TP227 Genius Octagonal SurroundSafe™ 10ft Trampoline
Great build quality, safe and fun
Having seen various trampolines at friends and family homes, I have to say that this has to be the best by far. Instructions are good. Read them before you build. Took a friends and I, 2 hours including making a minor error.
Tip1: do not tighten frame fully when assembling. Build the frame, give it a jiggle so that all the feet are firmly on the ground (even on uneven ground). Then tighten.
Tip2: might not be obvious but the 2 tie wraps you use to help you feed the long string between net and base mat. Make sure you align the net and base octagonal corners and then feed string thru alternating between net and mat.
Tip3: we purchased the 10' trampoline. With the legs is quite big. Having a big garden this is not an issue for us, however you can get full measurements from TP Toys website.
Q. Why buy from John Lewis?
A. Peace of mind. Trusted retailer. No quibbles. 2 deliver drivers dropped of 3 big boxes to where we were to build in garden. Also gave an additional tip to stretch base mat starting at 3,6,9,12 position. Makes life to easy when you know how.
I also emailed TP Toys twice and not a single reply.
Might be slightly more pricer than others but there again it is super safe and excellent build quality. Made to last. Need any help or more info then please contact me and I will surely reply and help where possible.
Most of all. Hope the kids enjoy it. My 2 LOVE it.

Very good trampoline
I ended up buying this directly from the manufacturer as they provided next day delivery service + price match as we needed it urgently! It took my husband and I over 3 hours to set up! Of course we are not good or experienced in DIY! I was glad it took us as long, as it just meant there were additional fitting thus increasing the safety of the trampoline! I had spent considerable amount of time researching on each aspect of trampolines and I was glad that each component is made to a high standard - well protected springs, the jumping base and net seem to be made of high quality material as well. The only thing I would say is if the springs and connectors were glavanised it would be perfect! As these tend to rust and if galvanised they could last for upto 15 years!! But then businesses wouldn't survive if products lasted that long, right?!
Kids loved it but then they love trampolines! Great for my husband and I too due to the higher weight limit! Glad that it can stand even on bumpy ground as that means we don't need to worry about what kind of garden our next house will have!!

Great trampoline - huge problem getting spare parts though!
Great trampoline. Kids loved it and I was very happy that they seemed so safe in it. However the Surroundsafe got damaged in a storm and needed to get a few spare parts. Initially I was not worried because I thought TP was a reliable company and being endorsed by John Lewis I thought I would have no problems with this. However I was quickly proved wrong. I have been waiting on these parts since the beginning of May. It seems they are on a boat from China and there are still no sign of them. The were originally due in June, then July and now August. I am beginning to wondering if they will ever arrive.

The top part of the trampoline that the netting hangs from is very difficult to put together and has come loose on a number of occasions. Otherwise the kids love it!!

A Great product! Our 5 year old loves it and it's strong enough for me (dad) to go on with him. When his friends comeover for playdates it's the a big hit.
So much better than buying lots of plastic toys that only get played with once. Well priced and easy to assemble.
