Little Tikes 3 Trampoline is one of the top exercise models for toddlers, according to many reviews. The small circle, four-legged trampoline acquires assembly, but the hours of energy toddlers burn off jumping is well worth it. The large jumping surface and safety handle offer room for movement and a bar to grab for balance.
Only for indoor use, the plastic and metal construction weighs 15.3 pounds and is easy to move from room to room. Its affordability makes this indoor trampoline practical enough to purchase two compared with the price of some of the more expensive models.
The best part of the Little Tikes 3 Trampoline is its overall popularity with parents. It promises hours of fun in a small space and can be easily moved from the kitchen to the laundry room, while parents change up chores throughout the afternoon.
This trampoline is perfect for toddlers with continual energy who cannot be tired out by just one form of exercise. It's a great exercise tool to utilize along with other activities and it's guaranteed to strengthen balance and coordination in your growing toddler.
This trampoline is a parents’ favorite due to its size and sensible price. Positive reviews rave that the product not only provides hours of fun exercise, but also acts as a nap mat, tent structure and even a wrestling arena, among other uses.
Bright green and full of fun, the tortoise-inspired trampoline is another great option.
Rubber feet and a tubular steel frame ensure this toy is sturdy for use both indoors and outdoors. It has a 27 inch-frame diameter and measures 23 inches from the floor to the handle, giving children plenty of room to jump safely.
This trampoline is built specifically for little kids who can later advance to the next level trampoline offered by Galt Toys. If your toddler likes tortoises and jumping, this may be the perfect pick for your kiddo.
We love the low level model, as it makes it easy for a toddler to crawl onto the trampoline and use the bar to help him or her stand. For children as young as one, the model promises to be fixture around the house for a couple of years while they learn and grow.
This trampoline is perfect for children one year and older who weigh less than 44 lbs and are too young for the traditional Galt Folding Trampoline.
This offers not only a great form of exercise for toddlers, we love how its aesthetics can invoke a child's imagination. The animal theme lets toddlers pretend they're jumping through a grassy, swamp on a tortoise shell right in the middle of your own living room.
Boasting six legs rather than four and real galvanized springs, the Bazoongi 48” Bouncer is a very stable and study option.
A bit pricier than aforementioned models, this one has a larger jumping surface, allowing for double the fun with two children jumping at once (at combined maximum weight of 110 lb.). This is by far an invaluable option when it comes to the notion of sharing, which parents know can be a touchy issue for toddlers.
We love the adjustable handle that can be easily set at two different heights. This feature promises to be a permanent fixture of fun for children as they grow taller.
The Bazoongi 48” Bouncer Trampoline is perfect for two. The 48-inch diameter makes it ideal for siblings close in age or a playdate with a friend.
Some would say this is one of the best toddler trampolines on the market, since it offers extra features including the adjustable handlebar and six legs. The fact that it can be used indoors and outdoors also makes it a positive purchase for toddlers to use all year round.
The Original Toy Company’s easy to assemble Mini Trampoline for Kids and Toddlers is very colorful, in lime green and purple.
This 36-inch diameter toy provides plenty of room for jumping and has a padded edge for extra durability. The detachable handle means it's easy to store when not in use. It measures 35 inches high, from the floor to the top of the handle, so it's large enough for children to stretch and test their flexibility.
We love that this model has no springs or bungee cords that can cause injury to children. The promise of no pinching or scratching gives parents peace of mind their child can jump with joy rather than (potential) tears.
This is perfect for children three and older.
Though not as easy to move around as other models, this trampoline offers all the benefits of rebound exercise, promising “flexibility, posture and cardiovascular health.”
The five-in-one game sound system definitely sets the Diggin JumpSmart Trampoline apart from traditional models. While jumping, children are also learning how to count and memory match, to name a few extra fun learning features.
We love the multi-game sound system, which include Musical Statues, Bounce Counting, Silly Sounds, Memory Match and Animal Sounds. While jumping on the trampoline toddlers are exercising and learning simultaneously, which is priceless.
The Diggin JumpSmart Trampoline is perfect for children who like to move and learn. It gets kids’ minds and bodies going at the same time, which is a very exciting notion for highly active children.
There's no doubt the Diggin Jumpstart Trampoline sets the bar high—no pun intended—compared with other models. The fact that it adds alternative learning as well as the benefits already offered in a child's trampoline will make it a must-buy for some.
Only a parent can decide what the best toddler trampoline is for their little one, which is why having the facts on more than a few models is helpful in making the right decision and picking the one that's best for you and your little one.
