What are some of your earliest memories from childhood? We’d guess things like how to ride a bike, first day of kindergarten, or maybe your first live sporting event. But there is another memory many Americans share: your first memories inside an inflatable moonwalk or bounce house. Whether you grew up in the 1970s, 2000s, or anywhere in between, there is a good chance a small percentage of your childhood was spent jumping inside or on top of something inflatable and bouncy. But Fun Services Midwest is here to tell you that inflatable rentals have come a long way since childhood.

In the year 2021, we have all the information and inventory you need to recreate those memories for current and future generations. And not a moment too soon.

The following post details why now is the perfect time to research the vast world of inflatable rentals, where to order your rental (hint: you’re on the right website!), and how you can bring friends, family, and coworkers together in the moonwalking process.


The Time for Inflatable Rentals is Now

We know. In terms of all that is going on in our world in the year 2021, you might be wondering why now is the right time to think about renting any sort of giant, inflatable contraption that fills up a whole backyard. To that we say: there is no better time in history to order a giant, inflatable contraption that fills up a whole backyard.

But your homefront is just one idea! Inflatable rentals are appropriate for multiple spring settings. Think about school graduations, barbecues at the park, school carnivals, field days, company meetings, team-building activities, summer camps and more.

Again, those childhood memories stuck with you for so long because inflatable rentals are so visually appealing and larger than life that you can’t forget them! They capture eyeballs the second anyone rolls on scene. AND, anyone who experiences an inflatable activity, no matter what age, automatically recalls the simplicity and joy of youth—to lose yourself in the moment, and engage in whatever wild activity is at hand. That is why our list of examples includes kids, yes, but also teens, adults, and working professionals.


Where to Even Begin?

While reading the first half of this post, you might have in mind the traditional, square moonwalk where you take your shoes off at the entrance beforehand and climb on in. But there are so many different kinds these days, you’d do good to peruse a wide variety of inflatable rentals!

Depending on the event you’re hosting or planning, consider which type of inflatable rental you’d want. A team-building activity? Consider an inflatable obstacle course—the perfect avenue for a company-wide relay. A birthday party? (For any age). Consider who you’re celebrating and what kind of inflatable you think they would like! What about the upcoming spring and summer weather? When the local pool gets too overcrowded, an inflatable rental plus a hose is the spot-on remedy for a private summer party at your home.

But that’s just the beginning. What are some other ideas for group get-togethers this spring season? Here are a few examples of events we have catered to in the past:

  • Company Picnics
  • Church Festivals
  • School Carnivals
  • Family Reunions
  • Grand Openings

For a country that has spent a good amount of time indoors in the last year or so, it’s time to get a little fresh air. But instead of worrying about giant public settings or events, an inflatable rental means a centerpiece for your isolated-yet-memorable gathering.


Spring into Community

And on that note, we give you full permission to not just recall those childhood bounce house memories, but to dig them up and relive the simple joy you once knew.

Create new memories for you and the ones you love, using similarly joyous pieces of equipment that have taken on a life of their own. It’s not just a four-walled moonwalk anymore, it’s an opportunity to reclaim youth and felicity. To get your business colleagues together and say “we’re jumping into this inflatable rental, just like we’re jumping into the new fiscal year.” To invite your family over and say “I don’t care about any arguments that happened last year, let’s take some aggression out over a game of Bubble Soccer.”

You’ll be surprised at the difference one inflatable makes at your gathering, but we won’t be. We have heard too many testimonials and seen too many smiles to not buy into one singular fact: that bouncy is better. And that our world is ready for more community alongside those we love.
