Trampoline - how much to spend to get a...?
kmini · 29/06/2021 14:27
Just looking for opinions on trampolines brands and trying to decide whether worth spending extra on certain brands?? Say something like Sportspower (Argos - around 200) vs Plum (400-500) vs Jumpking and TP (around 600+).
My greatest concern is safety and then longevity, but they all seem to say they have strong nets, protected springs etc etc and similarish warranties.
Can anyone help. 8.5 months pregnant, brain frazzled and don't seem to be getting anywhere!

We got the plum junior one about almost 5 years ago for my DD’s fourth birthday. She was 9 this week and we passed it down to our grandchildren at the beginning of the summer. It was still in really good condition just a little faded (it was a pink one so probably didn’t help).

We've literally just bought a jumpking.
I was like you- going round and round in circles and did some research and decided that I would spend a bit more- (£599)
Also went for a rectangular one as it made the best use of the space in the corner that it lives in.
Can't comment on the longevity of it - but am so far impressed. And it looks a lot better than I expected - was dreading the thought of an eyesore for a few years. It's also pretty quiet- the neighbours can't hear it.
It's very strong and sturdy- hadn't actually realised a trampoline could be so heavy.

Bought a jump king round 14 foot ten years ago. It has become our best ever value item in terms of amount paid v how many times it has been been used. Kids are on it on average every three days throughout the the year ....for the last ten years. Never had to replace base or springs, they're all still in good condition. Have had to replace net twice at a cost of £100 a time because they deteriorate and rip if left out all winter like ours. Would highly recommend.
