I'll be building a playset for my kids this spring. Some of the commercial
ones I've seen have all the edges rounded over (1/2" radius). That seems
like an awful lot of quality time with a router.
I'd be interested to hear from others who built similar structures and can
comment on whether the roundover effort is worth it.

In a word: yup. I rounded over all of the edges for any parts that little
hands would be grabbing onto (in effect, almost all of them). I'm very
happy that I did. I used cedar for mine and rounding over seems to keep
the splinters down. I only used a 1/4" roundover, though.
