I purchased this trampoline to use in my son's therapy. I love that it is colorful, and can be used to follow directions (hop red, hop on yellow etc). I also like that once assembled, you can just pop off the handle bars and store it in 2 pieces, takes less space. We use this nearly every day, having had this for about 3 weeks. I love that having now had this, I've seen a dramatic decrease in the kids (my other son uses it too) jumping on the couch or the bed.
Now the things I didn't like. Assembly was a pain. Using tension bands vs springs is less of an injury factor for the child, but putting it together by myself, left me with sore, bruised hands/fingers. Mind you I am rather um dainty, but still. All in all it can be assembled by one determined person. The directions aren't very clear when you secure the tarp, but after muddling it through it can be reasoned out. My main dislike is that after only 1 afternoon of use during therapy, the blue edging on the tarp ripped in one spot. Only my youngest used it (that day), without shoes (per instructions) and he only weighs 38 lbs. It hasn't hampered the function or safety yet, but still. I hope it isn't a sign of overall durability.
Lastly always remember to supervise. While a child doing mild bouncing isn't much of an issue, a child determined to bounce the crazies out, can make the trampoline move. So just in case the child wants to go crazy, an adult on hand to make sure they don't tip, is a good idea.
