- Includes an assembly manual and standard tools are needed
- Warranty duration is 180 days
- The cost can vary from $220 to $300 depending on local discount activities
Main Pros Outlined:
- Made in the USA so can support your own community
- Can be promoted from time to time to be on sale for less than $250
- The 2 kid rocket rider and 2 kid air glider provide great additions for extra fun and enjoyment
- Much quicker to assemble than larger wooden swing sets and should only take between 2 to 5 hours
- Having the chains with the vinyl-covered coating protects your kids finger from finger pinching.
- The 6 foot wave slide in included in the package and is more suited to younger toddlers
- Perfect for larger families, local party events and it can occupy a total of 10 children at the same time
- Separate toddler swings can be added also to replace either of the existing swings
- The swing heights are adjustable which is ideal for smaller toddlers who need to swing lower
- It is also ASTM qualified for both safety and quality which is important for your own child’s well being
- Overall we found it quite sturdy, solid and robust when cemented in and provides great entertainment for the kids outdoors
- Significantly lower cost and price when we compare it to some of the larger wooden swing sets on sale.
- Not the best Swing set out there but will do the job if you have less than $250 level to spend
Main Cons Outlined:
- Price tends to be one of the most expensive under the Flexible Flyer brand
- Slide could be both higher and longer as it is quite small for older kids - more suited for toddlers only
- Assembling the air glider takes a lot more time, hard work and planning, tons of pieces to map out
- Much shorter warranty of 180 days available where wooden sets normally have 5 years on wood and 12 months on all other parts.
- Surface rust is not covered under the warranty provided so you need to add a rust prevention maintenance programme or rust protection solutions
- Limited to a max weight allowance per child of 81 Ibs and anchors need to be bought separately
- There is a risk of heavier kids damaging or breaking the frame which won’t be covered by the warranty
- Both the see saw and the slide could be a lot more sturdier as we felt they were quite flimsy and cheaply made.
- Anchors are needed and needs to be cemented in solidly to avoid rocking with high swinging
- Reports of missing parts which delays assembly - more care and attention should be taken to ensure 100% of the correct parts are always included.
- Too small for 12 year olds as they would get bored easily – more suited for kids up to 8 or 9 in our opinion
