I spent months reading hundreds of reviews, researching, and going to different stores to see the swingsets actually assembled. The Backyard Discovery sets have very thin, cheap wood that was even broken sitting in front of the store!! When we received the swingset, the inside of the boxes were stamped Big Backyard, which makes extremely high end swingsets, so I guess this is a branch of that company. This swingset is extremely sturdy, and big enough for my 6 year old and 3 year old to play on together. I won't even talk about putting it together, it will be a lot of work no matter what set you choose- we worked from 9 am to 7 pm with 1 break and finished it. I love the details, and it can hold my husband standing in the fort, with me and both girls swinging without moving. I would definitely recommend this set as an affordable alternative, anything more for little kids is reallu just overkill. Some advice-- make sure your husband doesn't try to be macho and just skim the instructions-- read and look at them carefully! We did get almost to the end and realize we had a fort wall attached backwards!! Overall, great purchase, very happy!
