Jungle Jumparoo and Jumbo Jumper are they just junk?

We have all seen the commercials and pics of them floating around on social media, but are they really just junk?

We received a Jumbo Jumper and Junior Jumper from the b4 adventure company. We were excited to receive them for review. Unfortunately they turned out to be a big disappointment.

First off, the screws for the Junior Jumper were the wrong size. Most of the screws literally did not fit into the holes, the rest of them were too short to even reach the bolts that attached them on the other end. We ran into a lot of the same issues with the Jumbo Jumper. I even reached out to the owner of the company 4 times. No response. We got the Jumbo Jumper assembled the best that we could. The Junior Jumper was unfortunately a lost cause. I even had some expert builders that I know try to assemble both the Junior Jumper and Jumbo Jumper, they had a very hard time. The Jumbo Jumper started falling apart the first day of use.  I provided photos below in a collage. It's pretty sad, screws fell out and the bars fell to the sides. The Jumbo Jumper and Junior Jumper are both literally flimsy junk. What a HUGE disappointment. 

I have a strong feeling that the Jungle Jumparoo is just as bad. Both seem to have very similar construction. Both are high priced. Both seem like they could be just as flimsy as the other.  The Jungle Jumparoo has a much higher price that the Jumbo Jumper by b4 adventure. Then you have to buy the expensive cover to protect the black jumping tube from being damaged, it is not even included.  The Jumbo Jumper and Junior Jumper do not even offer protective accessories, like their competitor Jungle Jumparoo.  I have no experience with the Jungle Jumparoo. None of the children in our homeschool group have one. None of our neighbors have one, and no one we know in the United States has one. It would be great to test one with our homeschool group, but the Jungle Jumparoo company only sends Jungle Jumparoos for review to bloggers with big numbers on Facebook like the Play at Home Moms. They sent each of the three Play at Home Moms one for their kids, and have allowed them to do like 5 or 6 different giveaways. It would be nice if the Jungle Jumparoo company would expand their audience and let someone like me with big numbers on Pinterest do a review on the Jungle Jumparoo. I guess the Jungle Jumparoo company must be against homeschoolers.  Oh well.
