Greetings to all the vigilant parents out there! As an advocate of fun and a purveyor of hire services, I'm thrilled to share some essential tips on bouncy castle safety. Here at Anything for Hire, we understand the joy these inflatable wonders bring to any child's day out in Carmarthenshire, but we also prioritize safety above all.

Choosing a Bouncy Castle

When planning your little one's party, the quality of the bouncy castle should be paramount. We recommend picking reputable suppliers who maintain high standards of hygiene and safety. At Anything for Hire, we ensure our partners provide top-notch equipment that meets all the British Standards (BS EN 14960).

Location and Setup

The placement of the bouncy castle is crucial. Always opt for a level grassy area, away from fences, branches, or any sharp objects. If you must set up on a hard surface, ask the supplier for safety mats to be placed around the bouncy castle.

Anchoring the Castle

Securing the inflatable is a step that cannot be overlooked. Check with the supplier if they'll be handling the anchoring process. If not, make sure to use sturdy pegs or weights to prevent any unwanted movement.

Supervision and Rules

Constant supervision by a responsible adult is non-negotiable. It's imperative to establish rules beforehand to prevent rowdy behavior, which includes no flips, no climbing the walls, and a limit on the number of children allowed at one time.

Age-Appropriate Use

Bouncy castles aren't one-size-fits-all. It's advisable to group children by age or size to minimize the risk of injury.

In Case of Emergency

Lastly, always have a plan for emergencies. Whether it's deflation or a sudden storm, knowing how to quickly and safely evacuate the children is essential.

  1. Make sure the supplier provides an emergency contact number.
  2. Have a first aid kit nearby.
  3. Teach children the exit routes upon their entry to the bouncy castle.
