Do you have a jumping castle / inflateable water slide? Are they worth it? Have you had a puncture? Are they easy to set up? Would I be able to set it up and put it away myself? Anything else I should know? I am thinking about maybe getting one for my kids for christmas (age 5,3, 17 months and a newborn when he gets older).I looking at one like a happy hop one. So worth it or waste of money?

jumping castles / inflatable water slide questions

I think worth it if you have multiple kids. I got a castle for DS on his second christmas but it was a waste, it couldn't hold our weight so DS could only use it alone which made it Boring. He would have adored it with a sibling though, a friend of mine has the big water slide castle and it's just amazing, so much fun!

Yes! Bought it for DS 3rd birthday in October from Target - it's called Action Air inflatable water slide - it's unreal! I had about 6 toddlers on it at his party and my 9 and 11 year old nieces also used it , you literally plug it in and it inflates in about 2 minutes, you connect your garden hose to it and the water sprays out ! To turn it off just unplug it and it deflates in 2 mins - we've used it nearly every sunny weekend since - we have a pool but this is better for toddlers as we don't need to get in the pool! It's max weight is 135kg

Omg that looks like fantastic fun. Roughly how much was it?

My Mum bought one for our kids 2 Christmases ago and they loved it, DD even had her birthday party as a slide party. After 2 years and many many rides (by adults and kids) the seams starting popping so I got a new one for them earlier this year when they were on special and the kids are already begging to have it each weekend.

I've just bought the same one from Target, Elijah's Mum and have put it away for the kids at Christmas and I am glad you posted photos as I was wondering what it looks like all set up. We also have the jumping castle one and the kids love it, I love how quick it inflates/deflates, makes life much easier than having to pump yourself etc.

Oh yay! They will love it! Let's hope Xmas day is sunny
