Shaun DJ at our wedding and did the most amazing job. Everyone in my family was impressed and he made the wedding perfect! I had never used Thumbtack to find a service before, but now I will only use Four Star Entertainment for any entertainment needs going forward. My husband and I could not have been more pleased with his work ethic, professionalism, and just how fun it was to include him in such an important day in our lives. Thank you!

Working with Quentin on setting up the appointment was a breeze since he was very responsive to text messages. He arrived at the birthday party on time and patiently spent time with kids of mixed age. He brought a book to let the kids choose the art and did a great job with the face paintings. He even stayed extra time to work on some balloon art with the kids and carefully listened to each of them and made them what they wanted. I highly recommend him and will do business with him in future

Eric was great. We hired him for our Employee Christmas Luncheon to walk around to each table or group and provide entertainment. He came a little before the event to set up and was well prepared. He was very funny and everyone enjoyed his magic.

I met Staci at a art show and she had painted my face for me and she did a fantastic job I told her to surprise me with something and she did a fish on me and I must say it was pretty cool and as a artist she is pretty good at her artwork. She brings such happiness to any environment and she's great with kids. I've even been recommending people to her who have been looking for entertainment for their kids. But if your looking for someone who does amazing work Staci is the right one for the job. You won't be disappointed.

Crescendo Trio played at our wedding ceremony this summer at the Weston Red Barn Farm as well as the cocktail hour that was located in the barn. They did a fantastic job and it was the perfect touch to complete our wedding day and reception. Karla was very helpful and patient in working with my husband and I on the details of what music to be played, requested songs, etc. I would highly recommend Crescendo Trio to anyone wanting live music at their event.

Jukeboxx Media is actually a service that will help put together a custom live band, but in our case we found a band that we really liked so they helped us book and work with the entire band. My husband and I loved that Jukeboxx helped us pick a band, pick every song, and work so closely with Jukeboxx and the band. We went to several live shows before choosing the band that was right for us. Chris and Aaron were extremely flexible (especially considering how many times we changed our minds) and also great to work with. We split the entertainment between two hours of DJ and three hours of a live band. After the wedding, everyone told us how great the band did, and how much they loved the DJ. They also set up an incredible lighting scheme that really made our reception look great.

Our original date was rained out and Michelle was very understanding and eager to work with us to reschedule. I found her to be very personable and professional from the first introduction on Thumbtack, through the negotiations, the rescheduling and on the day of. She was great at making our guests feel welcome and she and the band performed a wide variety of music! We had a LOT of fun. I HIGHLY recommend Michelle Hawkins for your event!

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.
