My daughter uses it more than my son, she is in gymnastics and loves to practice on it. My son likes it but would prefer more low key things which is typical of him as he is kind of a play by himself quiet kid.
It was a huge novelty in the beginning and it was all they did when they were home, the interest tapered off a bit but I would say it gets used at least 5 times a week for hours each day.
We live in a Northern climate so it will be put away for the winter which should bring back the newness in the spring

It kind of ebbs and flows, but my kids do love theirs. There are months where they are on it every.single.day. Then there are some weeks where it may not get used at all. But all in all we love it and it has been well worth the money.

Re: Do your kids use their trampoline?

When I was in junior high one of our neighbors had a trampoline - they dug a big hole in their yard and had it at ground level. It was awesome! Dh is very opposed to trampolines and we don't have a big enough yard for it but I always thought that was a cool way to do the trampoline.

I'd double check with tour homeowners insurance. Some don't cover you if you have an outdoor trampoline. If they do your rates may go up. It's a high hazard. Just like pools

*my mom and gpa were insurance agents so that's how I know

We had to get rid of ours when we moved but they used it everyday.

Do your kids use theirs, or was it just a temporary novelty?
All day, every day. After wearing out the first one (given to us a few years ago used) we bought a new (to them) one at a garage sale early this Summer then a new top for it about a month later. At 2.5 he's a wee bit too young for it yet but in another year he'll love it.
