Merax 36-inches Mini Trampooline
It’s not so hard to see why this mini trampoline for kids has received such an impressive rating from previous users.
The Merax has a diameter of 36 inches and a total height of 31.5 inches from the floor to the peak of the handlebar.
It is fitted with a strong polypropylene mat that, unlike most of the recent models, is attached to the frame using stainless metal springs. The spring system is covered with a cheerful light blue pad that feels impressively sturdy and we expect it to last quite a long time if the tramp is used indoors.
What makes the Merax 36’’ the best indoor trampoline for sale is that it can be used by both kids and adults. The wide handlebar is set at around 24 inches from the jumping mat and offers somewhere for your kids to latch on.
Interestingly, this handlebar can be detached to convert the Merax into an indoor trampoline for adults. However, keep in mind that it has a weight limit of 180 pounds. So, while you can have a ride once in a while, you might want something stronger such as the Jumpsport 350 reviewed in this article.
- Eye-catching design
- Usable by both kids and parents
- Very easy to assemble
- Holds up well
- Springs tend to be squeaky and noisy
- Handlebar is not extendable for adults’ use
The Original Toy Company Fold and Go
The Original Toy Company Fold and Go trampoline is just as its name suggests; you simply unfold, screw on the legs, mount the handle and let your kid bounce their way to fitness.
The process of assembling and disassembling this mini trampoline shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes (the manufacturer says 5 minutes). You’ll find this very practical especially if you have to fold it for storage after use and set it up once again when it’s time to jump again which can be upwards of 3x a day.
The Original Toy Company trampoline is 36 inches in diameter and it’s recommended for kids weighing up to 150 pounds.
- Assembles and disassembles in 5-10 minutes
- Heavy solid steel frames and legs and caps make it sturdy
- No bungee cords to replace
- High weight limit
- Risk of tipping over
Wamkos 36-inches Mini Kids Trampoline
The Wamkos 36’’ Mini Kids Trampoline is relatively new in the market but it’s already creating a really good buzz among its current users.
This model is a great go-to gift for kids with an intense flirtation with dinosaurs. It is recommended for toddlers of age 3 and up and has an amazingly high weight limit of 220 pounds (100kgs) which is the highest in this list.
The Wamko has a diameter of 36 inches and a height of 9’’ from the ground which makes it easy for pretty much most 3+-year-olds to access.
It uses springs and has a good but safe amount of bounce and the springs have been diligently covered by the dinosaur cover and a pad for safety.
What you’ll really love about this indoor trampoline for toddler is that it’s foldable for storage and easy transportation.
- Attractive kid-friendly design
- Foldable frame for easy storage
- Well-covered spring system for safety
- A handlebar would be a great bonus
EnjoyShop 7-feet trampoline with Safety Net
Our last recommendation for the best children’s indoor trampolines has been cleverly crafted to allow both outdoor and indoor use.
The materials used for the net, mat, and spring system padding are UV- and water-resistant thereby assuring you that the EnjoyShop 7’ will remain in great condition when used both indoor and outdoor. Considering its ease of moving, though, I would recommend using it indoors all through to prolong its lifetime.
This mini indoor trampoline is suitable for 3-10-year-old kids and has a weight limit of 130 pounds. Besides its kid-friendly colors, we like its u-shaped legs that guarantee more stability and reinforced t-sections that prevent structural twisting under your kid’s intense ‘workouts.’
- Usable both indoor and outdoor
- Very stable
- Attractive design
- Numerous reports of missing parts
Leaps & ReBounds Bungee Rebounder
The Leaps and Rebounds bungee rebounder might be a cheaper alternative. This model comes in 2 sizes (40’’ and 48’’) each with a weight limit of 250 pounds.
The frame and legs of this mini indoor trampoline are made of carbon steel that makes the rig strong and sturdy but also light for those moments when you’ll want to move the rebounder. Worth noting, this model has screw-in legs, and that’s to say that you can disassemble it completely for easy storage or transportation.
Even at its already low price, the Leaps and Rebounds is shipped to you free and it comes with a 30-day satisfaction or money-back guarantee. And if you buy it, you get a lifetime warranty.
- Relatively affordable
- Great satisfaction and warranty deal
- Sturdy yet lightweight
- Massive jumping area
- Straight legs may tip over with extreme workouts
Stamina 38-Inch Intone Plus Rebounder
The Stamina Intone Plus is among the most affordable rebounders in our recommendations of the best indoor trampolines for adults. Surprisingly, this model also offers the best value for money in terms of size and usability.
The first thing that most people appreciate about it is its 38-inch diameter coupled with its lightweight design. This size offers you a super compact and portable mini trampoline that you can use indoors and outdoors. But perhaps what you’ll like most is that this frame folds into 2 halves for breezy storage and easy transportation.
The Stamina Intone Plus features a heavy-duty polypropylene mat attached to the frame by bungee cords. There are reports that the mat feels a bit stiff at first, but it loosens easily after a few jumping sessions.
There are 2 features of the Stamina Intone Plus that you won’t find in most indoor trampolines for adults at this price range. The first is a pair of resistance tubes with heavily padded handles. These tubes add versatility to your exercises by targeting your upper body (arm, shoulder, chest, and back). Secondly, this indoor mini trampoline has a multi-functional electronic monitor that tracks the number of jumps made, total workout time, and the calories made among other parameters.
- Competitively price
- Compact and foldable for storage
- Has an electronic monitor
- Has tubes for upper body workouts
- Assembly instructions aren't clear
- Supports 250-lbs max
MaXimus HIIT Bounce PRO
The Maximus HIIT Pro is a few bucks pricier than the Stamina Intone Plus- but for a few solid reasons. Let’s start with its weight capacity. This rebounder blows the Stamina out of the water with its weight limit of 330 pounds. This high weight allowance means that it can accommodate heavier people comfortably and safely.
To add to its high weight limit, the Maximus HIIT Bounce Pro is fairly built and sturdy. We like it when a manufacturer eliminates all fears that come with jumping on an indoor trampoline- and Maximus does just that with their workmanship.
This rebounder is 40 inches in diameter, so it has a notably wider jumping surface too. Its rebounding surface is moisture-wicking to reduce slippage and has an optic white border to alert you of the coil system.
Speaking of the coil system, the Maximus HIIT Bounce Pro is fitted with 32 long springs that require minimal to zero breaking-in. This means you can start toning your back, abdomen, and leg muscles right away.
But what makes this unit one of the best indoor trampolines without net for adults is its spring-loaded legs. This design adds intensity to your workouts by allowing you to use the mat in both flat and inclined positions.
What’s more, this trampoline can fold into quarter its size. This folding mechanism, coupled with the collapsible legs, offers you a rebounder that you can easily slip under a sofa after your workout session. This is excellent if you want to save every inch of your floor space.
- Compact fold
- Use in flat or incline positions
- Quarter fold for easy transportation
- High weight limit
- Springs require oiling to keep them quiet
- Folding requires mastering at first
JumpSport 350 Fitness Trampoline
Boasting a heavy-duty steel frame and sturdily welded arched legs to prevent tipping over, the Jumpsport 350 is our top pick for the best indoor exercise trampoline for adults.
This rebounder offers a jumping surface area of 510 sq. in. on the mat, and a total of 915 sq. in. of workout area with the skirt.
The 350 is marketed to both novice and experienced trampoline users. It uses 30 bungee cords that are rated at 800K bounce cycles and has a weight limit of 275 pounds.
Depending on your experience or exercise needs, you can adjust the firmness of the cords in 3 levels. This also makes it a great tramp for multiple users.
- High-quality construction
- Quiet jumps
- A large usable jumping surface
- Adjustable firmness levels add versatility
- Replacing bungee cords can be costly down the road
Wamkos 40″ Rebounder
If you’re after the most affordable indoor trampoline for sale, the Wamkos 40″ mini-trampoline could be what you want. This is a fairly built mini rebounder too, but we’d like to alert you to its 220-pound weight limit. This capacity makes it ideal for lightweight individuals and children.
If this load capacity favors you, you’ll be delighted at how easy it is to set up this rebounder. Most of its current users report that they have been able to get it ready in around 10 minutes since it comes almost fully assembled. The Wamkos comes folded in 2 halves with the springs already on. So, set up involves unfolding it and getting the cover over the springs.
The Wamkos has a very strong and sturdy build. It uses 32 springs that are super easy to replace and a heavy-duty high resistant polypropylene mat. For your safety, the spring cover is heavily padded to minimize the risk of injuries, and the legs have rubber feet to prevent slippage. These feet won’t scuff your non-carpeted floors. Again, they won’t sink and tip over when exercising on the grass.
Without forgetting, the Wamkos comes with a pair of resistance bands, so you’ll be getting a full-body workout.
- Sleek design
- Lightweight for portability
- Comes mostly assembled
- Relatively low weight limit
- Springs tend to make some noise
BCAN 40″ Foldable Mini Trampoline
The BCAN 40″ might interest you if you want an indoor fitness mini trampoline that can be used by the entire family. The 330-pound maximum load capacity says it all.
But what makes it an excellent mini trampoline for the family is its height-adjustable handle. This handle can telescope from a height of 32 inches to 42 inches using a pair of knobs. This adjustability makes the BCAN usable by almost everyone in the family. Notably, this is an incredible way of saving money since you don’t have to get 2 separate trampolines for adults and kids. The handle is nicely padded for most comfort and stability, and you can also remove it easily if you want to jump without it.
Switching gear to other critical components, the mat is made of resistant PP material, and the springs are thick steel. These springs may start making some noise after some time, but a little oil should make them quiet again.
Lastly, we like that you can fold this trampoline into a quarter of its size, so it’s easy to squeeze it into a closet or slide it under the bed for storage. It will occupy minimal space in your car’s trunk too, whenever you want to travel with it.
Important to mention, this manufacturer offers you a one-year warranty for the safety pad, mat, frame, and handle.
- Incredible warranty deal
- Stellar customer service
- Height-adjustable handle
- Accommodates the entire family
- Folding is tricky at first
There’s no doubting that jumping on a trampoline has tons of benefits both for the kids and adults. Trampoline jumping offers a great whole-body workout that boosts your heart rate and strengthens your muscles besides helping you deal with stress.
For little ones, simply jumping on a tramp helps in boosting their balance and coordination and also helps them to be persistent. This improvement is noticeable even in their class performance over time. Therefore, parents often think about arranging indoor play centers.
Like everything else, though, there’s nothing like the best indoor trampoline for everybody. This is why any model, regardless of the price and sophistication, has its share of positive and negative feedback from its previous users.
There are a few critical aspects to consider when choosing the best indoor fitness trampoline. Here are a few essential tips from our review team;
Fitness trampolines usually have the manufacturer recommended weight limit indicated somewhere in the specs. Most indoor trampolines for kids have a weight limit range of between 50 and 200 lbs. On the other hand, some adult fitness trampolines can withstand weights well over 300 pounds, for instance, the Maximus HIIT Pro. If there will be more than one person using the rebounder, going for a higher weight limit will make more sense.
Fitness rebounders come in varying frame-to-frame diameters ranging from 3 to 4 feet (38-50 inches). Usually, a larger trampoline offers more jumping surface, which is great for an adventurous user. But keep in mind that a big fitness trampoline will occupy more real estate wherever you decide to put it in your house. If you’re already struggling with space, we’d suggest measuring the available space first and then get a rebounder that will fit there.
You must have heard that the bounciest rebounders aren’t necessarily the best- and this is true. However, at Trampolines Guide, we say the ideal bounce level in a mini trampoline depends on what you’ll be doing. Low bounce rebounders are the best for kicking your lymph flow into high gear. Equally important, a high bounce mini trampoline is the best for cardio exercises, such as star jumps and high knees.
While these 2 names are commonly interchanged and used to mean the same thing, an indoor mini trampoline is just that… a small trampoline that in most instances comes with an enclosure system and it’s generally meant for kids. The Sportpower My First Trampoline and the Giantex 7′ Trampoline are good examples here.
The main advantage that these models offer is their advanced safety levels. Most kids also seem to get attached so easily since these models are similar to an adult-size trampoline in design and functionality.
An indoor rebounder, on the other hand, is more or less a mini trampoline minus the enclosure system. These models are great for exercise and are actually known as exercise trampolines.
Depending on the model and brand, a rebounder may use either bungee cords or springs. Bungee cords are slowly becoming more popular since they are quieter and much safer. The only issue is that replacing them might prove very expensive in the long run.
Spring rebounders offer a better bounce and are relatively cheaper. On the downside, they are squeaky and noisy and might rattle the entire household when you decide to jump on a trampoline during odd hours.
The size of the best trampoline will depend on the intended user and the type of exercises that you’ll be engaging in. All in all, you want a model that offers enough workout surface if you are buying a mini trampoline for exercise for adults. For kids, the mini-trampoline should allow them to move and jump safely without the fear of falling off the mat.
Consider the type and quality of the materials used for the tramp ranging from the frame to the mat, springs, and enclosure (if there’s one).
Indoor trampolines use either welded or screw-in legs. The former tend to be the most popular since they are the sturdiest. Screw-in legs, on the other hand, have the upper hand in terms of storage since they are easy to disassemble for compact storage.
The availability of a warranty on the trampoline itself and its parts plays an important role when buying an indoor trampoline. The warranty period depends directly on the manufacturer. The minimum warranty period for a trampoline frame and jumping surface is 1 year, for the trampoline frame pad – 6 months. There is also a short-duration warranty for all other parts such as enclosure net and frame, springs, and some accessories – 3 months.
It is important to pay attention to the fact that indoor trampoline warranty covers only manufacturing defects. The defects that are caused by misuse, natural disasters, bad weather conditions are not covered by the warranty.
Of course, you don’t want a tramp that puts your wellbeing and that of your kids at risk. Consider the safety features that the manufacturer has put in place to guarantee the users’ safety. Depending on the type of tramp and the intended user, these features may include a safety enclosure, arched legs, a padded spring/bungee cord system, and a handlebar.
An indoor trampoline is a great way to burn off some energy indoors when the weather is a big obstacle to do it outside. Most of these models are much more affordable than their full-size alternatives yet they pack a lot of indoor fun and great health benefits.
