Hey guys.  My name's Zeke, and I am the Bounce House Dude.  I'm a proud husband and father to my wife and my two incredible boys, and it is because of them that I made this website.

I work in IT for my day job, and so I've always had an interest in websites and technology. I've created some websites here and there over my career and always had a great time.  I had wanted to make a website for quite a while now but never had subject that would be robust enough to justify an entire site on its own.

One day it hit me during my oldest son's 5th birthday party.  We had rented an inflatable because both of our kids absolutely love them whenever we come across one "in the wild".  We'd been to the local gyms, etc. that had bouncers and they were always our kids' favorite thing to do whenever they had them.

Renting the bouncer was one of the best decisions we had made in a mighty long time.  All the kids loved it and the parents even got involved at the end.  We got the hose out and, let's just say things got a little crazy!  When the day was done, I finally knew what my website topic was going to be.

So there you have it - BounceHouseDude.com was born.  My goal with the site was to add as much information about bounce houses as I could.  This includes my advice and stories about my family, bounce houses, bouncy slides, castles and climbing walls, as well as product comparisons, reviews and buyer's guides for products in those categories.

I've done my best to share the experiences that me and my family have had with bounce houses, trampolines and other kids' stuff. I do my best to fully research the products -- gathering data from manufacturers, sellers and actual product users -- so that you can trust the information you find here.

As always, feel free to email me at thebouncehousedude@gmail.com.  I'll do my best to respond to all inquiries in a timely manner.
