Re: Do your kids use their trampoline?

We had one for YEARS. Finally got too beat down to use safely anymore. The kids have been begging for another one but our yard is too small!

Re: Do your kids use their trampoline?

We bought a small indoor one. I think it's technically for working out since it has a bar. DD uses it and so do I. I don't have a huge yard and since our weather is unpredictable I just wanted something small for indoors. I think it was worth the money.

Yes, but where we live it's very windy and we have to stake ours down into the ground. In the past we've had 2 blow away and get demolished.

Re: Do your kids use their trampoline?

Our boys are 7 and 3, and they got a 12' outdoor trampoline for Christmas. They do use it, but not every day. The main problem we deal with is that they want to be on it at the same time, but the trampoline warning says one person at a time (and I am paranoid about injury so I only allow one at a time). It also says not to put it under a tree, but the shade is really nice so we just have to sweep it off a lot. I'm glad we got it, it's fun to jump on and I think they use it enough that it was worth it.

My boys didn't use theirs everyday and after 1 year the mat broke down. It was going to cost close to $100 to replace it so we trashed it. My youngest has asked for a new one but I have refused. We bought them a swing set and they play on that every day unless the weather is bad.

Our kids LOVE our trampoline. They are on it all the time. They play so many games on it and especially love putting the sprinkler under it. It has gotten a lot of good use and provided a ton of fun. It was the best thing we have bought them!

We are on our third trampoline. We have lost 2 to storms. All 4 kids are on it daily along with DH. We have had one trampoline related injury but that didn't stop DD from getting back on when she was able to.

Re: Do your kids use their trampoline?

I dont have a trampoline for my gfs kids to use but i remeber the one i had. I loved that thing. I would use it evry day after school doing flips and jumping on it with a friend(i know the warning says no, but tbh you have to be rather careless to get hurt from it imo). I used to love jumping in the rain. Sadly insurance made us get rid of it and ive missed it ever since. It really is awesome exercise. I gained like 15 pounds over a couple months after it was gone lol.

Re: Do your kids use their trampoline?

I wasn't a huge fan of them for the longest time but after a year of our kids using our neighbors every chance they got, we finally broke down and bought the kids one around Easter time. They have YET to go a single day without playing on it. Even in the rain they'll go out and jump. I've caught them taking naps, camping, reading, doing homework, eating snacks on it. Best money we ever could have spent. Keeps them busy for hours at a time, they've learned to do tricks, and they surprisingly do not fight on it. Even my husband will get caught on it for a couple of hours.
