In a move away from their usual tear-jerking storylines, this year we see Buster the Boxer making the most of little girl Bridget’s Christmas present- a large trampoline in the garden. Bringing back memories of hours spent bouncing up and down in our own backyards, this ad is sure to bring a surge in popularity for this classic play equipment.

If you want to bring a bit of bounce to your children (or dog) this Christmas, take a look at our pick of the best trampolines of 2016.

1. Plum Space Zone II Trampoline

If you want the exact trampoline featured in the advert, this is it. This ten foot toy is suitable for children aged six and up and is made from galvanised steel, meaning it won’t start rusting when it rains.


2. We R Sports Trampoline

If you’ve got a smaller garden and don’t fancy turning the entire thing into a bouncing zone, this is a good option as, at six feet wide, it’s one of the smaller options available. Despite being compact, it still comes with an enclosure and ladder as well as safety padding on the springs.

3. Plum Latitude Tramoline

Looking more like a spacecraft than a trampoline, this ultra-modern model is 14 feet wide- so if you’ve got sprawling outside space, this is a good choice for you. The 3G enclosure is inside the springs and the safety pads double up as a protective cover in bad weather.

4. Zero Gravity Ultima 4 High Spec Trampoline

Zero Gravity has been making trampolines for over ten years and uses weldless steel frames, unlike other companies. This means that the joints are a lot more secure and can take more strain than other models.


5. Up and About Rectangular Trampoline

Being rectangular, this one is more in line with the professional trampolines that you would find in a gym. It’s quite large; measuring eight by twelve feet, but shape wise, is a better space saver than most.


6. Sportspower Trampoline

For its size, this ten foot trampoline is offered at a highly competitive price and can be easily assembled by two adults in around two hours. It can also take up to 100 kilos in weight, so even the adults can get involved.
