Jump for Fun or Plum Trampoline?

Hello, am trying to decide which trampoline to get.
We have a small terraced garden so can only go up to 8 foot and even then won't have much room around it.
Have found Jump For Fun, who seem to make great quality safer trampolines (octagonal so supposedly less likely to bump into others on the trampoline) but would be £180 sad
Argos have a Plum one for £89, which price wise much better for us as we don't have much money but I am worried the kids would bump into each other and want them to be able to jump together. Also worried the quality wouldn't be so good.
Trying to work out if spending nearly £100 will be worth it - my kids are 6 and 3 so would probably get years of use out of it so want to get the best one possible, but not bankrupt myslef either!
If anyone has any advice or experience of either of these makes, would really appreciate it

We have a plum one. We've had it for about 4 years now (although we paid a lot more for it than £90). Ours is 8ft and it has been good. The thing I liked about the plum one was that you can replace the parts. Over the four years, I have replaced the pad which perished (it is left out all winter, often without the cover on) and we have also replaced the net (which ripped when we moved house). But we've had no problems with it at all, and ours gets used a lot!

Thanks Letchladee - went with the Plum and is now up in our garden - looks great and really pleased with it

Hi uptight,

I know this is an old post but how did you get on with your 8ft trampoline? We have a small garden so can't get a massive one but my daughter is 6 and worried that the "junior" will be too junior for her over the next couple of years.

Thank you!
