Main Pros Outlined:

  • The 3 swing stations can accommodate any standard size swing seat or toddler seat to allow for different configurations

  • Includes some great accessories such as the telescope, tic tac toe panel and the steering wheel
  • Much shorter assembly time than the much larger sets – can be done in 6 to 12 hours depending on your skill level and amount of help you have.

Main Cons Outlined:

  • Lacks an air glider or a passenger swing where 2 kids can swing at the same time
  • Only has one upper deck area where other models under the Gorilla brand can have 2 decks
  • Doesn’t have a clatter bridge or a built in picnic table
  • Only one slide is available to play on where other models under the brand have 2 slides available
  • There is no radical tube slide that is available on the more expensive models.
  • Slide could be longer as it is smaller than it looks.
  • Assembly is hard work and requires a lot of time, attention to detail and ideally a team of helpers.
  • Lots of tools are required to get the job done – otherwise it will take a lot longer to complete.
  • Upper deck dimensions are fairly small which limits available play activities up on top.
  • Will need to be regularly maintained and treated over time from one season to the next

  1. We have been undecided which model of Gorilla Playsets to go with but this has been a great help I must say. Another playset to help the kids grow physically where no mobile game could beat!!! A good old Nantucket playset consisting of everything a child would love a slide and a small house to play in, the kids would have lots of fun trying out this great playset but the price ranging is quite high and might be an hiccup so need to set enough time aside for that well in advance.  Hope the suppliers could do parents a favour and dial down the price a bit for the kids betterment but overall this is a great playset to have around the house it’s very good for the children. Your review is great  likewise the faq are really useful to know.  Great review and certainly has made us consider this one over the rest we have seen elsewhere.

    • You are welcome and thanks so much for taking the time to visit and express your feedback to the wider community about this Playset. It is greatly appreciated. Regards, Ryan
