The summer holidays are coming up and parents will be looking for new ways to entertain the kids while holiday’s abroad are off the cards for many.
An image of a trampoline from Amazon was posted on Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK and while the initial idea looks like fun, shoppers were quick to point out the danger.
The trampoline pictured has a water sprinkler attached.
While sprinklers can be helpful to keep cool in the summer, commented flooded the post, pointing out just how dangerous the trampoline really is.
Posting on Facebook, the group showcased the “trampoline sprinkler”, an addition to a trampoline and it quickly gathered over 2k comments.
Some mums thought it looked like a fun accessory, one commenting: “bet the girls would love this. Have to get another trampoline lol”
Another added: “The kids would love this!”
However, others were quick to see the concerning flaw.
“Looks like a trip to A&E to me”, one said.
“Great to slip up and break your neck” Another added.
A third wrote: “All I can think about is when you’re bouncing you gonna slip around on your ankle hurt your back this is so dangerous well for me anyway.”
“Pre book an appointment with your local A&E before you use it.”

However another defended the trampoline sprinkler accessory, interjecting: “My little girl is 5 and has had one the past two years. No accidents or broken bones here. She loves it and is safe enough with the net around it.”
