Buying a Trampoline
Whether buying a mini trampoline for little kids or a much larger trampoline for the whole family to enjoy, there is plenty to think about when buying a trampoline. One of the first things to consider is size. Trampolines come in a range of sizes. You can buy a smaller 10ft trampoline , or opt for a larger one that reaches upwards of 16ft. A trampoline 12ft in size can be the perfect option for many families, as it's not too big, and not too small, with heaps of bouncing space for bigger kids - and adults - to play on.
When deciding on the size of the trampoline, it's also a good idea to take into consideration the size of the backyard. Before buying a trampoline, first measure the space available to avoid disappointment when that shiny package arrives. The trampoline should be placed on level ground, with plenty of space above and around it. It should sit on soft, level ground (but not so soft that it sinks), away from swimming pools and ponds.
Things To Think About
Aside from the size of the trampoline, there are other factors to take into consideration. When it comes to kids playing, it's essential that they remain safe. Ensure the trampoline meets safety standards - and if buying used, make sure it is in good condition so that it's still safe. The trampoline should have a safety net that remains closed when in use, and the trampoline springs should be covered with safety matting. Or, for an even safer option, consider springless trampolines . Then, if it meets requirements, it's time to think about the aesthetics. What colour is the trampoline? What does it look like? What accessories does it offer? Check out trampolines with additional features, such as basketball hoops for added functionality.
