"Provides good exercise"
"We loved playing on the trapeze but the loops on the bar that the chain attach to are made of a metal that rusts. After hanging outdoors for one week, the metal was rusting. We've returned the item and do not recommend anyone purchase this since it will not last outdoors."
"I was sent a ship wheel but not the one pitured. The one I recieved is smaller and looks completety different , I am very disappointed. I was to be a gift to my son on Thursday. The wheel I got is cheaper on other sights by $10. I feel as if I might have gotten scammed. I will be returning it ASAP."
"The children really enjoy their new swing set. They've spent many hours already playing on it.
There was a lot of predrilling which will make the wood last longer and not split. It was a building experience that my husband and our son did together. We're very pleased with our purchase and do recommend it to others."
"We bought two of these for our twins. We hung them under our deck at our new house. Our boys love these swings! The anti-pinch coating is very nice, the swing is very durable, and the green color is nice. The swing bottom is stiff on arrival but breaks in nicely and forms to the child. Overall, this is a great swing for the money! We have had it over two months now and it still looks brand new. My twins just love it!
"Since I installed it my kids have been playing with it almost every day and love it. I just wish I got two because they fight over it! I have a 3yr old and a 5yr old. I put this in my garage out of the weather and have a light mat underneath.
It seems very well constructed. Be careful your kids don't put their feet inside of the handles as they will likely get stuck there and eventually the child will have a bad fall. Luckily I was present when it happened and they know not to do that.
The handles are plastic and not metal as I thought. They seem to be tough. Not sure how they'd handle the outdoors though.
I wish I got this thing a long time ago."
"I purchased this swing in addition to a step2 swingset to accommodate for my 1 year old. He loves the bucket swings. I have used both the bucket design swing like this one and the plastic seat swings like little tikes makes and I much prefer this one. My son hits the his head on the plastic seat swing while swinging and therefore it takes away from the joy of the motion.
This swing came completely assembled and ready to hang. Its seems to be really durable, the same quality you come across in public parks."
"The Best Days of summer are watching your grand babies play all day out side. To hear their giggles, laughter, eyes lit up as if they were on in their own little world. The Blue Chateau Swing set gives joy and happiness to every child that comes in contact with it. The adults even come back to their childhood. Reliving the free days of summer, swinging high in the air, trying to reach to sky. Sliding down the slide as fast as you can to try and catch up with the young one you are playing with. Then when a child goes up into the top, they feel as if they are on the top of the world. Oh what a great feeling. To be taller and higher then anyone else. so yo see This is a great gift for any child. They can all enjoy it from small toddler to , well yes even old grandma's like myself. It is priced at a great value. You get a lot of different things all rolled up in one for one low cost. A slide, swings, monkey bar, a look pout fort, and it is all made of very sturdy materials, along with some of the best hardware. Step by step instructions. And most of all but not least, we had the most fun puttings this together as a family, My husband, daughter, son-in-law, 2 year old grandson, and myself. It was two long days of enjoyment, for all of us."
"After a lot of research my wife and I concluded this play set offered the most bang for the buck. The free delivery was great as this item came in 4 very large boxes that would have been tough to get home even get in a pick up truck. All the wooden parts were accounted for and undamaged. We were missing 2 bolts and a few washers but otherwise we had everything we needed. The biggest key to making this project a success is to inventory and label all the parts. It took us about 2 hours to unpack everything and label it all. While the instructions are fairly long I found them reasonably easy to follow, take a few minutes and skim through them ahead of time. The construction took me and a buddy about 9 hours to completely assemble minus the chimney.
The finished project is amazing. It looks just like the picture on the web site and is incredibly sturdy. The swing arm and all the structural supports are made of a very heavy weight wood. The other pieces are not as heavy but still very sturdy and have a nice look and smooth to the touch, no worries about splinters. I have a rising 3 year old that loves the slide, rock wall and the fort. The whole play set blends nicely into the landscape of our backyard.
"This is a great set and well worth the money! As my husband and I are not handy at all, we were very nervous about taking on this project.
What we didn't want was a set that we've seen so often - a great deal but wobbly and unsafe.
We researched different sets from many different stores and finally decided on this model based on the other posted reviews, pictures on the web site, and price. Keep in mind that the price includes shipping. We found that we would have been spending just as much on a seemingly lesser-quality set from another major retailer once shipping was added to their on-line price.
It did end up taking two full days for my husband and father-in-law. We also recommend organizing your parts as they are not labelled. We did have some damaged pieces of wood - a piece had a large split in it and some of the pieces for the picnic bench were severely crowned. We also recommend putting a sealer over the stained pieces to help maintain the color. The factory finish is pretty, but is light and will undoubtedly fade after a year.
Overall, we are very pleased with this product and have no regrets with this purchase!"
