Trampolines for 2 Year Olds

Updated on May 12, 2014

Top Trampolines for 2 Year Olds

If you're looking for trampolines for 2 year olds there are two options:

Trampoline with a handle - these are designed for young children to hold onto the handle and jump up and down.

Small trampoline with an enclosure - you can get small trampolines with enclosures that are generally designed for young children to bounce up and down on their own

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.

Jumping Trampolines with Handles

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.

Bazoongi 48" Bouncer

The bazoongi 48" bouncer is another trampoline with a bouncer but is a bit bigger than the other nursery trampolines featured above. A great choice of indoor or outdoor trampoline especially if you have older children too. The handle has two adjustable settings for different heights and its frame is rust resistant.

Trampoline with Enclosure

Trampolines with enclosures are great fun. The are most suited to outdoor play and make a fun feature for 2 year olds to burn off energy in any backyard. You will normally find quite large trampolines with enclosures for older children but there are smaller versions which are more suited to a 2 year olds such as the Bazoongi Kids trampoline below.

Trampolines can be dangerous and at 2 years old it's safer for your child to jump on their own. Therefore a trampoline designed for one child is a good choice.

What to look for when buying a trampoline with an enclosure.

Make sure you choose a trampoline with the padding mentioned at the beginning of the article. Also look for:

Frames made of durable material - look for materials such as galvanised steel which are rust free which is great when used outside and can cope with the pressure created by children when jumping.

Cost

If you're looking to save money and get a bargain trampoline for your 2 year old check out ebay. Sometimes they have good deals on new trampolines or you could search for second hand ones. If you do an advanced search you can narrow your search by location so you can pick up a trampoline near to you.
