Has anybody bought a secondhand wooden climbing frame slide/swing set?

Its DDs 4 th birthday in a month, so we have been looking at sturdy wooden climbing frame set for her. Prices from new seem pretty much out of our budget shock but we were looking on ebay recently as it seems a lot more affordable than the new ones.

So just wondering if anyone has any experience of buying these secondhand and did you have any problems/ would you recommend or would it be prudent to buy a smaller new one? Any advice would be much appreciated flowers

Yes we have. We got an eBay bargain, £90 second hand for what would have been £500 new. It does need some sprucing up though. A couple of bits of wood need replacing and DH is sanding and painting it all too.

Thanks NoArmaniNoPunani!
How long have you had it? I don't mind the sprucing up bit i just need to make sure it's all safe! Did you have any concerns about yours when you got it home?

We only picked it up last weekend. It's all safe just a bit weather worn
