You're probably tired of hearing me say this, since I do very often, but my 2 year old, Sophie, is a whirlwind of terror...oops, energy. She is always on the go and rarely sits still. She is constantly running, jumping, climbing on my furniture, and even spins wildly with her eyes closed, just because she can. It's a wonder we haven't had any broken bones yet! (Knock on wood!)Honestly, I get tired just watching her.
I have rarely seen a child so incredibly active, and I am always trying to find constructive rather than destructive ways for Sophie to get all that energy out. One of Sophie's favorite activities is jumping on a trampoline. She has an absolute blast bouncing around, and giggles wildly.
Here in Virginia, the weather is very unpredictable, so jumping on an outdoor trampoline isn't always possible. We get some crazy rainstorms here, and we also get sticky, sweltering heat in the summer. Winter time is usually pretty dry, but it does get very cold at times. As much as Sophie would love to go outside and jump during these less than ideal conditions, I don't allow it. I don't need her getting soaked to the bone, suffering from heat stroke, or becoming a 28lb popsicle. So jumping on the trampoline has been a rare treat when the weather is cooperative. Until now, that is.
Recently, I got the opportunity to review an amazing new product from JumpSport, a leader in all things that bounce. For over 15 years, JumpSport has brought smiles to kids and adults alike with their wide range of trampolines. This company has a wonderful reputation for bringing families the safest, most durable trampolines on the market. So naturally, when I learned about their brand new indoor trampoline, the iBounce, I couldn't wait to try it with my little monkey!
What is the iBounce, and what makes it so incredibly special? It's more than meets the eye. There are other indoor trampolines on the market, but none quite as remarkable as the iBounce. You see, this indoor trampoline is colorful, inviting, and comes with some extra perks that make it a truly interactive jumping experience for kids between the ages of 2-5. How is it interactive? Well for one, it comes equipped with an easy to install tablet mount that can hold your iPad, nook, Kindle, or other tablet device. You can enhance your trampoline workout with podcasts, videos, and even e-books, making each bounce session a fresh new adventure that is sure to keep your child engaged.
Another very cool thing about the iBounce is that it comes with a fun, interactive DVD that allows your child to bounce along with friendly, cartoon pals, or even follow along with a Mom and Daughter work-out routine that incorporates different moves and tricks. Sophie actually likes the real people more than the cartoon. How weird is that?! Of course your child should always bounce under close adult supervision to prevent injury.

How cool is that?! I told you this isn't your ordinary indoor trampoline! Another thing I really like about the JumpSport iBounce is that it's easy to assemble. It took my husband about 25 minutes to put it together. It would have been quicker, but like many men, he chooses to toss the instructions to the side until he realized he actually needs them. Typical man. The iBounce is spring-free, which is a wonderful safety feature. The jumping platform is secured to the sturdy frame using strong bungee cords. These are very durable and made to withstand years of use and abuse from even the most active of kids, like my Sophie!
Sophie's eyes lit up when she saw her JumpSport iBounce fully assembled. She immediately started clapping her little hands and saying "bounce" and "jump". I knew right away that this would become a fast favorite in my home! Sophie has bounce time every single day, sometimes 2 and 3 times a day, and she doesn't ever seem to tire of it. I like seeing her having so much fun, and I am also secretly relieved that she now has something indoors to jump on instead of my sofa and coffee table. (Yes, she really does try and climb and jump on the table. I did say she's crazy, right?!)
Check out this adorable video of my Sophie having fun on her JumpSport iBounce!
Overall, I am in love with the iBounce, almost as much as Sophie is. It gives her a constructive outlet to release all of her seemingly limitless energy, and it helps her with her balance and coordination. It also helps her learn to follow directions when she mimics the moves in the iBounce DVD! While we don't have a tablet device yet, I can't wait to try the iBounce with podcasts and videos. I have a birthday coming up soon, and I am hoping for an iPad, so we shall see!
I would definitely recommend the JumpSport iBounce to anyone with small children in their lives. This fantastic product is a fun, interactive way to promote a healthy, active lifestyle. It might just save your furniture, too! I also love that this is a perfect, compact alternative to outdoor trampolines. This great trampoline can be used any time of the day or night, and your kids can have fun even during a blizzard or thunderstorm. It doesn't get much better than that! Of course if you're looking for an outdoor trampoline, JumpSport has you covered there, too! I especially like the brand new JumpSport Elite Trampolines. These outdoor, staged bounce trampolines come in a variety of sizes, so you're sure to find the perfect fit for your yard. Check them out!
