But I was deprived of a trampoline in my youth.
Probably had a lot to do with me chipping a tooth on one at a friend's party.
And then another tooth on a different trampoline at a different friend's house....
But despite all that K and I are thinking of getting the kids a trampoline (the I-don't-want-the-electricity-bills version of Meg's heart's desire for her bday- her very own bouncing castle... Wonder where that idea came from, hey?
Anyway, we are looking at the quite reasonably priced 10ft (3m) version or the gulp inducingly priced 15 ft (4.5m) version. Nothing in between seems to be available here.
They both take weights up to 100kg and come with safety nets (and I may just buy my darlings matching mouth guards...) so the size is the only real difference.
And so the question: could two kids use a 3m trampoline simultaneously? I really don't want to spend all my spare time enforcing turn-taking. Neither do I want to stoop to buying two trampolines- tempting as it is!
Oh and mum and dad? If you'd like to assuage any guilt at not buying us kids a trampoline when we were young they are muuuuuch cheaper in Australia... and only weigh about 70 kilos.... what's a bit of excess baggage between family?
