The Story - Gary Wakerley
Gary has been involved in the Caravan Park industry across several platforms for 28 years. In 2005 he launched the Jumping Pillow product in the USA, Canada and South America. Along the way he gained exposure and developed expertise in other major sectors such as Farm-Tourism, the Resort Industry and the Indoor Family Entertainment sector.
It only took a few years before major aspects of the product surfaced as less than ideal, and he set about engineering changes to affect the life of the product and the safety of the product. The implementation of those changes proved difficult and were all rejected by the owners of the Jumping Pillow brand.
In 2010 he discarded the Jumping Pillow brand and launched the Kangaroo Jumper brand incorporating ALL of the longevity and safety improvements into the new product.
The Kangaroo Jumper quickly became and still is the market leader throughout the America’s.
In 2015 he appointed an Australian distributor for the product, the distributor and subsequent distributors failed to uphold the Integrity of the brand and in 2018 he sold the American company in order to personally take the reins of the Australian distribution.
The timing was not kind as Covid followed by Bush Fires followed by Floods impeded progress into the Australian market. With all of that behind us we’re now making strides across Australia in getting the message out. That message is quite simple – The Kangaroo Jumper is the safest playground jumping product on the market ‘period’.
