I want to get 3.5 year old dd a trampoline for x-mas. Any suggestions? Do you love (or hate) yours?

we have an <a href="http://www.hayneedleshopping.com/general/kidsfoldingtrampoline.cfm?TID=GAL047&source=gaffiliates" target="_blank">indoor one</a> that is perfect for our DD (almost 3 now)<br><br>
we paid less than this one, though, I think $100 including shipping last year.

We have this one & DS loves it!<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FDiggin-Active-00135-JumpSmart-Trampoline%2Fdp%2FB00264GIFO%2Fref%3Dsr_1_2%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dtoys-and-games%26qid%3D1259617809%26sr%3D8-2-spell" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Diggin-Active-...9&sr=8-2-spell</a><br><br>
This looks like a slightly lower model, because ours has a panel that plays all these little songs & noises & numbers to get DS supre riled up. It gets out sooooo much energy!<br><br>
I got ours off of craig's list, but that model I linked too seems to be on super sale today. Not a bad deal. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Actually, it looks like it ships from Target, so if you have any coupon codes for them or a gift card, now would be the time to cash in!<br><br>
Oh, here's the one I have, a little more: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FJumpsmart-TRJS-Jump-Smart%2Fdp%2FB000ETRFRS%2Fref%3Dpd_sim_t_1" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Jumpsmart-TRJS...ref=pd_sim_t_1</a><br><br>
The only thing that is a "negative" is that it is triangle shaped, and it can be a little clunky to move or tuck in a corner. But it is very big - I've had 3 kids on it - and I don't feel bad b/c it holds up to 85 lbs.

We have the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FBazoongi-Bouncer-Youth-Trampoline-Blue%2Fdp%2FB0025HS38M%2Fref%3Dsr_1_4%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dtoys-and-games%26qid%3D1259646678%26sr%3D8-4" target="_blank">Bazoongi 48" Bouncer</a> with adjustable handlebar (in blue; also comes in pink).<br><br>
It's big (48" across) and while it's officially for one at a time, all 3 of my boys (2, 5, and 7.5) can jump on it together and don't get hurt. The bar is important to me as they were learning to jump, and for the 2yo, especially. It has a weight capacity of 100lbs, I believe, which is one of the highest I found, if not THE highest.<br><br>
It was not too hard to put together, though the instructions are LESS than clear. We had to dismantle part of it because we realized it was backwards/upside down, despite trying to match the diagram. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
My only other complaint is that the foam on the handle bar comes off VERY easily - at least when you have a 2yo who likes to bite things. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> I'd like to find a denser foam and cover it with a fabric sleeve to replace it, but at this point, we're dealing with a naked bar. Still, we've had very little in the way of injury on it. The worst is when someone goes UNDER the trampoline. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Of course the size does make it a little tricky as it's always out, and it takes up a fair bit of room. But, it is light and can stand up on an end if you really need it put up for a while. I'm eager to have a game room for the boys so it won't be in the main areas of the house, but as it is it captivates every child who enters, so they're always happy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
