Little Tikes Bounce House Roundup [July 2018]

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

A Little Tikes bounce house is a decent option for young families looking for an inflatable bouncer.  While the warranties aren't the best, the products themselves are generally well-made and can stand the test of time.  I certainly think having a Little Tikes bounce house is better than not having one at all!  In this article I'll summarize the different models in the Little Tikes line to help make your buying decision easier.

First, a summary:

Cloud 9 Mighty Bounce House - Mini Crayon - Inflatable Kids Jumper with Blower Cloud 9 Mighty Bounce House - Mini Crayon - Inflatable Kids Jumper with Blower 12'3" x 9'3" x 7'6" Most

Many of the models will fit indoors, and I've seen kids up to nine years old using them like that with no problem, although kids that old do pretty much max it out and they can't really go all out like they could with a larger model.  But still, it'll work for some short-term entertainment.  And for smaller kids it'll keep them entertained for as long as you want to keep it powered on.

The other thing I need to mention is that if you do use it indoors you have to make sure to anchor it properly.  Strictly speaking it's safer that way, but realistically a bigger issue is making sure the air supply tube remains straight while it's running.  If you don't want to have to move it back into place every five or ten minutes, do yourself a favor and anchor it properly.

We've only owned two of the units I'm rounding up here, but once you get the feel for a Little Tikes bounce house you tend to know what to expect.  The Jump n' Slide bouncer was our first, but it didn't end up lasting us very long.  We ended up switching brands but have also had the Jump n' Slide with the roof.  Long story short, get the one without it.

Anyway, here's my Little Tikes inflatable bouncer roundup.

A List of Little Tikes Bounce Houses...

Littke Tikes Jump 'n Slide Bouncer [B003NSBMUI]

  The Jump 'n Slide Bouncer is a very popular unit.  It features the widest distribution out of any of the inflatable bounce houses you'll find (it's sold at Target and Walmart, in addition to Amazon), and there's a reason for that.  For a first time buyer, this is a great unit to test the waters.  Just make sure to buy it before your kids are too old.

WHY IT'S #1  Flagship isn't necessarily the term I'd use here for such a basic model of bouncer, so perhaps ubiquitous is a better word.  This bouncer is available online like most others but is one of the few models you'll find in common retailers near you.  For that reason it seems to have the widest distribution based on my own personal experience.

The good  This is a solid, versatile bouncer that is well equipped to handle any family's needs.  It suits smaller kids very well, giving them a decently sized area for jumping, while at the same time being small and cozy enough to make them feel safe.  It's flexible - it has a compact size so it can be used indoors and out, and it's fast and easy to set up.

The bad  There aren't a lot of bad things to point out with this model.  If anything, you can probably say it's less entertaining than a bigger unit with other features like a slide but if you're not after those features this is a solid model.

In Conclusion...

Choosing a bounce house for your toddler can be a big challenge.  There are plenty of options out there, and it's important to do full research and all your due diligence before you move forward with a purchase.

With that said, I hope this guide has helped you make that decision.  It's just my opinion, but I'm a dad who cares about his kids more than anything and wants to see them enjoy life to the fullest!
