Hi I am thinking of getting our kids either a swing set or trampoline for Xmas, But I’m not sure which one to choose.

With a trampoline all you can pretty much do is jump but with a swing set you can do so much more.
Swing on swings, Go down a slide etc.

Which one would you pick as a christmas present? and which one do you think would get used more?

thanks ;)

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • I would lean more towards the swing set, as you say there’s more activities. Maybe add a trampoline later, my kids loved theirs



  • I would say swing set, but both options are good.



  • I would say trampoline



  • I would go for a swing set,alot safer!



  • Having had both I can say ours chose to spend far more time in the trampoline!
    Goodluck with your decision & im sure they ll love either gift !
    But … make sure it’s up & ready for xmas morning ….????????



  • Trampoline for sure – best money I have EVER spent on my son. BTW, you can always get swing sets for free, if you look on gumtree too.



  • Definitely trampoline. One of the best in the market is Vully. The kids will play and have lots of fun for a long time.



  • trampoline, It was the favorite in our house when I grew up. Swings are great for young kids but trampoline will keep them happy even as they grow.



  • Without doubt a trampoline. My boys love ours so much.



  • lol well we have both! we had a seperate swing and tramp set until the cylcone came through lol. the swings had faded and cracked in the sun and the tramp was ripped from a tree. so we replaced it all and bought a swing set with the tramp off the side. Just like the one in the pic



  • They are both excellent options and truth be told, you will probably end up with both. Which are the kids asking for? We have both and love them both – the trampoline is great for the whole family, so if your kids want mum and dad to join in too, then the trampoline is a great option. The trampoline is also great during play dates – for some reason its the one piece of equipment they all gather on. Ultimately, it depends on what your kids like, your budget and space available at home.



  • It depends on their ages? Both are pretty good pieces of play equipment. Do the kids like jumping, sliding or swinging the most? Swing sets are a good start and then you can move onto a trampoline at a later stage.



  • My daughter 7 wanted a swing set



  • How old are the kids? If they are young I’d probably go with the swing set. If they are older with the trampoline.
