You Can Perfect Your Trampoline Tricks with These Bouncy Toys

'Jump Around' by House of Pain would be the perfect song to narrate the trampoline tricks you could do on these bouncy toys.

The lyrics "Jump up, jump up and get down," have never been so fitting! A wild and usually hilarious activity, trampoline jumping has many adaptations including the once famous Slam Ball, which combined basketball and trampoline jumping. Trampolining is also an Olympic sport and not a utopian backyard activity for lucky children.

Trampolines can vary greatly depending on the application and the space you have to work with. For instance, in Russia a design firm named Salto created a 170 ft trampoline through the forest as part of a design and architecture festival. Alternatively, floating water trampolines are classic summer camp favorites.
