Keeping kids active is very important even though it’s practically impossible in the cold months. I have my older 2 kids in sports and activities that keep them moving but Jaxon is too young for that type of stuff right now. I was excited when approached to do a review of the JumpSport iBounce Kids Trampoline.
When the iBounce arrived we agreed we would tell the kids that it was a “potty present” for Jaxon since he has recently become fully potty trained. That way maybe the big kids would let him have his toy and leave it alone at least for a bit. Jeff and I sat down one night when the kids were in bed and worked on putting it together. The frame was pretty easy to put together and we had that done in a matter of minutes. When we got to the handle bar, that was a different story….Jeff couldn’t get a screw in and we eventually found out one part was cut wrong. But after letting the company know of the issue we had a replacement part quickly. Today we finished putting the trampoline together and lucky for Jaxon we kept him home due to him having a fever. He even helped Jeff put it together.
This trampoline isn’t put together with metal springs, instead it’s bungee cord and I like that. It also comes with a slightly padded fabric to cover the edges of the trampoline so Jaxon’s foot can’t go between the mat and the frame. In the video below you can see where that’s a huge plus because he jumped on that a few times. The safety of this trampoline is awesome, I love the handle bar in the front. While Jeff was finishing the mat and cover he lifted his head and hit his head on the green handle and said he didn’t feel anything but pressure (trust me, he came up hard – I watched the trampoline lift off the floor) so I feel comfortable that Jaxon is safe, even though he is getting brave and wants to let go already.
The JumpSport iBounce will make a great gift for a child 2-5 years old or up to 80lbs. I may even let my big kids give it a try when they get home from school since they are both below the weight limit. You can buy it on JumpSport’s site for $129.99.
