Before I begin, I want to say that I was not compensated for this review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post does contain affiliate links for your convenience.
We bought the AirZone 55-Inch Trampoline & Enclosure for Christmas 2012. It has been kept inside our home the entire time. Since we purchased it, my son has played on it often. Every time we have a get together with friends or family, the kids love to jump in it. It has been well-used!
1. It is a great way to burn off energy during the colder months of the year and is great exercise for kids.
2. It is large enough for two small children, but doesn’t take up a huge amount of room in our house.
3. It does NOT use springs. For us, this was important as we didn’t want little fingers to get pinched.
4. It has an enclosure so we don’t have to worry about the kids falling off of it.
5. It has held up very well. The trampoline is still very bouncy and has not sagged at all. There are no rips on the jumping surface.
6. Kids LOVE it!
1. There was a tiny rip right along the edge of the zipper on the trampoline enclosure soon after giving it to our son. It showed up the day another child visited our home so I am pretty sure it was due to misuse. It could easily be sewn though. We’ve had no other rips in the enclosure. The zipper still works perfectly.
2. You need two strong people to put it together. It is very hard to stretch the bungee cords around the frame. By the time you get to the last few bands, you have to pull VERY hard.
I have read some of the negative reviews given about this trampoline and I want to give my thoughts on some of them.
– This trampoline is best for kids ages 2-5. Older kids weigh more and they are often a little more wild on the trampoline. The total weight limit for the trampoline is 60 pounds. So two 40 pound children would even be too much. Although it has done well with occasional use by older children, I could see where it would be a problem with daily use.
– My son has used this from age 1.5 – 3.5. He is a ball of energy, but he’s not particularly rough or destructive while on this. If he were to jump into the net or try to climb it, etc. this would not have lasted as long as it has.
– I don’t think it would last as long outside and especially in harsh weather. If you are hoping to keep this outside and have it last a long time, you may want to rethink the purchase.
– For less than $100, I didn’t expect something that would last for a very long time. I feel like we’ve gotten our money’s’ worth in the 2 years we have had it. It’s still in excellent condition, so I think we will get quite a bit more use from it.
Overall, I highly recommend the AirZone 55-Inch Trampoline & Enclosure for toddlers and preschoolers. It is a great tool for exercising and developing gross motor skills. I am very happy with our purchase!
