What Age is Good for Bounce Houses
The short answer is that bounce houses are appropriate for ages 6 to 12 for safe and supervised
playtime. No child under the age of 6 should be allowed to play in a bounce house unsupervised. They don’t
have the coordination or motor skills to remain upright or right themselves when they fall.
Bounce houses transfer motion easily and that can knock small children off their feet.
There are some important factors to consider for anyone thinking of purchasing a consumer
bounce house or renting an inflatable for a child’s party. The amusements aren’t something
that can be set up and left alone while children play. A responsible adult will need to be in
attendance to supervise anytime a child is using the inflatable. The potential for an injury
Equally important is the location where the entertainment will be located. The place where the
bounce house sets will need to be away from utility lines, fences and structures to prevent
injuries to children. To ensure the integrity of the bounce house is maintained, the location
must be free of rocks, sticks, sprinkler heads, fences, structures, and overhanging branches.
Never use a bounce house outdoors in storms or winds strong enough to blow dust and dirt
A bounce house provides affordable entertainment for children ages 6 to 12 that won’t break
the bank. They’re a great way for youngsters to play and get beneficial exercise for strong
bones and muscles.
