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 used to have a trampoline when I was a kid. It was a lot of fun and I miss jumping on it. Although as an adult it's a lot harder on your body.

My kiddy relatives have a trampoline. I find it so scary. I'm always scared someone's gonna break a leg jumping on that

My niece has a trampoline (it's low to the ground) that she got for her second birthday. The dog uses it as his bed now. She still jumps on it, he just also sleeps on it.

I love trampolines. I try to jump on it before. There was a trampoline at school. I love jumping but on moderation because I fell one time that injured my back and legs.

I like the way this one has a big net around it, I can see me flying off there, and breaking a leg. Good exercise, and could probably enjoy this.

My kiddos have decided that they want a trampoline so they are now saving their allowance and going in together on buying one! Pretty proud of them for working together to buy something so big!

I loved using trampolines as a kid, and I think they are ok if supervised. Unfortunately there are lots of news stories about people being hurt on them.

Trampolines are so much fun. We had them when we were little and my kids had one. The net broke so fast though and then it just started falling apart. They don't make them like they used to

The circular backyard ones are pretty dangerous and do rip as you said. We have a place by our house that is filled with trampolines. You can't fall off of them so they are much safer it is a lot of fun and really good exercise.

I love trampolines even though I am an adult. I find it a good way to exercise and my kids love it , it keeps my oldest occupied for hours

I miss having a trampoline. That was definitely one of the simplest, yet most effective daily workouts I ever got.

I need one of these, i can see myself being super fit with it .They can be expensive but oh, it might be worth it.Do you exercise on yours?

The trampoline should always have a cage or net around it. People do not realize how many people are seriously injured while jumping on one.

Yeah they can be dangerous.A friend of a friend fell on the metal edge of the trampoline. He broke his rib and punctured a lung.

It has been a while since I jumped on a trampoline. I remember having fun with one of my friends and doing flips.

They are so much fun, but so dangerous at the same time. I loved during gymnastics training on the days we could use the trampoline. I had one for my oldest and he got doing crazy stunts.

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

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 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

Just be sure to get a trampoline with a protective net. My friend's son fell while jumping and was paralyzed. He later died as a result of this.

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.
