Fun for BBQ's and Parties
on June 1, 2006
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.
