Little Tikes 7 Trampoline Review
Little feet love to jump. And keeping kids occupied in physical activities can be challenging if you have a small yard or are in the sporting off-season.
The Little Tikes 7’ trampoline is an ideal solution for keeping toddler and elementary-aged children engaged in constructive physical play. Not only is it fun and easy to use, but it has plenty of built-in safety measures to keep young jumpers from getting injured while playing.
Little Tikes 7 Trampoline Features
From its well-thought-out design to small details that make the it really stand out, the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline is sure to please.
The Little Tikes 7’ trampoline boasts a blow-molded plastic and steel frame to keep the trampoline steady during use. Sturdy legs keep it from tipping, which adds to the overall safety of this trampoline.
Additionally, all elements, including the jump surface and enclosure components are weatherproof. You can keep the trampoline out during any weather without worrying about pieces becoming too worn by the elements.
With its jump surface wholly enclosed by netting, the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline keeps jumpers safe within its bounds. The netting limits the likelihood of falls from the trampoline and minimizes the threat of injury from such falls.
A durable spring cover keeps clothing and hair from becoming trapped in the springs, should a jumper fall in that area. Overall, the safety features make this trampoline a standout in the safety department.
Made with kids in mind
From its fun and colorful design - that isn’t so garish it’ll send your neighbors running to the homeowner’s association - some smaller details, this trampoline is tastefully kid-friendly. Bright orange accents make the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline approachable.
An included shoe storage pocket gives little ones a place to store their sneakers while they jump. And a low ground to surface height makes it the perfect height for climbing right in.
Ample room for one jumper
With ample jumping space and a jump target right in the center, this trampoline is best suited to solo jumping. It gives children plenty of room to move around and be active within the enclosed space, without getting bored of bouncing in the same spot over and over.
Designed for outdoor use
The Little Tikes 7’ trampoline has a durable design that makes it ideal for outdoor use. It’s over seven feet tall and wide, which fits well in the yard but not in the living room.
Whether you have many long warm months to enjoy the trampoline or need to put it away during the winter, it’s a great place to let kids exercise solo, with adult supervision, of course.
- Give children hours of entertaining healthy movement by playing on the trampoline

- The trampoline is only recommended for one jumper at a time, which could be a challenge for families with multiple children or during play dates when children want to play together. Jumping alone isn’t much fun.

- Designed for fun with fun colors and an intuitive jump space marked for landing
- Large jump surface gives kids room to explore without accidentally jumping or falling off of the trampoline

What is the weight limit for this trampoline?
The manufacturer’s recommended weight limit for the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline is 100 pounds. To ensure jumper safety, it is not recommended to exceed this weight limit.
Can multiple kids jump at once?
No, multiple users should not operate the trampoline at once. Not only do multiple children jumping increase the likelihood of exceeding the weight limit, but the trampoline itself is designed to safely be operated by a single user. Additionally, adding multiple children increases the likelihood of a collision or fall during jumping.
Is this a good indoor toy for the long, cold winter months?
No, the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline is designed for outdoor use exclusively and is not safe to use indoors. If you’re concerned that the winter weather may damage your trampoline in some way, it is recommended to disassemble it and store the piece during those months.
I recommend the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline for parents of one child. It’s a great way to get kids outdoors and help them to burn off some extra energy, while meeting recommended daily exercise standards.
For parents of multiple children, the Little Tikes 7’ trampoline may spark some conflict if two similarly aged children are particularly interested in using it. This is not deal breaker, and solo jumping is typically recommended for children’s trampolines, so I still recommend the trampoline for its safety features and kid-friendly design.
