Indoor/outdoor toddler trampoline... Worth it? Good brand?

I'm thinking about getting DS a toddler trampoline for his 2nd birthday. I also plan to get him a dump truck. DH wants to get him t-ball. We are requesting no gifts from other people, so that will be his big birthday...

So, is a trampoline worth it? He seems to like jumping on the one at daycare, but it has no "spring" to it. So, he's just jumping on a net there, haha. He's VERY active & I'm mostly looking for something to burn energy in the winter.

Experiences, please, and recommendations if you have them! TIA!

My kids (4 and 2) got a mini trampoline for Christmas. It was $30 and is just a little round thing for exercising supposedly. But it works for them, we play with it inside and outside.

Re: Indoor/outdoor toddler trampoline... Worth it? Good brand?

this is a good thread - I have been debating this for months. I want a full size one so that we can jump together, but it's a lot of money if she doesn't go for it.

The little ones that I've seen are practically the same price or about half and just don't seem worth it if I can't jump with her.

I am still very much on the fence about it. We were in a bouncy house the other day jumping together and she loved holding my hands and bouncing with me. And it was killing my thighs, making me believe I really do need one so that I can get my thighs in better shape

Does the little Tykes hold up?? is it the larger outdoor one with the net? I really need on I can bring inside, because we have a very hilly backyard--no flat place for an outdoor trampoline.

It is this one:

If your house is big enough, you can absolutely use it inside. We bought two different bounce houses and they both burst within a week (one was the little tykes). So, this was the best option for us. So far so good but we've only had it about 2 months.
