The jumping attraction cannot be called completely harmless; injuries happen on it. Let's talk about the benefits and dangers of this wonderful invention. Trampolines in a fun, playful way set the child up for a healthy lifestyle, make it possible to get up from the table, break away from the computer and smartphone, and make a choice in favor of active movement.

There are three main types of trampolines: inflatable, net and mini trampolines. All three types can be designed for children of different ages, be outdoor or used indoors.
Children's inflatable trampolines look very cute and are often complemented by a slide. They are bright, varied, and have a narrative appearance, for example, a medieval castle, a dragon, an exotic island. Trampolines for the smallest ones are more like inflatable arenas, and for older children - like complex intricate structures. Some types of Best Trampoline for Kids include water, which makes them even more attractive to children. The designs can be with a dry pool (with balls) or swim in a real pond.
The material used for modern inflatable trampolines contains several layers: polyvinyl chloride, reinforced mesh, fabric elements. Such designs are not only beautiful, but also have a good repulsive effect. To do this, you need to ensure that the trampoline is fully inflated, and does not represent a sluggish playground. As for the slides, if this is not a water attraction, then they stop sliding over time. To activate them, use a silicone spray that is sprayed on the stingray. It extends the shelf life of the slide and keeps it slippery.
Spring and springless trampolines are fenced with a net for safety. In the Russian markets, more than 90% are spring structures, they are cheaper and less complicated to manufacture. Let's try to understand what the differences are. Both are a jumping board surrounded by a net. They differ in the way the web is tensioned. The springs stretch the trampoline in different directions and are attached to the frame. Springless structures (Springfree) provide tension through flexible fiberglass shock absorbers. This option allows you to make jumps more springy, but less abrupt, which helps the body to better control its movements.
Trampolines on shock absorbers are safer, since the tensioning device is hidden under the canvas and is inaccessible to jumpers. As for the springs, they are simply covered with a special compacted material, if violated, the child's leg can fall into the opening between the springs and get injured. The frame on which the shock absorbers are attached is hidden under the canvas, it is impossible to hit it. The frame of the spring trampolines is flush with the jumping surface.
