Wood not strong enough creaks not sure how long before cracks appear???? when checking the materials ie bolts screws etc, some were missing or substituted for alternatives making the job even harder. i will have to purchase additional bolts for the roof section!!!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
My two children; aged 51/2 and 22 months have enjoyed hours of play already. This was a very good purchase eliminating me from having to take them to the local park all the time. I would hope this purchase will last another fie years.
Bad points:
Due to the age of my youngest adult supervision is required but I was very aware of that when I made the purchase. A decent size garden/area is really required to accomodate the purpose and to be able to benefit from all it's features.

Michelle, Bedworth

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
For the price it's got everything a child could want. I have a 18mth old and a 6yr old and they both get to enjoy it. I just wish it had a baby swing attachment as well as the older child swing
Bad points:
The sandpit isn't really a sandpit until we put a bottom on it and it could ideally be a little deeper on the sides to keep the sand in. My boys are very tall for their ages so realistically it could do with being just a tiny bit talle.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fabulous play system! We have 2 boys who are full of energy and this climbing frame is ideal. Also, having 2 swings which are exactly the same avoids arguments! We bought it at the end of september and despite the rain they have played on it nearly every day!
Instructions were clear and were easy to follow. Finish of the wood itself is good and safe. It looks great and blends into the garden well, whilst not taking up too much of the garden either.
Bad points:
Most timbers were visibly treated with preservative, but with a couple of parts - eg rock wall & decking - it was not clear whether these had been treated - they may have a translucent preservative, while the other parts were reddish in colour & obviously treated - the instructions did not mention which parts had been trated or whether additional treatment is necessary.
The washers, nuts & bolts are grouped into bags randomly - they do not necessarily go together, just because they are in the same bags! You actually have to open all bags and match them to the instructions before you start - make a big space! This could be the reason why some reviews state they had pieces missing - the instuctions should be a little clearer.
