In 2011, the recipient of the annual toy collection run by Australian Toy, Hobby and Nursery Fair was Variety, the Children’s Charity. The purpose of Variety is to provide life opportunities through the provision of equipment, experiences and community support for special needs children. Variety also acts as an umbrella organisation, providing support to many other children’s groups and charities as well as raising funds for its own initiatives.
In the spirit of charity, giving thanks and sharing the joy of trampolining with others, Vuly was proud and privileged to be able to donate an 8 ft Vuly Trampoline to Variety on the last day of the Fair. Together with donations from other organisations at the Fair, over $6000 worth of goods has gone into the hands of many needy children via Variety’s many programs.
Vuly is proud of it’s association with Variety and looks forward to putting smiles on Australian children’s faces with it’s donation of an 8 ft Vuly Trampoline.

As Vuly’s Retailer Program, Vuly Wholesale, gets into full swing this week, there has never been a better time to introduce the team of Vuly Trade Account Specialists who will be helping retailers to reach their sales and organisational goals with Vuly. Vuly Trade Account Specialists are motivated and creative team individuals who help retailers to become their own specialists in retailing Vuly trampoline products.
So, without further ado, say hello to the friendly faces you’ll be seeing a lot more of with Vuly Wholesale!
I conducted a short interview with a key member of the Vuly Wholesale team, Ben Rech, to gain insight into what he has planned for retailers apart of the Vuly Retailer Program.
Bella: What are you personally most excited about with the launch of Vuly’s Retailer Program?
Ben: I’m looking forward to meet a new demographic of customers. At the moment, we primarily deal with customers who are interested in the consumption of our product. It’s going to be exciting to deal with people who are interested in retailing Vuly products and are also focused on best meeting their customers’ needs.
Bella: What does Vuly have in store for the retailers apart of the Vuly Retailer Program?
Ben: We want to give retailers the best product for the best price, and also generate greater awareness of trampoline retail. Vuly provides all retailers who are approved for credit accounts with a Point of Sale (“POS”) Display to promote Vuly trampoline products in their store/s. I think that this is going to solve the age-old problem that confronts trampoline retailers – not being able to have a display trampoline because they are limited in space.
Bella: Thanks, Ben!

What’s with the weather?!
In my little spot in Brisbane, it has rained for two months, stormed (or rather, cycloned) and now we’re in a heatwave!
I don’t know about you, but I’m keen to make the most of the sunny weather and finally get some outdoor exercise. The rain has subsided and there is only three weeks left of summer – just enough time to hop onto my Vuly trampoline and get my bounce on!
Until midnight tomorrow, we are giving away a FREE trampoline tent valued up to $140.00 to every customer who purchases any-sized Vuly trampoline and net. Now you can get some much needed shade on your trampoline as the sun finally returns to remind us of the true spirit of Australian summer!
Today, different types of trampolines are everywhere, including in the water.
Water trampolines consists of a large doughnut like rubber piece, inflated with air, allowing the trampoline to float above the forgiving surface of lakes and pools.
Although water trampolines eliminate many of the conventional jumping concerns, they are not without their unique risks. Here are some guidelines we recommend that you following in using your water trampoline:
- Never swim below a water trampoline while it is in use
- Discover and remove all potential obstructions beneath the water trampoline
- Be aware that currents may drag objects into the jumping area and may pose a safety hazard to jumpers
- Use the water trampoline only in clean, clear water
- Use the water trampoline in water that is not shallow
- Always use the water trampoline under adult supervision
When choosing such a water trampoline for your family, make sure that it is constructed from high quality materials, such as PVC, and that the seams are are strongly manufactured. A repair kit that is easy to use should also be provided with the water trampoline when you purchase it. This will ensure that you can easily patch up any small holes that develop.
Attention, readers of My Sportslink and all toy and sports retailers alike!

The article discusses the origin of the Vuly name (which was derived from the Ancient Roman God of Smithery, Vulcan) and how Ancient Roman principles contribute to Vuly’s progressive business strategy. When asked about Vuly’s success in recent years, Joe Andon, Vuly CEO, puts it down to “good design, user safety, a ‘special’ top team, along with great value for money”. Says Joe, “our growth, year-on-year, has been incredibly exponential and we are all working hard to continue that”.

When phones get especially busy here at our Head Office (and believe me, they do!), I answer the phone to help out our Customer Service Reps. Since I field a lot of phone calls from customers about trampoline do’s and dont’s, I’ve decided to start up a central reference section for you all called “Trampoline Myth Busters”. In this blog, I’ll attempt to uncover the answers to some of the questions you’ve asked me throughout the week about Vuly, our trampoline products or just trampolines in general.
Want to know whether you can dig your trampoline into the ground? Trampoline Myth Busters will let you know if it’s possible!
Here are some of your top questions this week, BUSTED!
- How much space should I leave around my trampoline?
Vuly recommends that you leave a foot clearance around the perimeter of your trampoline. Since your trampoline net will give a little bit as you jump into it, this space will allow you to bounce comfortably in the trampoline enclosure without bumping into any obstructions outside the trampoline. Keep your trampoline away from any abrasive materials such as fences, trees or bushes, which could snag onto your trampoline net and cause it to tear.
- Can my Vuly trampoline be left outside in all weather seasons?
Yes! Your Vuly trampoline is a durable piece of equipment which is designed to be kept outdoors and withstand a variety of weather conditions. To protect your trampoline from harmful sun exposure which may deteriorate your trampoline over time, invest in a Vuly trampoline tent to protect your trampoline safety padding and trampoline net during the warmer summer months. But what about winter, I hear you ask? Not to worry, Vuly’s trampoline tents will also stop rain water from pooling on your trampoline safety padding during the coldest months of the year.
- Can I order green coloured safety pads for my Vuly trampoline instead of the blue?
Fortunately for you, our trampoline safety padding is double-sided, so you’ll receive both green and blue safety pads when you order a Vuly trampoline. Control the look of your trampoline by rotating your designer trampoline safety padding in Green Funky Free print or Classic Blue.
If you have any questions you’d like answered, post them to this blog and I’ll answer them as soon as I can! Remember – there is no such thing as a stupid question when it comes to your family’s safety on the trampoline.
