We had discussed the possibility of just buying our own bounce house to save money in the long run. Then when I sat down to start seriously researching them yesterday, I came across the Big Ol Bouncer on sale at Toys R Us! It's a larger bounce house with a bounce floor of 12x12, holding 6 kids (100 pounds or less) for a total weight limit of 600 pounds. Dadda monkey was let down when I read the part about each individual weighing under 100 pounds. I guess he thought he was going to be able to bounce with the kids. I looked at several 8x8 and 10x10 bounce houses that ranged from $400 to to almost $1000 before I found this one on sale. I decided not to hesitate on this deal and pulled the plug. I just had to share what I think is a great deal so I hope it helps someone out there.
Obviously I haven't tried it yet, When it does arrive it will probably sit unopened until Monkey Girl's birthday in April. However, I think if you're in the market for a bounce house, there aren't many deals that come along and can beat this. I figured we were going to spend about $100 to rent one for the day and with two kids birthdays each year, this was an easy decision for me. It'll pay for itself by the end of next year. Plus we can use it for other special occasions such as the 4th of July. Who knows, if it's warm enough, it may make an appearance for Thanksgiving!
