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 love trampolines. I never had one as a kid but I loved jumping on them at all times. Fun fun

I think this is a good cardio work out either alone or with friends. You enjoy and have fun while burning some calories.

I eventually want to get a trampoline one day. I used to have a friend who had a fair sized one with a net, I had a lot of fun on that thing. Good exercise too

I had sampled the trampoline in the beach resort. Even had a video of it but... I got a sore joint in the hips after that. So now I don't play on trampolines anymore, waheehee.

I used to live next to some neighbors that they have a big trampoline and my daughter would go over there and play with their kids very often.

I love trampolines, they are second only to bouncy castles! There is something incredibly liberating about bouncing around like a lunatic and not caring what anyone else in the world thinks about you!

I used to spend numerous hours on the trampoline when I was younger - it was my favourite. these do scare me as so many kids have gotten hurt

I think the trampoline is now being used by overweight people to lose weight. A fat friend told me that she had lost 5 pounds in a week of trampoline.

I have not been on one of these in years! I love the size of the one in the picture and I am sure I would enjoy having a go on that.

I love trampolines! I used to be scared of them but now I love them so much! And I feel liberated whenever I use them lol

I am wanting to get on for my family this summer. It is so much fun just to hang out and jumping is great and because it is springy I would imagine low impact. My son seems to open up when he is engaged in this type of activity

love trampolines! I used to be scared of them but now I love them so much! We got one last summer and it is a great idea!

I miss my old trampoline! I would always have friends over and we would just sit on it and talk (not even jump) LOL!

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
