Rated 3 out of 5 by jroof13 wood scratches up Overall it is a nice swing set. It did take 2 full grown men about 8 hours to put together, but I am pretty sure there was a lot of talking going on. The slide was the hardest part to put together. The wood on the stairs has already started to scratch up and we just put it up on Sunday. But then again you get what you pay for. Overall we are happy with the purchase, we may upgrade at a later date but for 1- 4 year old, it works just fine. 05/06/2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by bg242 You Get What You Pay For! Horrible product. Was missing pieces when delivered. Had to wait for extra pieces. Then when put together it is not sturdy at all. The boards flex when my children are swinging I feel like it is going to just fall apart on them at any moment. Would not recommend! 09/16/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nerias27 Great swing set for younger kids I am pleased with my purchase, and my kids love it. The Prescott was a good value. I wanted wood and it was worth the extra money. Took me all day one day (with one helper) to put it together; manual was good for the most part, but it could've been easier to read and been more specific as far as step-by-step instructions. Only a few holes were inaccurately pre-drilled, and all the necessary hardware was there. In fact, there were lots of extra pieces...but better that way than vice versa. It's also held up well through a couple Missouri storms the last few weeks. Best of all, no screws or bolts stripped during assembly, which is key. 07/09/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by amsinstl Glad I bought it I have a 2 1/2 year old son who loves playing on swingsets in the park. Before I decided on this model I did a lot research and read a lot of reviews. I wanted to get a playset that would last for awhile and was well made. Price was also a determining factor. Other wooden playsets I researched in the same price range had less favorable reviews so I decided on this model.It did take a day and a half to set this up. I took the suggestion of other reviewers and sorted all the parts by phase the night before, putting the hardware in clearly marked ziplock bags. This took about an hour but was a huge help when we started. It took about 7 hours the first day for my dad and I (then later my brother and a friend came over) to get everything in place minus the slide and securing the fort. Some of the holes in the fort needed to be re-drilled, and we ran out of daylight, so my dad and I finished securing the fort and slide the next day (a total of about 2 hours). Including set up time, it took at total of 10 hours from start to finish.I would suggest not putting the slide together first, as the instruction book suggests. This was a somewhat daunting task (I left it to my brother and his friend) and probably the more difficult part to put together. If my dad and I had assembled this first, I think we would have been frustrated and it would have set the tone for the rest of the installation. Read the instructions carefully in addition to looking at the pictures. There were two times that we had to take something apart because we had done it incorrectly; if I had taken a second look at the instructions and picture, it would have saved us some time.I think this is a sturdy set; I haven't put in the anchors yet, and I plan to concrete them. I also plan to follow the instructions about sealing the playset at least once a year to protect the wood. Surprisingly, the slide stays cool to the touch, even in the summer heat, in direct sunlight. This is a lot better than some playground slides, which often retain the heat. It has been incrediblely hot out, so my son hasn't been able to play on this as much as he would like, but he is so proud of it and keeps talking about "my swingset."I am pleased with this purchase and would recommend to others. 06/29/2012
