The first trampoline was built in 1936 by George Nissen in his garage. The name trampoline comes from the Spanish word “El Trampolin” which means diving board

Did you know that NASA has described it as the most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man?

I know people who have gotten this for their kids, and they are so fun to have. It's a great way to get out a lot energy that some kids tend to have. You have to be careful with these things though.

I started to buy my kids one of these for christmas and thought about their safety. I do not think that my 3 year old would be safe on one of these.

I had one of these when I was a kid, it was a lot of fun but I hurt myself many times. I broke my arm, and my friends cut themselves.

We use to have one in our old house that we lived in, my daughter would go outside jumping on the trampoline come back inside crying because it sniped her on the hips.

As far as toys go, these are not the safest or most child friendly.
It was fun, but dangerous for us.

i cant wait to get my own home so i can have one these, ive always wanted one and they seem like so much fun

My cousins had one when they were younger. The younger one broke his arm, and his mom sold it... only to buy them another a year later and the same thing happened.

I have always wanted to jump on a trampoline but due to my anxiety, it makes me feel I am going to go way too high in the air. Heights scare the daylights out of me. It's either that or I am going to keep bouncing and can't stop or else flip in the air that I never did before. I have everything that goes through my mind on this but I enjoy people and kids jumping on it though.

I remember having our trampoline in the back yard, my sisters and I spent so much time on it in the summer. Ours was never screened in, we had a lot of accidents lol.

Trampolines always look like fun but I'm scared I'd either get hurt or break it lol. I guess I'll stay on the ground for now.

We had trampoline for gym in high school. There were no barriers so we all had to gather around to keep the jumper from falling. It was up on a balcony over the gym and I had visions of someone jumping too high and flying over the rail. It never happened, thank God for that.

I never even got to jump on a trampoline when I was a child because my parents were strict and found them very dangerous now I kind of fear it.

I always felt really apprehensive around trampolines since I was a kid. I was thrown off of one when I was a kid so I'm pretty sure I'm never going on one ever again.

I love trampolines and I think that they are fun. However you really have to be careful especially with kids because they can get hurt so easy.

I've had a trampoline accident and so has my younger brother. I mean he still suffers from neck pain because of it and it happened like 10 years ago.

trampolines are something my own parents did not allow my brothers and i to go on as children. they were so very right along w/ my uncle who is a nurse too many have gotten hurt on this broken limbs cracked skulls, back and neck problems and very rare time die after falling off hitting the ground just right. wouldnt make any different rather or no people stand around or is netted people still end up getting badly hurt on this

I didn't know that it was the most efficient & effective exercise. Looks like it is time for me to buy a trampoline & start my jumping!! haha.

My daughter has out grown hers and it is rusting so I tore it down and put it on the scrap metal pile.

My son has one of those big trampolines out in the front yard. I kind of wish it wasnt setting out there, it takes up so much space, but as long as he keeps playing on it I will leave it sitting there.

My parents would never allow me to have a trampoline of my own growing up, so as a kid, I would walk across the street and go jump and have a blast on the neighbor's kid's trampoline.

I remember growing up always begging my mom for a trampoline. they were always so fun when I would go to friends houses and they had one. 22 years old and I still havent gotten my trampoline lol

I use to trash out houses and had to remove every thing on the property so at one time my daughter had 3 trampolines in the yard at the same time.

I need to figure out how to fix ours. Three of the metal pieces ripped from the mat. I guess we need to find some type of thick string to sew i back together?

My son's best friend has one of these, but his dad is getting rid of it because they couldn't get insurance just for having one of these

I loved playing on a trampoline as a kid. Now as an adult, I would love to have one again for fitness. I have been seriously considering getting a small-scale trampoline... a rebounder... for using at home.

My daughter goes to a gym with trampolines side by side with no drop off on the sides. It's great fun and exercise when done safely.
