I am sort of embarrassed to admit this (perhaps I am an over-indulgent parent?) – but for my daughter’s 4th birthday I BOUGHT HER A BOUNCY HOUSE. Nope, didn’t rent it. Purchased it. To own forever and ever. That’s her in our driveway playing queen of her very own bouncy castle. I figured that for the cost of three rentals we could own one, and whip it out whenever we want (which we did at her “Princesses in Space” birthday party). The day it arrived, I plugged it in, inflated it, and my daughter bounced in it for (I kid you not) 45 straight minutes, then promptly fell asleep. To me, it was worth every penny. Curious about what something like this costs and how it works?
This Blast Zone Princess Dreamland Inflatable Bounce Castle ran $329.99 (and free prime shipping) from Amazon. It comes with a blower, which you just tie to the castle, plug in, and flip the on switch. It’s 8.5’X11’X8′ (so smaller than your rental variety), and can fit four kids at a time. When you’re done bouncing, it deflates in a few minutes and folds up to store in an included bag. Find it here: Blast Zone Princess Dreamland Inflatable Bounce Castle by Blast Zone
