    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for little climbers 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and fun for the little ones! The pros: Very sturdy and works well with several kids playing at one time. The connection points were accurate and fit together cleanly.This has provided a great deal of fun for our little ones and friends. Assembly was fairly easy but for the nets.The cons: Assembly was a breeze until we got to the nets which took the longest. Not a deal breaker for future purchases but it is very helpful to have two people do the assembly and to assemble on a flat surface. Also, there are lots of nooks and crannies on this piece and you have to be careful of insects (wasps in our case) building nests and stinging little ones.I would definitely recommend this to someone else and anticipate many years of use as it is very durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!!! We got this a couple of days ago. It only took my husband and his brother 2 hours to assemble it. The instructions were very easy to follow. The bottom is open so we put an outdoor carpet to fit underneath. My younger children are 5, 3, and 15 month's. They all love it! My 5 year old climbs all over it. My three year old can get to the middle platform and the baby loves the cave. They can't seem to get enough of it. I see alot of fun with this for many years!!!! My husband and I also climed to the top and we weren't worried at all. It is very sturdy. Great climber!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique I purchased this for my 2 1/2 year old grandson who loves to climb and to slide. I wanted something different - also something that would appeal to his older (9 year old) cousins. I thought it would take him awhile to master the climbing, but he succeeded in makng it to the top within the first hour of use. He loves climbing on it and hiding in the "cave". The older boys are having fun with it as well. Assembly was not as difficult as expected - except for attaching the upper part of the cargo nets. I expect this will get alot of use in the next 6 or 7 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! We chose this over the typical swing play structure. This fits perfectly in our yard where the kids go out and pretend it's their fort. love the moveable flag. the clever sturdy net in the "cave" to support children after the climb is great too. my 2 yr old has a bit of trouble climbing all over it - but it doesn't stop him from trying! great exercise and imaginative play.easy to assemble, pictures don't always represent the tools (screws) given. it's light weight to carry (need 2 people) and instructions are clear.i think the perfect age group would be 2-5yr old.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problems with assembly We purchased this as a gift for our grandson & began putting it together the day before his birthday party. The next morning we were still at it. Extra time was necessary because bolts were missing & necessitated 2 trips to the hardware store. Also, several holes didn't line up & we had to drill our own. We still haven't been able to stretch the climbing ropes enough to fit into the 2 slots on each side, nor was anyone able who came to his birthday party. At this point the climbing ropes are useless since we can only attach them on one side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely pleased with Skyward Summit This has proven to be a delightful backyard toy for our 3 grandchildren ages 4-10. It's sturdy enough to hold all 3 at the same time; plenty of opportunities to let their imaginations run wild as they go from fending off dragons, to taking their binoculars and turning the mountain into a pirate ship. Lots of physical exercise is also a bonus. Assembly was somewhat more difficult than I anticipated. Definitely needs two adults.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My boys are 4 and 11 and love it. They play together, alone, and with friends. I'm a little nervous when they're at the top, but never seem to have any problems. I would not recommend it for anyone under 4. I put this together by myself, with a little help from my four year old. It took a long time, but the directions were very easy to follow. I do think it was overpriced, but my boys love it so I guess it was worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Unique Climbing Toy The skyward summit is a breath of fresh air among climbing toys. It's all about climbing and my kids never get tired of that. This climber is challenging enough for my 8 year old and easy enough for my 4 and 2 year old to enjoy also. My 2 year old cannot climb up past the rope ladders yet, but he likes crawling in and out of the cave. My only complaint is that it is time consuming to put together, but it was well worth the effort. Before purchasing it should be considered that young children should be supervised on this climber since it is so tall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy I was very happy with the quality of the Skyward Summit. I purchased this item for my very active and furniture climbing 3 year old son. He is able to climb to the summit while improving his strength and agility. Not only is he able to enjoy it but my 5 and 10 year olds do as well. My husband assembled this item by himself in a couple of hours. The only thing that I have concerns about is the fact that it gets really hot, we have this placeed outside, and I will need to hose down the Summit before the kids can play on it during the summer months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth it! 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top of the World I bought this for my home daycare. Better used for a smaller group(maybe no more than 5 kids).The younger kids like to make it to the top.Can really only have one child on a side at a time. If 2 kids are on one side trying to climb, hands and fingers tend to get stepped on. All kids really like climbing this mountain. They also need to take turns sitting in the middle. Some tend to stand in the middle and try to climb through the hole in the top.It did take a couple of hours to put together, sometimes the picture of the bolt didn't match the actual bolt. It is not hard to put together but time consumming. Really need 2 people to put together, makes it alot easier.Any kid would love to have this. It is something unique to have in your backyard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, love it, love it! I love this thing. So much better than the usual boring swing set that everyone has. My 5 year-old son likes to climb up to the middle opening/chamber with his toys and play. It's like his own little cave hideaway. I only wish that the middle chamber held more than one child; 80lbs isn't much. Once a kid gets past 4 or 5 he can't be in there with any of his friends (though the space is large enough to accomodate two children). Putting it together, however, is no fun. Thankfully, our set was not missing any of the hardware but it was a good 4 hour struggle with both my husband and I working on it. However, it was a small price to pay for a great looking and unique outdoor play experience. Why don't more companies come up with cool stuff like this?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Wait [...] When the product finally arrived I couldn't wait for my husband to get home and help assemble it, so I did it myself, pregnant with two small children "helping". My son is technically too young for this product, but since he seems to think that he is a monkey and has to climb on everything, I got it for him anyways. He has already mastered climbing all over it- it is amazing watching his perseverance and little brain trying to figuring it out. Overall, I am quite pleased with my purchase. Hopefully it survives the summer heat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this- would buy it again I purchased this item for an early childhood playground at our school. When it was put together we all agreed it was a little scary-looking because the outside climbing area seemed so tall! We spent the first two weeks standing next to the summit to teach climbing skills and that has paid off. The children love this and I love the open-ended play I see! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it gets so hot in the full sun (we have plenty!). Please note this has only been in use three weeks so I can't attest to it's longevity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have, More Fun than Anticipated! My son absolutely loves this item. We have had it for two months now, and he is always asking to play on it. We have had all of the neighborhood children over, and each and every one of them loves it. It is amazing how much they enjoy it. It keeps them busy, and will entertain for hours. The age group of children that have enjoyed it is from age 2-10. Though 2 is a little young. My son is currently 4, and it is the perfect age group for him. We anticipate having years of fun out of it. It was worth every penny and more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for older children We had been looking at this far a few months and decided to get it for Christmas.[...], but as I had seen in other reviews we were missing some parts. We contacted step 2 and they very quickly got the parts shipped despite the holidays. So great customer service. It did take about 3 hours to assemble but it is very sturdy and my 4 year old daughter loves it. I would definitely save this for kids 4 and up as Step 2 recommends. Definitely worth the money and time to put together. I am sure we will enjoy this for many years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter LOVES it! We ordered this for my daughter's sixth birthday. I was really surprised at how quickly we received it. I had seen it on other sights for a lower price [...] the Step 2 website was the best deal. I am about 5' 3" and 115 pounds and I put this together myself. It did take me about three hours and it would be a lot easier if you had two people doing it so someone could help hold the pieces (they are pretty big). My daughter loves it! She likes to sit on the platform in the middle and color. She is all over it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WoW! Most Awesome Activity Toy! This is an amazing backyard outdoor activity! I am home-bound so I can't go anywhere fun with my granddaughter. So she can't wait to come over to my house and climb her little heart out! My husband put the Skyward Summit together in about 3 1/2 hours, alone without help. It isn't difficult, you just need to spend about 30 minutes organizing the screws, bolts and parts into plastic bags first. This will make building the Summit easier. Before you build, plan the space where it will go. We live in Florida so put the Summit in a partially shady area so the plastic wouldn't absorb too much heat from direct sunlight. I haven't had to clean the Summit yet, but I think using a spray bottle with a gentle soapy mixture to spray on the Summit and then rinse off with a hose will do the trick!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great equipment for little monkeys We really do like our Skyward Summit. It's great exercise for little people; our 3 year old loves it! I assembled it all by myself and it took roughly three hours. The only con is that the hardware all comes in a few bags, all mixed together and not labeled. Then again, I'm probably just spoiled by [...] directions and hardware. :) I'm sure it's easier with two people. But now that it's together, we love it! My son has happily spent about an hour a day on it for the last two weeks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for any back yard This is great product for any backyard! It was a Santa gift for Christmas. The boys LOVE it (ages 11,9,7 & 2) They have spent hours play on it. They have even named it 'Mount Everest'.The directions were simple to understand. We built it in our garage then moved it to the back yard. We should have just built in the backyard. The only hard part was moving it from the garage to the back yard, thur the back yard gate.It is a beast to lift over your head over a fence!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The kids love it! The boys (5 &2) love playing on this, but assembly was not fun at all. Step 2 really could have done a better job sorting out the bolts & washers into seperate bags & labeling them. That was very time consuming trying to figure out & find the right size washers, etc. There were several times that the directions were unclear & we had to go back & redo steps. It took my husband & I 3 hrs to put this toy together & we are usually very efficient at putting together this kind of stuff. For the amount of money that this rock wall cost, Step 2 could have done a better job sorting out the parts. I was very disappointed in that aspect! Luckily the kids love it so that makes me happy! I would recommend this toy, but be prepared to have several hrs to assemble & have a helper, Good luck!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will be used for years to come! So happy with this product that was primarily purchsed for my 4.5year old. We were looking for something other than a swingset for our small backyard, and this was exactly what we wanted.My 4.5year old has played on this everyday since we bought it 5 weeks ago in rain or shine, and that to me is a statement on the play value. Even my 15 month old loves to climb underneath it.It is time consuming to set up though, and the rope climbers are very difficult to attach, we actually only attached one side so our children would be able to take toys underneath the structure to play with like a playhouse. 2 people will definitely make the assembly go quicker, i did it myself and it took about 3.5 hours.Every child that has been over to our house since we purchased it has played on this climber, and loved it. I highly recommend it !!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I put this together on my own. Had a couple problems with the thread of some of the screws, but overall it was pretty easy. Don't be overwhelmed by all the pieces, ladies. You can do it! My son watched from the window as the assembly took place, but he had to come and try it out before I could even get all the way finished. He was bursting with excitement! I'm looking forward to having the whole neighborhood over to play!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth Every cent!!! The instructions should be re-evaluated. There is more than one area where the instructions tell you to use the wrong screws. They should label the screws and washers more clearly and separately package each size.Other than that, it was really easy to assemble, it took about an hour. It is a great play place for my kids.My kids don't usually LIKE to go outside a lot, but since we got this, they don't want to come INSIDE!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Indoor Toy too! There are only two complaints I have about the product. [...]The other is that there is a one-person limit on the platform - which with twins, is about impossible to referee. Other than that, the size, sturdiness and overall look is fantastic. My girls play everything from castle princess to drive-through window operator. We keep it indoors so that on hot days they have something to climb on. It's a great toy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good climber [...] My 3 kids are crazy climbers so we set it up in the livingroom. Overall the base is the size of a full bed and the upper level is about crib matteress size and made of mesh. It took me and my husband 4 hours to completely assemble everything. You definately need two people to assemble parts unless you have crazy long arms to hold a bolt and turn a nut on the other side of the wall. The directions were very clear and I loved that there were full size photos of the hardware. The only down side for me is that I wish one long wall was all yellow hand holds for older kids. As it is both long walls have cargo net, cut outs, and only 2 yellow hand holds. The kids LOVE their new mountain and the see through mesh platform is a real bonus for them. My husband loved that he can comfortably sit under the mountain and not bump his head. Even the cats were in on the action!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rock climing playground This product is wonderful. I have a 2 1/2 year old, 4 year old and 11year old. The only cons that I have is that you need more then one person to put it together. The other con is that when the kids try to get down they are not always able to find the foot pegs for there feet. I think there should be some sort of ladder as a extra way of getting down. other then that the kids love it and it is made very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun-days I searched long and hard for play houses, nice ones were expensive. So after comparing for weeks, I saw this item. I thought this would be neat and something my daughter 21 months, can grow into, verse out of..for the $. She can use this for many years to come and step 2 site had the best price of anywhere else [...]Other sites it totalled as much as $600. I recommend this for all kids that love to climb.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pirates Galore I am the mother of a three year old girl whom absolutely loves this item. She loves playing capturing the flag. We were able to put this item together in four hours. We did sort the pieces before we started which made a world of difference. In addition to this, we watched the "assembly" video offered on the step 2 website. This made the assembly super simple. I would highly recommend this item.
