Awesome accessory/activity

Had/having lots of fun building and using this with my 4yo son. Right now it's carrying peg dolls between their tree fort and castle. He is loving it! I bet in summer we'll try it outside...

Great once it is up and running, falls down easily though.

We took some time getting this up and running. Sadly, assembling these kinds of things has never been my forte, but we managed. We needed 2 people to put the final stages together, otherwise the twine kept falling off. The one thing that was challenging was getting it to stay attached to whatever surface we selected. I definitely recommend using a piece of cardboard between the clamp and the surface so you can tighten it sufficiently. I don't think my child has the hand strength to tighten it as much as it needed to be tightened, but that might just be us. Anyway, once it was up and running it was definitely fun to send little things up the stairway or across the room. Looking forward to trying it outdoors once the weather warms up a bit.
