Upon first seeing the balance beam, my little toddler baby exclaimed, “big puzzle!” and after we put that big puzzle together, I walked on it showing the use as a balance beam. Probably confused my little one, but it’s now considered a big puzzle that can be walked on!
There are two slight imperfections, one of which kind of concerns me, but not very much. A portion of edging on one of the boards wasn’t sanded as smoothly as the others, and a small section where it wasn’t sanded smooth had a pokey piece of loose wood which I peeled away, so now it’s better but not as smooth as the edges of the other boards. I am hoping the edge doesn’t catch on anything causing the piece that’s not flush with the board to become loose and peel away.
And of less importance, merely affecting appearance, one board has an indentation where something may have been dropped on it.
Those two minor imperfections aside, my baby and I are enjoying our new big puzzle balance beam! I was contemplating buying more boards to add to it, but four are more than enough to start out with using.
Side note: before ordering, I contacted customer service and received some of the best, thorough and kind responses I’ve ever received from any company, on any matter. The quality of communication made my decision to place my first order with them an easy one. Now I am planning my next order!
Thank you for the thoughtful and in depth review! We're pleased to hear that although there was some damage to your beam, that the overall experience has been an A+. :)
While we appreciate you not making a big deal of the imperfections, smooth edges are something that we pride ourselves over and we apologize for missing some on your balance beam. Please email us at email@example.com with your order number, a description of the items damaged, and any relevant photos so that we can get replacements sent out to you ASAP.
Thanks again for choosing RAD and providing us with the feedback. We appreciate you being a part of our community. Enjoy the 'big puzzle!'
I purchased this balance beam set after I got the jumbo climbing triangle + ramp from RAD last June. I love how smooth and sturdy all their products are. Very durable and easy to clean. This beam matches perfectly with the previous products. I noticed how my toddler was having fun in many different ways. He even used them like skis all around the floor. Thank you for a great play set!
We bought this balance beam for our 3 year old for Christmas. We can't wait to enjoy it with him soon. Shipped so fast!
Really well made — easy to put together/move/put away. We got it in conjunction with a climbing triangle and our daughter will spend hours going up, down and then around on the balance beam.
