We were on the fence about purchasing this item due to the price, but finally agreed -- and thank goodness! So far since purchasing this last month, we have used it 3 weekends in a row and the kids did not get bored. It entertained 4 boys (ages 11-3) for literally hours. It is self contained, multileveled with an internal slide and catwalk. Very fun. The product is a little heavy, but I am 5'3" and manage to fold it up and put it in the storage bag myself and roll it into the house. This is better than a trampoline and more fun.
