Trampolines aren’t just for children to jump on. This may be their primary function but a recent survey of Aussie mums has revealed trampoline uses much more vast than that. Hey, this is PG! Get that thought out of your head.

“My son plays soccer and basketball and my daughter plays netball. So we put up a hoop and they have games on the trampoline. It’s such good training. If they can play well while jumping up and down on a trampoline then imagine how well they’ll play on a court.”
Amanda from Dandenong
“My daughter wanted a fairy-princess birthday party so I covered the trampoline is gorgeous tulle and was able to hang fairy wings all over it. I organised a special ‘pink carpet’ for her friends to walk on to climb into the trampoline and once on there we had a face painter climb on, gave them a special afternoon tea and even did the cake on there. They were in heaven.”
Mel from Christies Beach
Bunny play pen…
“Our bunny Meep is such a handful but we’ve found if she has a bit of a romp she’ll be a lot calmer for the rest of the day. So, whenever we clean out her pen we put her on our trampoline, zip up the net and she goes nuts, bouncing around. It makes it easier to catch her later too.”
Monique from Tweed Heads
“I have four young children and it’s always hard to transport them anywhere so we climb onto the trampoline for a special picnic instead. We don’t even need a blanket. I set up containers of different foods and when it’s time to jump the lids go on and off they go.”
Janelle from Penrith
