lift gate truck so it was already loaded on a truck with a single driver who couldn't unload it by themselves. I said so put it on another truck. They said they could but I'd have to pay the driver $165 cash the day of the delivery. TOTAL SCAM! I refused delivery. Shipper said they'd return it to the vendor and I'd receive a full refund in the next 7-10 days. I called Toys R Us right after hanging up with the shipper to notify them of the return coming. She said she'd note it on the account. Refund never showed up. 9-24 Called Toys R Us for status. They said they saw where I called on the acct on 9/17 but because I didn't accept delivery of the item and then try to return it to a local store (?!?!) they couldn't issue a return refund shipping notice and couldn't track the playground set. He further said that it looked like I had signed for a delivery. I demanded they fax me any paperwork they had that had my signature. Toys R Us rep then said, well maybe you didn't sign for it, but we don't know where the playground is so they couldn't do anything until it showed up. I asked him if he heard how ridiculous this sounded. That Toys R Us has NO TRACKING or contact information about THEIR shipping subcontractor. I then called the Canadian shipper with the tracking number I had in the Toys R Us confirmation email. Canadian shipper gave me a new tracking number that said the US shipper had sent it back to the manufacturer on 9/20. Called Toys R Us again with new tracking info and they still said they couldn't do anything. I'm still out $650. I had to call my bank telling them everything that has happened and they recommended doing a chargeback on the credit card for the full amount. UNBELIEVABLE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!! We will NEVER buy anything from Toys R Us EVER AGAIN!!

          Assembly wasn't the easiest, but had no issues with holes not lining up nor missing hardware. It did take a couple of days for my husband to assemble and he is fairly handy. Swings are adjustable, my two year old has no problem climbing on any of them on the lowest link. Really wish the wood were a little "beefier" and not 1x4, but for the price [$] + 20% off, it's well worth it. My daughter is on it everyday!

          This swingset is terrible quality. The holes don't line up, the screws split the wood when trying to assemble and multiple pieces of wood BROKE while trying to assemble! I can't imagine how unsafe it would be with children' actually PLAYING on it (that is, if you're able to get it put together in one piece without broken pieces!).

                      We own a childcare center and wanted a playset for school-age children. This is a durable, quality playset to begin with and later to add on to. An almost 80 year old retired Architect put this together by himself with little assistance by a parent. It was up in three days as they worked a couple of hours a day due to the rainy weather here. Once up, the Architect made sure it was stable and didn't move so it will be safe for the kids. What we like that it is child friendly, it attracts attention to the center and the kids love it for climbing and playing on. We will be adding on to the set in the future. It is worth what we paid for it.

                      It took about 8 hours to put together because the wood and screws are not labeled. Would have been much easier to do if peieces were labeled. Doesnt seems to be sturdy enough for a child over 8 to play on it, the wood is flimsy.

                        We picked this up at the black friday sale and got an incredible deal on it (even though it was cold and we got rained on). It took my husband and 2 of his friends about 7 hours to assemble (breaks included). The instructions were clear and there wasn't anything missing. Our little one wants a pirate themed fort, so we added a few extras. My husband, who weighs about 230#, hung from the monkey bars and it held him and an adult and a teenager were able to swing on the swings at the same time with no worries. If you are expecting to get this and put it up in a couple of hours, you are going to be greatly disapointed. If you are willing to put some work into it, this is an awesome deal for the price! We are looking forward to many years of entertainment for our 5 year old!
