We just bought our first home last summer, and since we FINALLY have our own yard, we have been searching high and low to find things to occupy our kids during warmer months. Of course, a bounce house immediately came to mind! Come on... What child doesn't get completely excited when they see these at carnivals or parties?!
After doing a bit of research, I decided that Blast Zone was the way to go because of all of the glowing reviews of their product line. We wanted something user-friendly, easy to set up/take down, and something durable enough to get several years of use. (Our youngest kids are 3.5 and 2.5, so we viewed this purchase as an investment!) The inflatable products from Blast Zone seemed to cover these prerequisites better than their competitors.
We don't have a super-huge yard, so we decided that the Air Walker Bounce Castle would be a good starter product for us. Not only is it a great value, it would allow us to experience the brand's quality firsthand before purchasing one of their larger products, like the many amazing looking water parks.
The product shipped right away and only took a couple of days to get here. The first thing I noticed while the product was still boxed is that it's rather heavy! I was able to move it with no problems, though, and this reassured me that the materials used were by no means flimsy.
The whole set-up process was ridiculously simple, and we had it up in mere minutes. Just find a level spot in your yard, anchor it down, and attach the fan to the inflation tube. It's so simple, which I definitely appreciate!
My 2.5 year old, Xander, was incredibly fascinated by the whole set up process, and stood by supervising his Daddy the whole time. It was really cute to watch. Of course his eyes lit up when the bounce castle began to take shape.
Once you turn it on, the bounce castle is ready to enjoy in literally about 90 seconds, if not a little less! Talk about FAST! (This is a major, major plus when you have screaming kids begging to bounce!) Please note, you MUST leave the fan ON during use, since this is what allows kids to bounce.
This measures about 8'W x 8'D x 7'H, so it is a good size without being overwhelmingly huge. This is designed to hold 3 kids, up to 100lbs each. My teen and both of my preschoolers were able to use it at the same time, with room to spare. The impact zones are double and quadruple reinforced, so I didn't worry for a second that it wouldn't hold up to the craziness happening inside.
The Blast Zone Air Walker Bounce Castle is so much fun, and easy for little ones to get in and out of. The velcro closure is super secure, and the netting used to contain little jumpers is also quite durable. No worries of kids flying out and hurting themselves, since this is a well-thought and secure design.
Sophie and Xander have an absolute blast bouncing away in their bounce castle. They giggle and squeal with delight, and get plenty of exercise in the process. It's really cute to see their excitement and watch them dance, jump, and trot inside their bounce castle.
Of course, once the passing neighborhood kids saw our Air Walker Bounce Castle, word spread quickly. Soon, there were about 15 kids in my yard asking for a turn. This was definitely a huge hit, and would be ideal for cookouts, birthday parties, or any other occasion when you want to keep kids happy and occupied.
Taking the bounce castle down was also quick and easy. There is a quick deflate tube in the back. All you do is turn the fan off, open this tube, and it quickly starts deflating. You can also press it down or step on it to make it flatten faster. Once it's completely devoid of air, it can be folded up and stored in the carrying case or in a plastic bin.
Overall, we are basically in love with our bounce castle from Blast Zone. The quality is exceptional, it's very easy to use, and it keeps my kids and all the other kids in the area quite happy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for some summer fun!
