You kids will be jumping for joy—literally!—with any one of these durable and fun toddler trampoline options.
Toddler trampolines are an excellent way for kiddos to get the wiggles out, either in your playroom or backyard, especially if you find yourself spending more time at home. And there are tons of options that are affordable and sized just right for your toddlers to burn some energy while they work on their balance and coordination.
Just be sure to keep an eye on safety:
- Constant adult supervision is a must.
- Only let one child jump on their trampoline at a time.
- Set it up on a level surface with padding or carpeting around it.
- Regularly remind the kids of the rules for safe jumping.
- Follow the weight limits on the product and discontinue use when they outgrow it.
- Avoid letting the kids do flips or any other shenanigans!
Why We’re Sticking with Mini Trampolines
Medical experts generally discourage the use of full size trampolines and trampoline parks for kids as they can result in many injuries. If you’re looking for a mini toddler trampoline with a net, this Skywalker version is very popular.
It’s larger and may raise some of the same concerns as full-size trampolines, so consider that before you purchase. And now here are our top picks for safe toddler trampolines.
Best Little Tikes Toddler Trampoline: Little Tikes 3’ Trampoline
When you think of a toddler trampoline, we bet you’re picturing something like this one. It has all the most important features: A nice-sized jumping area, cushioned bar to hold onto, and covered springs for extra safety.
You really can’t go wrong with this classic pick!
Best Toddler Trampoline with Slide: Little Tikes 7’ Climb ‘N Slide Trampoline
This Little Tikes option is more of an investment, priced around $300, but is a good choice if you already have a small indoor trampoline (so you know your kiddo likes it) or have someone (ahem, grandparents!) looking to buy a larger holiday or birthday gift. In between jumping, your kids will love climbing up onto the trampoline with the easy-to-do steps and then getting off with the slide.
(And you’ll love that you can also zip up the net around the entrance and exit to keep kids secure while jumping.)
Best Foldable Toddler Trampoline: Galt Toys Folding Trampoline
You want a trampoline, but don’t exactly want it out all the time? Totally hear you there! This Galt version allows you to fold in the legs and pop off the handle bar so you can put it in a closet or even under a couch or bed when it’s not in use.
It’s also nice that it is rectangular—most small trampolines are circular—which gives it a slightly larger jumping area, and is priced under $90.
Best Dual Purpose Indoor Toddler Trampoline: Pure Fun Ladybug Jumper Kids Trampline
Here’s a fun, multi-use addition to your playroom! This indoor trampoline, with its covered springs and cushioned handlebar, also features a plush ladybug design that comes off and can be used as a floor pillow.
We love how useful that is for taking your kids from playtime to movie night and it’s under $130!
