The slide is nice because it is very tall and even our 4 year old has fun on it. Our two year old loves it. The tent is a nice feature and the kids like to hide in it and play. So, as far as slides go, this is very nice and the kids have fun. However, as a parent, it makes me nervous. It seems a little on the flimsy side and when our 4-year old climbs to the top I find myself cringing because I can see the entire thing sway and it wouldn't take much for her to topple it. It is held together by snap-fit pieces that you screw into eachother. However, the screws are small and short and I have no confidence that this thing won't collapse one day. Also, I am a very handy person and good with tools and building things, and the assembly of this was on the difficult side. The slide itself was easy enough, but the tent was frustrating to assemble. The directions are very poor and the pictures so small it is hard to see what they are asking you to do.

Bottom Line: Good slide for younger, skinnier kids. If your kid is 2 or 3 and on the lighter side, this is an excellent slide. For kids over 3 or who weigh 40 or more pounds, you will cringe every time they climb the later and the thing sways like it is going to collapse. I really wish it we not quite so flimsy.

We bought this slide for our son on his 2nd birthday. As other reviewers have stated -- assembling the tent is a pain. Also, the long pole that goes along the bottom and connects the slide to the ladder was broken and we had to get a replacement from Step2. Their customer service was excellent, though. :)

The thing I dislike most about this slide is that darn pole going along the bottom of the tent. It is about an inch thick and runs the whole length of the tent floor. This makes playing in the tent less comfortable because you always have to maneuver around the pole so you don't sit on it. My boys wanted to put a sleeping bag in there and "camp" -- but there is no way you could lay down comfortably without putting some pillows or cushions to protect you from the pole!

Another word of caution -- we originally assembled the slide inside with the intention of keeping it indoors. We came to our senses the next day when we realized that if the slide is indoors, our toddler will climb it ALL DAY. This means that we would have to be there to catch him ALL DAY since he was brand new to the whole slide concept. So -- outside it went. Or so we thought. The wide base on the back of the slide would not fit through our sliding glass doors. :/ We had to take the back end apart in order to get it outside.

Overall, we like the slide... but if I had it to do over again, I think I would've gone with the plain version. Or better yet -- the one that folds up for easy storage. I bet that one can fit through a doorway without having to be taken apart!

We purchased this slide for our two boys as a birthday gift. The idea is really great its supposed to be a slide and playhouse in one, multipurpose, double duty and space saving if you will. However the concept was not carried out well and as other reviewers have mentioned it is a pain to put together but even with it completely put together there are not enough screws to hold the playhouse tent up underneath the slide. There are areas where the tent sags and there are no grommets for screws to hold it up. Not sure how something like this could be overlooked but it is. Not only does this make the tent difficult to play in it makes the unit more prone to falling and tearing because it is not supported properly to begin with. As for the stability of the slide that another reviewer mentioned, my slide is stable it does not move or appear to be wobbly and we use it indoors so we didn't even stake it to the ground as the product indicated. However I would not recommend this product due to poor engineering and concept execution. The product is good quality as far as materials and colors etc, but it doesn't come together so its a no-go for me. This is the first product I have ever had something negative to say but I think it merits a review to warn other potential buyers. Especially because this item is so big it cannot be easily returned. So unless it is free I wouldn't waste time or money on it. Sorry Step2 this was a miss.

I got this slide for my 21 month old son. He LOVES it. He drags in his basket of blocks to play with in the hideout underneath. And he could slide for hours. It's a decent sized slide for sure. I chose this in part because it is so big he can use it for years to come. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase. The only quips I have are as follows: It took over an hour for two people to put together. The screw holes weren't started just indented, so each screw (and there are lots) had to be hammered in a couple times before you could actually start turning it into the hole. The tent doesn't detach without taking out all these screws. Not sure why you'd want to take the tent off anyway, but just know it must be unscrewed to do so. The bar across the bottom is annoying, but understandably necessary for stability. Honestly I don't think my kid could care less about the bar though. I'm glad I read reviews ahead of time and built the slide in his room instead of trying to move it elsewhere after the fact. It doesn't fit through doorways without taking it apart. I'm not sure why they couldn't have put a hinge where the slide meets the ladder and another on the bottom stability bar, but that would have made the design ingenious. It is sort of wobbly if used on a hard flat surface (like hardwood or concrete). It is designed to be staked to the ground (huge rebar stakes are included), so I assume if it were outside in the grass it wouldn't wobble. It's still stable and safe, just doesn't sit perfectly flat on a flat surface. The slide itself seems a tiny bit steep to me, but my son, even though he's under the suggested age limit by 3 months, seems to do just fine on it... even slides down head first (under supervision, of course) with no difficulty. After all is said and done I'd buy it again and again.Read more ›
