Trampolines offer classic backyard fun for kids of any ages. Even a smaller model can be a significant investment, so it’s important to consider all factors when selecting the best trampoline for you and your family.
The right size and shape depends largely on your yard and the age of the jumpers. While younger children may be content with a smaller 8-foot trampoline, you will want a bigger model for preteens or teenagers. Different shapes allow for varying amounts of space and bounce, with rectangular trampolines offering the most space and bounce, making them the best choice for gymnastics. A safety enclosure can prevent injuries, as can soft-edge trampolines, which don’t have springs.
These factors, in addition to considerations like assembly and durability, should be weighed carefully when purchasing a trampoline. If you are ready to pick out a model, take a look at our top choices.
