I had the same energy as a child and my most loved plaything was my trampoline. I was on it night and day jumping, having picnics with my teddies underneath, or just gazing at the sky and contemplating the awesomeness of the huge expanse above me. Until recently I missed that special place terribly, and wished for one for me and my boys. I have an inner city backyard, large by most standards, but I thought a trampoline would render the space unuseable. The amount of trampoline-related injuries also concerned me.
I started researching trampolines to see what was available. Friends and family had been raving about Springfree trampolines in terms of quality and safety, so I went to their website and also canvassed other brands available at retail outlets. It soon became clear Springfree were the standout and that for a bit more money, we’d have a trampoline that’s the safest anywhere in the world.
Fibreglass rods are installed underneath the mat and the frame. Your child doesn’t even run the risk of falling on springs because there are none. The padding found over springs of conventional trampolines and on the metal support poles can often degrade within a year or two. Springfree took padding out of the equation entirely, providing a clean, supple edge all the way to the flexible netting. In fact all of the hazards common to trampolines were eliminated, leaving one that is clean-lined, safe and of industrial quality. You will find them at playcentres and they’re the only trampolines on the market endorsed by Kidsafe.
Now that ours is installed and in full use, I can honestly say our Springfree has revolutionised our home life. By adhering to the safety advice of one child on at a time, I really do get some peace and a break from running after them all day. The kids are happy, comfortable and safe, and they’re expending a lot of energy and getting fitter. I have enjoyed some bounce time myself and in those moments have felt blissfully child-like again. My four-year-old and I go ‘night bouncing’ each night when little brother is in bed, and we star gaze, tickle and laugh on our elevated bouncy bed. Yep, it’s love!
I don’t know what they put in the water in New Zealand, but some amazing products continue to be designed over there and this is one of them. Check out this comparison video about why Springfree are the safest.
