Marcella did a great job for my 4 and 5 year olds combined birthday party. We had about 8 kids ranging from 2-5 years old. Her designs on the kids were awesome ranging from superhero to unicorns. My nephew got a spiderman face and he was so proud of it for the rest of the party and asked my sister if he could wear it to church. After face painting, she also made twisted balloons for all the kids. We had a couple kids show up at the end of time and Marcella graciously stayed a few more minutes for a small fee to twisted them ballons. My husband and another parent felt Marcella could be a little warmer and more engaging towards the kids. But overall they both were also pleased with her talent. I hope a couple of my family/friends will hire her at their party so we can enjoy her services again.

Tim was very professional and performed a fantastic show! We hired Tim for our company holiday party...and had never thought of using that type of entertainment before. We are sure glad that we did. There were many comments after his show on how much everybody had enjoyed themselves. We will definitely use him again for our company functions and would refer him to others. Thank you so much Tim!

I really enjoy music lessons with Jacob, I've had several teachers and he is by far the easiest to work with and to learn from. He's a great guitar player and keeps the lessons fun, he also does a good job at making sure that what I'm practicing has something to do with what I'm interested in. I've had teachers in the past that did not make guitar interesting, Jacob is great, well worth the money! I'm much better than I was before I started with him.

Charlotte absolutely shined at our Christmas party. She is such an accomplished pianist who was focused and kept playing amidst the chaos of a child filled home. Charlotte happily took many, many request from the children. And the hightlight was a special rendition of Fairytale of New York. She learned this song for us so that I could surprise my husband with his favorite Christmas song. The whole party enjoyed singing along to all the songs.

Melanie has been invaluable as a teacher of piano and voice to both of my kids for the past couple years. What I appreciate most about her is the sense of fun she brings to every lesson. It's so important I think to convey that joy because music can provide such a place of peace and happiness in one's life in my opinion. I also really appreciate the live performance experience she provides for each student during the end of year concert. Not only are the students able to work with professional musicians but they also can test their wings when it comes to live performing. I look forward to many more years where my kids continue to explore music with Melanie Vail!

Ed Mays Groove Kitchen Band was the best. Our guests loved the music... and were up dancing to every song. Ed didn't know the song that I asked them to play for our first dance, but they looked it up... and yes... they played it for us... and yes... it was beautiful. I would recommend this band if you want your guests to have a good time. This was a party for our 50th Anniversary .... and Ed helped to make it very special. Thank you Ed and your band.

ScratchMaster Joe played at a fundraising auction event for my school. We had marketing, design and visual creatives in attendance and all were dancing, smiling and talking as soon as the music began. He curated a great set for us, created a vibe that kept people active and entertained yet did not stifle or overpower conversation at the same time. I would hire him for any event I put on in the future.

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.
