The swing is sturdy and requires two to assemble. Some of the holes that locate the rope brackets were drilled in the wrong place, during manufacture, making securing them more difficult than needed. The rope is quite coarse and can cause discomfort to small hands over a longer period of use. We like the quick release fittings that allow the ropes to be detached easily, to keep the ropes and swing out of bad weather. A mechanics socket set is required to assemble it which could be difficult if you have to buy or borrow one. Overall I would recommend the swing based on its sturdy design and 10 years warranty on the wooden beams against rot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahM35 A great swing
Purchased this swing for my 7 & 10 year old who just love it. It looks really good in my garden, being wooden it blends in nicely. My partner put this together in about an hour and he said it was pretty easy, it did require the two of us to lift it into position as it's very heavy. I was a little concerned about there being a slight wobble to it but once concreted in it was really sturdy. My only gripe is that the swings feel and look quite cheap, the ropes are very thin and course and were hurting my kids hands so i wrapped some tape around them for the time being. I am looking at replacing the seats and ropes later on which would make this swing set perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moko Value for money
Worth the money
Could be sturdier; by which I mean that at times it looks as though the woods going to break as it creeks and bends from thejoints/bolts areas but it's not that bad considering the price and the fact that there are twice as expensive ones with probably just the same quality materials for sale.
Could be more thicker/stronger in terms of the wood standings(legs) but let's see what happens in future.
Built for smaller built kids if more than one 9 yr old
it is a good colour in terms of natural blending in to a grass type garden as it might look out of place on concrete paving type of garden but who knows etc.
The kids love it too so good parents award in the post I think!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BigDavie674 Poorly made
I'm a very practical person and can turn my hand to many things so when I buy something that requires self assembly, I expect to be able to follow the instructions and put the thing together. This wasn't the case with this swing as some of the guide holes were in the wrong place so that the legs weren't level and the holes for the bolts to hold the swings were so shallow that it was impossible to attach the nuts rendering the swing unusable. The quickest and easiest option for me was to fix these problems myself but I should not have had to go to the extra expense and time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nicnox30 Great fun
Good sturdy activity set. Children love it. Was able to fit child seat from old metal swing set so 2 year old and 5 year old have a swing each. Swing a little high off the ground some 5 year olds may find it ok but mine a little unsure. However she loves the swing I'm sure she'll grow to clime the ladder more confidently. Product did arrived a week late but asda returned my postage costs of £8.95 for the inconvenience. My husband put it together on his own in around an hour he said it was fairly easy and that's coming from someone who is not generally good at basic DIY.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1979kelly Great garden must have
This Little Tikes swing set has been a great addition to our garden and the kids absolutely love it. I have a 3yr old and a 5 yr old and they are on it all the time. It is great having two swings, saving on arguments and the ladder gives them a change of activity. It is quite sturdy but does require it to be fixed permanently to avoid movement. Some reviews state the holes may not line up. This was true but only in one case other than that it all went together very easily.
My only gripe would be the delivery company, unfortunately.
I selected a standard delivery but it took a week to actually get to me and a few phonecalls in between. I ordered it on a Monday with expected delivery on the Wednesday, as stated on the order but didn't arrive until the following Monday!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by cezzatdog still not certain
received this swing set this morning delivery was spot on. as for the item the wood is mouldy and very badly split in fact there are deep splits in most of the pieces, some of the splits are on the screw holes. don't know yet if this is the norm would like to hear from others who have purchased this set if this is so. only reason i think i will keep it and give it a go is the guarantee that comes with the item. i have said i would not recommend the product because only time will tell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by loopyloo70 nightmare to erect
set up swing day before my daughters bday as this was the only time we could do it to surprise her. had previously checked that all of the items were in the box, which they were. wasnt to know that all of the screw holes were in the wrong place making the building of the product a lot longer as we had to drill our own holes! other than than that once the swing was up it is sturdy and a good swing and my daughter loves it!!!
