Gorilla Gym Reviews
Although the thought of playing outdoor games indoors may make some parents cringe, the reality is that some days kids just can’t go outside every day. Gorilla Gym offers a chance for kids to get playground fun indoors, and its reviews online are rather impressive, such as this 4.5 star rating on Amazon.
Installation is simple, and uses the same technology as simple exercise bars which have been around for decades. You simply put the Gorilla Gym in place and tighten. Although it isn’t promised to work on all doors, it does seem to accommodate the vast majority of door frames, and most consumers have reported that it installed without a hitch.
While Gorilla Gym may not be a complete substitute for outdoor play, it can be a great way to supplement it on rainy days or extreme weather. Those who live in apartments or condos may also find it beneficial.
While the adult option offers several functional exercises, you can find many exercise bars at a local sporting goods store for significantly less cost.
Perhaps one issue to consider is that it’s best to have something soft below the Gorilla Gym, especially when you have kids climbing a ladder – and inevitably falling off. Photos by consumers who own the product often show a mattress or pad on the floor underneath their Gorilla Gyms. Another area of concern could be the swing, if it is used by an overly-rambunctious child who may want to touch his feet on the ceiling or see how far he can jump.
As noted above, there are countless exercise bars on the market for adults. There is also a similar line product line for kids called Rainy Day by Playaway Toy Company, which includes a trapeze and swing.
Gorilla Gym is a great way to bring playground-style fun indoors. Keeping a close eye on rambunctious kids and a little padding on the ground below will ensure maximum fun. We’d skip the adult package for less expensive competing products. Overall we find it to be a well-made and worthwhile product.
