NEWS: Response to News Regarding Lead in Bounce Houses

The California Attorney General, Jerry Brown, along with the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) filed a lawsuit against numerous inflatable manufacturers on August 11, 2010 after discovering high levels of Lead (Pb) in some inflatables. Magic Jump Rentals would like to address the issue and keep its clients informed about the matter.

About The Law
The problem arises due to a California state law, Proposition 65, which states that a warning label must be present on any product that contains Lead and is over the regulated limit of what is safe. On August 14, 2008, President George Bush signed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act which lowered the limit of Lead deemed safe in consumer products. As of that day the tolerated limit was set to 600 parts per million (PPM), and on August 14, 2009 it was lowered again to 300 PPM, and as of August 14, 2011 will be lowered yet again to 100 PPM.

How This Started
From news reports and from the lawsuit that was filed, we know that the CEH discovered the Lead contents by doing an out-of-laboratory test on some inflatables that were old and outdated (about 4-6 years old). They conducted this test using a hand held gun which is known NOT TO BE 100% accurate. The CEH also conducted a test using about one inflatable per manufacturer, so they have not even tested any current or new products!

History and Any Health Issues
Inflatable Structures have been manufactured and used by children for over 50 years now. There is absolutely no known or reported health issues or problems that have been caused from children using these Bounce Houses. The CEH and Attorney General have not provided any cases or evidence of such health problems as well. Inflatables are generally used by children once to three times a year during birthdays and special events, and for a span of four to eight hours. Generally speaking, Lead is known to be a hazard in toys that are small enough where children might be placing them in their mouths or licking them, an act that would transfer the Lead content into the body of the child. In Bounce Houses, this is generally not the case. Children do not play in these inflatable structures long enough, and do not lick or bite down on the vinyl material, they are simply bouncing or sliding on the material.

About Us and Our Products
Magic Jump Rentals Inc. would like its clients and users of its products to know that it is safe for children to use our Bounce Houses. All of our products follow the latest safety rules and regulations and have the best quality vinyl material which follows all state and federal laws. Magic Jump Rentals would also like its clients and users to know that all of our products follow the industry set standards for safety in operation. Magic Jump Rentals clients and users of its products can be rest assured that they are getting a safe and quality product, that is also cleaned and disinfected, that will not harm their children or cause any health issues as long as they are following the posted safety rules which are located on all of our products.

Active Advertising

Active Advertising

Advertising is not just about attracting attention, it is more about getting potential consumers engaged with your product, service or message. There are plenty of ways to accomplish this, but at Magic Jump Rentals we feel the best way to implement active advertising is by featuring inflatable obstacle courses. It is a great source of fun and an easy way to attract and engage the attention and interest of anyone.

As a corporation, holding company outings or even sponsoring a community event is a great way to earn positive attention. At either of these events, inflatable obstacle courses may serve many purposes. Among employees, it helps advertise teamwork and a competitive spirit while for community events it associates a company’s name with the desire to give back to its customers.

With inflatable obstacle courses, you can hold friendly competition toward company sponsored prizes, challenge employees and customers alike to showcase their ability to compete and maintain a team-oriented mindset or simply allow everyone to enjoy some fun outdoors thanks to your generous hosting of an event featuring Magic Jump Rentals’ top-quality inflatable obstacle courses.

No matter how you choose to use our products, they are sure to draw attention, so advertising is almost automatic when you rent a Magic Jump Rentals product. But when you aim at engaging people’s attention, you will achieve a higher level of advertising success; and there is no easier and more enjoyable way to do so than with inflatable obstacle course games. Enjoy our products and the successive gain in popularity.

Sky Dancers

Whether you need to advertise a business or organization, promote a school or charity event, or if you simply want to attract people to your party or event, consider enlisting the assistance of Magic Jump Rentals’ advertising inflatables. Our Sky Dancers reach up to 20 feet in height and are a fun attraction to help gain the attention of passers by. By standing tall and dancing around in the air, these Sky Dancers are able to reach out to people far and wide and are sure to steal their attention away. They are the perfect markers to help people locate where you are.

Be sure to give us a call about renting out an advertising inflatable for your cause!

Choosing the Right Concession Machine

As mentioned above, Magic Jump Rentals has a number of concession machines that you may use at any event. Additionally, we would like to help you figure out which concession machine would be best for your event. With four concessions to choose from, you have a number of individual and combination options; and since we have delivered so many of these options to so many customers, you can trust our knowledge on what works best.

A primary consideration for ordering a concession machine should be your guests. Different people have different tastes, especially between the younger and older crowds.

If you are considering including a concession machine at a children’s party, keep in mind that children love sweets. With this in mind, it will be a great idea to feature a cotton candy machine. For the warmer months of the year, a snow cone machine is a great substitute for sweet treats. Combining either of these with a popcorn machine is also a popular choice. These two should be enough to satisfy their sweet tooth and provide enough substance with the popcorn to keep them energized for hours of fun.

With older crowds, including teenagers and up, sweets may still be enjoyed, but not as the main concession. Older crowds may need more food to satisfy their hunger, so a hot dog machine may be more appropriate for older crowds. With the capacity to cook up to 13 rows of three hot dogs each, it is a convenient way to feed a large crowd. Serving popcorn alongside hot dogs is also popular as a snack, while either snow cones or cotton candy will satisfy as dessert.

With these four concession machines, there are numerous combinations you can experiment with to see which satisfies your guests’ desires best. We hope that a bit of insight from our perspective will help in deciding which concession machine will best suit your needs. Whichever you choose, you and your guests will surely be satisfied!

Which inflatable should I rent?

Which inflatable should you rent? There are hundreds of different designs and styles to choose from in the inflatable rental industry, but which one should you choose that will bring the most satisfaction to your event? The inflatable rental industry is moving towards bigger products that feature numerous combinations and interactive activities. There are a couple of things to ask yourself when you want to rent a jumper for your party or event:

1.    Is there a specific theme for your party? For instance are you having a Hawaiian Luau or Sports themed party? If you do have a theme for your party then it would be best to look for an themed inflatable that will match the party, or at least that doesn't contradict your theme. You don't want to rent a sports jumper for a girl having a princess theme, or a princess style jumper for a boys party with a sporting theme. Picking the wrong inflatable can be an awkward experience for the participants and the guests at the event.
2.    How much space do you have at your location? Is your location big enough to fit a jumper, obstacle course, water slide, or a combo? Customers must take the responsibility of measuring their location before they start the rental process to make sure they are aware of their areas' dimensions. Some people fail to do this and end up renting an inflatable that is too big to setup in the area, in which case, it results in a canceled order, and, depending on the company's policy, a delivery fee.
3.    What is your budget? Is your budget lower than $100? If so then you should probably look to get a regular bounce house. Combos, slides, obstacle courses, water slides and any other interactive inflatable will usually cost around $150-$250 (depending on size and location), so if you are working with a low budget or want to reduce your expenses, then it is reasonable to say that you should expect to rent a regular bounce house.
4.    Where is your party going to be located? Having your party at a house, park, business, or beach does make a difference. Having your party at a public place like a park or a beach might require getting a permit or authorization before you can rent an inflatable. Also, these public locations might restrict people from reserving some of the bigger inflatables like an obstacle course, combo, or interactive inflatable, and usually will almost never accommodate a water slide.
5.    Which age group is this inflatable designed for? If you are having a party for toddlers you don't want to be renting a big obstacle course. Knowing what age group the inflatable is designed for is a very important aspect of renting an inflatable. Renting the wrong inflatable can lead to safety issues as well as discontent from use.

How to Measure Your Backyard for Inflatable Setup

An inflatable can be set up on grass, concrete, sand, dirt, or even a combination of those surfaces. There should be not trees in the set up location. Trees with branches hanging over the inflatable setup location should be trimmed for safety. If this is not done prior to the inflatable set up, it can create a dangerous situation. Make sure that power lines do not interfere with the inflatable setup location, and if there are power lines present make sure they are at least 10 feet away from the inflatable. 

Choosing a Setup Location for the Inflatable Bouncer
  1. Decide where you want it to be setup and facing
  2. What surface will it be on
  3. Note locations of any nearby trees, bushes, poles, power lines or any other objects that might interfere with the inflatable setup
  4. Note distance from nearby walls, make sure there is at least 2 feet of space on each side
  5. Note any slopes present in the setup location
Measuring the Setup Area
The first step is to find out the space requirement of the inflatable you are reserving. Usually the space required for inflatables is about 1-2 feet of additional space on each side, this includes the height. There needs to be no electrical lines going above the inflatable or any trees or bushes rubbing up against the inflatable.

To measure your area without a measuring tape, simply estimate each step as three feet. For example if it takes 30 steps to walk the width of your lawn, it is 90 feet wide. However, using a measuring tape is the most accurate method.

You can also draw a diagram detailing the area, dimensions in feet, and locations of any trees, bushes, poles, or any other objects that might interfere with setup. Drawing a diagram helps see the entire area and where the inflatable can be setup. 

Measuring the Slope
You may need to measure the slope of the setup area to make sure it will not be too steep. Here are some steps you can take to properly measure the slope of area.

Things You'll Need:

  • Poles of even height
  • String
  • Level
  • Yard stick
  1. Use a line level, which is two poles of the exact same height (50 inches would be good) with string running between the poles. At the exact center of the string, a level is suspended. There are also notches at the exact same interval in each pole. Have one person stand on the slope holding one pole and the other person stand exactly down the slop from him holding the other pole with string running through the top notch.
  2. Make the string level. The person at the top of the slope should move the string to the different notches on his pole until the level suspended from the middle of the string shows a level setting.
  3. Calculate the slope by measuring the distance from the notch where the string was placed to the top of the pole. Slope is a percentage, meaning the number of units falls or rises in 100 units of horizontal distance. Every inch from the top of the 50-inch pole equals 2 percent of slope (with the top of the pole being originally level with the second pole, showing a 0 percent grade). The lower the string must be on the pole to be level, the higher the percent of slope. A notch 4 inches down the pole indicates an 8 percent slope and a notch 8 inches down the pole indicates a 16 percent slope.
  4. Use another method of measuring slope with just one person. With a stick that is 50 inches long, a level, a pencil and a yard stick, stand on the slope holding the yard stick upright.
  5. Place the stick on the slope, and hold the level on the end of the stick nearest you. Raise the stick until it is level.
  6. Mark the height on the yard stick where the 50-inch stick is level. Measuring from the ground up, determine the height necessary for the 50-inch stick to be level.
  7. Measure the slope of the land by multiplying the height from the ground required for level by two. This figure will be your percent of slope.

SAFETY: Inflatable Safety Rules

Need instructions for cotton candy, popcorn machine, or snow cone machine operation? Want to have a paper copy of the safety rules that must be followed during usage of any inflatable product? Visit the Inflatable Safety page for more information.

Inflatable safety rules are very important to understand and follow during usage. Inflatables are small amusement rides that can potentially cause harm or damage to people or property if not used in the manner advised.

The following are videos of unsafe usage and how NOT TO use an inflatable. These instances are potentially dangerous and can cause injuries or damages. Attendants should be present at all times so events like this don't happen and people don't get injured.

This video shows the attendant or parent not doing their job.
