American Plastic Toys My First Climber Review

my first climber

This is a “cheap” climber, so the plastic is less dense than that found with other plastic climbers. Secondly, the plastic pieces arrive still “in frame” and need to be cut out of the plastic frame with scissors prior to assembly. Removing the pieces from the plastic frame leaves sharp burrs, so I used some sandpaper I had lying around the house to smooth the plastic in these areas.

Assembly itself was very quick and easy with a power drill. I did make the decision to add sand to the hollow legs of the climber to improve stability. This climber has a relatively small footprint, so it is well suited for an indoor space. From my cursory measurements, it is about 28.25” in height, 45” in length, and 26.75” at its widest point. The inner width of the slide itself is about 8.5” and the outer width is 12”.

All in all this climber was worth the investment, but considering its relatively small size, it may have been worth the extra investment for a larger and sturdier climber. Its definitely better suited for indoor spaces and younger toddlers. My First Climber is available for $39.99 on Amazon.
