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.

It was such a pleasure to have Jain (Creative Faces) do the face painting at my company event. I have to say, this is the third event we had and she has been the best so far. I am hoping to book her for next years event. The kids and adults loved the work she did and she was quick to turnover kids so there was no long waiting. The quality of work was also great. The adults were interested in the Henna so that was a plus this year. I highly recommend Creative Faces.

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.

Aaron has taught two of my children guitar voice and composition since 2011. To say that he is talented is an understatement. He is not only musically skilled, he gets people. He saw what each of my kids needed to break beyond their limits and truly excel at their art. He is a strengths-based teacher who is able to bring out creativity in young people. We have appreciated the Positive force he has been k noir child's lives. It's not just about the music.

Kyle is amazing. He played live music during our wedding ceremony in 2009. He mixed original songs and covers based on our requests during different portions of the ceremony. In addition to guitar he also played ukulele. He even joined with a cellist friend of ours on one song and with just a few short run throughs he absolutely nailed it. It’s hard to think back on that day without remembering Kyle’s music. And it’s was definitely a highlight for our guests as it still comes up with friends and family when talking about the wedding. In addition to being a great musician, Kyle is also an absolute first class human being and is a pleasure to work with.

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.
