Main Cons Outlined:

  • It is limited to a child weight of 100 Ibs each
  • 12 year olds will get tired of it more easily and should be realistically for a maximum 8 or 9 years old as it is smaller than it looks
  • Slide is also far too short for 12 year olds
  • Assembly can be a bit tricky and you need to follow the instructions very carefully – more play stations means more work
  • No shoe loop swing is included or a nest swing.
  • The plastic washers, caps and bolts could be better and stronger as they tend to be a somewhat flimsy
  • There are no anchors included which will be an added expense to you and you need to cement them in to prevent rocking with high swinging
  • Missing parts have been reported which delays assembly and is extremely annoying
  • Some minor reports and problems also of the Swing seat durability over time where breakages have occurred – best to have one on standby
  • More care and attention is needed to ensure all the correct parts are 100% packed correctly – be prepared to visit your local hardware store
  • Steps on the slide are too far apart for toddlers – more steps should be included with narrower steps

  1. This looks like such a great idea for toddlers! I have two small grandchildren who would love this and I will definitely give it a go, it looks like it is good value and affordable at Walmart also. We go to the park often, but the equipment is always too big for them. And of course, they still want to climb it, lol. This looks like a much safer size, and in the privacy of our own yard. Thanks for outlining your helpful review. Thanks, Suzanne

    • Many thanks to you also Suzanne for taking the time to leave your feedback and best wishes to you and your grandchildren with their new Sportspower Live Oak Metal Swing set!

  2. We were looking for  a fairly cheap (but reliable) metal swing for the kids and we heard about the Sportspower Liveoak from friends of ours so we decided to do some research of our own. Thank you very much from the great review as we know everything there is to know about it and we must say that is highly comprehensive and simple to read along especially the pros and cons. I think after reading this review for the sport power live oak metal swing set that we will go ahead with it and keep an eye out for the cons that have been highlighted here. I like the fact that it supports a home delivery also and I will be sharing this review with my friends who have young children. Good work and thanks for the detailed review

    • You are very welcome – we are thrilled that you found our review useful and best of luck to you and your family with it in the years ahead.

  3. Wow..! This is a great review of the Live Oak from Sportspower as my wife and I have been undecided. This would certainly be a great attraction for our children and interestingly the price tags are so friendly and lower than I thought it would be. It makes it worthwhile in giving it a trial instead of going for a really expensive swing that takes ages to assemble . Many thanks for taking time to do an in depth review on sportpower – our kids are sure to have a fab time (we hope)
