My daughter would have had one at 12 months except we hadn't found a house yet! I think it depends on the child and how active they are.
Try taking your LO to the park and seeing what he/she likes to play on and find something that works for your budget with those things.
My grandfather is making my daughter an aluminum one from scratch, I can't wait until it's finished! He was joking it was going to be so big you'd see it from the front of the house... Oh boy! Maybe I should have stuck with a store bought one... ;)
