- User Rating: Disappointing
Pros:Just the right size for little kids under 7 or 8 to play in.
Cons:NO company support when the fabric disintegrates in air.
Money wasted. Kids disappointed. Useless!
The Bottom Line: WHEN, not if, the fabric disintegrates and it won't pressurize, don't look for any support to replace the defective product. Stay far away from "home bounce rooms".
Bought a simple Bounce 'Round I've since found out was discontinued 1.5 years ago. That washes Spinmeister's hands of any responsibility for its quality or how long you should be able to use this overpriced toy.
Mine won't "pressurize" even though there are no rips, tears, or any sign of use. The fan blades are as clean as new, as is all the fabric. This is a very unused unit, no dirt anywhere, nothing's coming apart. But, even if you add a leaf blower to the air outlet to add more air to what the fan blows...it won't support a 40 pound little kid and if you open the front entrance, the tube over it collapses for lack of pressure.
The nylon fabric the whole top is made of, as well as the fan tube and outlet are plastic coated to seal them. The coating disintegrates just sitting on the shelf in the storage bag in whatever warehouse it came from. You can suck air through the cheap nylon fabric...anywhere on it....rendering the unit USELESS.
To quote Spinmeister's "support", "The fabric probably deteriorated being stored so long (ED - 1.5 years must be eternity in the bounce business). Go to www.bouncelandfun.com for information on how to 'waterproof' it." SpinMeister wanted nothing to do with making the product's defective material REPLACED or FIXED at their expense. To quote them, again, "We discontinued that product about a year and a half ago. It must have been stored on a shelf all that time.".....absolving SpinMeister of any responsibility for its quality or usability.
STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM IT AS YOU CAN GET....
I now own the world's most powerful LEAF BLOWER.
