We hired Paul to be our DJ at a corporate event at a local hotel. We were very pleased with his selection of music which totally went with the flow of the meeting. We had numerous things going on and his sense of knowing what to play worked for us. We don't normally have people dancing at our corporate events but the music Paul played had many kicking up their heels! I was very happy with Paul and he brought lights and sound and truly contributed to make our event a success. I will definitely call upon Paul again when we need a DJ! Thanks Paul!

Adam was so fun and easy to work with! My husband and I love Disney and wanted to incorporate that with our music and Adam had such a great mix of Disney and mainstream. My parents are bummed that he's in Illinois and not Colorado where they live so that they can use him for my sisters' weddings :) Our guests had so much fun and we thought the night was perfect! Thank you, Adam for giving us an unbelievable experience!

My daughter used Karen for our grand daughter's birthday party, and I was so impressed with Karen and her talent, that I hired her to do our competition dance team banquet. She is amazingly talented and just really a great person. She was interacting with all our dancers and their parents and all the kids were so thrilled with their face paintings! I believe she even booked a few more parties off of this one. I would highly recommend her! She is very reasonably priced and I know that you will be extremely happy with her! -Robin Lind Owner of Dance Tech Studios

I have been taking lessons with Shulamit for about 4 months now, and her teaching has helped me immensely to improve. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things music and is able to offer truly helpful insight that is rare among piano teachers. She is willing to help push me when I wish to strive for harder pieces, but also understands and helps me when I need more practice. I would highly recommend Shulamit to anyone wishing to take piano lessons.

Kristoff was captivating. We had Kristoff for our church fundraiser and he completely had over 200 people (sitting in a tight church basement) at the edge of there seats with every trick he performed. He has a nice way of bringing any and everyone into his performances. His delivery is inviting and his magic is sensational. I highly recommend him for any event that needs or is looking for a quality show. Great entertainment for a reasonable price, can't wait to get him back. You wont be disappointed .

Mitchel was so much fun to work with. He has to be the most easy going, easy to talk to personality I have ever met. He delivered wonderfully, from all of the music we requested he play, to the very awkward way he stopped everyone from clinking glasses, as discussed. He did an awesome job at keeping upbeat, fun music going where I feel like a lot of wedding DJs fail miserably, and he chose music from different generas and periods. The lighting was pretty sweet too. Thanks for creating an awesome atmosphere for my wedding Mitchel!

Joey Olson played music and DJ'd for my wedding. My wife and I are both musically challenged to say the least, so it was a huge blessing knowing that Joey was well experienced in all facets of the industry to take the project on himself. He did great. The music and sound quality could not have gone any better. I would definitely hire Joey for all of your sound and music needs.

The balloon artists and face painter were the best addition to our Annual Company Picnic. It was fun to listen to the people raving about the both the face painter and balloon art that was created. They were quick and entertaining and captivating to see them interact with their audience. We would not think twice about having the staff back every year at this annual event. A Touch of Magic is the best in the business for this type of entertainment. They took very good care of us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for your event!

Tim was AMAZING! It was a professional reception (medical staff w/ spouse and legislators). All the guests enjoyed the music, many asking how we found him and how they could book him for a future event. I'd hire Tim again in a heartbeat!

David did his kids show for my daughters 6th birthday. We had at least 15 kids ages, four to ten (even a few younger, and he held their interest too). He was on time to the venue, and started the show at the time agreed upon. He immediately had the children quiet and focused on him, then he had them all laughing at his jokes. For the age group at the party he held their attention so good. No one grew bored, or antsy. He made the birthday girl feel extra special, while including everyone else too. Everyone including the adults were laughing and engaged. The magic show was the best part of the party, and the only time I could sit and breathe because all of the focus was one him. My daughters school and daycare friends talked about the show for days. David is a total professional and great at what he does. I would definitely book him again, and recommend him to anyone looking to entertain from kids to adults.

My husband and I have a HUGE Christmas party every year with up to 100 people in attendance. We hire Erin every year to come and do caricatures for our guest and she does amazing work and is wonderful to work with. It has truly become a tradition and our guests look forward to seeing her and getting their yearly caricature as a keepsake of our party. Erin’s work well exceeds other artists caricatures.

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.
