In brief: Possibly

Pro: your kids will love it and will stay healthy by using it.
It gives them something to do that does not require hands on from you con: there are know injuries from such equipment and it is an "attractive nuisance" which could injury someone else's kid if you are not supervising and this can lead to some liability.
