The Plumplay Trampoline Review
Plum, also known as PlumPlay offer a fantastic range of garden trampolines from 8ft right up to 14ft so there is something for any size of garden. Plum have been in business for over 25 years so that’s a very significant amount of experience when it comes to designing, implementing and providing outdoor toys to you and other families throughout the United Kingdom and Worldwide.
You maybe looking at what range of cheap trampolines are available in the UK, we advise to look at high quality instead such as the Plum range as you tend to get what you pay for and we believe safety is much more important than price.
Plum’s trampolines have amazing features and very strong specifications with a very good range of maximum user weights and patent designs that no other trampoline manufacturer are allowed to use or implement.
Trampolines are a excellent way for children to have fun outdoors and receive very important exercise so Plum are proud of their range and the safety features included with each and every trampoline.
Many other companies may outsource design but Plum have an in-house team who constant work on the research and design of their range with a great look to their trampolines and overall giving the best bounce experience children and adults on the higher spec ranges of these awesome outdoor trampolines.
One of the patents Plum have to their name is their 3G safety enclosure system. This provides no space between the trampoline and the enclosure, also preventing children from coming into contact with the metal springs so much safer than standard trampoline designs but also providing as much jump space as possible, all looking great at the same time.
Plum have three main styles of trampoline, these at the time of writing are the Space Zone 2, the Magnitude and Whirlwind. Their Space Zone 2 is a more entry level model whereas the Magnitude is their pride and joy with the illusion of space due to the enclosure bowing inwards however the Space Zone 2 is a more traditional design with the whirlwind being based around a more quirky look and bright foams for that overall fun factor.
The Plum Whirlwind Trampoline with Safety Enclosure
We haven’t mentioned the Plum Whirlwind trampoline on Simpylfun much, however it’s available directly off of Plums Trampoline website at Plumplay.co.uk and it looks pretty quirky. It actually comes in a range of sizes which are 8ft, 10ft, 12ft and a large 14ft. With yellow uprights than bend to the right, it almost looks like it has been given a tornado shape, but you can be rest assured Plum have engineered this trampoline to be very safety and not just given it a different look for fun, escuse the pun.
This garden Plum trampoline will last your family years and has the neon swirl enclosure which is the proper name given, to protect whoever is bouncing on this trampoline from the springs giving this a great safety level.
The frame is the expected galvanised steel which you find on all of Plums range of trampoline with again as you may know already, the springs are zinc coated for a longer life and gives them this weatherproof protection.
The Plum Play Space Zone 2 Trampoline with Enclosure Netting
Plum have a great range of trampolines, the Space Zone 2 being their lowest cost option but with the same exceedingly high quality features and safety specifications.
Plum have taken great pride in the many years they have been in business in developing state of the art trampolines with safety a major priority and all models abide by the European Safety standards.
So, the Ultima 4 is their baseline model an amazing for children to play on and comes in sizes 8ft, 10ft, 12ft and 14ft so no matter what size garden you have and the age of your children, they have a Space Zone which will suit your family well.
Trampolines are a tremendous outdoor toy (PlumPlay sell a great range of other outdoor toys) but trampolines themselves offer a fantastic way for children to receive aerobic activities and cardiovascular health. Also, improving their balance and coordination but at the end of the day, a trampoline is just Simplyfun – boom boom.
The Plum Ultima 2 offers an array of features including their very strong galvanised steel frame which will last many years. This in comparison to standard steel is hands down much strong, superior and will not degrade and become a safety hazard due to increased weakness.
Plum have gone that extra mile and given their trampoline springs a zinc coating which again, gives a longer life to this very important part of a trampoline but with zinc coating, rust will have a very hard time which means rust free trampoline frames and springs.
Plum have been very busy and have their own patents as we have mentioned on previous reviews. The first to discuss here is their very efficient 3G safety enclosure system. What this does and achieves is to give the enclosure a curved design which gives the maximum space for children to play but also results in them keeping out the way of the springs which if they caught on them, could cause injury and distress.
A trampoline as we know is for jumping so a sufficient bounce but also cushioning is required to limit any GeForce on children’s feet, ankles, legs and body. Plum have their durable jump mat which gives a very good performance.
Around the edge you have sufficient padding which are waterproof and attached to the arms incase children were to collide with the enclosure. There is also adding padding over the springs as well as the frame so when you incorporate with the 3G curved system you have a fantastic play area outdoors and very safe for all ages ranges when jumping all over the place and having fun.

PlumPlay’s Magnitude Trampoline in Sizes 8ft, 10ft, 12ft and 14ft
Plum have their amazing Magnitude which is their superior trampoline which as above comes in four different sizes, the smallest being 8ft and the largest being 14t.
As you would expect with this exceptional company providing outdoor toys, it comes with the well-established galvanised steel which is incredibly strong compared to standard steel which can become weakened in a short space of time due to rust.
Whichever trampoline size you choose from in the magnitude range, all sizes are suitable for all ages of children but as we have mentioned throughout Simplyfun, we do not recommended more than one child or adult on a trampoline at once. This is to eliminate injuries via collisions which are a substantial number in the UK each year and often require hospital visits, so please be careful.
Saying that, when it comes to safety as you would expect from such a reputable company they have taken this very seriously. To the point that PlumPlay have their own patent when it comes to their safety enclosure. You don’t just get a standard safety enclosure and netting when you invest in a Plum Magnitude trampoline, you get their superb 3G curved system.
This 3G enclosure system is designed to curve which maximises the amount of space children can jump but also, due to the curve keeps the metal springs out of harm’s way. It’s very difficult for children to come into contact with the spring area, even though they are also covered in a safety protective padding.
Strength in design is one of Plums leading factors in their popularity in not just the UK, but worldwide. Another patent on top of the 3G system already mentioned above, is their Tramp Klamp system. This is a very good alternative to trampoline joints which can become weak over time. The Tramp Klamp system is a bracket based design which encases the frames joints away from Mother Nature to seek to eliminate rust as well as using the already galvanised steel frame.
A superior trampoline already to many low cost alternatives, what you also have are zinc coated springs. This prolongs their life but also helps to provide a better bounce when attached to their durable jumping mat.
When assembling this trampoline you will find the excellent leg locking system which is a push button design and helps minimise assembly time and complexity. With the spring loading too provided, the Plum Magnitude is just a joy from building to the hours, days, weeks and years of fun to be had for your children.
Each trampoline no matter what make or style has a maximum user weight that has been tested, so this is a very important number to bear in mind. Always make sure whoever is jumping on the trampoline is under the weight limit of each trampoline. If this user weight is exceeded you can have the bounce mat bottoming out and hitting the ground which could cause injury to children but also put undue pressure on the trampoline and break one of more of the parts, which again could lead to injury.
Here is a list of the maximum user weights for the Plum Magnitude –
|Maximum User Weight||12stone or 75kg||15stone 7 - 100kg||20 stone or 127kg|| 20 stone or 127kg
The Great Plum Magnitude Trampolines with Enclosure
Why the Plum Magnitude Trampoline?
The Plum Magnitude trampoline and enclosure are one of the most well know and popular trampolines available in the UK and from Plumplay.
The Plum Magnitude comes in sizes 8ft, 10ft, 12ft and 14ft with its infamous bowed enclosure giving it the sense of space. The maximum user weight for each is not as high as such companies as JumpPRO but they are designed so children of any age can bounce on their Plum trampoline for hours each day, every day of the year.
Plum have high confidence in their trampoline range with each of the Magnitudes with a superb 5 years warranty. This is significantly more than most trampoline Brands, with a heavy duty polypropylene bed, any Magnitude trampoline is an amazing investment for your children and family.

The 8ft Magnitude is a great option for your children’s first garden trampoline, especially if they are at the younger age of childhood. If they are older, then this is where maybe a 12ft or 14ft foot would be a better option but no matter what size you chose, their features are all very similar.
Plum as a company have a range of patents for parts of their design, they have their 3G curved enclosure which helps to increase the space available to bounce but keeps the springs out of children’s reach.
Each of the Magnitude trampolines are also assembled using Plum’s Tramp Klamp system which encases the joints so rust cannot take hold which in turn keeps the trampolines strength for years to come.
The frame on each magnitude has been galvanised which means this is also incredibly strong and again, helps to prevent rust buildups. In turn this leads to longer trampoline life and keeps the integrity of the steel used.

The Plum 10ft Space Zone 2 Trampoline and Safety Enclosure
The 10ft Plum Space Zone 2 trampoline is a very popular trampoline, this 10ft sized Plum trampoline comes with a safety enclosure as standard. With an extremely strong galvanised trampoline frame, this is significantly enhanced compared to standard steel which can easily gather rust and lose its strength. The galvanisation applied will give this 10ft Plum trampoline a very good long life before it would require replacing.
Plum as a trampoline company are one of the best you will find in the UK with a range of patent design features that only they can provide in their trampolines. One of these is their 3G curved enclosure which is designed to protect children from the metal springs to keep them safe but also very clever, it provides the maximum jump space available at the same time.
Moving on, each of the very strong springs is zinc coated which assists in a superb bounce experience for your children. The Space Zone 2 as can see is just excellent, following on from the original Space Zone which has been an amazingly popular trampoline for many years.
When it comes to jumping, Plum have provided an extremely durable jumping mat for a great bounce along with weatherproof pads which cover and cushion the springs and frame. If children were to run into the frame, this cushioning with help to reduce or eliminate injury.
Please allow around 2 hours to assemble this trampoline, it comes flat packed for delivery and included is a spring loading tool which assists in stretching the springs from the jump mat and connecting to the frame with ease.
We all appreciate toys need to go through vigorous testing before being allowed to go on sale for families to invest in. The EU Standards are tough and this Space Zone 2 trampoline passed the requirements with ease. This was to provide a cycle test of 1,000,000 bounces which it achieved very easily.
Please be aware, trampoline manufactures and retailers both advise only one youngster to bounce on a trampoline at once. The maximum weight limit for this 10ft Plum Space Zone 2 is 100kg which is the same as 15 ½ stone.
This means it has easily enough strength for one children, two at a push but as advised this is not recommended for safety purposes which means pretty much possible collisions. However due to the max weight being between 15 and 16 stone, many parents an adults can enjoy the fun on this trampoline and not push the trampoline to its limits.

The 8ft Plum Space Zone 2 Trampoline with Safety Enclosure
One of Plums smallest trampolines but very popular indeed, we have here the Plum 8ft Space Zone 2 trampoline along with safety enclosure and netting which by law, is to be included as well as any new trampoline in the UK.
There are some fantastic features of the Ultima 4 which will give any parent peace of mind that children are enjoying this trampoline with safety a hugely important part of their mission to provide trampolines throughout the UK and Worldwide.
Starting with, the galvanised steel frame which is a superior alternative to standard steel which is very prone to rust, deterioration and weakness which can be very bad for safety if the frame starts to buckle. With galvanised steel, this is pretty much eliminated and stay rust free but also prolongs the life of the trampoline frame due to its increased strength.
Plum provide a great range of outdoor toys, so many children are not able to play outdoors but when they can, they absolutely love a trampoline. It’s not just the fun but also the good endorphins exercise gives off which children do not realise they are receiving. Exercising on a trampoline provides a stimulus for muscle growth and strength, cardiovascular benefits, coordination and balance improvements.
To provide a better bounce and also long lasting springs, Plumplay have given each spring a zinc coating. These can then be attached to the bounce mat using the included spring loading tool, each trampoline on average can take around 2 hours to assemble with 2 adults required.
So back to the features. You have a very durable jumpmat which will keep its strength and smoothness even under sunlight whereas lower quality mats from some companies can cause the UV rays from sun to deteriorate the material and cause disintegration.
As you know, the springs and the trampoline frame are made from metal so colliding with this would be painful and possible cause injury or catching themselves on the springs. So Plum have very sufficient padding covering the springs to protect children if they do come into contact with them. Additionally, there is padding all over the frame so if they run into the metal, again minimising or hopefully eliminating any injury or upset.
The stringent safety standards a trampoline manufacturer has to perform on their products is very tough. However, Plums Space Zone 2 passed with flying colours before being released on the market for families to enjoy.
The Ultima 4 was put through a tough 1,000,000 bounces which is way over the required amount to pass. There was literally no cracking to the frame and now enjoyed by 1000’s familes around the UK. This trampoline comes flat packed in 2 boxes with easy to follow instructions, once built it has a 60cm height from the ground.
Depending on how old your children are, they may struggle to get onto it or find it easy but either way we recommend purchasing a ladder to get on and off, but unfortunately Plum to do not supply one as standards but this is quite common through trampoline manufacturers.

When it come to the frames structure and assembly, Plum have another patent design which is their Klamp Tramp bracket system which encases the joints to give even more protection from rust. This again, adds a longer life to their frame which can be another reason they offer the 5 year warranty and not a shorter length of time.
