Verified review

Had a party for my little girl and needed "Elsa" for the surprise. Jen's Elsa performance and the way she navigated all of the little kids that attended was flawless! Somehow Jen was able to make my princess the star of her party amid the frenzy of children relentlessly trying to gain "Elsa's" attention. In short it was awesome to watch. If you need entertainment for child's birthday or just a party, Start with including Jen and Bay Area Birthdays in your plans. The looks on the kids faces are worth it.

DJ Twin Spin (Young) was terrific! He knew exactly what we wanted and played the right type of music for our guests at our wedding. My fiancé, well I should now say Husband, is not much of a dancer but Young was even able to get him dancing pretty much all night. My parents and grand parents were so surprised that he was able to play songs they requested from their generation and they absolutely loved him! He was very helpful in assisting us with planning our reception and even though we were running a little behind schedule due to some guests arriving late to the wedding ceremony, he was able to get us caught up and back on track. We interviewed 2 other DJs before we hired Young and although his price was a little more than we had budgeted for, in the end it was so worth it and we would most definitely hire him again. He even stayed an extra 45 minutes longer because my party animal friends didn't want to end the party! Young is definitely a professional and you can really tell he knows what he's doing.

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

Andy came in, presented himself nicely and was easy to get to know. He quickly assessed his needs and where he would hold his show in our home. Within minutes he was loading in, shared his set list and how we would be entertained for our daughters birthday party with his magic and illusions. After prompt set up he was ready to go. Our age group was broad and Andy had no problem catching and keeping the crowd amused and amazed for the hour. I would definitely recommend Andy Amyx for any magic entertainment.

Everyone really enjoyed the face painting and detailed designs. The metallic/chrome balloons were also a hit. My son fell in love with Elmo and didn't leave his side. I was glad to have all 3 services from one entertainer. I will definitely use her services again and highly recommend for affordable and good quality work.

This is the first time we've had the budget for entertainment, and it was a FANTASTIC idea to have chosen Azure! Jessica was just awesome! The music selection was expansive & she was very accommodating to the tenants' requests. Will definitely hire them again (assuming we have the budget) when we have our next social event!

I hired Kaella for my daughters 5 th birthday mermaid party. She came dressed as a beautiful blue mermaid and was so sweet and professional with everyone she encountered. I really appreciated that she utilized her time well and even blew bubbles and played games when there was time between face painting and balloon making. (Which are the only two things I was expecting/paying for) also she was VERY patient with the kids. There were several special needs children that needed extra attention and then of course the dozens of popped balloons by all the children, and still Kaella was sweet and accommodating. Even teaching the kids how to not pop the balloons by making up silly stories about cloud Ballon puppies. All the kids were happy and entertained. And for me I felt a lot of party entertainment needed relief. I was actually able to sit back and have some pizza and enjoy watching the happiness on my daughters face. Good job kaella. I would recommend for any kids party.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a bounce house?

Bounce houses, inflatable castles, moon bounces, inflatable slides and jumpy castles are all large-scale inflatable houses made for interactive entertainment. Commonly intended for children, bounces houses are made of PVC or other durable materials such as nylon or vinyl that when look like a house or castle when inflated. Rental companies deliver bounce houses to birthday parties, festivals, fairs and other events. The companies have industrial-grade blowers that fill the large structures with air to make them bounceable. A common size for a bounce house might be 15 feet by 15 feet by 13 feet. Bounce houses often have a flat, inflatable bottom pad and inflatable walls so that kids can jump and bounce without being hurt, along with a netting door and windows so that kids can see out and adults can see in. Bounce houses are suitable for both indoor or outdoor events, depending on the venue. For large events, rental companies often have a staff member who stays with the structure to monitor safety and keep it properly inflated. There are also wet/dry bounce houses with slides that you can hook up to a hose on hot summer days. A bounce house can be a fantastic addition to a party with kids, keeping them both entertained and contained.

Are bounce houses safe?

Bounce houses can be safe if operators and parents take proper precautions. Before renting from a company, confirm they are a legitimate company and hold any licenses and insurance required by your state. Ask to see reports of bounce house safety inspections provided by third parties, to make sure the equipment is in good operating condition to prevent injuries. If the rental company does not provide a staff member to oversee the bounce house for the duration of the rental, make sure you are properly trained on how to oversee the equipment. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these guidelines for parents to help keep their kids safe when using a bounce house:  

  • Follow guidelines for safe installation including anchoring. Position away from fences, greenhouses, branches, etc., which would be dangerous should a child fall onto them.
  • Consider limiting use to children 6 years of age and older.
  • Have kids take off footwear, eyeglasses and jewelry before playing.
  • Take sharp objects (pens, keys) that could cause puncture injuries out of their pockets and hands before playing.
  • Don’t let kids of significantly different sizes into the bounce house at the same time. Smaller kids can get hurt by colliding with or falling under an older child.
  • Heed the height and weight regulations of the inflatable.
  • Food, drink, bottles, glasses, etc., should not be taken onto the bounce house.
  • Supervision should be maintained all the time. Supervision means watching constantly, not just being in the area.
  • Do not allow children to push other children off the inflatable. If it is a flatbed, this is especially important to avoid broken arms and legs. If the bounce house is walled, don’t let kids bounce against the walls and crash into one another — this can result in collision injuries.
  • Don’t exceed the maximum number of children at one time in the bounce house.
  • Don’t let kids climb onto the outside walls. Flips and rough play should also not be allowed.

How much does bounce a house cost to rent?

Bounce houses are a fun way to keep kids entertained during birthday parties and other events. The national average cost for renting a bounce house ranges between $160 and $200. Cost will be affected by the size, design and functions of the bounce house you rent as well as the length of the rental. A three-hour rental will likely cost less than an eight-hour rental. Many rental companies offer fun additions like popcorn machines or cotton candy makers, and provide packages with discounts on multiple items. Another item that you may want to rent with your inflatable is a generator to keep the bounce house inflated. Here are some examples of average inflatable rental costs, packages, and common add-ons that many companies provide:

  • Bounce house, 10x10x13-foot: $95.
  • Bounce house, 15x15x13.5-foot: $125.
  • Wet/dry slide, 14-foot: $150.
  • Wet/dry slide, 20-foot: $250.
  • Combo bouncer and slide, 24x10x13-foot: $140.
  • Combo bouncer and wet/dry slide, $175.
  • Folding chairs: $1.50 per chair.
  • 6-foot folding table: $8.
  • Snow cone machine: $45.
  • Popcorn machine: $55.
  • Cotton candy machine: $55.
  • 2300-watt generator: $75.
  • 3000-watt generator: $100.
  • $299.95 package: includes a 20-foot dual slide ($250), table ($8), 10 chairs ($15), and a popcorn machine ($55) — $29 savings.
  • $450 package: includes a double water slide ($350) and bounce castle ($130) — $30 savings.
