Do you have enough space in your yard?
If you don’t have enough space in your yard then you’ll run into the problem of the trampoline not properly fitting. We recommend that you have at least 3 yards of space around where your trampoline will be placed, and it’s also imperative that the ground around the trampoline is completely flat as well.
If the ground is not flat enough then you will have to worry about the legs possibly falling out, which could easily cause the trampoline to collapse and injure whoever’s jumping on it. You also want to make sure that there is nothing directly overhead of the trampoline that your kids could end up hitting.
Are your children old enough?
If your children are too young then they may have trouble jumping on a trampoline. We found that kids under the age of 8 often don’t have strong enough legs to properly hold themselves up. Of course your children could always be different so you may want to have them test out a trampoline first before you buy one.
Should you buy a model with a safety enclosure?
If you’re worried about your kids falling off the side of the trampoline then you should definitely consider buying a safety enclosure. This may share read consumer reviews first as many brands don’t have as good of a safety enclosure as others. The particular brands we’ve found to be best would have to be JumpSport, but SpringFree is really good as well
How big of a trampoline do you need?
One of the major problems parents have when buying a trampoline is deciding on the right size to buy. To make it easy for you, if your children are over the age of 13 then you’re going to need a trampoline that at least 14 feet or larger. On the other hand, if your kids are still below their teenager years then a 12 foot trampoline would certainly fit them well. Any smaller of a trampoline should only be bought for kids under 10 years of age.
Where to buy a trampoline?
Now that you know exactly what kind of trampoline you want to buy, you need to decide where to buy your trampoline from. We recommend that you check your local sells papers often to see if anything pops up, but if not then you will definitely get a better deal by shopping online. In addition, even if you find a trampoline that is on sale at your local discount store, this doesn’t mean you should buy it right away. Make sure to check the price and read consumer reviews online to see if you’re really getting a good deal.
