I'll never forget the first time our neighbors set up their inflatable water slide in their front yard. All of the kids from around the neighborhood rushed over and had a blast. It was one of the first times I realized that at-home inflatables (like inflatable water slides, bounce houses, etc.) were actually affordable and managable. And let me tell you — my wife and kids are glad we realized it when we did!
Inflatable water slides are loads of fun, and finding the best inflatable water slide is important. You want to find one that'll stand up and be durable over time so that you can enjoy it and really get every penny out of it. And finding the best one will maximize the joy your family and children get out of it.
The best inflatable water slides are:
The Little Tikes Jump ‘n Slide Bouncer is a basic bouncer offered at a decent price point. It comes in two sizes (regular and junior) and both sizes are compact enough to be practical for indoor or outdoor use. The main feature of this model truly lies in its simplicity but despite being relatively bare-bones it will undoubtedly provide years of fun for you and your kids. You can usually find this unit at a local Wal-Mart or Toys 'r Us, and you can always get it on amazon as well.
The Blast Zone Magic Castle is a supremely solid and durable option if you’re looking for a basic bouncer that will last you a lifetime. With many competitors in this category of bounce house, this unit stands out for not only the craftsmanship but also the quality of materials used.
The question of the best bounce house to buy is pretty simple when you break the problem down and answer a few key questions. First, how old are your kids? Second, how many kids will typically be using the bounce house? Third, what extra features do you want? Finally, what is your budget?
By answering those questions you can focus in on a bounce house that'll be a perfect fit for your family.
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.
