Step2 products have always filled our house. We know that they are sturdy, safe, kid worthy, and worth every penny we spend on them. This is why I love being a Step2 Test Drive Mom! We get to try out new products and who better to test them out then the two cutest little toddlers ever, Riley and Emma! Recently, we got to check out the Step2 Naturally Playful Woodland Climber and the kids absolutely love it!
The Step2 Naturally Playful Woodland Climber was created for children ages 2 and up with a maximum weight limit of 250lbs which means tons of fun playtime for all those little people in your life! The natural colors go with the outdoor surrounding decor so there are no bold, gaudy colors to be worried about. And to top it all off, it is made in the USA! Now, for the real kid fun! The 27" platform allows smaller children to climb off the ground without being too high but also allows those older children to take a little bit of a risk. To get to the platform, there is a ladder as well as a rock wall on either side that children can climb up. Underneath of the platform, there is a hideout that you can fill with sand for more fun or leave empty for hiding in or playing in! And then, to top off this already amazing play set, there are two steering wheels at the top as well as a slide to get down. Your children will be the talk of the town with this kid friendly climber!
We received our Step2 Naturally Playful Woodland Climber and I was a little nervous about putting it together, but for the most part, the whole process was pretty easy! Majority of the parts simply snapped together. The only problem that I really had were the screws for the steering wheels and the main screws to hold the whole toy together. There were no pre-drilled holes and the box says that you only need a screw driver. But I would definitely suggest using a drill because it took me forever with a regular screwdriver. My hands were so sore since I couldn't find our cordless but really wanted it together before the kids woke up. Total, putting the whole thing together took me about a half hour because of the screws. But snapping all the pieces together took me about five minutes.
The kids woke up from their nap and were ecstatic to see the climber all together! They literally played on it for about five hours straight and the only reason they didn't play longer was because they had to go to bed! The climber was not only fun for the purpose it was made for, but my kids also turned it into a pirate ship, a fort, a hide and seek spot, and so much more! My kids have quite an imagination! Now, mind you, the climber is not meant to be used insides because of safety hazards, but we are keeping ours inside until it stays warm out for good. If I try to take it away from them now, they might be mad at me forever! They are pretty much obsessed!
Overall, I am super impressed by the Step2 Naturally Playful Woodland Climber! It is perfect for my kids and their friends and I love that it is sturdy and safe and has plenty to play with so sharing isn't a problem! I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for something fun for your children to play with this summer! It would also make a super fantastic present!
