    The Enclosure On This Trampoline Will Keep Your Kids Out Of Trouble!

    August 9th, 2011

    Small product picture of trampoline with enclosure review.

    If you are looking for a trampoline with enclosure, then a great option to consider is the Pure Fun 12-Foot Trampoline and Enclosure Set. This product is rather sturdy and the “W-shaped legs” really help to make sure that the kids will have a hard time tipping it over. One of the things that many appreciate is the way the enclosure attaches to the frame. It’s easy to attach and the zipper allows the kids to get in and out without much trouble. The pure fun trampoline has plenty of space, being 12 feet across, but it’s a little weak when it comes to maximum weight at only 250 pounds. Many of the other trampolines on the market can support a bit more weight than that.

    So you will have to make sure your kids aren’t piling in there with all of their friends (which you know they’re going to want to do). The wide surface really provides a lot of room for jumping and acrobatics, which is what the kids really want to do when they get on the trampoline. Most of the parents who have shared their thoughts on this product have indicated that it provides a solid, sturdy surface on which the kids can play. Parents also report that the Pure Fun trampoline is relatively weather resistant and it’s okay to leave it uncovered in the rain. The biggest complaint across the board is the assembly that is required. The instructions are out of date and the assembly time is considerable.

    Solar Pool Cover Will Keep The Water In Your Pool When You’re Out

    August 3rd, 2011

    Small product picture of solar pool cover review.

    If you have owned an above ground pool for any time, you know that leaving it uncovered will lead to quick evaporation, requiring you to constantly fill it. And then you are going to spend most of your time cleaning out bugs and leaf litter. But the Intex 59953E Krystal Clear 12 Foot Solar Pool Cover will help you avoid all of the hassles with your Intex above ground pool, so you can spend your time enjoying it, instead of cleaning it. Not only does the product install easily (it just floats on top of the water) but it keeps the water warmer, too. Instead of having to give up your pool in September, you should be able to enjoy it into October or longer (if you’re further south).

    Many of the reviews I investigated online showed a real appreciation for how easy this solar pool cover installed. It’s very easy to unroll and install, since it floats on the water, just under the lip of the pool. You have to be sure to get just the right size for your pool, though, as it is designed for an exact fit.There are two major complaints on the Intex solar cover. First, the cover is prone to ripping if you aren’t careful. Any transportation of the cover is another chance for it to be damaged, so you should try to keep it in the included carrying case whenever it isn’t on top of the pool. The other major complaint shared by reviewers online is that it’s very difficult to get the cover back in its carrying case. So you are going to have a hard choice to make: struggle with putting the cover in its case, or risk ripping it as you transport it.

    An Adorable Mushroom Baby Pool Keeps Baby Cool and Shady

    July 13th, 2011

    Small product picture of baby pool review.

    This precious looking baby pool has a couple of unique features – a mushroom shade top that keeps them from getting sunburned and a bottom that blows up so it’s softer than the hard ground or driveway you might set it on. When I did my research for this review, it got a few mixed reviews, but it seems to be a pretty good option for the money. This baby pool is large enough for an older baby or toddler to play in, though it’s probably not the best option for a baby who can’t sit up well yet. The blow-up bottom would make it easy to get thrown off balance! The sides are low enough that a crawler can get in and out on his own, too.

    One interesting thing that some reviewers did was to turn this baby pool into an indoor, year-round toy. It can be a tent, a playhouse, or just about anything else with a little imagination. Lots of reviewers noted just how darn cute this little mushroom topped pool is, and I couldn’t agree more. The pool keeps baby and the water cool with the shaded top, though you might have to move it around as the sun changes angles. It’s a great size – easy to move around the yard, but big enough for a baby to do more than just sit in. The attached toys are really entertaining for little ones, though there are some small parts that you’ll have to watch your youngest babies with. According to a few reviews, this baby swimming pool really just doesn’t last very long, and it’s not made of super durable plastic.

Many of the reviews came from parents who had purchased the scooter for a young child, around 7 or 8 years of age. Although a reputable brand, some online reviews had negative experiences with the product. The most common issue was that the mini scooter didn’t work for long, plus lacked in overall quality and construction. With such few reviews of this kind however, it’s possible that these may have been the lemons of the bunch.

    January 11th, 2011

    Product review of a fast electric scooters.

    Don’t settle for a scooter that’s second best – the Super Turbo Elite is the most powerful electric scooter on the market. It can carry a 300 pound rider, which means this machine isn’t just for the kids.

    These fast electric scooters feature many upgrades, such as an LED headlight and a front swinger mono shock. The scooters are built on a solid steel frame, with extra wide tires and rear disc brakes. There are many electric scooter manufacturers on the market, including Razor and X-Treme. Yet no other manufacturer produces the same quality bikes as Super Turbo and ratings fall short on the other brands. In fact, the Super Turbo Elite has perfect reviews, with all customers agreeing on the quality, durability and performance of the bike. The one concern that reviewers have with the electric scooter is that the battery life may not last as long as manufacturers say. And, some had trouble with the decals falling off. Otherwise, this teenage or adult electric powered scooter is fast and powerful, certainly the best one – hands down!
