I really want this... it's perfect for a huge awkward empty space in my basement.... but it's not going to happy at almost $500. Why is it so much!?!?!? http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2781639&CAWELAID=107512480

  • You should be able to find something similar at a second hand shop, garage sales, on Craigslist, etc.

  • You are paying for the name on this one. Kettler is very durable, but unless you are wanting this for an heirloom piece, or you are planning a very large family, most of the other brands will be fine. By the time the warranty is up, the kids are usually tired of it anyway.


    How old are your kiddos? Our basement is basically a large playroom, with our exercise equipment in one corner. We have a built in entertainment center, a bounce house, a tent playhouse with tunnels, a sectional for adult seating and lots of floor pillows and bean bag animals to sit on.


    Also, is your basement finished and do you or would you spend time down there?
