There is no wrong/right answer to this question; however most manufacturers would say that children should not jump on a full-sized trampoline until they are 6. They say this because after undergoing studies of children on trampolines, it has been discovered that children under the age of 6 have the highest injury rates.

They can always jump on smaller child-sized trampolines.

Trampoline safety tips


According to the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons
there are over 300,000 trampoline related injuries every year in the United
States. Many of these accidents are
caused by carelessness and a large percentage can be avoided with a few simple
precautions.



Buy padding to cover the springs, hooks and
frame of the trampoline; look for pads that are of a contrasting color to the
mat of the trampoline


Use something to cushion the surrounding area of
the trampoline - as well as underneath


Do not allow any children under the age of 6 to
jump on the trampoline


Institute a "one-at-a-time" rule for jumping


Ensure children are supervised at all times


Set up your trampoline away from structures,
trees or other play areas


Take a moment to inspect the trampoline prior to
every use


Remember, you can never be too safe when dealing with a
trampoline. Use these basic prevention
methods and talk with your children about exercising caution when jumping on
the trampoline.

Can you jump on trampolines when it is raining or is it dangerous?


Jumping on a trampoline in the rain can be really dangerous as it's very slippery. Also the rain can damage the trampoline, so a rain cover is a good idea especially if you live in a very rainy country.

How big a trampoline should I buy?


What trampoline to buy depends on lots of variables. The , age and weight of the users are the main factors along with the amount of space you have to put the trampoline. But my advice is also to think to the future a bit. We bought a trampoline for our younger kids and they grew out of it really fast and we had to sell it. I came across a great breakdown of trampoline s that you should take a look at on the trampoline web and warehouse site. http://www.trampolinewebandwarehouse.com/what--trampoline
