I'm part of the Step2 test drive mom's program for bloggers and received the Naturally Playful Woodland Climber for a review on my site.

This compact playground offers hours of fun play without taking up lots of space! The colors are bright and the larger size appeals to both young and older kids. The Naturally Playful Woodland Climber is a wonderful way to give your kiddos the fun of the playground any day of the week!

Everything in the box was easy to lift out and very light. There were 11 pieces not including the bag of screws that they came with.
Most of the large pieces ended up fitting together by pushing them into place.
There are screws that are used to reinforce the climber and keep the sides attached to the floor area. I recommend using a power drill. There are pre-determined spots for the screws to go but no holes. With the plastic being so thick, we weren't able to hand screw them into the climber so our power drill came in very handy!

After all was done, the put together time came to about 45min! Not too bad!

The Naturally Playful Woodland Climber is the perfect size for both my daughter (2) and my son (1). It's large enough that my daughter can play on it and feel as if she is at the big playground and small enough that my son can still interact with it. He particularly likes the little fort space underneath! The slide is a wonderful height, allowing them both to feel safe going down it.

I had to show my daughter how to use the climbing wall on the sides, but once she got the hang of it, she uses that more now then the stairs! I love that the climber offers 2 steering wheels which allows them both to use one at the same time, eliminating a possible fighting match!

All in all, this climber is loved by our entire family! I highly recommend the Naturally Playful Woodland climber, especially for those looking to conserve space!

    I purchased this for my grandson's first birthday. He loves it. Easy assembly - I did it all by myself in a very short time!! The only part I don't like is the very bottom two pieces which are not really secured on, only slide on. But doesn't affect performance. Grandson loves the steering wheels!!!!

      Durable sturdy product, very easy to put together even at 5 months pregnant. Only thing-No screws included. Slide and ladder were difficult to put on. Colors are very gender neutral. My almost 15 month old daughter cant climb the ladder or the rock wall yet, but she loves to be put on the platform and slide down.

          Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Woodland Climber™:

          We discovered at the park that my 12 month old son loved going down slides, so we decided to purchase a climber. We chose this climber as we thought it would last for many years. He got it for Christmas (13 months old) and so far loves it. He loves going down the slide and is now starting to climb up the ladder by himself. He also loves crawling underneath the climber and playing a little hide and seek game. We have this in our backyard and it seems very sturdy. Assembly was super easy; it took us about 20 minutes to put it together. The only con is that the two steering wheel things are very tight and my son can not turn them. He will need to get older and get some more strength to be able to move them.

          A shopper asked: Can someone who has the Woodland Climber give me the footprint dimensions of just the fort part, and the width of the slide and ladder and how far they stick out?

          Joyce C: I got this climber for my grandsons 2nd birthday. He lives in another state but I think the slide is probably 4ft in length. He is almost 3yrs old now and 3ft tall but the slide is longer than he is. This will be of use to him for a good 3 to 4 yrs longer. Apr 12, 2013

          Jennifer W: Hmm... trying to recall. My husband assembled; I was his assistant--would have been difficult putting item together alone. As for taking apart--I am thinking you could reverse the steps? Don't remember if any pieces permanently lock into place, like with some toys...I would recommend keeping original box for storing pieces. Sorry if not very helpful. I would ask customer service.

          Side note: my son loved this product and it served its purpose! We got it at our son's physical therapist's recommendation to help with mild central hypotonia (weak stomach muscles) and it helped strengthen his muscles by climbing the stairs. He never really was interested in the rock wall. We kept it outside and I wanted to bring it inside during the winter but found it was impossible to clean thoroughly so that never happened! Maybe plan on keeping as an indoor toy or outdoor toy.

          Step2Staff: I apologize that no one has yet responded to your question. We do recommend that all of our climbers be placed on a level location. Mulch or playground chips are always a good option. Below is the snapshot of our installation guidelines for this Woodland Climber™

          1.Create an obstacle-free site to reduce injury. Maintain a minimum distance of
          6.5 feet (2 m) from structures or obstructions (examples: a fence, buildings, garages,
          houses, low hanging branches, tree stumps/roots, large rocks, bricks, concrete,
          laundry lines, or electrical wires.

          2.Choose a level location for the equipment to reduce the likelihood of the play set tip
          ping over and loose fill surfacing materials from washing away during heavy rains.

          3. Fall Height: 54 inches. Do not install product or surfacing material over concrete,
          asphalt, packed earth, grass, carpet or any other hard surface. Playground equipment
          for home use SHOULD NOT BE USED indoors without installed fall protection. A fall
          onto a hard surface can result in serious injury. Playground Surfacing Materials guide
          lines for acceptable fall protection are included In this instruction sheet (see table
          X3.1). To maintain the appropriate level of loose fill material, use containment, such as
          digging out around the perimeter and/or lining it with landscaping edging. Installations of rubber tiles or poured-in-place surfaces (other than loose-fill materials) generally require a professional and are not “do- it- yourself”projects.
