DP Grandkids and their friends absolutely loved it! I bought it for a birthday present, it debuted at a birthday party. They spent hours on it, definitely the hit of the party!
Michelle, mother of a 3 year old boy. We bought this for my son for his third birthday. He's played on it himself and we've used it for parties and it is AWESOME! I'm so glad we bought it. It's a great investment to make. This particular Slide 'n Bounce is great! It is easy to set up and takes less than two minutes to inflate. It stakes very securely to the ground and it's VERY durable. Plus, it's HUGE!! We've had 8 kids in it (ages 2-10) jumping and sliding and it's held up great. It's even sturdy enough for an adult to get in to help out littler kids who want to play. We got this on sale at Toys R Us, but honestly, it's worth it at the regular price. It costs almost that much to rent one and it's much better to own one. It's great for crazy kid parties and also for a quiet bounce at home on a boring day. I love that it's a giant, fun toy that you can deflate and put away in a closet when you're done. We didn't have any trouble packing it up, either. LOVE IT!!
Ruth My husband and I purchased this product and were very excited. We opened it up for your son and as soon as we set it up we realized IT WAS TORN!!! It was a [$] product. Oh and Toys R Us never told us there is NO REFUND once you open the box. We contacted Little Tykes who said the same thing. Basically when you buy products from either Toys R Us or Little Tykes you HAVE to keep it regardless of its condition whether you like it or not. So please be careful and conscious when considering purchasing large ticket items from either store.

Lessy P We first used this at our son's 2nd birthday party. There were 7 kids at the party from ages 2-8. They all played on the bouncer and enjoyed it. 3-4 kids were usually on it at a time. The older kids had no trouble climbing the wall to get in, but the younger ones mostly climbed up the lower slide to get in. We found it very easy to blow up and pretty simple to take down. The sides of the bouncing area are not very sturdy at all; they almost dumped my son out when he fell against them. Other than that, it's great! We are glad that we picked this one for our son.
disappointed mom This product was not the size I expected. Even though there were dimensions given, the children on the picture I saw seemed much smaller or the product appeared much larger. My 4yr old is tall for his age and I think it really is too small for him! I guess paying so much I thought it would be a guaranteed success but I was disappointed.
momoftwoboys My boys (3 and 5) love this and beg to have me set it up for them almost daily. The two of them can play nicely in it together. It is perfect for my 3-year old in terms of size/space and what he likes to do. Although my 5-year old (who is tall for his age) seems happy playing in it, I'd say he is almost too big (from a size standpoint)...maybe another year for him? That said, it IS fun
HappyDad We have 3 year old twins, one with Down syndrome. The ladder and slide on this bouncer are huge hits with play dates and a big developmental plus versus plain bouncers. Our son has developed his climbing, core strength, jumping and balance thanks to this bouncer. The arch over the ladder is just low enough to fit inside a standard ceiling, so we clear out our playroom or living room on nasty weather days and turn it on to let the kids burn some energy and get exercise. The two slides create a natural flow for kids through the bouncer (you have to get out to go around and climb the ladder to the big slide), so it is easier to get a large number of kids sharing it than with traditional plain bouncers of the same size. Kids quickly decide to jump from the top down the slide, which worries me that as they get bigger the mesh side wall is not strong enough to stop a bad bounce. I would like to see another air tube where the bottom of the mesh is along the outside wall of the slide. I would also like to see a connecting canopy or tube from the top of the wall in the curve of the slide to the opposite side of the bouncer to add rigidity and discourage jumping too high.
Cindy the chump Because of the problems I had getting a replacement bouncer I will NEVER again purchase anything with the Little Tike Logo. In the last two years I have spent well over $4,000 with Little Tikes. On the third time setting this up I noticed that a seam had come updone. It was well within the 90 days so I called LT and told them the problem with this bouncer. Since NO one in this company know exactly how to give detailed instructions on how to "deface" the product I have now been dealing with this problem for over five weeks. Needless to say, I am HOT! What good is the money I spent purchasing this second bouncer (I purchased one last year and am totally happy with that bouncer) when I cannot get a replacement sent to me in a timely manner or have ANYONE give me detailed instructions on the "correct procedure" to get a new one sent out in a timely manner. So, beware!!!
Mark This blow up play thing was fantastic. It says there is a weight limit but we had probably 3 times that limit and about 6-7 kids from 5-9 years old running and jumping on it diving over the rails from the outside and everything else. They were so rough on this thing It came uncleated from the ground flipped up on its side the air hose came off which I had to duct tape on to keep it on and we just kept setting it back upright re cleating it to the ground. This thing took some abuse and just kept going. Definately worth the money.But I could see it getting boring over time.
