There are a whole variety of items you can buy to soup up your trampoline to the max, as well as safety extras to keep your kids (and the surrounding area) out of harm.

From tents to sprinklers and even safety must-haves like a ladder and an anchor kit to keep the trampoline secure to the ground, we've picked some of our favourite trampoline accessories which we think are bound to excite and delight and keep your children safe at all times.
