Update: This article was updated in April 2020 because we were seeing a big trend in backyard toys for kids like baby pool, above ground pools, hammocks and trampolines because local park equipment is closed with the nationwide shutter policies. While originally Kids Activities Blog partnered with Springfree Trampoline on this review, as you will see the kid happiness results remain years later…
Back in fall of 2018, my son started asking for a trampoline to add to our backyard. I never had a trampoline growing up, so I wasn’t too familiar with the options out there. After lots of research, I want to share why a Springfree Trampoline is the the one we chose for his holiday gift.
Spring Free Trampoline is Safer
You won’t find metal springs on these trampolines. In fact, you won’t find springs at all. Springfree Trampoline utilizes composite rods to create bounce, which eliminates the possibility of your kid getting pinched by trampoline parts.
Spring Free Safety Net
One of my favorite features is the flexible safety net that surrounds the Springfree Trampoline. My son *loves* jumping into the sides of ours — the net cushions falls and guides jumpers back onto the jumping surface, which is especially fun for kids. I love that there is no chance for him to fall off the trampoline and get injured. That’s a win-win if ever there was one.
I also love the SoftEdge™ Mat, which eliminates any hard edges at the jumping surface and absorbs 30 times more impact than traditional trampoline padding. I don’t have to worry about my kid getting stuck between the springs or falling through with this technology.
Plus, the frame is hidden beneath the mat on a Springfree Trampoline, so jumpers can’t hit it.
Springfree Trampoline Is Built to Last
Each Springfree Trampoline comes with a 10-year warranty. The materials are designed to withstand even the harshest outdoor conditions, so no extra covers or storage are required.
This was important to me because we live in Texas, where the summers get super-hot and we can expect a few ice storms in the winter. I wanted to be sure that our trampoline wouldn’t deteriorate in harsh weather, and so far it hasn’t. In fact, our trampoline has had a ton of use over the last 18 months and it looks like it is new.
Springfree Trampoline is Low-Impact
One of the first things my son said to me after he got on our Springfree Trampoline was that he liked the way it felt when he jumped. Because of the way that Spring free Trampolines are built, you get a much smoother, non-jarring bounce when you jump.
The technology behind Springfree Trampolines is different from your traditional trampoline. Rods under the mat flex towards the center, then pull straight back out, creating a smooth and extra-bouncy motion.
This low-impact bounce is much easier on joints — like knees and ankles — than traditional trampolines.
Springfree Trampoline is a gift your kids will enjoy for years.
A recent survey Springfree conducted found that 71% of Texas parents say their kids play with their toys for less than six months after the holidays and that nearly two-thirds of parents aren’t sure that money spent on holiday toys is a good investment. I’m here to say that THIS holiday toy (Springfree Trampoline) was a great investment and was not a toy they’ll play with one day and be bored with the next. Since our Springfree Trampoline was installed, my son has gone outside daily to jump — even if it’s just for five minutes. This has continued over the last year and half.
Andrew will play imaginary games on the jump surface. I once even found him lying on the trampoline reading a book.
A Springfree Trampoline is a great way to enjoy fun, safe playtime together as a family. My kiddo and I will take turns jumping to see who can get the highest. He usually wins.
Last week I went out to find my husband and dog jumping alongside him. The entire family is enjoying the trampoline.
Buy a Springfree Trampoline
A trampoline is an investment and it’s one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. There were nearly 286,000 medically treated trampoline injuries in 2014 in the United States, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Safety is so important, and that’s why we chose Springfree Trampoline for our family. To try it for yourself, there are two Springfree stores and Dallas where you can test jump and speak with trampoline experts to pick the best fit for your backyard. In 2018, Springfree is offered a Black Friday Sale offer for three free accessories when you buy a trampoline.
