Top Trampolines for 2 Year Olds
If you're looking for trampolines for 2 year olds there are two options:

When buying a trampoline for a 2 year old, there are a few things you need to consider.
Where will you locate the trampoline?
The trampoline should go on a flat surface with room to get on and off either side and away from other object so that children don't jump off and hit them. If possible place them on grass outdoors or on a mat so children won't hit the concrete when they get off.
Rust resistant - if you are using the trampoline outdoors look for materials that are rust resistant.
Padding - the best trampolines have padding around the outside so kids don't get their feet stuck around the outside of the trampoline.
There are other considerations depending on whether you get a trampoline with a handle or one with an enclosure. Read on for more advice and suggestions of top trampolines for 2 year olds.

There are lots of advantages of getting a smaller trampoline with a handle is that they take up less room and can be used indoors which is great to get 2 year olds burning off energy when they can't run around outside. Or of course they can go outdoors too.
There are several different trampolines with handles. Some of them have some quite nifty features for example the Galt trampoline at the bottom of the list has foldable legs and a handle which can screw off so its easier to put away and store.
When buying a trampoline consider the following features :
Weight limit - Check the weight limit of the trampoline as this will give you an idea of how long your child will be able to use the trampoline for.
Height adjustable handlebar - make sure the handlebar is height adjustable so that it will grow with your child.
Weight of trampoline - You want the trampoline to be heavy enough so that it doesn't move around when kids bounce on it, but you can move it easily if you need to change its location.
