You will need to go to Morrisons

Nice offer

So many kids die on these every year, so dangerous!

From all my googling I found one, which was by the Daily Mail ... in which all I have to say to that newspaper is "lols, light switches give you cancer".

In all seriousness if 1 child dies to an active toy a year that is rather low. How many have died on bikes, scooters, skateboards, swimming pools, bouncy castles, eating frogs this year?

1 isn't "Lots every year!". 1 is simply kids being kids and having pretty damn rotten luck.

At risk of having my head chewed off as a sceptic, how do you know it's national.. Only asking because closest Morrisons is just a small shop and I know if I go for this, I will have to go to one of the larger stores further afield. Genuine question as very interested.

Your best option is to call local store and find out.

I work there... Obviously it's subject to availability though

Great price! Does anyone know what make it is?

I think the death comment was slightly over exaggeragerated, but after speaking with a friend who works in the local a&e department I know that they're the leading cause for broken bones in kids these days.

Heat for the price though, as this is a fab deal if you want one anyway.

HOT HOT HOT thanks OP

As with every toy, accidents happen. If weeper let kids play with anything that could potentially harm them, they wouldn't leave their beds...

Surely they are not THAT dangerous with an enclosure?

Hot!!!

Just bought one Tesco for 65 pounds, wish i could return it!

heat added, thanks

hot from me, great

Heat added.

Sold out at mine!

Best money I have ever spent in my life was on a trampoline for my kids.

We've had one about 3 years now and if it broke I would rush out immediately to replace it.

My 3 kids love it. They use it every day it doesn't rain. It's great exercise and gets more use than all their games machines.

As soon as they get home from school one of them is generally on it for half an hour or so.

None of them or their friends have ever been injured on it. My son did once fall off his bike and graze his knee so maybe I should warn people not to buy bikes for their kids.

Or maybe I should use my common sense and realise life happens.

Children more likely to get RSI from games machine than die on trampoline. Yes they canbe dangerous but so can riding your bike. Teach your kids to be sensible

where abouts in Morrisons are this then? Looking for one for the kids....

Usually only in larger stores. They get a few in every other day. Had seven at the Blackburn store today. Sold out pretty quickly.

As someone else pointed out, it was 1 death. I bet 100x as many will die from obesity-related disease.

Really? the leading cause? More than cycling, football etc?

Here's some quotes from actual proper newspapers and medical journals, and note that the trampoline in this deal, as with all supermarket trampolines, comes with barriers.

"The research, conducted by three orthopaedic doctors at the hospital, … "The research, conducted by three orthopaedic doctors at the hospital, also found that although the trampoline was placed on the grass in 95% of instances, most accidents (70%) occurred when there were no protective barriers - another recommended safety precaution. In six out of 10 cases, children were injured while trampolining, rather than climbing off the equipment, and in four out of 10 cases injury occurred owing to children colliding with each other. More than eight out of 10 accidents happened when more than one child was on the trampoline - another factor that contravenes guidance".



"A lot of the children had accidents when their play was unsupervised; when … "A lot of the children had accidents when their play was unsupervised; when there were no barriers around the trampoline; and when there was more than one jumper".



The majority of trampoline injuries — 75% — occur when more than one per … The majority of trampoline injuries — 75% — occur when more than one person is jumping on the trampoline at a time. Usually the youngest and smallest jumpers are at the highest risk for getting hurt; fractures and dislocations account for 48% of injuries in kids under 5. Overall, fractures and sprains make up the bulk of the harms in any age group, while falls from the apparatus, which can be catastrophic, cause 27% to 39% of all injuries.



Now read this:

I think anyone of average intelligence could balance the risks...

Glasgow Morrisons know nothing about it, so I guess not in Scotland

We have to watch our kids not leaving them go alone wherever they want... it's that simple!

Was going to buy a 10 foot trampoline for Asda yesterday but decided it was going to be too big.

Just saw this post and have rang every branch in the north east but sold out everywhere

I tried calling around all my local stores within a 30 mile radius...none available.

"Surely they are not THAT dangerous with an enclosure..."
What if they can't escape?

That's overly generous!

Hi thank you just got one at Falkirk morrissons after phoning half a dozen other stores that had none left. We also got a further 10% off with discount card from my hubby's work. That made it £45 . Will have 2 happy girls tonight who have been wanting one for a very long time. They have 2 left if anyone interested. Thanks again for posting deal.

My little girl had a severe hip problem when she was a baby (completely rectified now though). We asked her orthopaedic consultant if she would be able to do everything else that 'normal' children could do for example go on a trampoline - he said they wouldn't recommend trampolines for ANY child because of the amount of broken bones they treat that are apparently caused by them.
Needless to say we thought the exercise and fun she would have would outweigh the small risk of injury so we have got one.
Back to the point - £50 is an absolute bargain with an enclosure so heat added

I don't suppose anyone knows if they have any at Ross-On-Wye. My nephew would love one for his birthday present !!

Thanks very much got one from Lincoln this morning

Hi Just been to leyland and got one they still got 3 left Preston store should have them in next week

Great deal, saw them in Bodmin store today at this price.8)
