My 4-yr-old is enjoying this swingset. We don't expect it to last more than a couple of years, but it will definitely go a long way in getting us through the "I love to swing!" phase. The glider and see-saw are very popular among neighbor kids, even in our area where high-end wooden playsets are common.

We have sandy soil here so the swing does have some give (even with the anchors) when the kids swing hard. They have quickly learned when they need to slow down.

The slide is nearly too small for our 4-yr-old, but our 1-yr-old will definitely get some mileage out of it.

One of the black plastic clips on the glider broke the first afternoon, but Flexible Flyer sent us a new one in about a week.

My husband, my dad, and my brother assembled this swingset (and installed anchors) in about 2.5 hours.

The only thing that made this product worth the excessive amount of time it took to assemble was the enjoyment that our son got out of it.
To start the set has extremely complicated directions that fold out like a map versus opening like a booklet. Second, the directions are incredibly unclear...you're better off guessing and looking at the picture. Third, I read a review previously that said this company must have incredibly poor quality control and I should have listened, please trust me when I say that holes do not line up properly, the slide is not flush with the ground and for what ever reason this company sees fit to use 3 different types of bolts...why not uniformity? So all in all, I would say that what seems like a good deal is actually a time consuming frustration. My husband and I are incredibly handy and can normally put anything together fairly easily even when others have said that assembly is difficult. I say go to a national chain pick out your swing set and pay the extra to have them deliver and put together for you. This is so not worth the headache.

Comments about Flexible Flyer Backyard Flyer 6-Station Metal Swing Set:

This would probably be a very nice swing set, especially for the price, however it is very difficult to assemble and the parts aren't labeled so you have to figure out what goes where. I was also missing parts that were supposed to be in the bags of tools for some of the pieces of the set.

Comments about Flexible Flyer Backyard Flyer 6-Station Metal Swing Set:

It took me over 6 hours to assemble. Because of incomplete directions, I had several false starts. I have a lot of experience putting things together, and can only imagine how impossible this would be for someone less experienced to do!

Comments about Flexible Flyer Backyard Flyer 6-Station Metal Swing Set:

Best advice is to read ahead in the instructions. For example the top bar has a top and a bottom, this is "never" mentioned in the instructions until you discover can't hang the swings at the end. The trapeze bar is NOT the one pictured. It is the plastic green one with handles. We ordered for the actual BAR not the plastic handles. Metal holes to put screws through are not punched out all the way. We had to bend the holes ourselves in almost all the pieces to get the screws to fit.

Service and delivery comments:

This product can be found at other locations for alot less money. The customer service people were friendly, although they would not cancel my order even before it had shipped and would not price match the other store.

      Great, Affordable Swing Set for Kids!

        Comments about Flexible Flyer Backyard Flyer 6-Station Metal Swing Set:

        I got this swing set for my two toddlers, ages 2 and 3. They played on it all summer and never tired of it! My 2-year-old is just big enough to sit on a swing by herself, and I've spent hours pushing two little kids on swings and catching them as they come down the slide!

        I have to say, I don't know what other reviewers are talking about with assembly and parts issues. While the directions could use more detail, I haven't put together a product in the past 10 years that has had as much information in the directions as I'd like! All assembly instructions were correct and my husband and I were able to understand them. We also didn't have any missing parts, and thought that the parts were labeled EXCEPTIONALLY well!

        Here are three things that I really love about this swing set:
        The chains for the swings are "safety-coated" with a rubber/plastic tube that keeps little hands from getting pinched.

        The slide has tall edges (bumpers) that will keep kids from falling off the side.

        The screws that secure the components to the top of the swing set frame have rubber caps to prevent them from rusting.

        I also think this swing set is a great value. Other kids up to 11 years old have had fun playing on it, and it's a great piece of equipments!

        Finally, I also used the Swing Set Ground Anchor Kit found on this site to secure the swing set safely into the ground. It works like a charm and is an easy-to-install safety measure.

        assembly would have been much easier if all correct peices were supplied. thankfully we had a hardware store nearby. as far as shipping on a timely manner we were very pleased. I believe you need to work on quality control. with todays economy every sale should be handled efficiently and correctly.

            Comments about Flexible Flyer Backyard Flyer 6-Station Metal Swing Set:

            Having grown up with a beloved Flexible flyer sled, I have been very disappointed by the "Fun Fantastic" swing set. It is poorly made, the instructions are difficult to follow, there were many, many parts missing, some of the parts supplied (anchors) did not function properly, the set is rated in the owners manual to hold 945 but in my estimation would barely hold 150 lbs., [...].All in all, a terrible disappointment.
