A week or two ago I was contacted by JumpSport who was looking for bloggers with children 2-5 to review a kid’s trampoline: the iBounce Kid’s Trampoline I remembered JumpSport from my first FitBloggin (2013), but had been bummed that I was too pregnant to feel comfortable jumping in their exercise class.
I was excited to review and indoor toy that could keep E1 moving during the winter. It was also an exciting opportunity because E1 has loved “Toy review videos” on Youtube lately and he was over the moon with a chance to star in his own review video. Plus, since it has a giveaway to it too it was extra fun.
So we assembled it this weekend and he has been bouncing all weekend long. It came with 3 DVDs that have bouncing ideas and games, but he prefers to just free bounce. Even E2 wanted to get in on the action though her gross motor skills require lots of supervision still.
I really like the trampoline, the bungees are covered so that kids won’t get caught in them. It isn’t too high off the ground but it still has a good bounce to it. E1 can get some serious air.
The handlebars are sturdy and make it safer for the kids. I do think E1 might be on the cusp of being TOO big for it, it is designed for 2-5 yr olds. Still I can see E1 and E2 getting a lot of use out of this. And if E1 is bouncing during the occasional netflix video even better. There is even an iPad holder you can attack and an app to give additional bouncing games for the kids.
I could go on, but I think the smiles on E1’s face and his enthusiasm speak volumes. (Please note, he is sometimes tempted to show off and forgot the handlebars at one point. We are working on that, lol.)
