I bought this for my son. The assembly is tricky. The instructions recommend three adults and they weren't kidding! I would never attempt to take it apart! It's almost scary trying to get the rubberbands on their. I was afraid I was going to poke my eyes out if one of the bands slipped. Don't attempt to do this alone. It WILL NOT WORK!
It's a great little trampoline for inside when the kids can't get outside to play. My son has this in his room to be able to bounce out all of that built up energy that he seems to have! Trampoline seems very sturdy and solid.My husband and I have both bounced on it as well; it's entirely appropriate for adults looking to exercise, very stable. I do wish that the legs were foldable so that it could be slid underneath the bed. I am not sure if this would make it less stable though. It seems that they could make the legs lock kindof like a folding table and that would work.
Kids Love it!
My daughter recieved this for Christmas this year. We were first very impressed at how fast it could be put together! The springs were already attached, the material and protective layer were already in place, and all we had to do was remove black caps and twist the legs into the slots! I will say that I was surprised that after a week of use that we needed to retwist them, as we noticed one leg seemed awfully wobbly as the kids were jumping. I didn't see the re-tighten instruction in the manual. I also love how the trampoline can easily slide underneath my child's twinsize bed. The manual says to only use the trampoline indoors if there is a clearing of 25 feet. Frankly, that is just unrealistic and I don't know anyone that has a 25 foot ceiling. I was the first one to use the trampoline to try it out, and I was terrified of breaking it with the squeaks and unusual feel it has -- as if it will break. But the kids used it without fear, and after they were done it was as if they had worn it in and I could use it just fine afterwards. I don't see in the manual if you should use shoes or go barefoot. As of yet, my daughter is scared shoes will break it. But if adults use it barefoot, expect the feet to be a bit sore.
It's a classic aerobics exercise, that will never stop working!
This mini Trampoline will never be out of style or will never not work for everyone, it's a classic that will never go out of style/time. It works and will always be fun and fast to use. I turn the music on and jump up on my Trampoline and the fun and exercise never stops being fun or working on keeping those extra pounds off! I Love it!!!
Turn The Music On and Have Fun Burning Calories
I own one of these mini trampolines along with various other pieces of exercise equipment in our home gym. The mini trampoline is a nice aerobic workout because bouncing really gets your heart rate going. When I exercise, I usually find some lively, upbeat, music and turn the volume up! Many times I have "bounced" and "danced" my stress away on my mini trampoline. It can be a lot of fun.

Great for kids !
This was purchased for a seven year old as a compromise to buying a regular, outdoor trampoline. It is a very durable product and stores easily in a small space. My son really likes burning off energy jumping on it and since it is only a few inches off the ground, there is no need to worry about safety. It seems to be indestructible and has gotten a lot of use. When other kids come to play at our house, they always want to give it a try too.

Well made product; fun to use
I bought this product for my 9 year old daughter and she loved it! We live in a condo and could not have a large outdoor trampoline, but this was a great alternative. It stores easily and is perfect for our limited space. The bouncing surface was a little more firm than we expected but became easier to use after a few weeks of getting used to and "breaking in." While it is primarily used indoors, it is sized right for bringing outdoors, too. My daughter loves that she can enjoy this year round, and I do too. It's perfect for burning off a little extra energy especially during cold or rainy days when outdoor play is limited.
I have used this product myself and have found it to be sturdy and well made. My only issue with it is that I have mis-stepped a few times and landed too close to the edge. Running in place and jumping straight up and down are fine for this piece but one needs to be careful with any side steps or jumping jack type movements.
Overall, a good product and a great value.

Although I hated this mini trampoline, I give it high ratings.
**Quick View**: I bought this thing when I was rehabbing my knee. My PT thought it would be much less demanding then other surfaces for me to exercise on and gave me a list of exercises to do. I hated it. When I stepped off, I felt like I was still bouncing and I didn't like how hard it was to get the thing to bounce. But I am still rating high for other reasons.
***About the Airzone 38" Mini Band Trampoline ***
Kids and adults can use this trampoline. I never was one for bouncing around but, when my knee was surgically repaired, my physical therapist suggested a mini trampoline or rebounder to do some exercises on which would challenge my balance and stamina while not putting extra wear and tear on my knee. This was crazy to assemble but, once it was together, I noticed that it was springless, using bands of webbing to give the bouncy affect. Apparently, the webbing is safer than springs. But it is also much harder to actually bounce on than springs. The trampoline is about 12 inches high and 38 inches around which is a bit larger than standard mini trampolines. It is well made and sits on thick rubber feet and sturdy metal legs. My issue was that I hated how it felt. As I said, I don't enjoy bouncing much and, after working out to a specially made DVD for me, I would step down and feel like I was still bouncing. Ever get off an elevator and feel like you're still moving? That is how I felt after using this thing. Plus, it is SO limited. There are just a handful of things you can do on it. Now, kids may have a ball jumping around on it but my youngest son was at the age where he should have enjoyed it but he played on it a few times and moved on.
It does fold for somewhat easier storage but that isn't an easy task and the unit is heavy. Because there are no springs, bouncing takes some effort and I think it did my knee no good to be on this surface. I should have bought a bouncier rebounder. Despite all this, this is a good mini trampoline and is made more safely than spring types. If you have a use for one, this is an inexpensive and decent choice. I just hated it because it made me feel weird and didn't bounce without taxing my knee - exactly what I was trying to avoid.
The** Airzone 38" Mini Band Trampoline** is a well made, large mini trampoline that is safer (in theory) than a spring one. For kids, this could be a fun thing, I suppose. At least if they fall off, they only fall 12 inches. For adults using this as a rebounder to exercise, it is passable. It is tough to get a good bounce going but otherwise, it does spring back well and challenge balance. I hated it for reasons that were not the fault of the unit so I am going with ***4 stars*** based on price, construction, size, and higher safety than a spring trampoline.
