Are You Considering Renting a Bounce House?

I remember when my kids were little and tossed around the idea of using a bounce house for a birthday party. I’d heard it was the best money ever spent, and a great way to keep a lot of kids entertained and get them to burn off a lot of energy.

One of the biggest reasons I chose not to rent one of those inflatable bouncers was because I’m not the type of person that likes to spend a lot of money of huge birthday parties. I have this theory that you can be on a budget and still have tons of fun. However, I do regret not renting a bouncer.

But here’s how I see things when it comes to parties. It does not pay to break the piggy bank just to impress the neighborhood or your child’s friend’s parents when it comes to who can throw the biggest bash ever. Keeping things simple in my opinion is the best route to go.

However, sometimes it’s nice to give in just a little when it comes to your child and when you have a lot of kids, you’re going to need a way to entertain them. My neighbor had rented one of those big bouncing inflatables and I kept thinking they looked like so much of a hassle. But over the years, I’ve realized kids love them no matter what type of event they’re present at.

I have a friend whom I went to high school with that offers his inflatable bouncers to our local events for the kids. He even comes to set it up for the event and the kids get to play in it for hours and hours at a time, while parents can shop and enjoy each other’s company.

So what if you want to rent one? First thing you’ll want to keep in mind is that some bouncers have a cover while others are entirely open. So if it’s going to be a hot day, you might want to consider the one with the cover. Also, you’ll want to make sure that the bouncer you decide to rent comes with an inflatable ramp so the kids are able to get in and out of it on their own.

You’ll also want to make sure you book the bounce house in advance and be sure to see if there is a price difference for renting one on a weekend verses a weekday. And, keep in mind how many kids will be attending your birthday party. Even if you don’t think half of them will show up, it’s better to rent a bigger bouncer than have all of the kids show up and only have one that can accommodate half of them. And expect to spend anywhere from $75 to $200 on a bouncer depending on the company.

Keep in mind things like medical issues with the kids that might cause problems when jumping and let the parents know to leave things such as jewelry at home (which can poke the bounce house or another child). Also, make sure you have plenty of adult supervision to keep an eye on the kids jumping around. After all, kids will be kids and accidents are bound to happen.
