bought it at this price about 6 weeks ago and I think its great, well built trampoline and a reasonable size especially if your garden is not massive. My 3 boys love it now we just need the sunshine to return so they can use it:)

Thanks for the reassurance over quality!

My garden has more beds than grass so and there is really only one area that I have space for a trampoline. I measured out last night and thought that 10ft would have been to big.

I think that the price went up and then back down again during the last couple of days. It was mentioned in the another trampoline deal recently but when I checked it was up over £100 again.
My wife was looking at one just the other day... glad I waited, thanks!
we have this one its fab we have no issues with the wind blowing it over either like some other cheap ones
What age is this suitable for, the Tesco info is a bit confusing:

Age Range: 5-8 Years
Suitable Age From: 6 Years
Appropriate Age Warning: Not suitable for children under 36 months
Important Information: Not suitable for children under 3 years old

I presume this would mean it is not suitable for a 4 year old?

My nearly four year old uses it with his 6 year old brother with no issues but he is quite tall. If they can get into it on their own (the entrance is about 2 feet from the floor) and pull the zip in the entrance up and down they should be ok.

I have not been worried about him using it but have put a mat under the entrance as he does not quite understand about getting in and out carefully. Even my nearly 3 year old has a go sometimes but only when there is someone there to supervise/help as he would never understand to zip the door up before bouncing.
Anyone know if this the same or better/worse than the B&Q trampoline?
We've had this one for about 10 mths and already the enclosure netting has started to tear where it is stiched to the pole attachments. Need to check whether this is covered under the warranty, but it is something to be aware of

£20 dearer here argos.co.uk/sta…htm but looks to have a better net structure??????
No need for one in our household...I quite often bounce & down on my wife's massive plum (trampoline)

It had been over a fortnight since somebody posted a trampoline deal, and I was starting to get a little concerned. Thank the lord almighty that I no longer need to fret.

Thank you smk77 !
Hot for price but no tramps near me.

That is the one we've got actually. Good spot!
I know it says its protected against rust (humm) but would you need a cover for this or does it come with one?
Reserved argos one
Bought this from Argos 6 months ago and no problems since. Fits well in a smaller garden but most importantly it is a rather more subtle green and is therefore a little easier on the eye - happily paid more than this on that basis.
I was going to buy this for my 2 year old as she loves the ones in the play centres.

Why does it say Not suitable for children under 36 months?

When the 6ft ones are fine?

Surely its the same thing as the 6ft but bigger?
Ngac, if it is any comfort my 3 year old has had a 10ft trampoline for the past year and had no problems whatsoever.

He even fastens the catches and uses the zip without instruction now.

Just bought a smaller 8ft one as the 10ft one blew over the neighbours fence during the night mangling the net poles.

Don't forget to sink these into the ground a bit and take down the enclosure in heavy winds :facepalm:
Thanks Zombrex, Thats good to know!!

What are they best sitting on? as I assumed it would need hard surface but if it needs sinking into groground, best on wood chippings??

So the argos one has better enclosure? It looks identical to me apart from some green triangles at the bottom of the net where it makes the net curve in.
The tesco one seems to have the net vertical all the way around.

The engineer in me says the Argos one would break easier when they land on the curved part???

So Argos net goes further in to the circumference of the bouncy trampoline itself, the tesco one goes around the outside of the whole thing.

Looks like that to me too. Sometimes the children like to sit on the edge part. With the Argos one that's not possible.
Are these easy enough to dismantle to put away for the winter?

I'd say the Argos one is safer though? With the tesco one, what's the chance of them slipping out under the bottom of the net?

Fairly slim chance of that I would have thought. We've had another trampoline with the same sides as the Tesco one and no-one ever slipped under the side net. I would think that the chances of landing on the curved part on the Argos one is greater. This would then possibly tear the material and create more problems.
had ours delivered yesterday, hubby put it together last night. Looks a lot sturdier than other trampolines i have seen. Also got £10 off with a tescos voucher i found on this site so only cost me £73 with delivery. I opted for the £3 delivery, only ordered Saturday, said 5 days delivery but got it yesterday.

Thanks for the info. Now I can't make my mind up between the Tesco or Argos one!

How long did it take him to put it up? Did he do it on his own? I've order for my son's birthday in a couple of weeks and would like to put it up the evening before his birthday - weather permitting!

we did ours a couple of weeks ago in under an hour. My husband did most of it - I read the instructions and directed him and just helped move it around/pass him bits to speed things up. From my experience would say better with 2 people but could be possible with 1 strong one? Its getting the base of the trampoline together where it can get quite heavy and 2 people is better/safer.

My husband is very good as this type of thing so would be interested if others found it as quick/simple as we did.

I've read reviews of trampolines (not this one in particular) where people have commented on it taking half a day to put them up. Should have it done in 2hr max!

Anyone?
I went for the Tesco version as the Argos one, the net is on the inside, whereas the Tesco version is on the outside of the padding.

If a child bounces towards the edge (and lands on the padding), I would imagine the Argos version would tear easier as you're effectively landing on the net...

Have a hard job sliding out the net (my sons net is on inside and you have to thread it through the hooks connecting the spring to the steel circuler frame)

Setting up a trampoline should only take 45mins to 1hr with one person (that's how long it took me and didn't need to read instructions as I've put a few up before)

It takes longer to secure the netting than it does to put the trampoline up

KEG123

Anyone?



Take the posts and the netting off and place a cover over the bed, once you stick the feet on the bed it ios very hard to get them back off you'll have more chance of breaking your back trying tbh.

Safety enclosure take this off, take side posts off and stick a cover over the bed and turn it upside down if you want. Had my son's first one out all winter and no rusting etc if anything it's the sun that damages the covers the padding becomes discoloured.

I'm going to stop with the advice now before I'm classed as a trampoline sniffer

Thanks for that. Sounds like a 'no'?

a friend of mine has this and says he leaves his out for 4-5 weeks at a time and that it takes him about 20-30mins to take the net down before wheeling the trampoline down the side of their house, rather than leave it out all of the time and it not get used. The kids then appreciate it more when it's brought out.

that's one of the reasons i've gone for one as the last smaller trampoline we had, the net perished within a year, so I want to take good care of this one

They're £250 though for the 8ft.
HI
to those of you who have purchased the 8ft tesco plum trampoline (in current Tesco direct) for £74 ish, would you mind tellig me if it is a standard size trampoline ie height wise? Would an adult be able to use it if not over the max weight limit?
