An inflatable bouncer is a great way to for kids to entertain themselves and get exercise either at a local pizza parlor or in their own backyard. Permanent installations can be found at numerous parks, carnivals, fairs, restaurants, and businesses, but can also be rented for temporary, personal parties or special events. Even though this energetic, over-sized toy has all soft parts, always supervise your bouncing children to make sure no one gets accidentally injured.
Structurally, an inflatable bouncer starts out as a rolled up mass of PVC vinyl. A motorized pump plugs into an ordinary, outdoor electrical outlet and begins filling the bouncer with compressed air. Soon, it is completely upright and inflated on a flat surface, like a lawn. The pump will keep it erect with enough pressure that children can jump on the interior platform and get launched into the air. Tethers and stakes keep the inflatable bouncer in place. Mesh sides allow air circulation without letting tots bounce out of the enclosure.
There are also many imaginative themes for an inflatable bouncer. One can resemble a medieval castle, carousel, spaceship, gingerbread house, tropical island, or firehouse. Some are even filled with lightweight plastic balls. Another great accessory is a roof that protects against rain and shields the sun. Their bright, primary colors, and detailed painting complete the thematic package, transporting children to a world of their imagination.
