Which toys did your toddlers really love - Page 3

on trampoline: you may be able to get an excersize trampoline cheaper, but "kid's" trampolines generally come with a bar that the child can hang onto while they jump. It is safer and kids also enjoy hanging onto the bar.

I looked at those kinds of mini trampolines too. I think it depends on the kid. Knowing my boy, he wouldn't hold onto the safety bar unless he was swinging from it or flipping over it.
It really does require constant visual supervision. We follow a few rules and I'm sure there are more.
1. one person at a time
2. walk carefully on and off the mini trampoline- no jumping on or off
3. no hard toys in hands while jumping, or masks on face, that sort of thing
4. no flips

Yep, we had one of those "kid trampolines" with the bar but got rid of it quickly because my guys refused to hold onto it and were forever banging different body parts into it. After the bloody mouth incident, out it went. We got one of the "exercise" trampolines with no bar and it is still in use! I guess if you have a child that will actually use the bar for its intended purpose, that is the better toy. I have to say that I've never met any of those kids!

I find it really interesting that so many kids scorn the bar. I go to an indoor park that has one, and I have never seen a kid not totally love the bar!! I wonder if it has to do with seeing other kids using the bar before you.

I doubt my kids would use the bar, which is one reason they do not have a kids one! But thanks for the info anyway
I think the old sofa cushions will do just fine for us
