We had a reunion party for some friends yesterday. One of the smartest things we did was rent a bouncer. (If you’re in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota…I highly recommend Magic Bounce for your rental.) We made a big deal about it for our girls. We were bringing the Disney princess castle to our house! It was magical watching them watch it inflate in the backyard. It only took about 5 minutes (but speeded up here for your viewing pleasure).
The bouncer was the single most important party investment we made. It gave the kids hours of fun and meanwhile the adults had time to enjoy conversations without thousands of interruptions. It also gave the adults times to have great fun IN the bouncer. It was big enough for the “big kids”. One person said it clearly: “I feel like a kid!”.
Having rented the bouncer, the only problem I see now is that after our kids have played in one for hours at home we’ve kind of spoiled them. They’ll never be able to go to a carnival and think it’s a big deal to spend 5 minutes in one for a dollar.
I thought bouncing was way more fun than on a trampoline. Everything is soft and safe. You can’t accidentally hit the edge and crack open your skull or get a finger stuck in a spring…and trampolines don’t have slides or basketball hoops! At first glance I was kind of confused by that one…a basketball hoop and net inside the princess castle? I guess Cinderella had to do something to pass the time while waiting for her prince to come.
It’s really easy for guests to find your home when there’s an 18′ princess castle in the yard. You can get all kinds of themes to match your party. Enjoy.
