Advantages: Stayed in good condition when used correctly
Disadvantages: Springs came loose, loud, pvc cover is coming away
My mum bought this for me around five years ago, if not longer and me and some of my family members have used it so much that it's looking very worse for wear now! It is still useable but quite noisy and some of the springs have come away from the material slightly which is always a bit of a worry as they're quite sharp.
I have no idea how much my Mum paid for this but I remember that she got it from Argos. The current retail price is around the £30.00 mark depending where you buy it from which in my opinion is a reasonable price and if you look after it (eg don't make the mistake of lending it to two hyperactive kids like I did) it will stay in pretty good condition.
I have the black and silver version of the trampette but it is also available in red and black and blue and black. Mine says 'V-Fit' in white writing in the middle and it is identical to the dooyoo picture, but the branding has changed and the more recently made ones say 'pro fitness' - not that it effects the product or anything, I just thought that it was worth mentioning. The trampette is round with six sturdy legs holding it up. It's a few inches off the ground so it feels safe when I am stood on it. It is a good size and there is enough space to do star jumps and running on the spot etc.
The silver material around the trampette is made of a thick pvc type of material which is starting to come a bit loose and the black bouncy part is made from nylon. It is strong and doesn't dip when I stand on it and when I bounce on it there isn't much resistance. I am eight stone and it has a maximum user weight of around seventeen stone meaning it's very strong. It is easy to jog on as it feels secure and strong under my feet and although I used to bounce up and down on it for ten minutes or so to get my heart pumping fast I find that the noise gets on my nerves and even when I have music blasting out of my earphones I can still hear it.
I used to use mine indoors and outdoors but now that I rarely use it I just keep it in the garage. This stayed in good condition for a good four and a half years or so until my cousin's two little ones spotted it. Seeing as I wasn't using it much I lent it to them and a few weeks later it came back in a right state; what they did to it I don't know but the springs were coming loose and nearly sticking out of the pvc. It's a shame because I did enjoy using this and it was an easy, low intensity work out which was actually quite fun and I am considering buying another one.
Overall this is pretty good quality and great value for money - it lasted me for over four years with regular use. It is important to take care of it though and use it properly else you will end up with an unuseable trampette. Even before it broke it was very loud as well which I found annoying.
