OK, but a few issues
on 23 September 2009
I got one of these for a 4 year old. There are two main issues. Firstly, the spring is so tight that the weight of the 4 year old wouldn't even budge it to start with (ie no bounce at all). Only when I leant on it with my full weight for about half an hour did it flex at all. Secondly, the sticker at the bottom has peeled off on its own within about 3 weeks.
It's a good idea, but for small kids it seems they just don't have the weight to make it work well. It works best when the child holds on tight and is assisted to bounce up and down but that obviously defeats the point somewhat! I'm pretty sure the spec says it is rated up to about 75Kg which is a small-medium adult from memory, so it stands to reason it can't work well for all weights.
