    Hey, I don’t think it’s always that dangerous. If you have the safety features like enclosure and also some feels spring free trampoline is more safe. But before and after buying a trampoline they must ensure the safety because it maybe dangerous for kids.

    Well, I tend to agree that trampolines can be dangerous. But. most of this accidents happen because there was either no padding or safety enclosure so jumpers fall down from it! Ok, there still are moments when accidents do occur, but hey, today you can get injured just bz walking on the street.

    Just by watching any trampolining videos on youtube you can clearly see that roughly 50% of people has no trampoline enclosure!!?
    If this is the main reason for injuries, they are guilty for stupidity and it`s entirely their fault, not trampoline`s.

    Also, trampolines are much safer than they were before. Read some trampoline reviews and decide if you still hate them…

    Great article! I mean yes trampolines fun to play with but people always neglect the safety aspects when it comes to jumping. I’m very particular about my kid’s safety so I bought the safety enclosure net to prevent them from falling off. But accidents do happen. It’s inevitable.

    We have a trampoline and we have very strict rules about the stunts you can do and the number of kids at a time (2). Our house is the happening place in the neighborhood because of it, and we’ve only had one injury worth mentioning, and it was only a strained muscle. In fact, it’s the one thing that gets the kids outside, and often while waiting for a turn, they end up finding other ways to entertain themselves that require more imagination. I’d also note before we got ours, my kids were jumping on friends’ trampolines injury free for the last 3+ years.

    Meanwhile, bikes and scooters and soccer games have caused regular injuries. Ironically nothing yet from climbing trees (knock on wood). Active life is dangerous, but I’d rather live it and teach my kids how to be active responsibly.

    We do not have a trampoline. I toyed with getting one a few years ago and happened to post it on Facebook and got about 25 responses saying “Don’t do it! Trampolines are dangerous!” For the mom of very active boys, it seemed like a great idea at the time…on second thought, three boys on a trampoline? What a bad idea!
