My daughter is a little monkey.
When it comes to climbing and jumping, she is a natural and really loves it.
But for a 4 year old, it’s not easy to provide opportunities that let her do the climbing and jumping in a safe and easily accessible way. Often I find her climbing the fence, climbing on the roof of her playhouse and jumping on furniture. None of which are conducive to safety and the longevity of my couch.
Because of that, I love when I discover products like the iBounce Kid’s Trampoline from JumpSport.
The iBounce by JumpSport! Hop-A-Long with Rompidy Roo! The perfect trampoline for toddlers.
Included with bundle:
- JumpSport iBounce™ Kids Trampoline
- JumpSport iBounce™ Tablet Mount
- Hop-A-Long with RompidyRoo™ DVD
Let your little ones entertain themselves with a smile on their face! The JumpSport Kid’s trampoline is a fun and engaging way for toddlers to exercise! Their personal-sized trampoline will provide them with years of fun, safe and energetic bouncing. This is something they will use every day and it is easily assembled in as little as 15 minutes!
The bungee cords provide a soft and lively bounce while the handle bar adds stability so little ones can work on their balance and motor skills. With a JumpSport iBounce Tablet Mount, your kids will be able to exercise while watching the Hop-Along with RompyRoo video — also available as an eBook on most platforms. Let the grand adventures begin!
We decided to put together our iBounce outside. it was a beautiful day and we wanted to spend it outside but Abby was super excited to try out her new trampoline.
Assembly wasn’t too difficult, but it was a bit time consuming. Make sure you focus and understand what goes where and the direction things face and orient is pretty important. Also don’t make the same mistake I did and tighten the zip ties that are used to hold the fabric in place before you add the bungee cords. The directions said to tighten them, but really leave them loose until they are all on then go around to each one and tighten them a tiny bit at a time to make sure the fabric stays centered. I could not do the bungee cords by myself, my husband had to attach them because it required some strength plus he need me to hold down the trampoline as he pulled. Overall it wasn’t too bad but probably isn’t a one-person job.
The second we were done, Abby hopped on!
And she jumped.
Later we moved the iBounce indoors and now when I run on my treadmill Abby bounces on her iBounce! What a great way for her to workout with me. I know I set a good example by running on my treadmill, but never has there been such a great opportunity for her to workout with me at the same time. The iBounce has made that possible. Anything that helps make kids more active is a very power tool, and when they view it as a toy – something fun, it is even better.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Thanks to the included tablet mount and DVD, kids can use their iBounce with some guidance from RompyRoo, and follow along with the DVD or eBook available on most tablets.
Overall I think the iBounce is a great way to encourage and promote exercise in a fun way. It does take up some room, and because of the handle, you can’t simply lean it up against the wall and put it out of the way. But, with how often Abby wants to use it, it’s never “in the way” it has just become a part of our daily routine.
