There are fewer more exciting activities for kids than jumping on a trampoline. There’s something so freeing about bouncing up and down. Even adults enjoy it. Trampolines are also pretty rare in a child’s life. They appear at friend’s houses and the occasional birthday party. They’re basically the unicorns of your children’s world. Kids take every possible opportunity to jump on a trampoline, because they know it’s a rare opportunity. Trampolines aren’t just fun and games though, they’re a great way for your kids to get some exercise. They’re said to increase muscle strength, help with bone health and promote heart function. Trampolines are even good for you—the parent—too. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) said that 20 minutes of bouncing around on the trampoline is as good for you as running is.
If you’re thinking about making your children’s dreams come true and bringing home a trampoline, you should make sure it’s the best kids trampoline that you can find. We found three trampolines that fit the bill. There are two mini-trampoline options that can be used indoors or outdoors. We found one larger enclosed option that makes for a great addition to your backyard.
