- Product Type: Active Play Product – kids trampolines
- Age Target: 3-10 Years of Age
I don’t know about you, but I grew up absolutely dying for a trampoline at my house. My parents would never get one because they were worried that I’d end up falling off and breaking a bone. As a result, I didn’t get one until I was into my teens. However once we had one, it was used constantly.
And I never broke any bones!
Now having said that, I know that every time my little guy wants to go on a trampoline, I cringe a little. The uncontrollable bouncing once he gets going on these things is a bit scary for a first time parent. That is, unless they have a good quality net around the entire trampoline.
Which brings me to our next product review. This week, we’re reviewing the Upper Bounce 55-Inch Trampoline and Enclosure Set. Let’s get right to it.
- There are no springs! The trampoline uses bungee cords instead, and then hides those under a solid pad.
- A pretty high quality enclosure net that goes plenty high for most kids. We’ve set the limit to 10 years old, but I’m betting you could go higher if you wanted to.
- It doesn’t have to live outdoors. This is built to be both an indoor and an outdoor trampoline
- It’s lightweight and pretty easy to set up. Now, that’s not to say it’s cheap and will flip when your child jumps on it, but because it’s smaller than a full size trampoline, it’s lighter. Upper Bounce has also given some thought to ease of assembly, which I love.
- Your standard entry exists with a velcro closing strap. The poles are also all padded for additional head-bonking safety.
- The price is great as far as I’m concerned. I’ve looked through a number of these and I’ve struggled to find a better deal for this quality of trampoline. £70 through Amazon.
What’s Not As Great:
- Get a drill or a different screwdriver than the one included. This wasn’t an issue for me, but if it’s a big deal for you, best to avoid this.
- There is a weight limit of 120 lbs. If your child is heavier than this, go bigger!
- Cover it in the snow…as is the case with all trampolines.
In any case, I think this is a great deal for a wonderful trampoline. I get giddy thinking of all the fun my child and I are going to have with this. While I won’t be joining him inside, I can promise that he’ll be wrestling with his cousins in there. If you’d like to look at purchasing one of these, head to Upper Bounce’s site to learn more or head straight to Amazon here.
Until next time,
Smash, crash, and learn!
