As you all know, Springfree Trampoline is the number one trampoline for safety. We want your children – whether they’re a ghost, a witch or a superhero – to stay safe this Halloween.
Follow these easy tips for a safe night of trick-or-treating:
• Plan your route with your kids before you head out and be sure to stay in familiar neighborhoods.
• Accompany your children trick-or-treating or ensure that they are under the supervision of a trusted adult.
• Watch out for the jack-o-lanterns on the doorsteps as open flame can be dangerous for young kids. Halloween is one of the top five days for candle fires.
• Stay on the sidewalk as unpaved roads and lawns can be a tripping hazard.
• Look both ways before crossing the street for oncoming traffic.
• Increase visibility of your kids by putting them in brightly colored costumes and by using a flashlight or glowsticks.
• Wear layers to make sure you and your kids are warm and comfortable for the outdoors.

From all of us at Springfree Trampoline, we wish you a fun and safe Halloween. BOO!
Camp Quality’s Main Camp kicked off (or should I say bounced off) yesterday on the Sunshine Coast.
This camp is for diagnosed children aged between 9 and 13 years and there was laughter all around. Springfree™ Trampoline has been a Camp Quality supporter all year, donating thousands of dollars and providing their camps with Springfree™Trampolines to add just a little more laughter into their day.
Greeted by volunteer supervisers, who were Friendly, enthusiastic and funny, I got a feel of what it must be like to be at one of these highly praised and reputable Camps. Everyone was in such high spirits and there was an inspirational aura around the camp. Maybe it was because of the strength and courage of some of the kids that attended the camp, or maybe it was the attitude of the organisers and volunteers? Whatever the reason, no one does Fun Therapy quite like Camp Quality.
I wonder if I can conjure up some excuse to go back tomorrow. I heard they are having a Talent Contest…

Who said that tennis was only to be played on a court! Here at Springfree we have what we call the ‘SPRINGFREE OPEN GRAND JUMP TOURNAMENT’.
With a few words of friendly banter and way too many ‘Come On’s’, we are ready to go. With one person in the Springfree™ Trampoline and one outside running crazily around the Springfree™ trying to return the ball back inside it is great fun for the whole family. It’s much harder than you think and is a fantastic work-out.
A Spot Of Springfree Tennis Anyone?
By far the best rally ever was between Federer and Hewitt…

We all know jumping can keep kids occupied for hours, but a nice way to add a little extra spice is by introducing some balls into the mix! Here is a Springfree™ Trampoline favourite – POISON BALL!!! Why don’t you give it a go at home!
“POISON RED BALLS” Nelson lasted 60 seconds!
What you need:
2 – 6 soft Air balls all different colours (These are cheap as chips and will provide loads of giggles – not to mention the enormous developmental benefits!)
Soft Air filled balls are the best and safest to use!
The aim is to choose a colour that is the evil Poison ball and at all measures avoid touching this ball whilst jumping. Of course the only safe way is one jumper at time so why not record how long you can jump without touching the Poison Ball and then swap with a friend to see who the best poison ball jumper is!
TOO EASY? Put three of the same colour balls in the Springfree™ Trampoline and you have to avoid all three! Good luck…
Stay tuned for loads more exciting ball games. Do you have an even better game that you play on your trampoline? Tell us here by leaving a comment or posting on the Springfree™ Trampoline Facebook fan page so we can all have a go!

Your mother probably told you this when you were young, and you’re still hearing it!
But there’s a good reason! No denying kids love to play together; it’s a very natural thing. We’re social creatures after all! However when it comes to jumping on your Springfree Trampoline, one at a time is the ONLY safe way.
Now Springfree don’t mean to sound like the Grinch of playtime but unfortunately 17 % of trampoline related injuries still occur due to the collision of more than one person jumping at a time. At Springfree, YOUR SAFETY is our priority – after all, that’s why we created the Worlds Safest Trampoline!!
A Springfree Sleep Out
There are so many other activities you can do on your Springfree – add chalk and it becomes the world’s coolest hugest chalk board, grab your story books and soft toys and it becomes a great quiet place to curl up and read, or our favourite – grab your sleeping bag and do some star gazing or even have a sleep out! There are heaps of safe play activities you can do on your Springfree, just remember that one at a time is the only way to ensure you’re safe!
