I wonder about what trampolines are made of?

Ugh! We are going to a pump it up party on Tuesday! Ignorance is bliss.
Did a little google search on lead in trampolines...didn't find anything. They are bouncy b/c of the springs, so I would think they are entirely different from vinyl bouncy houses. You just have to be smart and a responsible jumper!

Love this pic of D2!

Trampolines are made of nylon and doesn't contain lead, as far as I can tell.

Thanks for reading!

Well, I can't decide if I'd rather know and be cautious or just not know these things. Read today's post with tips and be watchful, be careful and wash hands!

Thanks for reading!

Yes, I like this photo too. He's wearing my hat and we're at a concert at Lake Harriet! Good memories!

I worked as a Manager at a Pump It Up for over 6 years. I also did the repairs on the inflatables MYSELF! UGH!! I do notice 2 of the vendors were suppliers of equiptment for PIU. Should I get a lead test done? Disturbing no one ever informed the most at risk (employees) as I held the needle in my mouth during sewing :(
