Found 12th Feb 2008
Hi we have decided to get a trampoline for the kids (honest) but just wondered which size is best 8', 10' or 12' I have enough room for all and was going to go for the 10' if this was adequete. Also how much to pay have seen them range from £129 to £229 with net and there seems to be little difference in spec can anyone recommend a size and model. Thanks Neil

Hi i bought a 12 ft and it has turned out to be far too big
wish i had bought an 8ft now Then again i think its been used half a dozen times
hope this helps:thumbsup:

Very much depends on the age of your children. The older they are the larger/stronger the trampoline they need. You need to be good to stay in the middle of an 8 ft trampoline!. You MUST have a safety net!!.It is very important to take the weight that the trampoline will hold into consideration. Do you wish to restrict to one child at a time / no adults?. Can't tell you what to do but we have 2 teenagers and bought a 12 ft heavy duty trampoline. They can use it with their friends and even I can use it... and I'm a big lad!!. Can recommend outdoortoysdirect for quality and choice. Happy bouncing!!;-)

I had this problemlast year too, in one way i thought the bigger the better so that if more than one kid is on they have more room to get out of the way, and that has worked well. I got mine from [url]www.trampledunderfoot.co.uk[/url] they are expensive but are a good quality and as my children are young i hope it will last maany years where as the cheaper ones dont look like they are going to last. If you get chance to compare the cheaper and dearer ones you will see a big difference so again it all depends on your situation

You can buy covers for them too to protect when not in use.

My friends next door but one neighbour has a trampoline for the kids, they use it as an advantage point to nose into the neighbouring gardens!!! :roll:

I would get one with a safety net. I have a 8ft one which is o.k. but i wouls recomend a 10 or 12ft one. HAPPY BOUNCING TIGGER!:w00t:

We got a 10ft with enclosure from TJ Hughes last year for £99. I would say 10ft is about right as it isn't too small and isn't too big

We have a 12ft one with the net. My kids love it, and so do all their friends.
