I ordered this for my 3 year old son, initially I thought is was very well made. Unfortunately when left out on the swing in the garden for just under 2 weeks i noticed that it had a large split where the rope goes through the wooden bar on both sides. I brought it inside to send back to Amazon as faulty, after six days of it being inside i noticed that the cracks had healed (I was shocked by this as they were not small cracks). I can only assume that as we are having such extreme weather, one min hot and then cold and very wet thet the wood did not agree with this. I have decided to keep the Trapeze swing but shall treat the wood myself as it does not come treated. I would recommend this product although I would also suggest that you preserve it before putting it into the garden. This product really should come already treated as it is meant for the garden so this is disappointing.
