Buying an excellent trampoline for your kids


When buying a trampoline for your kids, there are a few features that you should pay attention to that will ensure you have made the right purchase. You also need to check out the Trampoline Gurus so you can see the reviews of the different brands.

Here are the factors that you should look into:

• Size

hgdyd4The size of the equipment is very important. There are two factors that will affect your choice regarding the size. The first thing to consider is how many places you have to keep the trampoline. If you have a large garden or yard, you can get one that is 8 to 15 feet big. You need to remember though that once it is placed in the yard, there should be enough of place to walk around it; it should not take up the whole yard so that there is no place for anything else. Also, who will be using it? There is no point buying an adult a children’s size.

• Frame

The frame is normally made up of galvanized steel. You should look for one that has a frame in which the galvanization has been done on the inside as well as the outside of the metal tubing. This will make it less vulnerable to rust, and therefore it will provide more protection. The powder coated ones are less expensive but have less protection too.

• Bounce Mat

The bounce mat that is spread onto the frame has to be strong and durable. It must also be smooth so as to not harm the kid’s skin if there is any contact with it. The PE or Permatron Polypropylene mats are UV rays proof and therefore will last longer even if kept under direct sun exposure. The polyester mats are the best.

• Number of Springs

The number of springs used will dictate the optimum bounce that is achieved by the device. That is why it is good to get the right number of springs. The right number is dependent on the weight of the kid. You can ask the supplier for advice if you have any problems.


• Shape

the shape of the device is not that important and can be based completely on the whim, but the round ones are primarily bought off the garden use, and the rectangular ones are used by professionals for their training purposes.

• Weight Limit

The weight limit of the trampoline is clearly defined by the manufacturer so when making your purchase sure to make a note of what its weight limit is and if tat number is sufficient for your use. Typically the limit is 100 kilograms or 16 stone.
