For busybody kids, nothing beats a good, springy kids trampoline to help them get out pent-up energy. Trampolines are a cool and safe outdoor toy (or indoor toy depending on the size) for kids of all ages. There are even miniature bouncers for toddlers. There are several benefits to owning a trampoline (to exercise or have fun in a safe environment) but, what is also important to consider when buying a trampoline, is whether it meets all of your needs. Fortunately, there are different types of trampoline in varying sizes, shapes and bounces. With so much variety, finding your ideal children’s trampoline can be a difficult task. As a guide, we’ve put together our list of our five top trampolines for 2018.

And, importantly, it’s completely kid-proofed so even clumsy tots come away every time bruise-free. There’s a stabilisation bar for children to cling to while they bounce and lots of soft padding around the base. And, given its compact, lightweight construction, this can be used indoors too.

TP 10ft Genius Round Trampoline

This brand new 10ft trampoline from TP Toys includes lots of safety technology without dampening the entertainment factor. Just looking at it you can see how TP have improved on their original design to make round trampoline that looks as good as it plays. TP have introduced their latest door entry system – the IGLOO door entry. The zip-free, crawl-through entry is basically like the tunnel entrance of an igloo and allows for safe entry and also keeps jumpers safely inside. Surrounding the trampoline is the SurroundSafe enclosure too. The concave shape keeps users away from the springs while they bounce. There’s also an additional enclosure layer outside of this one to protect children outside from the springs too and, of course, soft-touch foam and PVC cover the springs. Notably, this trampoline – being a larger model – is higher from the ground than the previous childrens trampolines we’ve looked at. This means that this trampoline is suitable for users aged 6 and up, but it comes with a ladder for easy access.

  • Dimensions: 305 x 305 x 246cm (LxWxH)
  • Max User Weight: 105kg
