How We Write Our Reviews

Five years later, I've earned commissions on over $500,000 worth of sales on Amazon, but the most valuable part is the insight and data I've gained along the way.

Five Little Tikes Bounce Houses Your Kids Will Love [August 2021]

  One of the most common brands that I am asked about when it comes to inflatable bouncers is Little Tikes.  Most parents see them as a toddler-friendly brand geared mostly toward younger kids, and they assume that their bounce house products aren’t as durable or reliable, especially as kids get older.

The great news is that Little Tikes has a very broad range of products in the inflatable category and many of them are capable of handling your kids as they grow for many years to come.

A water slide bounce house is one of the best sources of warm-weather entertainment your family will ever own.  They're affordable, convenient, and offer literally endless fun for your kids from young to old. 

But first, a quick note:  There are a lot of bounce houses on the market, with many online offerings coming out in the last year or two.  In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Blast Zone or Bounceland , and for smaller kids Little Tikes may have a lot to offer.

Little Tikes Trampoline Comparison [December 2020]

New parents and parents with younger children are constantly asking me about trampolines for their kids.  Now, I usually tell parents to go with a bounce house or bouncy slide rather than a trampoline, but these Little Tikes trampolines are so popular that I decided to look into them.

Both models offer the quality that you’ve probably come to expect with the Little Tikes brand.  Each model is designed to be used by only one kid at a time and, unlike with a bounce house, this is a strict limit with a trampoline.
