Little Tikes Shady Bouncer Jump’n’Slide Review
If you have a small child who loves to bounce on your beds and couches or has to be dragged out of the jumper at a carnival, this is the toy for you. Alternatively if you want to encourage an inactive child to get out and exercise more, this could be ideal. It gives a safe and secure environment where your child can bounce to his or her heart’s content.
It’s a colorful jumper in the bright primary colors that appeal to little kids. The green canopy over the top protects kids from the sun.
You’ll be glad to hear it’s quick and easy to inflate using the air blower. Kids will enjoy watching it slowly come to life.
There’s a slide at the front for extra fun when they want to exit the bouncer. There’s also a mesh bag where they can leave shoes to avoid having them in a pile around the entrance.
The Little Tikes Shady Jump and Slide Bouncer is well made with strong, puncture resistant materials. Of course you need to take care that kids don’t go in there with any sharp edged toys that could make a hole in the bouncer. You do get a repair kit in case there is a puncture but it’s better if you can avoid needing that.
A lot of people rent a bouncer for a child’s party and then have to face the tears when it’s taken away after the birthday is over. This isn’t a small or cheap toy but if you have the space it could give your little kids and their friends many hours of fun.
So is there a downside? Well, this bouncer does need some taking care of. You can’t leave it out in the rain or it gets moldy, so you have to pack it away in its storage bag after every use.
This is a large jumper but it’s only designed for kids up to and including 5 years old. If you have older kids they should stay off it – although you can see in the video it’s pretty big, and even Mom is playing in there at the beginning.
Finally, Little Tikes’ customer service has come in for some criticism for being slow and difficult. We suggest you buy from Amazon using the link below so you can return it to Amazon without question if there is any problem.
This is a well designed bouncer with plenty for kids to enjoy. It will be an attraction for your own child and his or her friends. All the reviews say that kids love it, so we recommend you go ahead and get one!
