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?

  • 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.
