Hiring a bouncy castle for an event is a great idea! Here’s why you should hire a bouncy castle for your party:

The kids’ perspective

Imagine the excitement of meeting with your friends for a party. You arrive in a car park and are sat patiently waiting for Mum or Dad to park the car. With the car being parked, you grab your gift, jump out and walk towards an unfamiliar hall. For some reason, you have an element of anxiety not knowing what to expect, and as a result, find yourself clinging onto your parent’s hand. You approach a large hall door and walk-in.

Suddenly you become distracted and discover a huge themed bouncy castle, where your friends are all gathered. The anxiety instantly turns to excitement. You leave the grip of your parent’s hand to find yourself jumping around with your friends. You’re having the time of your life, especially since the sole purpose of this magical attraction is to jump around and have fun with your friends!

Bouncy castles are a great way to get the children together and an even better way to burn all of that energy.

What’s in it for the parents?

Stress-free party planning!  A bouncy castle is a perfect solution for keeping the children entertained and in one space.  Planning a kids party doesn’t have to be stressful, therefore working with a suitable hire company is crucial.  It will certainly allow you to focus on other aspects of the party.  Another benefit of hiring a bouncy castle is that it will fill a dedicated area away from the food and birthday cake.  All guests must be enjoying themselves including your children’s friends parents.  Hiring a bouncy castle will keep the kids entertained for hours while the parents get to enjoy a nice catch-up and a food spread.

A bouncy castle is a perfect way to get the party started ensuring everyone has a good time.  Bouncy castles are extremely safe places for children to have fun, however, children must be supervised at all times by an adult.

Other reasons why you should hire a bouncy castle for your party include:

The ultimate objective of hiring a Bouncy Castle is for the children to have fun.  However, there are more benefits to hiring a jumping castle. Adults spend a lot of time sitting down as do children.  Burning some of that pent up energy is nothing short of a good idea.  Jumping is a fantastic way to exercise and improves balance, stamina, and spatial awareness. A jumping castle provides a safe environment to exercise and exert as much energy as possible.

Hiring from a reliable and reputable company has many benefits.  Such as knowing they’ll turn up and that safety has been taken into consideration.   This will provide a safe play environment for the children using the equipment. Each of our bouncy castles has been PIPA tested and electrical equipment pat tested.

A child on a bouncy castle may find themselves in new social situations.  This will give them lots of opportunities for social interaction. They could bump into someone by mistake? If so they may learn to laugh it off or apologise and carry on. When children are laughing and expending energy, there’s no time for anxieties or formal introductions!

It is important to remember that a bouncy castle isn’t a free-for-all. Everyone has to take care of each other to avoid spills and knocks.  There’s an important social lesson in that, too.

Another great benefit of hiring a bouncy castle for your party is seeing children use imaginative play

Seeing our magical themes and characters triggers the children’s imagination every time. Everyone knows that a bouncy castle can be what you want it to be for example:

  • A pirate lair
  • A princess tower
  • A zero-gravity spaceship, somewhere you can pretend you are flying

or even all of the above mentioned things at the same time!
