Residential/Commercial: A commercial is generally bigger and can accomodate more and bigger people, but is more expensive than a residential bounce house. A residential bounce house is smaller and is suited more for younger kids. The child should be older than 3 and less than 100 pounds.

Indoor/Outdoor Use: Depending on the size of your yard, you may also want to consider a compact bounce house that will be smaller, yet will fit inside your house.

Themes/Styles: Do you want a certain theme added to your bounce house? Changeable theme options are available for your child's tastes and opinions. If he/she is a fan of basketball or of Disney princesses then you can purchase a bounce house that has a ball pit or a Disney themed bounce house.

Safety: Safety is indeed the most important aspect of a bounce house. A bounce house is usually injury-free because of its soft surface, but there is a slight chance of your child getting hurt. A bounce house, however, is the perfect substitute for some exercise as your kids will bounce away without getting hurt as opposed to other forms of exercise that may severely harm your child.

Size: Bigger is better for bounce houses. The bigger a bounce house is, the more space your kids have to bounce and have fun. At, you can look at our bounce houses' length, height, and weight to determine how big of a bounce house you have. You should also find the measures of the insides of your house if you want an indoor bounce house.

This creates a very safe and enjoyable environment for the active youngsters. (also see Bounce House Safety Guide)
