How to pick the right trampoline for playtime…
Finding the right trampoline for your child is the key to playtime bliss. Trampolines provide a vertical play space, meaning even small city gardens can still enjoy active play!
Plum Springsafe® trampolines are a great solution to get kids outside and active, making garden play fun all year round. Our trampolines combine innovative safety features with cutting edge technology and unique designs. The Plum® Junior Trampoline range is perfect for little jumpers, helping them to build confidence for years of play. Our bestselling Classic Trampolines and our Premium Trampolines provide a bigger bounce for jumpers over 6 years old.
Each bouncer will have different requirements which will influence your choice, so check out our trampoline buying guide for more information.
We often get asked the question Are trampolines dangerous?
Our design team are committed to ensuring each and every Plum® product is safe for your little one. Our Springsafe® technology ensures users are out of reach of the springs, making Plum® trampolines a safe choice! However, to ensure your aspiring acrobats or junior jumpers are safe, do not allow them to perform any tricks outside of their ability. We know children like to take fun to the max, but remember to play safe!
Always remember #oneatatime when bouncing with friends and family
According to RoSPA, 60% of injuries that occur on trampolines are due to more than one bouncer! Ensure your little one is always supervised by a responsible adult and locate your trampoline in a safe place. Take a look at the Plum® guide to safe trampolining, which shows a full list of do’s and don’ts to keep your little one safe.
Making sure your child has the correct trampoline for their age
Plum® has trampolines for all ages ranging in size from 4.5ft for little bouncers to 14ft for experienced acrobats. The Plum® junior trampoline range is a perfect choice for beginner bouncers and can fit perfectly into small garden spaces.
Our larger trampolines are ideal for older children and adults ensuring a bigger bouncing space and a bigger bounce!
The Plum® 4.5ft Trampolines are an ideal first trampoline for little jumpers aged 3-6, while the 6ft and 7ft trampolines are recommended for children aged 3-9 years old. The Junior Trampoline range are designed for little ones to be safe whilst bouncing by having a lower height frame and shorter springs, giving a softer and more predictable bounce. Our 8ft Classic and Premium Trampolines are ideal for children aged 6-12 years old while the 10ft plus trampolines are a favourite for any children or adults over 6 years old.
A common question is Will my trampoline be safe in the winter or bad weather?
Kids love to play in all weathers, but we would recommend moving your trampoline in windy conditions to a sheltered area. To prevent the trampoline blowing away, remove the enclosure and secure the trampoline to the ground using our trampoline anchor kit.
During the cold winter months, we would advise you to dismantle your trampoline and tuck it away for winter to prevent rust and damage to the frame, springs and enclosure. Looking after your trampoline will allow years of play.
