Best Square Trampoline for Kids

Looking for a fun way to engage your child in the backyard? Rather than the traditional round shape, opt for a square trampoline with different angles and corners. Square trampolines provide an increased jumping surface, great for the athletic child in your family.

While there are several manufacturers to choose from, Skywalker builds one of the best square trampolines for kids. They use advanced technology in all their models, to provide safety and comfort. Their trampolines are said to provide “a superior, soft bounce” because of the abundance of springs strategically placed along the frame.

  • The frames are made from heavy galvanized steel.
  • Due to the T-sockets attaching to each leg and enclosure joint, Skywalker’s square trampolines are safer and sturdier.
  • For added safety, the enclosure net is designed to attach to the actual jumping mat.
  • The netting is a tight weave, preventing children from hanging onto the sides and maintaining durability.

As with most trampolines, assembly is required for these trampolines. But by carefully following the manual, your equipment can be ready for use within two to three hours.
