Santa went a little crazy during his visit to our house this year. He filled our entire living room with a bouncy house! Now, as elaborate as this may seem, the bouncer was less than $200 on sale and provides endless hours of children not running through the house like wild maniacs, so all in all … good deal.
It has been a terrific outlet for the boys to get their wiggles out during the rainy season here in Seattle. The blower is a little noisy, but it’s not any more annoying than two kids constantly passing through the kitchen while we’re trying to cook or do dishes. And since eradicating that headache was Santa’s master plan, I’d say he achieved his goal!
I’m impressed with the quality of the fabric — it feels like it will hold up for a long time. We have good friends who used this same model several times a month with multiple kids, and it lasted them about three years.
It is just like the “real” bouncy houses you can rent, just much smaller. (Although, as I mentioned, it does take up our entire living room.) Santa also delivered a pack of 200 balls for the house, which the blonde child loves, but the brunette detests (he says they get in the way of his jumping), so we have to rotate their use to make everyone happy. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a way to burn through some rainy-day energy!
