Top Trampolines For Toddlers And Babies
Trampolines are a fantastic combination of fun and excercising for people at any age. The bouncing and jumping are a great form of exercise even without person’s knowledge. They are receiving a fun aerobic workout while also helping them burn off all that physical and mental pent-up energy and so much more.
The key features any trampoline for kids should include are: covered springs or cords that are sturdy, a safe netting or a combortable handle that will keep kids safe, and finally a sturdy frame. We have compiled the list of products that include all of these features.
When choosing a trampoline pay attention to the size, price and weight limitations. These 3 things should help you make the right decision. Below are our recommendations for the best in mini trampolines that are approved and which have proven to have the best safety features.

The Skywalker Company is a recognized name in sports equipment for all members of the family. For over 16 years this brand name has proven to provide individuals with safety and fun. Their trampoline family products are surprisingly easy to assemble as it remains very safe for jumpers of all ages to enjoy. To increase the fun with the Skywalker trampoline products for kids they have given fun names to their products. This trampoline is called the Round Seaside Adventure.
There is no surprise that in its design there are no steel or aluminum springs. Instead, connections are made with extremely durable “stretch bands.” If a trampoline with springs is not constructed well, it will result in a multitude of injuries. However, with this Skywalker Mini Trampoline, the elastic bands are situated outside the trampoline for safety features personified for kids of all ages.
This indoor red and blue hexagon-shaped mini trampoline for kids with its enclosed net mesh that does not allow any gaps to form while the kids are jumping around in fun and glee. This 48 inch round trampoline is designed with a 360° heavily padded handlebar which serves a dual purpose which is to keep kids safe and to stabilize the trampoline.
The Skywalker Mini is available in fun colors with playful graphics. A great feature that parents will like is that kids can’t accidentally crawl beneath the trampoline especially if it is being used. This feature eliminates the possibility that they could follow a toy and get stuck. We mentioned that Skywalker has thought of everything in its trampoline designs.
Additional features include its wide base design that keeps the trampoline upright even when it is being jumped on and rolled upon. Its jumping mat is a polypropylene material that has proven to be used in sports tools even by professionals.
2. The Skywalker Mini 40” Round Lily Pad
The Skywalker Mini 40” Round Lily Pad Trampoline with enclosed netting is great for kids. It is suggested that no more than 2 little tots should play at a time on this sturdy bouncing fun product. This blue, green, and yellow trampoline with fun designs will keep your kids playing for hours (under supervision).
Parents will be happy with its soft yet durable mesh enclosure. The enclosure will keep the kids safe if they bump against it while jumping around in fun. The mesh enclosure is also designed to protect the kids from falling off the jumping mat.
An additional safety feature is that there are no steel springs like those in adult trampolines. To keep kids safe Skywalker manufactured the trampoline with lots of durable and sturdy stretch cords. Of course, the stretch bands/cords are located away from the kids which you will see when you assemble it.
A padded 360° grip bar encircles the trampoline so that the kids can grab hold of it and pull upwards for balance after they have fallen down with laughter. The grip bar is also designed to keep the trampoline well-balanced.
Its jumping mat bounces just enough to give the kids a thrill. The mat will not hit the floor surface as your child and a friend squeal and jump for hours in full safety. The mat is made from a material that will last for years.
This model will fit comfortably in a small area of a playroom. There is no crawl space beneath the trampoline to keep kids and pets safe. For safety and fun, this small-sized indoor trampoline is the perfect fun toy for your kids.
3. Little Tikes 3'
Little Tikes 3 Foot Trampoline is going to be your child’s favorite toy. This trampoline gives a toddler the right type of bouncing they need to keep them safe without any injuries. The bouncing ability it provides is for low-impact jumping. Little Tikes 3 Foot Trampoline can be assembled easily and it will fit into any room of your room.
It folds up easily to take with the family when you visit grandma and grandpa. Little Tikes 3’ Trampoline is functional, fun, and convenient. This trampoline by Little Tikes is designed for 1 child at a time. It can hold a weight of up to 55 pounds. It is made of sturdy blue frame cover and a red/black handlebar with steel legs covered by thick plastic. Parents must be warned that when you want your child to come and eat you may get resistance because they will not want to stop bouncing and jumping.
What is the difference between trampolines with safety net and handlebar?
Trampolines with safety net are a little more safe. But it takes kids more time to get on a trampoline. Once they do though they tend to have longer jumping sessions. Some kids feel uncomfortable being surrounded by the net and prefer more open view.
Trampolines with handlebar are way easier to get on. Which makes it a very easily accessible toy. Holding a handle gives a better feeling of control which makes kids jump higher and have more fun. But there is a chance to fall off if they let go of the handle.
4. Merax 36" Kid's Mini
At a weight of 180 pounds, this Merax 36” trampoline is available in the colorful hues of pink, blue, or green. Kids and adults can enjoy the bounciness of this trampoline in safety. A lightweight adult can borrow it in a pinch but should not use it daily. A nice small kids’ trampoline (36 x 36 x 32 inches) is very heavy duty, meaning it will last for years as long as it is kept indoors as it is intended.
Because an older child can play and practice on this trampoline, steel springs are used in its design. The springs allow the trampoline to be set 10 inches from the floor and allows a weight of up to 180 pounds. The Merax trampoline features an optional handlebar that is recommended for use by a child. I’d like to say that the handlebar helps to balance this trampoline, but a child or an adult should not lean on the handles or it may cause a tipping event.
As a mature looking trampoline, it is best not to leave it outdoors because it is not designed with a weather-resistant mat, springs, or mesh. Just looking at this Merax trampoline tells you that it is portable and is easy to assemble. Without an enclosed mesh netting, this trampoline style is best used by experienced kids especially if you choose to affix its handlebar. Its additional measurement includes a total weight of 18 pounds and the height between the mat and the handlebar is around 24 inches. This means that with a handlebar it is heightened best for children and not adults.
5. Skybound Mini
Children will thoroughly love jumping and bouncing on this Skybound Mini Trampoline. Its 40-inch diameter holds a total weight of 100 pounds. As an indoor trampoline, this Skybound Mini Trampoline is easy to assemble and is made of strong quality material.
The trampoline features feet made of sturdy rubber which hold fast when kids are bouncing up and down on a daily basis, both for use indoors and outdoors. Parents prefer to use this trampoline in a room inside the house, but its UV-resistant vinyl safety jumping pad makes it easy to use outdoors.
The feet also assures parents of its ability not to scratch any floor surface. Speaking of jumping and bouncing, its thick PVC foam floor mat will remain intact and stable for a long time without any gaps.
An ergonomically designed handlebar is an easy feature for kids to hold onto for better balance. This trampoline will fit in any size room and provides the safety features that every parent wants for their child on this type of jumping and bouncing toy.
Its thickly padded handles will save your children’s hands as they play and jump for hours due to its padded inserts.

Mini indoor trampolines are a space-saver for kids to have a howling good time for hours. They also keep the human body exercised and well-conditioned within its circulatory system like keeping the heart functioning properly. Their safety features are very important but what is most important is the parental guidance.
If your toddler enjoys a trampoline, secure one that is strictly for their weight and age. Tell your child that there will not be any flipping or other feats that they see on TV and think that they can perform. With that said trampoline toys still should always be watched over by parents or guardians, especially when a child is a neophyte on their bouncing, tumbling, and jumping.
Keep indoor trampolines on an even secure spatial area and keep outdoor trampolines also on level ground and away from plants, trees, furniture, etc. Then stand back and watch your children jump with joy and listen to their enthusiasm. As your child learns how to use it properly, you can invest in larger trampolines for the whole family. Who knows, the introduction of a trampoline to your child could lead them to the Olympics or other world stage performances. You never know!
