Bought for my granddaughter's 1st birthday and she loves it. Yes she can't do the rock climbing part yet, but the product states it's 1 to 4 years age group so I am sure she will grow with the product.
My daughter is 13 months and has been walking since she was 11 months old. She cant climb the rock wall thing to get up to the slide and the slide is way to steep. She practically falls straight down. The swing is to slippery for her to sit up right in. Disappointing.
I bought this for my son who is 2 and it’s to small for him. The age range one to four is way off as it is two too small for a 2 year old not alone a 4 year old. Little tikes should be changing the age on this.
The climber part is fine, it is the swing. The swing only attaches in one point, and it is not very strong. The "screw" that attaches the swing to the climber is plastic, and ours broke in half, rendering the swing part unusable, and there does not seem to be any way to replace it without having to replace the whole structure. Also, we had to place stakes all around the base of the structure to keep it from moving when the swing was in motion. All in all not a great design.
I purchased this set to use with my son and he outgrew both the swing and slide by 17 months. I currently still have it assembled and my son is now 22 months. He does like to climb up and attempt to use the slide but he is simply to big for the slide. He is 34 inches tall and this set simply isn't for him. I would only purchase if you have a small/short toddler.
I want to say the reviews stopped me from by this for my daughters 1st birthday!!! We decided to try it for Christmas because I really though it was cool and she had a playroom now. I thought if the reviews were right we will return it. I started with this because we LOVE it and so does my daughter, she wakes up every am and goes down the slide. If we listened to the reviews we would never had this great product that has taught her hour to climb, swing herself and hours of play time a day! My daughter is now almost 19 month, 33 1/4 inches tall and 29 lbs. It took her about a month the learn how to climb the rock wall. There were a lot of red faces and grunting during this month but she got it and clapped for a week every time she made it up. It took about a week for us to teach her to sit when going down the slide and not walk right off of it. She loves pushing her baby's down it and cars. The swing is the best, she now can get in by herself and waits for us to put the set belt on. She also likes pushing her Minnie in it and other baby's!! Just within the last week or so she start using the little tunnel. She likes hiding her toys under there and the dogs toys! We play with this everyday at least for 30 mins or so. I can't wait to get it outside this spring! My daughter fits great on the swing and slide. One tip make sure the have socks on !!
I purchased this for my grandson for him to use when he comes to our house. He can not use it because at only 17 months (and not big for his age) his feet touch the ground when on the swing. The tree section is so flimsy I have to sit or stand next to the playset when he would get on the swing and hold the tree. The tree keeps bending or bowing out to the side like it's going to break off. This playset is ages 12 months to 3 years. At 17 months old my grandson can't use it. I'm very disappointed as I've always purchased Little Tikes and this just doesn't stand up to their quality. I think they need to redo the product of remove it from their line.
