I purchaced the Obstacle Course bouncer for my daughter who is 3 years old. When we first set this thing up we expected it to be 1/2 the size it actually was, as there is no display in the store. Now we know why. Despite the large size, it inflated in about 2-3 minutes and our only child suddenly had many brothers and sisters coming over to play with her. To see the joy on her face when she is bouncing with her friends, makes it worth every penny. The Obstacle part of the course is great exercise and big enough for at least 4 kids which is the recomended maximum.

Now the value - we got it for 1/2 off during a sale which really makes it a great deal because that is the same cost as renting one. However you should be careful when dragging it or moving it, as the bottom can puncture quite easily over rough surfaces, but it will take quite a few holes to cause any kind of significant damage. So learn from my mistake and only move it using the supplied case or have somebody help you carry it which will reduce any chance of damage. The repair kit worked perfectly so it's like new again. Since the blower must be on while playing make sure you have a durable 3 pronged extension cord if you don't have an outlet close to where you plan on setting it up.

I would give it five stars for fun but because of the durablilty issue (which if you are careful will not be a problem) I am giving it an overall rating of four stars.

We just purchased this for our 2.5 yr old. We had been looking at getting her a slide to have in the yard, and ended up with this. We thought it would be a great alternative to the regular playset. Our backyard is not level enough for a play structure and of course we do not want one out in the front yard. This is going to work great -- Just put it up when the weather permits and take it down. I wish we felt comfortable leaving it outside all weekend long but it's liable to be stolen so for us it has to be put away every night. It is a little heavy, but can be done with only one adult.

Our daughter and our neighbors daughter (same age) played ALL day. Our neighbors also thought it was the ideal play set for our type yards. They're thinking of getting the next model up (w/ climbing wall and spiril slide) so that we can have a whole park in our yards.

Our only concern with this type of structure is punctures, but we are taking extra precautions to make sure that nothing is in the grass before set up, and we are laying a large tarp under it also.

We purchased this for our 2 year old son and set it up at his party...it was a big hit! We had first purchase the slide and play and where disapointed it was so small, so we spent the extra $150. and where glad we did, because he will be well bounced out before he outgrows this one... We set it up at his party and there had to be about 8 kids in it at one time. I do recommend anyone buying one of these to put tarps under and all around the area outside of it...because the kids slide out and run around it and go back in..it will get dirty fast unless they stay on the tarps..also make them take off their shoes...and you will have a great toy for years to come..my friend has a commercial one and all there is to do is bounce.. this one is much better..it has obstacles to climb over and under and two slides, a great product...well worth the money...of course it's a little on the heavy side but thats good you get what you pay for...good quality.....

I bought this for my 2 and a half year old who loves to climb and jump around, and was outgrowing his smaller baby climbers. He just loves this! It provides tons of excercise and tires them out fast. It is quite large and heavy, but well worth if, you'll definitly need someone's help to move it around while deflated. Just an FYI- It's funner with more than one child, because it has two sides to the obstacle course, my son has more fun when he has someone to compete against. His sister is thirteen, and she often finds herself in the bouncer too. This would be great for someone with two children around the same age.

This bounce house is awesome and for the price it was well worth it. We got it 50% off at our local Toy's R Us store. I was really excited because in the picture it didn't look as big, but when I blew it up, it was HUGE!!! There is tons of room inside. I only have a five year old and a 15 month old, but this bounce house can definitely accommodate more than the recommended children amount (4). It's so fast to inflate. My kids love it (although if you have a 15 month old, you MUST follow her everywhere she goes. Do NOT take your eyes off her). This is definitely something that we will have for years to come.

My husband thought it was like the smaller one we bought for $199, but this one is alot bigger and has more stuff. He was thrilled that we got it for the same price (we ended up returning the other one). The obstacle course is really fun (two slides so two kids can slide down together, tunnels, and that big round thing to climb up on and over). We're going to use this for our 5 year old's birthday party coming up. I'm so happy we bought it instead of renting it because we can use it everytime we have a bbq or party for the kids. It's cheaper than renting it!!!!

I do recommend though, that something soft be put under the slides and the other side of the entrance because if a kid falls, he can really hurt himself. I think I'm more cautious just because I have a 15 month old, but even my 5 year old scares me a bit when she's running in and out of the bouncer and going down the slides. Other bouncers I've seen have nets at the entrance to prevent kids from falling out of the entrance. This one doesn't. It has two tunnels with no nets and in my perspective a small child bouncing around can easier fall out. There is a bounce part on the outer part of the two tunnels, but no net to protect the kids from still falling onto the ground.

We were debating wheather we should rent or buy the obstacle course bouncer. After lots of research, and for the same price or less, we decided to buy. It was a very smart decision we made. The obstacle course bouncer was a hit at our party. The kids (ages 2 to 13) would not stop playing in it. The parents at the party were impressed with the OCB, lots of them are now proud owner of the OCB. I hope this help, these kind of reviews help me a lot. Good luck!!

I just set up this bouncer for the first time and it was very easy. The kids loved it and I am so happy I didn't buy a regular bouncer as the obstacle course kept them occupied for hours. I have noticed with regular bouncers the kids lose interest after 5-10 minutes. Not with the obstacle course - I think the kids played for at least 1.5 hours before finally taking a little break. It wasn't that difficult to put away (it helped to have an extra set of hands). The product is well made and I couldn't be happier. I also feel lucky as I bought this 2 weeks ago from Amazon and paid $299, wow, the price has gone up. Well, worth it.

We bought this for our 22 month old son and he absolutely loves it! We put it up in our front yard and he just can't get enough. Even my 7 year old and her friend have a blast on this. The bouncer is made so two kids can race each other through the obstacles, through the hole, over the big tumbler, under the arch and down the slide---may the best kid win! We read some reviews before buying and noticed how a lot of people mentioned it was very heavy so we just solved that by buying a wagon at the same time. We just use the wagon to wheel it back and forth from the garage. Also, some reviews said that it does not fit back in the bag, but it does. You just have to make sure you get all of the air out and roll it up very tightly, we did it like you would a sleeping bag. It worked perfect, went in the bag with no hassle at all. And the reason I rated it high in educational is because our 22 month old has some motor skill issues and is behind in his developmental skills....(possible autism) and I was a little worried this might be too much for him and it isn't at all. He was a little afraid at first, but once I made him get on it 2 or 3 times he wouldn't get off. And it is really helping his motor skills. We also bought the warranty at Toy's R Us...it covers the bouncer for 3 years! Any issues you just contact the company and they send you a new one. How can you go wrong! Overall I am extremely pleased with this product!!

I just purchased this bouncer for my 23 month old for his 2nd birthday. I was more excited than anyone so i couldn't wait for June to give it to him. We decided to open it this past weekend. It has posed to be a hit with everyone in the neighborhood. Old and young alike.

We went back and forth with "purchase vs. rental" because of a previous birthday party we went to that specialized in bounce house birthdays. After seeing the excitement on my son's face we knew a decision had to be made. We decided that even if he didn't play with this item constantly, it would make for great group fun for any occasion.

We had about 6 children in the obstacle course at one time and proved to be very durable through all the jumping, landing, sliding, falling, etc. The house course kept all the children entertained for about 1.5hrs (when I decided to take it down). This offers more than your traditional "bounce house" where children get bored of just jumping for an hour straight.

This is a very interactive toy for parents and children! Makes for good camaraderie among neighbors. All equals good times! Believe me it will pay for itself after several uses!

I bought a little tykes bounce house for my two kids. They loved it, and it was really fun.

But the thing started falling apart very quickly. The rubber coating that keeps the air came off, so air would leak out very quickly. I bought it for them for Christmas, and three months after Christmas, it couldn't even hold three small children.

The warranty is only 90 days. When I called about returning it, they said I was two weeks too late. (It's probably such a short warranty because they know that it won't last 6 months.)

It's a great toy if you're rich and you can afford to spend money like this for something that won't last long. But if you aren't so rich, then you won't be as happy.
