My youngest kids keep pestering for one........they are too old now ( 14 & 15 ).

I love my garden and am not prepared to have such a ghastly object stuck in it.

Bet they are fun though

I do love to see the kids enjoying themselves, even the adults, its not the bounce, bounce bounce that gets me, its the constant screaming, sorry am I being an old nag XX..

I'd far rather my girls went out and bounced on the trampoline than be sat on the computer non stop or worse ask to be let on their own to the park.......that day is coming soon and I'm dreading it!!! I'd happily have 5 trampolines in the garden as long as I know they are safe xx

I did have a go on a friend's kiddies one, big one with safety net all round but I must have looked so funny, like an elephant trying to keep it's feet lol

I think tenas are the order of the day for us older ladies lol

Guilty as charged. 14 Foot one with safety enclosure and do admit to having the odd go myself.

They're fantastic!

We're always going on about our children being a Nation of couch potatoes, and this is just what they need. My only regret is that I bought an 8ft one for my son, as our garden at the time was so small, then we moved and we've now go a MASSIVE garden, I wished we'd waited.

Mind you, it goes well with our 10ft pool, which can both be seen on Google maps....!

My OH in his 70's and would love to have a go on one, but none of the kids have them.

My girls love ours but sadly its been taken down now and replaced with a pool garden not large enough for both.
