    Safety Information:

    • The Playcenter is designed to be installed on a level surface by an Adult with an Adult helper. Place in a flat area of your yard to minimize ground preparation
    • Choose a level location for the equipment. This can reduce the likelihood of the play set tipping over and loose-fill surfacing material washing away during heavy rains
    • Place the equipment not less than 6' from any structure or obstruction such as a fence, garage, house, overhanging branches, laundry lines or electrical wires
    • Provide enough room so that the children can use the equipment safely. For example, for structures with multiple play activities, a slide should not exit in front of a swing
    • It is a good idea to place your Playcenter in an area that is convenient for adults to watch children at play
    • Do not build your playset on top of surfacing material
    • Locate bare metal platforms and slides out of direct sunlight to reduce the likelihood of serious burns. A slide that faces north will receive the least direct sunlight
    • Separate active and quiet activities from each other. For example, locate sandboxes away from swings or use a guardrail or barrier to separate the sandbox from the movement of the swings
    • A maximum of 150 lbs per child is recommended for play activities designed for individual use
    • A maximum of 120 lbs per child is recommended for play activities designed for multiple child use

    • 3/8" cordless drill or electric drill

    Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 74reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Might want to buy extra treated 2x2 boards The floor part where children will be standing or walking is weak. Our assembler had to reinforce the floor underneath because the flooring that came with the set is too thin.Manufacturer could take care of this weakness in the Backyard Discovery Monticello Cedar Swing Set. And smaller in size than expected. 12/26/2012
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by You get what you pay for When we laid out all the pieces (and there were A LOT!), there were at least two pieces missing. This should have been a sign to just pack it up and take it back. We proceeded to put it together. After four hours and little progress, we decided that the quality of the product just wasn't what we were looking for. The slide was paper thin; not the normal plastic slide that most swingsets have.I would not recommend this product. The only good thing is that Wal-mart took it back without any problems! 12/20/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fantastic value! I purchased this set as a Christmas gift for my granddaughter. My son and I picked it up at the store. Boxes were as large as advertised but fit in my SUV. We assembled the set over about a week. My son would assemble the monkey bars, or ladder, or rock wall after work, and then we'd work on the larger pieces and the fort on the weekends. Directions are very clear and accurate - reading them through once or twice before you start is advisable! Also, we read where someone suggested sorting parts and hardware ion advance, that too is a great idea. At the end of the day, assembly, though time consuming was a snap as long as you have the right tools! The only difficulty we experienced was as a result of taking a shortcut on the cedar roof by building it on the ground and then hoisting it up. Do as the instructions say! This set is very high quality, easily assembled, and LOVED by my graddaughter. We have since noticed that comparable sets, even by the same manufacturer can cost as much as 2 or 3 times as much at other stores! 12/27/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Worth the price.. Pack patience for assembly This was well worth it! I looked around for a while before settling and this was the best deal for the price. When I finally ordered it, it was on sale for $499. It took a long time to put together, we worked on it on and off for a few days maybe 3 days all together. Take the time to lay out the wood and the screws ans bolts, there are a ton of them. The slide was not pre-drilled which made it difficult to put together. In the end the kids love it. It is solid and there is a lot of play room. (Mine are 11, 6 and 3).So as long as you have the patience to put it together you will definitely get your monies worth. 02/03/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love it! I bought this as a Christmas gift for my two year old son. He was a little small for it but through out the year it has become his favorite past time. He plays on it daily! It is time consuming to put together but it is well worth it. We have had it almost a year now and it's still in good condition. I can tell the color is fading is certain spots, but that could be a result of our harsh Florida weather. Great buy! 09/03/2013
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by The picture is deceiving. Thhe picture of this product is very deceiving. The rock wall is not solid boards, it is like a ladder itself. It is not as sturdy as it looks. The item is OK, but i guess that is what I should have expected from Walmart. The slide is not 8' long. You tell me how you fit an 8' slide in a box that is only 7' 8" and it is not bent. 12/23/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Your kids will love it Your kids will love it but the husband may not as it is not easy to put together and the assembly instructions are inadequate and confusing. However, once you get past all that the set is awesome and a real treat for the little ones. 01/17/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Nice Challenge!! :-) I did build it by myself but 4 hands would have made it a little easier. It wasn't bad i think. 02/08/2012
