I was at a kids birthday party with a trampoline. The birthday kid wasn't allowed to use the trampoline while the other kids were present to give the other kids a turn to use it. The father said he never seemed interested in bouncing in it any other days so what's the big deal.
I felt sad :(. Of course its more fun bouncing with a bunch of kids than it is being just you.

I"ve seen that done before, as a matter of fact, my own children have been like that.  They never wanted anything to do with a toy, until someone else began playing with it, then, all of a sudden, it was their favorite toy.  It would make me so mad.  I don't totally blame the Dad for doing that.  If they kid is never interested in it, then why can't the other kids play on it?  Now...I would allow my kids to have a chance to play on it, and not keep them off of it, the entire time.  JMO.

I understand with a toy but something like a trampoline is meant to be enjoyed by a group. I probably wouldn't use it on my own either

Aw. A trampoline is way more fun when you have someone else to jump with. Poor kid.

That was unnecessary. He probably ruined the kid's birthday
