I was a little nervous after I read the reviews but this was a GREAT purchase now that all the parks are closed due to social distancing. My husband put this together in about an hour (with three toddlers climbing all over him while he did it). Very sturdy very well made. Definitely recommended, I have twins (3y) and a son (4y) and this keeps them occupied for hours.
Oh one other thing to note another reviewer said that theirs was not lining up right when they tried to put it together, this happened to us too but it wasn’t a defect and we were able to get everything lined up with a little adjustment.
