8 Reasons To Get Your Children A Trampoline

Usually, kids don’t need too much encouragement to play. However, with the availability of iPads, TVs, and gaming, it’s getting more and more difficult to convince kids that physical activities are the better option. Well, one way to get them to bounce into action is to get them a trampoline!


Trampolines have always captured the hearts of kids (and adults) and have been an easy way to get kids to lead an active lifestyle while having tons of fun. But there’s so much more in store with these pieces of playtime equipment. In this article, we’re going to give you 8 reasons why you should definitely get your kids a trampoline. 

  1. Trampolining is a brilliant form of exercise

Isn’t it amazing how long kids can jump on a trampoline? One way to test anyone's fitness level is to see how long they can jump. For kids, it’s a fun and thrilling way to play outside, but don’t underestimate how much those little hearts, lungs, and muscles are working during those sessions.


Did you know that due to the nature of trampolining, it’s not only fun, but this low-impact exercise can help kids improve their cardiovascular health, increase their strength, enhance their balance and burn three times more calories than other exercises like running? Parents, getting your kids a trampoline is a win-win situation! You can have fun together and get your workout in at the same time. 


  1. Trampolines improve cognitive development and motor skills

You’ll be happy to know that while your kids are bouncing up and down on their trampoline, they’re actually engaging in an activity that helps to improve cognitive function and coordination. 


As kids bounce, it provides them with significant vestibular stimulation and shifts their center of gravity. This challenges their brains to improve their balance, spatial awareness, bilateral movements, and motor skills. By developing these skills, your child's ability to perceive and navigate their physical environment may help to improve their cognitive abilities and is especially beneficial for kids with Autism. 


  1. Trampolines encourage kids to go outside

Everyone knows it’s healthy to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Why is it so necessary, though? Going outside for a while encourages people to get active, which can help with lowering our cortisol levels and simultaneously give us a necessary boost of vitamin D from the sun. 

Maybe it’s the adrenaline from doing tricks or the soothing bouncing motion, but trampolines make playing outside so much more fun and, therefore, can tempt almost anyone to go and spend some time outdoors. 

  1. Trampolines are a great way to socialize

The coolest kids in the neighborhood always seem to have a trampoline. Coincidence? We think not. Trampolines are just so much fun, and it’s a great place for kids and their friends to hang out. Kids have a ball when seeing who can jump the highest or when they learn new gymnastics moves and tricks together. 


Nowadays, you can add so many cool accessories to trampolines to make playing with friends even better. We’re talking about basketball hoops, sprinklers, swingsets, and so much more. The more friends want to come over and play, the more your kids get to develop their social skills. 

  1. Trampolines are great for keeping kids entertained 

It’s completely normal for kids to have that “I’m bored” moment, and they will expect you, as the parent, to come up with a solution. Well, you could think of some fun and creative activities to entertain them. This usually means you’ll spend a long time preparing something, which they’ll probably finish within a few moments – or you could let them play on the trampoline! Some kids would probably spend all their time on the trampoline if they could. It’s amazing! So, if you’re looking for a way to keep your kids busy for hours, get a trampoline.  

  1. Trampolines are awesome for kids’ mental health

Not only are trampolines tons of fun, but they’re amazing for your kids’ mental health, too! Jumping on a trampoline means your kids can enjoy themselves all while getting some exercise. Exercising releases the “happy” hormones called endorphins in our bodies, which help improve our mental health and well-being. So, when your kids are looking a little down, getting them to go and jump around for even just a few minutes is a good way to boost their mood. 

  1. Trampolines are safe

Nowadays, trampolines are kitted out! There are so many features to optimize the fun of jumping, all while keeping your kids’ safety a top priority. There are state-of-the-art safety nets and super thick cushioning all around the trampoline to ensure there’s little to no chance that your kid will fall off or come into contact with the springs and hard poles. There are even springless trampolines for those who want to be extra safe. 


  1. Trampolines give you great value for money

Can you really put a price on your child’s happiness? Well, if we’re being honest, yes. All it takes is buying a trampoline, and you’ll put the biggest smile on your kid's face. Not only do they give your kids endless hours of fun, but most trampolines, like Vuly’s range, are made from high-quality materials and are designed to last – some even feature weatherproof covers for extra protection against the elements. 


To meet certain standards, good trampolines are put through vigorous testing, so when you buy a trampoline that meets the standards, you’re buying something that will give your kids tons of fun for years to come. 


Final Thoughts

There are still so many other reasons why getting a trampoline is beneficial for your kids! It’s amazing how one activity can combine so many physiological and psychological benefits and so much fun at the same time. For those who have made up their mind and need help choosing the right trampoline, go and check out Vuly’s range of trampolines, where you can find the perfect one for your family.  They’ve got trampolines in all types, shapes, and sizes, with a plethora of fun accessories to add on. It’s time to bring on the fun, reap the benefits, and get your kids (or yourself) a trampoline.
