Assembly:
  • 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.

i need to know if they are going to fit in my mini van....

  • A. There's two boxes, at least 8 feet long because that's how long the slide is. We used a trailer to haul it, but if you had all the seats out of your van and you may need to strap down the hatch but you could do it. They're pretty slender otherwise, just long.

  • A. I took all the pieces out of the boxes in the parking lot and put them in my Toyota Sequoia with the 3rd row seats and one mid row seat folded down and was barely able to closed the rear hatch due to the length of some of the pieces. If you are able fold your seats you should be able to fit it all in your van this way. Plus, you can leave the boxes for walmart to deal with. Just be sure and tear of the end flaps with the labels and barcodes for warranty or return purposes. I have got ours about half together and found a couple of boards missing.

Bought this for my daughters birthday. Took my husband and a friend about 9 hours to put up. I highly recommend making sure all parts are there when you start. We did have to go to the hardware store for a few bolts. Be prepared to drill a lot of holes because some of the boards didn't come predrilled. The ankers that come with it keep the swing set in place even with 4 kids swinging at once. My husband can even stand on the platform with no bowing and creaking. It's a great set for the price!!!

This swing set is the perfect swing set for a lower budget if you "want it all". All my 5 year old daughter wanted was monkey bars and this was the best set anywhere for the money. I wish I had an extra few hundred to spend so I could have got a slightly bigger set, but for our budget this was perfect. She is very pleased with the buy. The wood was either really hard or really soft so we had to re-drill some of the pilot holes for the huge screws because the drill couldn't get them to go in very well. Some of the smaller wood screws went through the wood easily, it was kind of hit or miss, so just be careful. I didn't feel completely comfortable putting all my weight #170# on the structure, although it held me fine, but it's fine for children. We bought a trapeze bar separately to replace one of the swings so my daughter had more activities to do. We had to use a trailer to get it home from site to store because the boxes are very long, about 8 feet, as that's the length of the slide. it came in two boxes, they came to the store one day apart but before the estimated time of arrival. So I was pleased with that. The only thing I did wrong was put the clubhouse door on backwards. So I haven't got the slide on yet #see pic# because the door swings out and won't open with the slide on it. So once I make the door swing inward I'll be able to add that. I don't know if I really like that it swings inward, but oh well. My daughter was very excited and loves playing on it. The directions don't say to have a wrench but you will need one to tighten the bolts. a ratcheting one is best as there's some small spots to turn inside. We had to use the provided allen wrenches to tighten all the bolts really good, which was a pain but came in handy. I basically put the whole thing together myself as my husband was helping watch the baby #I'm the handyman in our home!#. He helped me hold large pieces, and my mom came over and helped one day when he was at work. I finished it in about 12 hours the first day with a few small breaks for meals, and about 5 hours the next day. If I had an adult helper continuously we would have had it done the first day, no doubt! But since I did most single handedly it did take longer. Make sure you have some sealant as it is not pre-sealed, only stained. If I could go back I would have done that first before assembling the thing, but it rained every day except the two days I was able to put it together, so I just had to get it up to beat the weather or else it would have never been assembled.

My wife and I put this together in about a day. The directions are very easy to read, but make sure you have the right tools which makes the job much easier. I don't get home until around 6:30 so we started putting some of it together on a Thursday night, and some more on Friday night. Saturday morning we took the assembled monkey bar, swing piece and the base we had put together in our garage the previous couple of nights. We started working outside around 1 pm and were finished around 5 or 6 (but we did take some minor breaks in between to look after our 3 kids). Overall the product is very nice, it was easy to put together, and the price was considerably less than similar swingsets we have looked at. Looking forward to having our kids enjoy this for many years.

We bought this for our 2 year old daughter to use now and grow into. It took my husband and dad 2 full days to complete setup. A lot longer than we were expecting, but completely worth it! They put stone pavers underneath the wood for more stability and easy mow/trim around. My dad put in a custom wood floor in the playhouse portion because we do not intend to use it as a sandbox. Our daughter has so much fun on it already and could not wait to start swinging! We look forward to many years of fun with this swing set!

The Sorna swing set has amble activities for 5 grandkids. Set up was smooth and easy after laying out all parts. It took 3 morning of assembling to complete. The only minor flaw that I noticed was that the door (under the slide) does not open fully but enough for the kids to get in and out of. It looks good in the backyard too.

I read the reviews of many wooden swing sets to help make this set our choice. Def need a pickup truck for pick up. Inventory took a little over an hour, everything was there. The only thing missing from required tools list is a 1/2 inch box-end / open-end wrench and a 1/2 inch socket with ratchet. Needed them often. The power drill was a big help but with the wood being soft, take it easy so you don't break the planks. My wife and I started set up at 10 am and with very little breaks we were finished around 7 pm. My daughter finished putting up the swings and glider. It was 8:20 once everything (tools) was put away. Instructions could be a little more informative. Pictures were in black and white and some you really needed to look at 4 or 5 times. All in all, time for set-up, instructions, ease to put up, etc...this is a nice swing for the price. Not something I'd want to do every weekend, but well worth it to watch kids play. We called the number that was in the packet for a company that would set up swing for you. They wanted $475 plus mileage. We are happy with the set so far.

Our four-year old daughter loves nothing more than being pushed on a swing, but outgrew the old metal swingset. We were looking for something to offer her challenges and fun for the next few years; Sonora was perfect, and a great value (yes we bought at Walmart). Though the cedar is soft, the set is strong, taking the force of her swinging 'as high as she can go.' The sand box takes about 200# of play sand to fill 4" deep; but she will play for hours in the sandbox, up in the tower, climbing the rock wall, and sliding down (or climbing up) the slide. We have had the swingset about a month, and, rain or shine, she is in a swing, the tower or the sandbox nearly every day when I get home from work #yes, mom is there to watch her#. She would rather play in 'her Sonora' than come in to eat... only baths or swimming are more fun. It took about 30 minutes to pick a location that was pretty flat for the whole footprint. Assembly was easy, though. And I do keep the torx drive handy to check screws - yes, they have stayed tight so far. It has exceeded all expectations; I strongly recommend to parents/grandparents of active children to about age 10.

Our kids love it!! It did take a full 8-10 hours to put together but we read the previous reviews and made sure to take time to sort and make sure all pieces were there before we started assembly which made it so much easier. Some of the diagrams and pictures were a little hard to understand but we figured it out pretty easily. The size of it is great; all of the neighborhood kids can play on it at the same time. We did have a cracked board that came out of the box that way, but we called the company and they shipped it right out, we had it in less than a week. It wasn't a major piece so the kids were still able to play on it while waiting for it to arrive. The set is very sturdy and has several different activities to keep them busy. Very happy with our choice and look forward to many years of fun for our little ones.

This swing set met all my expectations which are very high. It did take three men with POWER tools 6 hours to put together. It was not difficult to put together as the manual was good and all the pieces were included. It was just time consuming. I do think if my husband and I had attempted to put this together by ourselves, it would have taken a very very long time and I'd probably would be recieving roses, too. There was only one tool that was included in this kit that was used. The tool that's used for the anchors in the ground - good tool! I would highly recommend purchasing and putting together - it is worth the time. The Grands have had the best time playing on this swing set. Of course, this Grand has had the best time watching her Grands play on it, too. I think this is going to be one of the best investments we have made in a long time.

My husband and I have FINALLY purchased our first house together and along with this vision of the American Dream, was also having a wooden playground for our son (who is 3). It was very important that this was also at the house at the time we moved into this home. So I investigated the several different layouts of swing sets, types, and of course pricing. I highly considered Walmart because they were moderately priced. We didn't want anything to cheap where we would have to replace in a few years, but also couldn't afford anything too fancy! We chose the Sonora because it had a very simple layout and was attractive looking. Even though it is a swing set, it still needed to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and as yard art! My brother and I spent a solid 7 hours on a Saturday putting together this massive amount of pieces. (me being a girl# and my brother and father-in-law spent another 3 hours on Sunday. The instruction booklet was step by step to the "T". The instructions were very specific but also very time consuming. You must be somewhat mechanically inclined to be able to understand the wording and the pictures. It is best if you open the box and lay out everything by grouping your letters together. They say an adult and a helper, but a third person is really needed to pre-layout the steps. That person gets the wood and the recommended hardware ready for each step and then the other two people build. It goes much faster!!!! Out of the thousands of pieces I was only missing two parts. I called the 800 number, registered my purchase, and the parts were shipped immediately without any hassles or delays. Customer service was very knowledgeable and attentive. The only two issues we really had was putting the slide together and make sure you remember to have the door push in. Also make sure that you have a drill-there are literally hundreds of bolts, screws, etc. #Your hands will appreciate it much). The swing set is very sturdy and well built. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with this product, the price, the quality, and the look which made our little boy very happy and money left over to purchase additional accessories.
