  • i always said no because i work in x-ray and have seen countless injuries requiring surgery do to trampolines, but my husband bought one for my daughter (8) this past summer. I am just extremely careful about it.

  • I broke my arm on one when I was 8 jumping on it with my step father you landed at just the right time to bounce me up way to high. Lost my balance and came down landing directly on my arm in the middle of the trampoline. They are a ton of fun but dangerous.

  • We have one and my kids are 2 & 4. We would never have bought it (couldn't have afforded it for one) but it was given to us and the kids love it.

  • My kids are 6, 6, and 2. We're planning on buying one for their "big" present for Christmas. They can be dangerous but as long as you keep a good eye out on them they're fine. My kids LOVE to jump on them and it can be good exercise for them also!

  • Absolutely!!! Tons of fun with equal supervision. I got Hubby up on one a night a few summers ago so don't think the fun is all for the kids LMAO

  • we've thought about getting one for our kids (6/2) but we've decided to go a different route and for the first time we're going to get them a big combined present for their birthday (it's the same day......that's how it works out to do that!....lol).....we're getting them a bounce house.....it still has the same potential for danger as the trampoline but they're both so much fun!.....lol...i think as long as they are supervised things like that are fine....granted....accidents can still happen....but they can get hurt just as bad on a bike or roller skates.....i think it's the size that makes people question it
