2 Tips For Choosing The Most Appropriate Inflatable For Your Child’s Birthday Party

As a parent, there is no doubt that a large inflatable jumping house or castle has an important and popular role at birthday parties, but their safe and fun use is also an immense responsibility. Whether your child is turning 2 or 10, a birthday party is often more memorable and enjoyable when a bouncy house or castle is present. Fortunately, there are three easy tips that can make your child’s birthday party the best party for everyone involved.

Verify Whose Responsibility Delivery, Setup and Pickup Is

It is important to consider the weight and size of any inflatable. Unless you have extensive experience or knowledge of larger inflatables, it is usually a better idea to choose a company that will take responsibility for each aspect of getting it to your home or party location, setting it up and then removing it from your home at the agreed upon time.

Otherwise, you will have a significant amount of risk, including the very real possibilities of:

  • Injury to one or more of your guests

  • Damage to the inflatable

  • Damage to your home or property

Even if you get a lower quote for doing some of the work, inflatables should not be a do-it-yourself project for amateurs. It is also a good idea to allow a few extra minutes at the time of delivery so that you can become familiar with the specific details of your temporary inflatable unit.

Consider The Size Of Your Youngest And Oldest Guests

It is easy to assume that if the birthday party is for a group of eight year old children, that you should choose an inflatable for that age group. However, that could easily be a mistake since the unit will usually be rated for a maximum number of users at any given time, as opposed to individual guests.

If you have an enthusiastic cousin or one of your guests is big for their age, you should consider them all before choosing a unit. In addition, always be sure that you are able to keep track of the number and approximate weight of everyone using the inflatable, so that you can be sure that everyone is as safe as possible.

In conclusion, renting an inflatable allows you with the opportunity to make your child’s birthday party a fun and memorable experience for everyone. By making the most appropriate choice of rental units and planning ahead, you will make it memorable and safe.
