We bought this to encourage one of our own favorite activates…climbing. It has been fun watching our soon to be 4 year old climb the summit. Just today he tackled learning how to climb down out of the platform. The look on his face was worth it. The platform is a cool retreat for him to get away from his little brother. Item was received a week after ordering and took a few hours to put together. Having an extra person could have made it go by faster. Day two of having it and I feel it was still a good purchase…I know my son loves it!

This is a great product, but beware of a few things! First, the trucking company had mangled and tore up the flimsy box it was shipped in. I had some parts missing and had to buy from the hardware store! Took a good day to put together!

But my autistic/ADD boy loves to climb on it! So in the long run, it is worth it!

Just recommend insurance on shipping, JUST IN CASE!

    Comments about Step2 Skyward Summit:

    Perfect birthday presents for twin grandsons on their 4th Birthday. It was a big hit among all their friends at their party. My husband had no problem in putting this together but it did take 1-1/2 to 2 hours to complete it.
    I feel this will be with grandsons for several years - they will probably outgrow it first.

        Comments about Step2 Skyward Summit:

        This unit is very well built. I assembled it in 3 hours by myself. If you have building or prior assembly skills it can be done by one person. Use the online assembly video, it was very helpful. The old adage of 'a picture is worth a thousand words' is true. I prepared the are of the yard with weed barrio and bark chunks to prevent having weed and grass problems plus give the kids an extra cushion. I used permanent marker and put 'Skull and crossbones' on the flag and named it 'Skull Rock' One piece of advice, I took 20 minutes and sorted out the various sets of bolts, washers, nuts and bagged them by set numbers and bagged the sets by number. Really helped out at the assembly.

        Comments about Step2 Skyward Summit:

        I purchased this product for my toddlers. The suggested age is 4-8 years old. My son and daughter are younger than that, but I could not keep my son from climbing on the furniture. I decided to find something that is designed for climbing. After the hours of frustrating assembly, this product is doing what I wanted it to do. My son no longer climbs on everything all over the furniture in the house.

        I would not purchase this item as a Christmas gift unless you pre-assemble before Christmas day or plan on spending half of Christmas day assembling this wonderful giant rock.

        Appeals to my older kids. Vaguely natural in design. Made in the USA. I am not a "plastic person" but this looks like it is a lot of fun.
        Judi B on May 14, 2015
        Read reviews. Also saw it in a backyard and loved the natural color look of it. It's for my 2 grandsons!
        Kathy R on May 9, 2015
        All my son wants to do is climb. I wanted something big enough and challenging enough that he could enjoy it for years but still a manageable size for our smaller backyard.

        Amy A on Jan 9, 2015
        I love the built, it looks so nice having your kids climb up and down catching fun at home, it's makes them to think and calculate before taking any step hence they might fall, it's educative in a nut shell
        Augusta Ovhokio J on Dec 26, 2014

        Our friends have this same setup and they love it as do all the kids that play together at their house. Of all the toys and options in their yard this is the one that gets the most attention. It also serves as a great reading nook for their daughter and will certainly prove to be one for out daughter too!

        Can children climb on this barefooted, or do the climbing rocks hurt bare feet?
        A shopper on Mar 11, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: I think that may depend in how sensitive their feet are. My kids climb on it barefoot all the time. The yellow handles have a smooth rounded edge and are pretty hand and foot friendly. Even the rope net can be climbed barefoot as the rope is about 3/4 inch in diameter. My kids find the texture of the rope unpleasant so they don't chose to climb the net without shoes.
        In general I think it has been an excellent buy. I'm handy in general, but it was easy to follow the directions and assemble.
        Does anybody know if you can put it in a "Playroom"? It is too hot where we live and I think it would get more use inside. It says there are anchors for the ground, so is it OK to just have it on carpet? If I watch kids closely.

        Thank You,
        A shopper on Apr 26, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: We have this outside in our back yard. My boys love it!!! It is rather big and very tall. We don't have it anchored in the ground so I think it will be ok on carpet as long as your room is big enough for it!! Hope I helped!
        Is a mat necessary to put the skyward summit on?
        A shopper on Apr 14, 2013
        BEST ANSWER: For safety from a fall it would be a good idea to have something especially if you plan on having it on a hard surface. I had a childcare business so my husband and I built a very large sandbox, 10' X 12', assembled the skyward summit inside before adding the sand. The children love it!
        My son is 6 and my daughter is 5. We are wanting something other than a swing set. I am wondering if our kids will play on this for years to come or are they at the end of the age bracket? I notice alot of the reviews are about kids younger than mine.
        A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't say for years to come at the ages they are already. This is a very unique backyard playset that has been a big hit at my grandson's birthday party but I bought it when he was 3 heading for 4. Our problem with it is that Virginia Beach is full of spiders and he doesn't like the webs that accumulate so won't use it as much as I'd hoped! I would say that if your kids are on the smaller side you would get some good use and could probably recoup your investment in selling it since these products hold up beautifully.
        I am going to pick up the SS will I be able to fit it in my honda pilot?
        Pam W on Oct 19, 2013
        BEST ANSWER: I picked my SS up with a Nissan Armada. I had to use the second and third row seating so I would recommend picking up without children.
        What are the 4 holes above the cargo net designed for? Is there a bar available to put there?
        N V on Jun 6, 2013
        BEST ANSWER: We have the Skyward Summit (installed a couple years ago). There is nothing that came with it that occupies those four holes. I'm not sure why they are there.
        We will be placing this in an outdoor play area over concrete. What are the current playground guidelines on providing a safe play surface in case of falls, i.e. how DEEP does the rubber mulch need to be?

        TIA.
        Mike9999 on Mar 23, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: Do not install the Skyward Summit or surfacing material over concrete, asphalt, packed earth, grass, carpet or any other hard surface. It is recommended that a shock absorbing material should extend a minimum of 6.5 ft. in all directions from the perimeter. For additional details about installation, please visit http://images.step2.com/media/pdfs/782200_assembly.pdf
        Is it possible to fit additional climbing holds onto the Skyward Summit?
        Gary Grant on Jan 8, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: Hi Gary,

        We purchased the Skyward Summit a few years ago and have been extremely pleased with it. Our children love to climb and play on, in, and around it. Since the climbing wall is recessed in the areas where the climbing holds are installed it would be difficult and most likely unstable to attach additional holds.
        I need to replace the netting portion of the climber. Do you sell just that?
        Streeta F on Jul 6, 2015
        BEST ANSWER: You can purchase these through our Customer Service Department. Please call toll free 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you with this request.
        When will this be back in stock? We need it asap!
        A shopper on Apr 2, 2015
        BEST ANSWER: The Skyward Summit will be available again shortly. Please click on the "Notify Me" button on the right-hand side of the page to be notified when this item is back in stock.
