How to choose a trampoline for children?
The garden trampoline is the perfect gift for a child, ideal for spring and summer. It provides not only the great entertainment that children enjoy, but also the necessary portion of physical activities in the fresh air, which are an extremely important factor in the development of young people.
In recent years, garden trampolines have become extremely popular around the world and, like garden pools, have become increasingly part of family garden equipment. They enjoy the constant interest of children and allow them to see what everyone dreams of - free flying and the feeling of a super hero - all in their own yard! Therefore, parents are increasingly choosing to buy a garden pool or trampoline to give their children maximum fun.
Spring is the best time to give your child a garden trampoline. It's worth seeing what fun this fantastic fun can be!
Types of garden trampolines
Among the garden trampolines you will find both those with a safety net and those without additional protection. The first are designed for the youngest lovers of carefree entertainment and we will focus on them, leaving unprotected trampolines to older and physically fit users. The biggest differences between garden trampolines for children are related to the different way of fixing the net. So let's take a look at these differences.
Trampoline with internal network
The way the net is attached affects the way the child plays. Jumping on a garden trampoline with an internal net is fun in a smaller space, even if the diameter of the jumping area is the same as on a trampoline with an external net. The inner net naturally restricts and controls the child's movements, thus preventing the child from falling over the outer edge of the trampoline (i.e. the elastic pad on which he jumps). Thanks to the fact that the net is closer to the child, it will naturally play calmer and more carefully in the central part of the mat, so you can be sure that the child is 100% safe. Garden trampolines with an internal net are designed primarily for children from 2 to 4 years. A child at this age requires special attention and care for their safety.
However, for a child older than 4 years, it is best to buy a garden trampoline with an external network. It offers a slightly different kind of entertainment. This trampoline model offers more space to play. The outer net is farther away from the jumping child so that she does not have as limited a space to move as her younger friend. Greater freedom also brings him more joy and satisfaction from playing. In both cases, however, the diameter of the trampoline is the same - only the field in which the child plays is different.
