Hi all. We're thinking about getting a Junior Jumper type toddler trampoline (the sort for 1 child, has a handle) for our 27mo. She's taken to climbing and tumbling and jumping around/off of furniture and I'd rather try to channel that somewhere safer biggrin.gif Has anyone had good/bad luck with the toddler trampolines?

We dont have one of those but I did buy one of the small 4.5ft netted tramps before christmas. DD loves it and uses it almost daily, we will definitely be buying her a bigger one for her birthday next year when she outgrows this one.

Thankfully we got ours on sale for only $80 so not a huge outlay for such a short period of use.

Thanks to both of you. We can't do outdoor trampolines as our dogs would decide they were a very large canine recreation facility biggrin.gif or oversized chewtoy. Bums me out though as I'd love one, myself!

I think we'll give the junior jumper a shot. We have too many corners and walls and dogs around that make vaulting off of sofas a particularly dangerous occupation biggrin.gif

We had one for my DS when he was little, best money ever spent. Especially great in winter, just wish we had bought it earlier so he had more time on it before he was too big.
