The Independence is a full-featured set at a great price! This design has been a best sellers over time. It has an upper play deck with colorful canopy. To get up there the kids can use the standard step ladder or the challenging rock wall ladder. The 8' speedy slide safely zips them back down to the yard. Under the fort there is a snack table that has its own canopy cover plus room for a sand box! Out on the swing beam there are two belt swings plus a two-person glider for hours of swinging fun. The kids will love it!

    Over-all good product. Did have 1 section where the drilled holes were off line. Also, some of the bolts

    gift for grandchildren

     from Metairie, LA– Verified Buyer

    love, love the swing set. The only complaint I have is that it needs a coat of clear sealer which I didn't know about when I purchased it. Great buy for the money. They love it.

    Great Deal

     from Trumann, AR– Verified Buyer

    Bought this for my 3 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it! It only took my husband 16 hours to put together by himself - which is a lot easier than we were expecting. Unfortunately, we were hit by a huge windstorm (90 mph) a week later and it got torn up a bit, but we were able to order replacement parts at a low rate and get it back together quickly. One thing we learned from the manufacturer - make sure you seal this product. It's stained, but not sealed, so for the best life, make sure to seal it.

    The slide is the hardest part to put together - that will take two people. If you have a dog who will want to lay under the tower, I recommend putting an extra board up across the opening to the picnic table - ours tried to squeeze through and damaged it a little (but he's a rottie, so it doesn't take much for him to break stuff).

    This unit is very sturdy (to have survived a huge storm like ours with so little damage says a lot!) and the layout is great for a single child or multiple kids. I think it will last in our family for years to come.

    Nice Swing Set

     from Seneca, SC– Verified Buyer

    The swing set came in two longer, not very thick boxes (I was expecting a pallet or something!). My husband and FIL went through the item checklist and verified everything was there. Took them 1.5 days to complete, but it came together nicely and the kids love it.
