Rated 2 out of 5 by Charles07v from Hard to assemble - starting to rust I've had this set up for about a month now. It has both pros and cons. Pros: The kids love it. They play on the swings, the slide, and use the kitchen underneath. Most of it seems to be very durable, so I think it will last a long time. Cons: Parts of it are already starting to rust. The swing chains are losing their paint, and it took way too long to assemble (even with the instructions and videos I found online). Several of the screws came mis-threaded, and so I didn't have enough of them to finish. The instructions were not clear about how to assemble the curvy slide, and so I got 80% finished with it and then had to basically start over.

Rated 3 out of 5 by steve from Kids love it. But tough to assemble This was the third playset I've ever assembled. Most of it was typical. EXCEPT for the tube slide. It was an absolute nightmare. Took two of us 11 hours to assemble everything except the tube slide. Took 8 hours to assemble the tubeslide alone. Holes are difficult to line up, particularly since many of the pieces are slightly "sprung" during the shipping process. On the plus side it seems pretty well made and the kids really do love it. My only concern is the roof section is only held on with 4 toenailed screws. Seems like a good wind will likely rip it right off, so I'll probably have to add some strapping to it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bells76 from Disaster to assemble Wife bought on sale so the price was alright for what it is. One thing I can assure you is that the engineer of this play set never ever had to put these tubes together. This part is an absolute disaster. 2 days on the tubes alone and I still Dont have it done. Getting holes to match up is impossible. I have cussed this thing for 2 straight days Everything Else went along as expected on assembly without too much trouble. There are tons of pieces to keep up with but I guess that goes with the territory. Other reviewer was correct, the top need more than 4 small screws to keep it attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve from Great Product at a Great Price I purchased this set during the Black Friday sale through Walmart and think it is a great value.Everything was "as expected" as far as assembly. You have to remember this is a HUGE play set that is supposed to last for years and years. I am a carpenter by trade and still found it to be a challenge to put together.....That being said, the instructions were clear, Yes I was missing parts and KidKraft was great at helping me figure out what I needed and got it to me ASAP, Yes I was missing parts too but KidKraft again was great to work with and gave me multiple options as far as what I could do to get the parts. For a set that was on a super sale and shipped to my house for free I cannot complain about the VERY few minor issues that arose. I timed the build and it took 12 hours to assemble the "Fort" portion with about and additional 4 hours to assemble the curve slide. It is difficult and yes the parts are a tight fit but it is built with tight tolerances so it will last. Take your time, plan ahead and expect to spend a good portion of 2-3 days assembling and you wont be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Saddad from Looks pretty good but hasn't held up We bought this as a Christmas gift. The twist slide was a little hard to assemble but we were able to get it done between my wife and I. It looked good when it was a assembled but now 6 months later (and we didn't use it will that heavily during the winter months) the house construction racks severely and there are checks in all the swing timbers. My oldest is 6 and weighs 55 lbs. at most. It's disappointing because now I feel like I have to tell her she can't swing on it anymore. Is recommend looking for something sturdier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by APB65 from Time consuming but easy directions After seeing all the bad reviews I was sceptical about putting this together. The worst part for me was leveling the ground for the set to sit on. Also the shipping which isn't KidKraft's fault was a hassle but they sent the slide I was missing without making a big deal about it. I'm not sure how reliable it is yet I just got it set up. I'm going to guess the bad reviews are people that might not have ever put anything together. The directions were straight forward and say exactly what you need at the bottom. I did 95% of this by myself. I had help connecting the walls and the beam for the swings. I could have done this myself too but it was easier with a second person. Says three people for the roof? Just grab it and climb up a ladder and put it on top, get in the fort and adjust. I had one broken piece that was fixed with wood glue. I'd make sure you have allen wrench type bits and 7/16th sockets or drivers. I did the tube slide by myself in a few hours. Use one or two zip ties when connecting the pieces to hold them in place if you don't have help until you get a few bolts in. Make sure you read the directions about which way they bolts and nuts go. Also the bottom part of the slide its hard to get two of the bolts and nuts on. I put duct tape on my wrench so the nut didn't keep falling out. You can't get your fingers in the slot very well.

I ordered the Castlewood model from Walmart. 4 out of the 5 boxes were delivered. Fed Ex can’t find Box 5 of 5. Would I be able to buy this box directly from you? It's the long yellow slide and any other pieces that are in that box
How ironic!!!! Apparently FedEx lost my son's #5 box as well and Walmart will not do anything about it even when FedEx filed a claim!
