Exactly, run into that stuff all the time. Was reading reviews on a trampoline and people were trashing it because it blew over in a wind storm. Hello, there is big warnings on the box, directions, etc. LOL buy the anchors.

fyi, i had the same trampoline you saw the reviews for. mine blew over TWICE last year on christmas eve and was destroyed. i only had had it for about 7 months. crazy thing was, all my neighbors had trampolines that weren't anchored and mine was the only one that blew away!! the kids still say the reindeer should have been more careful!!! lmao!:cheesy:

ROFLMBO! I just don't know what to say... when I read littlebundle's post I thought, "Who the heck would write a bad review for something because the WIND blew it over?!?" But after reading Krissy's post... maybe there is something about the trampoline that makes it prone to flight???

"Prone to flight" ROFL I like it. Maybe, the reindeer had too much rum in their eggnog? Seriously, so sorry that your trampoline was destroyed. At least I know now why people were complaining, and fwiw we ended up getting no trampoline, will wait a few more years for that.

Can someone please explain to me how to post a picture of an item that I'm posting about without saving the picture to my computer and uploading it to a picture hosting service? I assume there is a much easier way to do this, I just have no idea what it is!

Thanks in advance for any help!


Right click on the photo you want, go to properties and copy the URL for it. Then come here, click on the yellow square with the mountain and paste your URL there.

Wow, I really thought we'd be seeing some great sales this past weekend. :( I'm really starting to get worried that Amazon's not gonna do very well this year. I know I get excited and antsy and tell myself to be patient, but I don't know..... I'm still hoping!

Looking over my orders from last year, the bulk was from the 9th to the 15th. I even had two I ordered on the 23rd. So I am still holding out....

I spent 30$ a pop x3 buying this game for each set of cousins last year. Club Penguin is a social networking site for the 4-12 yer old crowd (my daughters had a penguin since she was 3 and my son started his penguin when he was 6 soon after the site was launched.) It is now owned by Disney, hence all the marketing. The game is a good one. It is essentially what many think to be the best part of CP (club penguin) which is the missions. After playing the DS game your kids may want to join CP which is free and fun. You only pay if you chose to become a member which allows you to buy clothes and furniture with your CP money which you earn on the site. The game is a good buy, we were penguins but not members for the first 2 years and have been paying members for the last two (membership is about 5$ per month per penguin.) I'd say go for it as I would be if we didn't already have it. Don't buy the DS game unless your kid can read...there is a lot of reading. The website can be done before reading but not so much the DS game. Definitely girl and boy, maybe even more girl oriented.

Thank you so much! I kept on overlooking that button b/c I thought that they were just saying that they had top holiday deals. I was used to clicking up on the top right.
