How can you 'The Potential
Client' make an Informed Decision when 'TRUTH' is hard to come
It is our contention
that this company derives it's sales largely through blatant
untruths and misleading information found throughout their
web site. The product in question is the Jumping Pillow which
is distributed by Con Elfes. In fairness to Mr. Elfes though,
he has no knowledge of the product or the Industries and relies
on information fed to him by the Jumping Pillow owners in Australia.
Read No Further if Honesty
The main claim is that this is the 'original' Jumping Pillow
which is not true as the original Jumping Pillow in the USA market
evolved into the now vastly improved 'Kangaroo Jumper'. They
simply took over the name from the owners of the logo who are
the owners of Jumping Pillows Australia and their business here
in the USA is built on the relationship with that Australian
company. It may be fair to say that it is the original
seeing as it is based on the original Australian Jumping
Pillow! The original USA Jumping Pillow is now the Kangaroo Jumper.
Are you dealing with the Original Supplier in the USA - NO!
Fact: The owner of the
company has no installation experience what-so-ever, installations
in 2013 were carried out by a previous employee of the Kangaroo
Jumper company and he will not be back in 2014 as is our understanding.
Blurb from their web
Jumping Pillow® was brilliantly designed in Denmark over
25 years ago and has been engineered for the safety of its user.
Our inflatable trampoline and its method of installation is the
only one in the US market that follows the well respected TUV
Certification standards which was first obtained by the Danish
inventor. We carry a 5 year pro-rated warranty on our product
and provide the highest quality PVC fabric available in the market.
Our newly developed material provides a much longer wear factor
and is treated with the highest UV protection which prevents
early fading of its surface.
What an interesting
statement. Here are the facts: There is not and has never been
a Jumping Pillow in Europe, the original product is the now Blaabjerg
Trampoline. They would have you believe that there is some kind
of Aura around the name 'Jumping Pillow'. Every product
on the market is an interpretation of the original, some improved
and some just the same as the original.
TUV Certification is
a European standard not relevant here in the USA. In the USA
our standards body is ASTM. ASTM do not have a standard for a
commercial 'Constant Air Inflatable'. The closest is a standard
for 'Constant Air Inflatable for Home Use'. All products on the
market here in the USA far and exceed that non relevant ASTM
standard. All products would also qualify for the TUV certification
if it were relevant.
If their material was
the best in the world then their warranty would also be the best
and not be pro-rated, for instance the 'Kangaroo Jumper' 5 year
warranty is unconditional. I claim that the Kangaroo Jumper is
produced from the best material in the world so someone has to
be blatantly misleading the market! If their warranty was unconditional
then I might believe them.
Fact: When you buy a
Jumping Pillow in the USA. A royalty goes overseas to both Australia
and Denmark, if you buy any other product - it doesn't!
Because the Kangaroo
Jumper is (and always has been) the market leader and is a demonstratably
a far superior product, competitors seem to misslead and sometimes
blantly lie about their product in order that their product warrants
I stand behind anything
you read on this entire web site as being absolute truth and
anyone who can point out anything misleading will be thanked
for doing so and adjustments will be made immediately. You might
not like what is said here or the way it is said but I simply
don't know another way to tell truth. This Jumping Pillow operation
is acting unconscionably (possibly unknowingly?) and I would
have no issue with them if they simply told the truth.
