The Little Tikes 7-foot trampoline is one of many kids trampolines on the market. It’s ideal for preschoolers and school-aged children. Made with your child’s safety in mind, it increases balance and your child’s sensory development. If you’ve had trouble keeping your kids active, this trampoline can do the trick to get them off the couch and away from electronics.
The Little Tikes trampoline weighs 75 pounds and is built to withstand outdoor elements. It has a sturdy frame, which is made with blow-molded plastic and steel. Additional steel poles are used to support the polyethylene netting that surrounds the bouncing pad. The springs are also covered with a pad protector to protect little feet if they get too close to the edge.
When assembled, the trampoline with netting stands about seven and a half feet high and has a total jumping area of 21.65 square feet. The total diameter is 7’4”. It has a ground-to-jump-surface height of 17 inches, making it easier to climb.

The manufacturer, Little Tikes, has a reputation of building quality products for preschoolers and elementary-aged children. They offer a one-year warranty on defects in the material or workmanship of the frame and a 90-day warranty for all other parts.
