    Default 6 ft trampoline-anyone got one

    I rent and hate the thought of taking apart a big trampoline each time we need to move but I saw these small 6ft versions that might be easier to manage.

    DS turns 3 soon but I'm thinking more for Christmas. My questions is, is it worth it? They cost about $150

    Nope - my SIL gave us her 6ft one when DS was born which was great when DS was 1 but now at 3 he has a 12 ft one and loves it- he can play easily with 3 or 4 other kids and we get on it with him as well so unless you move every. 6 months I'd go the bigger one now cause he will outgrow it very quickly

    we have an 8ft one ... and it is small, but DD does still love it.

    She has certainly got our money's worth out of it anyway.

    Having said that - I dont see that taking apart a big one or a small one would be that much different, so if you have room, I would get an 8 or 10 ft one. (the smaller they are the less bouncy, so 6 ft wouldnt be very springy)

    Those are pretty tiny. We had a 14 foot one but I have 2 kids. I would look at an 8 foot one.

    We have an 8ft one we got on sale at Rays Outdoors for $50!!! So for that price I wasn't too concerned about the size. My DD is 2.5 and it's fine for her and a few little friends now but when she gets bigger/older we will need to upgrade.

    A friend has a 6ft trampoline and you can't really have more than one kid on it at a time; it's far too small.
    We have a 9ft and that extra 3ft makes a huge difference.

    We have an 8ft trampoline that was given to us. It doesn't have a net or anything so makes it seem bigger. I have 2 kids 5 and 3 and they have more then enough room to bounce around. I personally wouldn't get a 6ft one cause with a net around it they are ridiculously tiny

    We just got a 6ft one for our little girls 1st birthday and it seems good so far. We'll get a bigger one when necessary but I reckon this will work well for the next few years.

    This. We've got a 12 foot trampoline and kids love it. You need a big backyard though as it's pretty large.
