Top Positive Review
The product is fun once it has been assembled but assembly is not easy. The front and back slide assemblies do not fit together properly. I finally forced them together and managed to get 7 of 8 screws into it. The picture only instructions are somewhat lacking.
Top Critical Review
Radio Flyer is a great company, but this is not the best product. I was initially very excited about it because my kids (1-year-old and 4-year-old) are going crazy at home during the pandemic. However, I found numerous design flaws.
1) I expected it to be bigger. The description says it is good for kids up to 5 years old. But when my son sits on top of the slide, his feet touch the bottom of it. It looks very funny.
2) My 12-months-old baby likes to crawl under the slide, but she bangs her head on metal bars every time, the height is just too small. Which makes me wonder who is supposed to fit in there? A cat?
3) The fabric doesn’t stay rolled up if you use the given velcro. It did not work since the very first day. The velcro is not strong enough. So I have to tuck the fabric under the plastic door on top.
4) I feel like it is overpriced for what it is, a glorified slide. I do not mind spending money on quality toys, but this is not that much entertainment for the money.
On the bright side, it is easy to put together and folds compact. The colors are bright and my kids keep coming to it every day, trying to make it work.
