Jerry provided the entertainment for our Mother's 90 birthday celebration. He offered a wide variety of music, played some lovely sax selections that were appropriate for the occasion , worked with me on creating a playlist of oldies that were very pleasing to the older guests and offered karaoke for the brave few. I highly recommend Jerry for a nice addition to a special gathering.

Mrs. Boggs was very friendly and engaging. She kept the children entertained and the quality of her work was great. She was able to do face painting and balloons for everyone within the two hours she was there. We were very pleased and would recommend her for other events.

I picked Gus to DJ my hubbies 40th birthday. He was very polite and accommodating to what I was looking for music and entertainment for the party. During the party we randomly decided to change up many of the songs and the DJ changed everything over smoothly and without a problem. Couldn't have asked for better. Good quality, responsive, professional, flexible = Amazing! My friends are still talking about how great the music was. :) I would totally recommend Gus!

Krate did a house party for us. The party was awesome thanks to him--he was able to read the vibe and moods of the crowd as the energy shifted throughout he night. Diverse but sensible variety of music. My guests represented multiple nationalities and all were pleased. Krate is also pleasant in terms of personality and on point professionally. I want to have another party just to bring him back!

Bruce was very entertaining for the children at our party. He was on time, professional and even came prepared with a vacuum to clean up his part of the party mess afterwards :) We would certainly use him again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Cody! He was very easy to work with throughout the entire process. My son was turning 13 and I wanted to do something special for his party. Cody helped make sure the timing of his arrival lined up with my plans to surprise Luke. He put on a great show and the kids loved him! We are very satisfied and would recommend Cody to anyone looking for a great entertaining show for your party or 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.
    • Wet/dry slide, 20-foot: $250.
    • Combo bouncer and slide, 24x10x13-foot: $140.
