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.
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.
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.
Trampolines are so much fun. Our kids use to have one but they came so close to getting hurt. I think they are dangerous. Our pediatrician is totally against it. She said kids can easily break their necks.
I have really been thinking about getting my kiddos a trampoline! I kind of wish we owned a house to because I saw where people are putting their trampolines in the ground it looks neat and seems safer for the kids!
