I would definitely not be welcoming it in to my home...it probably seems a bit harsh for your parents, but my mum seems to think that when we were little she never said to no us and she just had a house full of toys. Now, I certainly remember having lots of things to play with, and I also remember being told 'no that's too big for our house, you can't have that' etc....my mum has erased this from her memory of course As a result my mum thinks that we should be accepting of absolutely everything that she wants to buy our children and I often have to be quite firm with her, even though she gets quite annoyed with me by it.

It never would have occured to me to be annoyed at my mum over this?!?! But then my mum lives in a different State. Ask me this time next year when I've moved 30 mins drive from her

I just spoke to her and she's decided to gift it to a friend of hers for her grandson who is slightly younger than my DS.
Hope her friend is up for a DIY project

Good outcome for you, perhaps not for the friend of hers though. I'd be thinking "what a totally random present".
As for the PVC pipe, I'm sure Bunnings could help out with drilling the holes etc, but geez, what a pain organising it all!
