Sportspower Rosemead Metal Swing and Slide Set Review

Sportspower Outdoor Rosemead Metal Swing & Slide Set & Saucer Shade

Main Features to Note:

  • Includes the patented flying saucer swing with reinforced inner webbing and holds up to 2 kids safely inside the saucer
  • Has been crafted with heavy-duty 2-inch powder-coated steel tubes for more durability and longevity
  • There are two blow-molded swings with safe vinyl chain covers to protect little fingers.
  • There is the large and durable 6-foot 6-inches slide and is a one-piece blow-molded slide for easier assembly
  • There is also the large 2-person blow-molded Roman glider constructed with an extra thick hanger and handles for better grip
  • The saucer and glider use a 4-point chain hanger design for better stability compared to common 2-point chain systems
  • Includes also the shade attachment which covers kids in the saucer on hot and sunny days
  • Allows as many as 7 kids with a maximum 100 lbs each - 700 lbs total
  • Meets or exceeds all ASTM safety standards and the size is 177 by 104 by 72.8 inches
  • Price when last seen on sale at Walmart was in the $190 to $290 region which of course can be double checked below.

Main Pros Outlined:

  • Kids can both relax and swing in the patented 45 inch flying saucer swing with reinforced inner webbing
  • Saucer can hold 2 kids at once so they can chat and relax or swing in company
  • A large unique 2 seat Roman glider is included with east grip handles to hold onto.
  • Has high quality heavy-duty 2-inch steel tubes for the frame which makes it heavier and stronger
  • Can entertain 7 kids at once so ideal for parties and play dates each with 100 Ibs per child capacity
  • Has a total weight capacity of 700Ibs with the stronger 2 inch heavy duty tubes
  • Includes the standard 2 blow molded seats and the slide is 78 inches long (6 foot and 6 inches)
  • All chains are vinyl covered to protect little hands
  • Has the powder-coated finish on the frame which is standard nowadays and very important
  • Toddler swings can be added where needed but requires extra work on your behalf.
  • Assembly is a lot quicker than wood and can take 2 to 5 hours only
  • Has the 4 point chain hanger for better stability on the roman glider and saucer nest swing
  • Has a free shade attachment for the nest swing for added comfort and protection on sunny days
  • One of the main attractions of course is the awesome nest swing which the kids will thoroughly enjoy.
  • Exceeds or meets all ASTM safety standards and overall good value for the amount of money you have to pay and at times can be available for less than $200.

Main Cons Outlined

  • There is no mini trampoline or see saw included which many other swing sets have
  • No shoe loop or trapeze swing either but the nest saucer swing makes up for this
  • You will need to buy an anchor set separately which is an added expense
  • Needs to be cemented in the ground to avoid rocking with high swinging
  • Changing to a toddler swing is more difficult than originally thought and changing the swing heights is not easy to do due to the bolt system.
  • Additional tools/bolts should be on standby for assembly as it is trickier than you think
  • There has been reports of missing parts so having spare bolts / nuts etc will be beneficial
  • More attention is needed to ensure 100% of the correct parts are included at all times
  • Issues have been reported with the slide holes not lining up correctly which delays assembly
  • The shade on the saucer is a bit flimsy and may not last very long – maybe a season or 2
  • Assembling the slide should also be easier and quicker instead of the unnecessary hassle
  • Steps on the ladder need to be closer with more steps included as they are too far apart
  • Plastic covers for the screws/bolts should be of better quality and packaging in some cases has been poor.
  • Far too many people have experienced missing parts – more care and attention is definitely needed with the packing department
