Round trampolines come in all sizes from 3 feet in diameter up to 16 feet. Depending on your child's age and what kind of function you would like your trampoline to serve plays an important part of what size of trampoline you should invest in. If you just want a functional trampoline for your child to jump up and down on to get out some energy then a smaller trampoline would be a great way to start out on, but if you want something catered to more of the older age child then a larger trampoline would be a wise investment.
We bought a 12 foot in diameter trampoline which is very functional for all of our 5 children. With a 12 foot trampoline our kids have plenty of room to jump and bounce. Our children can now be sent outside full of energy and come back in exhausted and wore out. What parent wouldn't want that? There kids to be exhausted, wore our and ready for bed.
All kinds of people use trampolines besides children; athletes, gymnasts and cheerleaders use them for training purposes. Kids and adults of all ages use them just for fun and exercise.
There are some safety precautions that come with owning a trampoline. The first thing you need to make sure is that your trampoline is on level ground and if you have younger children it would be a wise investment to purchase an enclosure for your trampoline. The enclosure provides some safety for your children which allow them to stay inside the trampoline while jumping around having fun.
A trampoline is an investment for kids of all ages in time it will pay for itself. Ours was purchased almost a year ago and unless it is raining our kids are jumping on it. If you have a child with energy then a trampoline will make for a good investment.
