    We purchased this swing set in June 2012. We wanted to get my son, who was 20 months old at the time, some outdoor toys for the summer. I did EXTENSIVE research online for plastic play toys for toddlers and eventually I narrowed it down to the little tykes adventure gym and this set. This set was a little cheaper and it had all of the same features as the little tykes one.
    My husband and my dad put it together in about an hour, not hard, but you will need more than one person. You do need to drill some of the plastic holes a bit more but it really is no big deal. I was a little concerned that my son would be too small to climb the ladder but we showed him how to a few times and he was fine. There are handles on the side of the play house to help little ones pull themselves up to the platform. The set is sturdy, and durable. It is easy to clean. The slide actually goes pretty fast. We were worried that it would be less fun for our kids since it was a smaller slide, but it is fine. We did add two baby swings 9( have an infant too) and they hooked on easily. I do wish that these smaller sets came with at least one baby swing. Like I said, I researched EVERY plastic and some metal sets out there and this was what we bought and I am very happy with our purchase. My son plays on it every time we go out in the yard and that is what I hoped would happen!
    I will note that this is a Toddler set. I would not recommend this to kids who are over about 7 years old. When our kids are older we will upgrade to a wooden set but for now this is perfect.

    I read many reviews that said the same thing and I was hoping this wouldn't happen to us - but we finally received the swing-set after three weeks of waiting, and it was missing directions, all screws and bolts and any tools it comes with to assemble. Right now it is in pieces on our lawn. Very disappointing and hard to explain to a 2 year old! I know it's a mistake and it does not affect the quality of the set itself, I suppose it's more of a customer-service issue. Otherwise looks ok - definitely smaller in person than what I was expecting from the picture. Step2 - take your customers' comments into consideration and pay more attention to what you are and are not sending us!!

    Comments about Step2 Play Up Gym Set™:

    I have purchased multiple step 2 products in the past. While each has its quirks when it comes to installation, this swing set is by far the most infuriating of them all. My wife and I took an entire day off of work to put this swing set together. We nearly accomplished the task in the day, thanks to the vague, mostly illustrated and poorly laid out instructions. The goal eluded us once we got to the final steps, attaching the swing cross bar to the little house/tower. Due entirely to the vague instructions, a single bracket that was installed at around step 20, visually correct, came back to haunt us at around step 40 or 50. It turns out that this crucial bracket is a little off center. Going by the picture, there was no way to determine that the bracket was installed slightly off center. It simply looks correctly installed. Because the bracket is off center, the bolt or pin that connects the swing bar to the house/tower will not go in all of the way. As a result, I cannot properly setup the swing bar. In order to correct this off center bracket, I have to nearly take apart the entire house/tower structure, by back tracking to the step where it was installed. Fortunately, it was a rainy weekend and my child couldn't go out and play on the partially constructed set anyway. However, I'm not happy with the installation process and definitely not happy with the provided instructions. Honestly, I think that it would be an overall good and enjoyable swing set for my child, when it is put together.

    For the price this is the worst play place. I will have to get my grandson a new play place because he is 3 and already to tall for the play house with the slide. Very disappointed. Should have gotten a wood play place.

      Comments about Step2 Play Up Gym Set™:

      This is the perfect swing set for younger children! It's surprisingly smaller in size while still offering fun activity for my kids. It took under an hour for myself and husband to put together. Once you size pieces to the chart provided its easy to assemble. I love that the deck area is covered so it stays clean and dry. My 2yr old is in love with it!! This is great for younger kids! Low enough to ground so they won't get hurt but still exciting enough to peak interest!

      Directions not that clear mostly pictures that are too enlarged to tell. All bags should be opened and laid out in order before starting. Took one person 4 hrs. Hope the ropes on swings stretch over time as they are too short for 3 yr. old to reach the seat by themselves. The steering wheel is a little tight to turn. The ladder & slide is great for my 2 yr. old climber.

        Comments about Step2 Play Up Gym Set™:

        As a Step2 Ambassador, we received this swing set at no cost to facilitate a review.

        This swing set was pretty easy to assemble, although it did take about 2 hours or so. It could be done with one person, but if you have 2 it will be even easier.

        I love that it is sturdy plastic and I don't have to worry about splinters or rust.

        My kids could swing for hours on this. They love it and have so much fun on this set. I also love that it combines a little clubhouse and the slide too. My son pretends it is his pirate ship and loves to play in there.

        It is a smaller-sized swing set, great for toddlers (with the addition of a baby swing), preschoolers, and children under age 6 (maybe a little older if you have petite kids like mine).

        If you're looking for a swing set that can stand up to the weather and a beating from your kids, this one is perfect!
