Limerick bouncing castles - If you are considering hiring a bouncing castle or inflatable slide for your birthday party or big event then you should check out this article. I have listed my top 10 tips of things to watch out for when hiring a bouncing castle. If you and your operator follow these tips then you should have a great day!

1. Size - Make sure you book a castle that is suitable for your garden size and the size of your guests. There is no point getting a 60ft inflatable castle if your guests are toddlers!

2. Setup - Ensure the Bouncy Castle is set up by trained experienced professionals who are familiar with their hire equipment.

3. Peace of Mind - Check that the operators have iPublic Liability insurance and are a reputable company that have been operating without incident for a number of years.

4. Anchor - Make sure the castle or slide has an anchorage system and is anchored down adequately.

5. The Weather - It has happened us all, you have a great day planned, when out of nowhere, it rains! Keep an eye on the weather forecast in the days leading up to your event. If it looks like it might be raining ask your bouncing castle hire company if they have a covered bouncing castle you could use. Avoid using tall bouncing castles or slides on very windy days.

6. Quality - Check the bouncy castle for any signs of excess wear and tear that could result in it collapsing or puncturing. A quick check of the seams is worth carrying out to see if any breakage or weakness is apparent. If you are unhappy with quality of the castle that has been delivered to you inform the hire company before you use it. Keep in mind that your children will be using the castle so if you feel there is a health and safety hazard don't take any risks.

7. Sharp Objects - inflatables and sharp objects don't mix! Check there are no sharp objects, or static objects near the Inflatable Castle.

8. Less is More - Limit the amount of children on the Bouncy Castle to prevent collisions that could cause injury.

9. Little and Large - Try not allow older children to jump with younger children

10. Supervise - Keep an eye on children to ensure they are using the castle as they are meant to. Also keep an eye on any aspiring gymnasts!

Follow these suggestions and your bouncing castle will be star of the show and everybody will have a safe and enjoyable time.
