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!!

We put it in the backyard so that our 2 1/2 year old could play in the backyard. The glider is good, but the ropes on the swings are very short so our son who is pretty tall for his age needs help getting in and they don't swing as good because of how short they are. the stairs to the slide are good, but the slide is not as tall as you might think it would be from the description.

    We bought this for our two and a half year old son. He loves climbing the ladder and playing in the forts. We added a toddler bucket swing, but he loves the glider too. My husband and I put this together without any problems. We are happy with the quality and price.

    Wears Fast

    Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Adventure Lodge Play Center with Glider:

    Upon initial purchase we were very happy with this swingset. However, we purchased it in April and in only a couple of months it already started showing wear. First the swings started fraying and then the canopy over the slide started fading. By August the entire canopy had completely faded. By November the canopy was not only faded but also began tearing. As of now, the canopy has a large linear tear along the edge. This swingset is used infrequently by a 2 year old girl. Sadly, it looks like we've had it for years and has been used by many children. Very disappointing for the price.

              We recently moved to Utah and were looking for a playset that wasn't wood (splintering) and not metal (rusting). We found this plastic set and after reading all the reviews and some youtube reviews on this product purchased it for our 2 and 5 year old sons. They LOVE it and play on it snow, rain or shine. They can grow into it as they are too young to use the ladder yet but love to eat lunch in the bottom of the house and love the glider. Great purchase!

              My three kids have been wanting this particular swing set. I couldn't refuse the 20% discount (which was $200 off the $1,000 price. So I feel $800 is a pretty good deal to take advantage of.

              Needed play set small enough for my 2 year old without me worrying about it being to big for her age. I finally bought this specific one because of the bonus sale. Without that I would still be comparing swing sets.

              Carla J on Mar 26, 2015
              I have a few of the STEP2 items and find the quality very good. We have a wooden slide in the backyard, but think it is a bit too big for a 3yr old. Our 6yr old does find, but chasing around a 3yr old and watching him on a larger swing set is very difficult. Also when there are several kids running around, I worry about the younger kids. I plan on leaving this in the garage (if it fits) and letting the kids use it in Winter and rainy days.

              My daughter will be 3 this summer, we are concerned she will grow out of this set in 2 years. What are your thoughts on what the maximum age woud be to use this set?
              A shopper on May 15, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: I have 2 grandchildren, ages 2 and 4, and I bought this set for them. They love it. They need supervision because the slide is a good height and the swings can go fairly high. We switched out one backless seat for a toddler bucket seat and that is great. The glider is great fun for them too. I dont expect them to grow out of this set for a few more years, maybe age 7 or so.
              I am interested in getting this for my kids, However I maybe moving in the next two years. I was wondering if anyone had moved theirs and how easy or hard was it to move?
              Jordan J on Jun 18, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: We had ours a year at one location then moved it in our truck to the new house. I kept the fort intact but took the rest apart. wasnt too hard to move at all. however it didnt fit through the new houses fence gate so I literally heaved it over the fence with the help of my husband and it didnt get a scratch. super durable! lol
              Is the slide wavy? I've seen pictures of two different slides of this same product. Also will two people be enough to move the box once it is shipped to the home? Does it all come in one box?
              Melissa E on Jul 16, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: The slide is not wavy. My delivery came in 2 boxes. The delivery truck backed in my driveway and unloaded a pallet with the 2 boxes on it. When we were ready to assemble it we opened the boxes and took the parts out. No moving was necessary.
              Can I change the swing to a baby bucket swing?
              Rosemary O on Jun 13, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: You sure can. That's exactly what I did until my boys grew out of it. Just clips on like the swing would.
              Was assembly very difficult?- dayzee
              Daisy S on Jun 16, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: Difficult is a relative term. It really is a 2 person job for portions of it. The actual assembly is just time consuming. The directions are easy to follow, there are a ton of pieces. The difficult parts are when you need 2 people. One to hold a part up, and another to assemble together. I did it by myself and it took about 6 to 7 hours non stop. 2 people could do in 1/2 that.
              How much weight will the glider hold?
              A shopper on May 7, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: We live in a large development where this glider and playset is getting lots of use. It is built very well and seems to be working out just fine. My grandchild is four, but many other children in the neighborhood are older and larger. We are very pleased with this set!
              We love this playground! Unfortunately it took a day to assemble and we are MOVING,!! Is this something that can be taken apart and reassembled easily? We hate to just leave it and if putting another one together at our new house, why not already have it paid for? It is in great shape and only 2.5 years old. Any suggestions for tear down? Or rebuild?
              Jmburk on Apr 29, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: We just moved this in January (when it was -5 degrees) and we separated the swing set from the climber and it was easy to move. It is not necessary to take everything apart unless you are making a long distance move and space is an issue. We moved 20 minutes away and it wasn't a big deal. If the slide comes loose it is a little challenging to get it back in correctly. The main thing I would suggest is not to misplace the bolts and pins, which is what I did and why I am on the website now.
              i love the way this looks - thinking about it for my daycare. However, i don't think i want the rope ladder on the end - could i put something else there?
              Beth F on Apr 22, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: I just bought this for my 4 year old and 2 year old. They have no troubles using the rope ladder. I love everything about this play center! You could always attach a baby swing or something else in the spot of the ladder? Since there is clips on top, you can easily move things around. I actually put up my own step 2 baby swing in place of one of the other swings for my 2 year old.
              How difficult is this to assemble and what tools will be needed?
              william c on Apr 13, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: We have heard our customers say that it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours to assemble. We created an assembly video to help walk you through the process: http://vig.sellpoints.com/step2/step2/default/STPANY00008.html
              Hello. Can anyone tell me if I am able to order accessory parts for this such as a tire swing? How about chains for the swings? I have read that the ropes on the swings are short and not adjustable. Can anyone comment on this? Thank you!
              Amanda T on Mar 25, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: We purchased this about a year ago. The ropes are a bit short, especially on the ladder (by about 2 inches). Over time they all do expand about an inch with wear. What I did was go to Home Depot (Lowe's, etc) and purchase some clip hooks with 150-200 lb weight (to be overly cautious) and some chain (appx 3")for each connection to lower the swings for my kids, and the chain can be adjusted as needed. With regards to accessories like tire swing, etc. we have purchased a baby swing to exchange in one of the 2 regular swings for our youngest. Purchased a step 2 baby swing at toys r us. Also purchased a rope swing with a flat seat that we have hooked up to the swings as well in exchange for a regular swing. There are options, but you'll probably have to find them as other parts, not necessarily designated accessories.
              We are going to put a border around the set and put down rubber mulch, what dimension of area would be good for the border? 2-3 feet extra? Any suggestions?

              BEST ANSWER: So funny you are asking me this, as we just bought the border to put around it and we have regular mulch, but same thing. We currently have it mulched 3 feet away all except for the slide. We have it extended 5 feet instead of 3 feet to give them more room when they slide down. Hope this helps. This is a great swing set.
              I want to replace the swings with toddler swings. Will I need to replace the existing chain/rope or attach the new swing to the rope already there?

              BEST ANSWER: Hi, we use ours with the Step2 Infant to Toddler Swings. The Top bar has hook mounts and we just attached the swing hooks onto those (so the Infant to Toddler Wings that we bought came with its own rope and hooks; same as the rope and hooks that come with the standard swing seat). So just unhook the seat from the top hook and replace the seat, rope when you attach the other seat's hook.

              Another review said they have a pool attachment for the swing. How do I purchase that? Or can I put any pool at the end of the slide

              Is the seat part of the swing detachable from the rope? Can I remove just the swing seat and use the existing ropes for a new toddler swing?
              Nicole D on May 22, 2015
              BEST ANSWER: No, the seat is attached to the ropes, but most toddler seats come with ropes attached as well. We only hung up one of the green swings and hung up a toddler swing in the other spot.
              we have a small yard so was thinking about getting this product without the glider, but it is only $50 more, so feel I should buy it. Just wondering if I could build the playset with or without the glider. Even just eliminate the swing section and just have the slider?

              BEST ANSWER: No, we do not recommend assembling the Naturally Playful® Adventure Lodge Play Center with Glider with out attaching the glider assembly.
