We have been looking at trampolines over the last few weeks and are having trouble deciding which one to get, so many different ones out there. I have found one that looks good made by Mad Dash, anyone know of them? Also do you really need a ladder, we will probably get a 10 or 12 foot one. Have got a 7 year old who woould probably be able to jump on no problem, and a 3 year old so not so sure about her. Any tips anyone?

my (tall) 4yo can get on without anything, his friends can't. we use a garden chair - works well, is easier for them to get down onto - and i can take it away to stop the 16mo climbing on on his own.

That's a good idea, and it would save me £30!

we did have one of those little tykes cube climbing frames next to it at first - which was fantastic, large area, right height to get up on, easy to get down on etc (although harder for adults) but it killed the grass, so got moved and a chair does the same job.

Check out the heights of the trampolines your looking at,a couple of my friends have them and they need something usually a chair to let the little ones get on but mines is really quite low and my mates teeny 3 year old twins can climb onto it by themselves.

Ds has a step that kids use for reaching sides, the toilet etc.
Plus is plastic so no worries if it's left in the garden.

Thanks everyone. We have a platic step thingy from Ikea which would be just right so am going to go with that idea, thanks personalclown
