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 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.

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.

We used to have a trampoline and the kids loved it. They are begging for another one, but for some reason my husband is against it. I am not sure why, they are only a couple hundred dollars.

I have a friend that uses her kids Trampoline to get a sun-tan. She says she turns the sprinkler on low, underneath it, and lays in her swimmies. Sounds like a good idea to me!
Allison Young
I am that one parents that is scared of these things becasue I have heard bad stories about them. THe nets do help though
Junetta Ashley
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!

I used to enjoy crudely fashioned trampolines when I was younger (decades) ago, now that I am all grown, there is no space for me to set one up for my children, they have at school though and have fun playing there with friends.

I love trampolines and remember them well as a kid going to my cousins house and using theres a lot.

I remember the days we use to jump on a friends to music playing in the background as we would jump from this into the deep emd pool
Jemma Hurley
I love the trampoline as much as my kids! Makes me feel like a big kid at heart. It's good exercise aswell so maybe helps out with my fitness levels?!

My granddaughter begged me for a trampoline and as she had spent so much time on other people's I thought I would get her one. She never uses it! She says it is too small and not very bouncy. What a waste of money.
Reece Brown
Weirdly, we had the same thing happen! My sister wouldn't stop wanting a trampoline, as soon as she got one, she used it for a few days, then stopped. Hasn't used it in 3 years.
Linda Mansfield
She still likes to bounce on her friend's trampoline but it is bigger than hers. I couldn't get a really big one because my garden is so small.
