This holiday season I’ve joined with 25+ kid bloggers to bring you some honest reviews on some awesome wish list items! We are also offering a CASH giveaway at the end of this post! This is an international giveaway. The $125 will be award via PayPal only.
We bought the Step 2 Skyward Summit this past summer and I’d thought I would review it now for those of you in warmer climates or heading towards a warmer season during the holiday season. We bought this backyard equipment from Home Depot and had it delivered. But I am including an Amazon affiliate link to the Step 2 Skyward Summit for your convenience.
The Step 2 Skyward Summit was delivered in a large box in five large pieces plus two cargo nets, climbing grips floor net, nuts, bolts and anchors. Because of our rural location there was a delay in the delivery as the big semi truck couldn’t make it down our long and winding dirt road and another pick-up truck was needed to make the delivery. I only mention this as it is something to take into consideration, but it wasn’t a huge problem or an additional cost to us.
The Step 2 Skyward Summit is NOT something you can put together by yourself. Believe me, I tried. Holding the sides to bolt them together is a two person job. And attaching the cargo nets definitely takes some muscle. But it is doable and shouldn’t take too long to accomplish with two adults working together.
The base of the Step 2 Skyward Summit is about three feet by five feet, with the height at about 7 feet. It definitely needs a good amount of space especially for the soft landing area of sand or mulch.
The manufacturer’s recommended age range is 4 to 8 years old. Caden was three and a half years old when we bought the Step 2 Skyward Summit so I definitely think with close adult supervision this is a fun and safe piece of playground equipment for kids a little younger than four. I still make sure I am standing below Caden when he climbs in case he should fall.
Since we’ve had the Step 2 Skyward Summit, Caden has played with it every week and nearly everyday. Over the summer his climbing and gross motor skills have improved greatly! He went from being unable to climb it at all without assistance to being able to climb to the top and back down on his own. The four different sides of the climber pose a unique challenge. The Step 2 Skyward Summit also lends itself well to outdoor pretend play and games of hide-and-go-seek.
