Hello!

My son’s first birthday is coming up and we’re thinking of hiring a jumping castle for his party. There’ll be kids ranging in age from 1 to 6 years old. Do they keep the kids entertained? Can you use jumping castles if it’s raining?

  • We had one for my son’s first birthday and it rained but the kids still had fun!
    It does keep them entertained for quite awhile especially if they’re playing different games on it.
    What did you end up doing?


  • I’d say wait until they are older, 6 is just about big enough to enjoy one, and even if all your guests were that age it’s still an odd thing for a baby. They do come with all sorts of hastle too, including one that burst when a glass broke and punctured it, so think carefully!


  • It is a lot of money and whilst they may have fun I’d tend to wait until the child is older. Then they can appreciate more and not become too tired too quickly.


  • It sounds fun though at the age of one I’m not sure they really need a castle maybe wait until they’re a little older and remember it more


  • No doubt the children will have fun on a jumping castle, but I’m wondering if it’s a bit much for a first birthday party. Perhaps when the birthday boy is a little older so he can enjoy it too.


  • Depends on how much fun tge birthday kid will have on it I spose, it istheir big dsy after all. From my experience, kids of all ages have ablast on jumping castles


  • yes we did, even adults used it. it was enclosed and we could use it if it was raining, nil issues


  • The little ones will likely use it if the bigger kids are. If it’s raining it might be a bit slippery so would depend on how rough the kids were.


  • For my son’s first birthday we had a ball pit, jumping castle and heaps of other toys that we hired from our local toy library for a very reasonable price. Everybody had a great time. There was always someone on it for the duration of the party. We are doing the exact same for our daughter’s 1st birthday in July.


  • We bought one from big w then you have it forever.


  • Buy one its cheaper. We bought one from BIG W.
