Hi - we don't have a wooden one, we have a plastic type one. I love it and the kids really like it. We couldn't afford to buy a wooden one - they are very pricey. Be careful though, ask what the wood is treated with. There is a chemical that is used on some pressure treated wood. I think it is called CAC - Chromated Arsenic or something like that. It's an arsenic compound that is still being used today in some woods and especially play sets. Sudo redwood tables, some deck wood, etc. It is EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS and can kill people if ingested (if you touch the wood, then like your hand or wipe your nose). Many children have died from this and it has not been taken off the markets.
