We liked it because it features not one, but two safety nets that keep children safe. What we didn't like was the short warranty time.
If you are looking for a small trampoline for your children to use exclusively, make sure you don’t skip on the AirZone 55-Inch that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Although small and compact, it’s a very sturdy backyard leisure that will surely keep your little ones busy. The price is very affordable so getting it for your kid is not a financial effort. Let’s have a look at why this is one of the most recommended kids trampolines on the market.
Being a mini model, it measures only 55 inches in diameter and 58 inches in height and it’s very lightweight, weighing around 3-4 lbs. However, it’s made of the same resistant galvanized steel of large models so you won’t have to worry about it breaking or tilting. Since it’s rust-resistant, it can be used all year round without having to worry about rust. The safety poles made of the same durable steel tubes are padded with a soft foam to prevent kids from hurting themselves. The legs are actually steel poles that are secured to the ground and that hold the lower enclosure net that prevents pets or kids from getting under the frame.
The jumping mat is quite resistant although it doesn’t have the same extended weight capacity found in larger above-ground models. To connect the net to the poles, the manufacturer used a red strap that matches the safety pad that covers the steel springs. To prevent children from escaping without permission, the net includes a zippered arch the size of a child that you can securely close.
Thanks to the small size, it’s very easy to install and this can be done by only one person. It comes in only one package that includes the frame, the rail padding, and the net enclosure. You might have some difficulties putting the elastic bands around the bars but with a little attention, you will have it done. All the necessary tools are included with the airzone trampoline so it will be easy for you to follow the installation steps in the manual.
This mini trampoline that has been designed for kids will surely be a safe playground even if the little ones are very small. It’s not very tall so the risks of falling from a height are diminished. Also, the net is tightly secured so that there is no risk of falling in between the gaps. Moreover, the enclosure net has been laboratory-tested and it has complied with all the ASTM safety standards. Aside from falling off, there is another chance of children getting hurt and that is if they crawl underneath the jumping mat while someone else is bouncing on the mat. This risk is eliminated due to the extra net placed around the legs so that no child could get underneath it. The maximum weight capacity recommended by the manufacturer is 60 lbs but parents who have bought it state that they can accompany their child and the mat is strong enough to support up to 170 lbs.
There are no accessories included with the AirZone 55′ because it’s so small that children don’t have enough room to play games inside the net. Given how narrow it is, a basketball hoop would be useless and there is not enough space for multiple children to jump on it. It doesn’t need a ladder for children to get on and off because the distance to the ground is very short and they can easily crawl on top of it.
Although some trampolines have a longer period of warranty, this one is only backed for 1 year so, during the first 12 months after the purchase, you will enjoy free repairs or replacements for the frame, the jumping mat, or the net. Nevertheless, this is not the time you will be enjoying the fullest of your bouncer as it is designed to last for many years. A useful tip would be not to leave it outdoors in the wind, especially if you live in a stormy area because it’s very lightweight and it could be easily blown away. You could also secure it with some wind stakes to prevent any damage.
