In 2016, according to the World Health Organization, more than 40 million children under the age of five were considered overweight. Childhood obesity is on the increase, which is why it is more important than ever to get your kids active.
But how? Asking your kid to run around the block a couple of times will feel more like a punishment, and not everyone enjoys the idea of team sports. Have you thought about getting a trampoline?
It is one of the best ways to get your kids exercising without them realizing they’re even doing it. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a lot of space or a lot of money.
Whether you are getting it for your own kids, as part of a play center or for occupational therapy sessions, the AirZone trampoline is a solid choice.
It is compact in size measuring 55-inches in diameter, 58-inches in height and weighs around four pounds. Depending on your needs, it can be moved from one room to another, and is good for indoor and outdoor use. But don’t be fooled by its size. This mini trampoline is strong enough to support the most enthusiastic bouncers.
Everything about the mini trampoline is designed with safety in mind, including the six sturdy legs that keep it from falling over, and the foam-covered poles. Instead of springs, it has elastic bands, or what is referred to as a bungee cord suspension system which prevents little ones from bouncing too high.
We also like the mesh netting around the legs. Not only does it stop kids from crawling underneath; you can also see if there are items under the jumping area that could be a potential danger.
The trampoline has a weight capacity of 60 pounds, and is perfect for children between the ages of three and eight years old.
When you look at all of its features, along with the positive reviews and budget-friendly price tag, it is easy to see why the AirZone is one of the most popular choices on the market.
