For many years now we have wanted to get a trampoline. But not just any trampoline, a Springfree trampoline. Friends of ours in New Zealand had one and their kids loved it (and still do). The inventor of the trampoline is also an engineer at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch where Ben used to work.
We finally got one! We got the large square and it is fabulous fun.
It says in the small print that children should jump one at a time but that’ll never happen. I even jumped with them for a bit and this was probably a bad idea because of the double-bounce effect which was greater when I was on it. I haven’t laughed so heartily in a long time. It seems to be good exercise too because I was out of breath but that might have been because I couldn’t stop laughing.
