Are Jumping Jax The Same Thing As Bounce Houses?

We have noticed a trend recently, where folks are searching for either “jumping jax” or “jumping jacks” when searching for inflatable bounce houses.  We were curious, so we checked online dictionaries and found that “jumping jacks” can refer to many different things…

  • jumping jacks can be the physical exercise where you move your hands and feet at the same time, in what some call a “star pattern”
  • a jumping jack can be the toy figure with jointed limbs that dances when you pull the attached string
  • and, of course, jumping jacks can be extremely entertaining inflatable products for kids of all ages!!

Interestingly, Wikipedia doesn’t have an article about “jumping jax” – which means there must be no such thing!!  Just kidding…  but if you’re looking for a moon jump, bouncy house, or other inflatable rentals in the Chicago area, look no further!  No matter what you call it, we have LOTS of them to choose from!  Just click on any of the links near the top of the page, and when you’ve found some that look like fun, contact us for pricing and availability.  For safe, clean jumping jacks (or are they jumping jax?!), contact us today!

Bounce House Safety: Avoiding Injuries

There have been several news stories recently about injuries involving bounce houses – some even refer to it as a “public health emergency”. The statistics show a significant increase in just the past few years – so what could possibly be the cause?

You may have noticed that you can now purchase bounce houses, slides, obstacles, and other interactive inflatables from your local Toys R Us, Walmart, Sam’s Club, or Costco. These non-commercial units have really become available in just the past 3 years, but they are NOT made to withstand commercial use or high-volume events.

There are numerous critical differences. Commercial units come with:

  • a full 1-horsepower blower
  • 18 oz Fire Retardant Vinyl
  • triple stitch and reinforced corners
  • reinforced netting
  • safety stairs
  • back flow value for slow deflation in case of power failure
  • netting over entrance door
  • 18″ stakes (4 of them) to anchor the unit

These moon bounces are designed for commercial use, which means 6-8 children at a time. Compare that with the units available at discount stores:

  • ¼ horsepower blower
  • nylon material
  • single stitching
  • 4″ stakes to secure the unit
  • designed for home use, 2-3 children at a time

Parents might be tempted to use bouncy houses as baby sitters. It’s very important to have an adult supervisor monitor the inflatable at all times, since ANY interactive inflatable product can be dangerous if unsupervised, and can easily result in injury.

Chicago Bounce House RentalAt A Moon Jump 4U and AMJ Spectacular Events, our FIRST priority is always safety. We ALWAYS anchor the bounce house to the ground. We ONLY rent commercial-grade inflatables. When we deliver any of our products, we DISCUSS with the renter exactly how to use the product.. And finally, we provide protocols for any emergencies that may arise.

Here are the safety requirements which we review with each renter – we even have the renter sign a document acknowledging an understanding of the rules.

  • Never use in high winds and during a thunderstorm
  • When plugging in blower, make sure that the electricity is grounded
  • Adult supervisor must be present the entire time
  • Never overload the product w/children: 6-8 children maximum
  • Children of like sizes need to be in the product at the same time.
  • No flipping
  • No rough playing
  • No shoes, glasses, food/gum or drink
