As concerned parents tot up the hours their children are watching TV, and gasp in horror at images of a 14 stone eight year old, finding a fun way to keep kids healthy and active is top of the agenda. It can be a tough call to persuade Jack or Jenny to swap their Xbox for Reeboks, but just in time to get those Easter bunnies bouncing, online kids' department store The Kids Window announces the availability of Octa Jump(TM), the safest choice for a home trampoline, from March 2007.

With an Octa Jump(TM) set up in the back garden, children can simply play themselves fit. Just a few minutes trampolining a day improves balance and co-ordination, tones muscles, and exercises the heart as much as running a mile*, while at the same time benefiting from Octa Jump(TM)'s exclusive safety features.
Jason Lewis, director of The Kids Window, says: "Mums and dads can rest assured that Octa Jump(TM) is the safest option without compromising enjoyment. Whilst we recommend that only one child at a time uses a trampoline, we recognise that from time to time this can be difficult to ensure. But two or more users of a conventional round trampoline risk collision, especially with children of unequal size: a smaller child with less body weight is five times more likely to suffer an injury**. So unlike round trampolines, which throw jumpers back into the centre of the mat, the octagonal design of Octa Jump(TM) avoids this and users can enjoy a softer, better-controlled bounce."
For added peace of mind, the Octa Jump(TM) comes with extra thick 40mm foam padding that covers the springs and frame to protect against bumps and bruises. A safety net is also included which completely surrounds the jumping area to ensure kids don't take a tumble on to the tarmac.
The Kids Window sells Octa Jump(TM) for £365 plus £19.99 delivery.
