The 5 Best Affordable Bounce Houses - A Dad's Opinion

Friday, April 14, 2017

Blast Zone Magic Castle Inflatable Bouncer When parents are searching for their first bouncy house, cost is often the top concern.  There's good reason for this, too.  Most parents that we know who have an inflatable bouncer actually own more than one.  A few people we know have gone all out from the start, but most parents start out with a cheaper unit to begin with.

I've reviewed the bouncers that are generally available online right now and ranked them based not only on initial upfront cost but on the durability of the units and the overall value you can expect to get out of them.

My opinions are based largely on my meticilous reviews of feedback that's available online about these bouncers, with a little bit of personal experience with several Little Tikes models to guide me in regard to that brand.

Top Pick

  My favorite pick in the affordable category is the Blast Zone Magic Castle Inflatable Bouncer.  With a current new price of only  $248.37, any family can afford it.  Even if you don't think you can, you can trust me when I say this thing will pay for itself many times over.  You may even be able to sell it after a few years of use to get most of your investment back.

Blast Zone Magic Castle Inflatable Bouncer Along with a decent price tag, the  Blast Zone Magic Castle Inflatable Bouncer boasts superior construction and high-quality materials that will give you and your kids a long life of enjoyment from this unit.

This unit is also one of the more flexible units, walking the line between ultra compact and full-size bouncer.  It's modest in size, measuring at 11' x 8'6" x 8' (L x W x H) it's large enough to handle bigger kids yet small enough to fit inside your house.  As long as you have a decent sized room (let's say 12' x 12') and standard ceiling heights (8' in most areas) you'll be able to use this inside.

Last but not least, Blast Zone offers a warranty of 1 year.  This is much longer than most other bouncers in this category and, based on my research, they honor the warranty without putting up a big fight.

Runners Up

I'm a really big fan of Blast Zone.  Like I've said, they make a quality product at a fair price with an industry-leading warranty.  It's hard to beat them overall.
