The Best Ways To Keep Kids Off Screens!

Kids these days seem to spend far too much time on their screens, be that ipads, TV, consoles or phones and almost every parent we speak to ask us the same thing, “what’s the best way to get my kids off their screens and go out and play?” 

We think we’ve got loads of great ways to help, so here is our list of the best toys and games to get kids off their screens.


We’re yet to meet any child that doesn’t love trampolines. There’s just something magical about bouncing around, getting higher and higher and pulling off tricks that just puts a smile on every child’s face.  The laughter and happiness that trampolines bring to kids is a joy to behold!

We’ve got a huge range of trampolines from leading brands such as Berg, Vuly and Telstar.  Our range comes in all shapes and sizes and at prices to suit any budget so if you’re looking for a round trampoline, an oval trampoline, an inground trampoline or a classic above ground trampoline, we’re sure to have something that will suit your needs.
