Picking out the right Inflatable can be an important decision for any buyer. Whether you’re wanting a bounce house, moonwalk, jumper, or a bouncy castle, there are thousands of varieties and sizes in the market today at competing costs.  At Bounce Time Inflatables we’d like to answer the major questions you have in-order to find the right bounce house. The first step to buying anything is knowing the purpose of your purchase. Bounce Time recommends buying Inflatables based on how much use you want out of your unit, whether its buying an Inflatable for a one time birthday party or  for a rental business. There are two types of Inflatables, commercial & residential.
