​Finding The Best Toddler Trampoline That Your Child Will Love

As kids, many of us remember flying through the air with the greatest of ease. No, we’re not talking about our (extremely brief) soiree into acrobatics, but rather our fond memories playing out with our friends, bouncing up and down on trampolines.

There is just something so thrilling about a trampoline as a kid and it’s an experience every little one should have! That’s why we’re presenting you with the ultimate guide for buying the  best toddler trampoline for your little one.

Although a good time, many parents worry about the safety of trampolines for their young ones – we hear you! When used in the wrong manner, trampolines certainly can present a major safety hazard. From broken springs to the worn-out material, trampolines weren’t always the safest. But times have changed and our young ones no longer need to deal with many of the less-than-perfect trampolines of the older generation.

Short on Space? Get the Folding Activity Center 3-in-1 Trampoline

In reality, there are two good reasons why you might opt for a  kids folding trampoline versus a standard toddler trampoline: 1) You’re short on space, 2) you travel a lot, or 3) you’re a neat freak.

Perhaps you and your growing family live in a small apartment in the city. In those situations, the last thing you want taking up precious square footage is your child’s trampoline. Or perhaps you’ve set up the toddler trampoline outside but you have a small backyard. In both instances, it’ll be nice to pack it up to make more use of the limited space.

Additionally, if your family is always on the go, your child may be fun to bringing the trampoline along. In this case, being able to fold the toddler trampoline with handle will come in handy and gives you a chance to keep your little one entertained with the ball pit or trampoline.

The last reason you may want a folding toddler trampoline is if you’re a neat freak and are picky about things looking a certain way. While the smart trike 3 in 1 Trampoline Activity Center is definitely not a sight for sore eyes, it’s also not inconspicuous. So if you like things to match in every room, buying the folding option makes more sense.

Guide to Buying a Toddler Trampoline

Although trampolines have been around for decades, their design and function have undergone many changes. Now that there are so many new options for  small trampolines, it is important to do the research and choose the right one for your youngster.

The size, quality, and placement of your child’s toddler trampoline are among the most important factors when choosing which trampoline to purchase.

Size Matters

When deciding on the placement of your new toddler trampoline, of course the size of the product will impact where you’ll place your child’s new favorite toy.

If you’re using it as a toddler indoor trampoline, you’ll want to make sure there’s plenty of space around where there’s no chance of bumping their head while jumping. Also, it’s best that the trampoline is in a carpeted area -- just in case.

Be advised that when using it as a toddler outdoor trampoline, place it away from anything that could interfere with its use or pose a danger -- such as tree limbs. And choose a grassy area away from any cemented surfaces.

Bounce Indoors or Outdoors -- or Both!

Because of its durability, the smarTrike trampoline has the ability to be used safely outdoors without the fear or sun or heat damage. In colder weather, the smarTrike toddler trampoline can be easily folded and transferred inside.
