As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
This is an awesome activity that was a great hit with the kids. Although it was purchased for our grandsons, aged 6 and 8, our 4 year old granddaughter has fun riding it, too, starting halfway down the line. Unless your trees are unusually large, we did not find we needed an extension kit for assembly as some reviewers suggested. The angle of the wire at assembly determines the speed of the ride and its height compared to the child's height will determine whether or not the child will have to hold up their knees when riding. We opted to keep it high and have the children use a steps tool to grasp the handle. Be ready for lots of smiles and laughs. It's not only fun but also builds upper body strength.
I spent a little extra money to buy this because it was made in the USA. However, the quality in workmanship was lacking. First of all, some hardware was missing, and we had to use one of our own bolts and a couple of nuts. Also, when assembling the handle, the holes were not drilled correctly in one of the holes and they didn't match--we had to drill a bigger hole ourselves to make it fit. Finally, the little plastic black caps that were provided to go on the end of the cable were too big and just fell off. However, once we solved all of the above problems our children absolutely loved playing with it. We just don't think after spending almost $100 we should have had to fix any of the above problems.
By gosh and by golly, issues of this scale are rare. Our customer was offered a replacement for the defective item. Please note, the black caps are meant to cover the ends of the cable clamps, not the tip of the cable itself. This could be why they were falling off. If you find the "Fun" Ride is a long time coming, make short work of contacting us via the Returns & Exchanges Center. We're good folks. We'll swing a solution your way without delay.
Bought this to take camping for my girls (11 and 13). It is TONS of fun and easy to use once you figure out how to install it-I didn't think the instructions were that well written (I'm a single mom and not that mechanically inclined though) but once we had it up and running it was easy to adjust!!!! There is a bit of math involved to figure out the heights to install everything, but well worth it-the girls had a blast using it!!!! Played on it for hours and hours!!!! Easy to take down and store...can't wait to use it again!!!!
A rating of Fun Ride Deluxe
Posted 1/10/2013 by Joni Coffman
Since we put up the Fun Ride Deluxe, our 8 year old stays outside ALL DAY on the weekends. It's pretty high so we had to make a platform for her to be able to reach it. The adults love riding the zip line just as much as the kids do! Lots of family fun!
We had to buy an extension to go around one of our trees. The orginal line is made for trees 3 feet around or smaller. (Ours was 7 feet) It was an easy thing to fix though.
Some alternate spelling variations of this product:
gliders, rides, cables, outdoor swings, zip swings, swing rides, kids swings, zipline, zip line, kids tree zipline, kids tree zip line, fun ride deluxe, ziplines,
