What was the original price? Is this deal better or that 20% off everything at Costco.ca deal from 2 months back better?

The $999.97 one was $1699.99 regular price, last sale down to $1299.99 ($400 off). I’ve seen it in store at clearance $1199.97 may be cheaper in store now

The $699.97 was last $999.97 I don’t know what before but probably $1299.99-1499.99

Oh and the $1399.97 one was $1999.99 regular price

For those that have these or similar, how do you care for it in the winter? Cover with a tarp, dismantle or do nothing?

Unfortunately not everyone have access to a local park. We live in the country and our school is about 10 minutes away by car and that's the only park available close by. And it's not always convenient to drive there.

We bought a set like 8 years ago when my son turned 2 and when he was a real monkey.... we bought it at walmart (discovery brand) for $500 and free shipping. It was one of the best investments we made at that time. It's still up to this day except the green tarp that covers the top that eventually ripped due to the sun/heat even if we took it off every winter.

Anyway we never restainned it. We just took care of it by making sure the screws were thight etc. And I'm sure we could resell it for like $150 as is now.

Just to say yes a park is free... but the convenient of being able to stay home and enjoy the outdoors is worth it. Just make sure to get it at a young age because they learn quick and will have lots of fun.

Never did anything to ours in the winter. We are in NB and winters are unpredictable. There's a year where we had over 4 feet of snow around it. And at some point I used the snow blower to go around it so my son could use it lol. But for most winters it's been buried in the snow.

I pretty much back onto a park and I still bought the kids a playset. When they're in the backyard at least I can do some yardwork, BBQ, cook in the kitchen, have access to a toilet, drink beer, etc. Also don't have to worry about the park being busy or dirty or other people's kids. Definitely convenient to have both options.

I literally did a spit take this year when I saw the price of the larger one in store. Seems to go up $100 every year. Astonished Face

I remember thinking $999 was pricey back when my son was little, lol.

We have a Kidkraft one.

We just take the swings down and bring them inside, otherwise everything sits outside.

That said, the durability on the wood is very questionable. We are having wood split on the set (as in, split all the way through not just surface cracks which are also plenty). As well, as our oldest uses the swings (who is half the weight limit) you can see the entire set flex and creak now. Everything is tight, it's just not able to handle someone swinging who is half the weight allowed and who can swing themselves (so they go high). I cannot imagine someone who is at the upper end of the weight range using it. If you have the time and even a bit of DIY skills, buying a hardware set and building out of 2x6's / 2x4's is a better choice. The sets I have seen at friends houses are a decade or more old, yet have so much more strength. I would really recommend the DIY part with a hardware kit. It might be a little more, but it will be solid and last a lot longer. I have doubts our set will last for all our kids.

Anyone notice if there were price decreases (more so than the website) in store today?

Nothing! You’d never dismantle it as it takes like fifteen hours to put together lol. I’ve never heard of these being covered.
