Discovering ways to keep kids amused at a party or barbecue isn't always straightforward particularly if you have a group which vary in age.
That said, I always found that a bouncy castle solved the problem! The youngsters (and adults!) would bounce and have a great time for hours no matter how old they were. It is great fun and a great workout - the down side is the hassle and the cost of having to hire one for each party.
Then I realised that you could actually purchase a bouncy castle, which would bring a great deal of fun for the youngsters on a more regular basis and which in the long run cost a whole lot less. So that is what I did as did a couple of my friends. We all purchased bouncy castles, so, we have got together and written a review of each one.
Bouncy Castle Review 1:-
Castle Inflatable Bounce House With Slide By Inflatable Impressions
I bought this for my two youngsters aged 3 and 6 years respectively and they think that this bouncy castle is the best thing ever and I have to say I agree with them!
The first thing to say about the inflatable bounce house is that it is not too big. so, if the weather turns against you you can let the kids play on it in a basement or a garage. It also means you don't have to have a massive very big yard to use it outside either!
I discovered that three youngsters can bounce happily without bumping into each other. My only issue is that the entrance opening is only held together with Velcro and if a child should fall against it they might fall out and injure themselves - I fixed this by placing a blow up mattress outside!
It comes with its own "blower" and inflates speedily, it is also very fast to dismantle again. The blower is not overly noisy and certainly keeps good air pressure inside the bouncy castle while the youngsters play.
I was pleasantly surprised that for the price this bouncy castle is very well made and seems to be very robust. One purchase I have no regrets about!

Bouncy Castle Review 2:-
Blast Zone Magic Castle Inflatable Bouncer By Blast Zone
My friend bought this for her small son and his friends, here is what she had to say about this bouncy castle.
The Blast Zone Magic Castle Inflatable bouncer is wonderful quality for a reasonably low cost. The colours are bright - exactly as you see in the promotional photographs!
It has high, net outer walls which are ideal for safety and the platform for bouncing on is lovely and flat.
It can be put up in no time at all and put away just as fast. The blower is a little aggravating - it sounds a bit like a hair-dryer, but after a while you tend not to notice it too much.
I have allowed up to 4 toddlers playing happily in this bouncy castle but for the older kids I put a limit of two at a time!
