Ask any young child where their favorite place to be is in a vast majority of them will point to a ball pit. Ball pits have been around for quite some time, and they’re one of the favorite places for most children to go because not only are you able to roll around without risk of injury, you are also able to jump into the balls, and to throw them, all of the same time. Jumping, rolling, and throwing – three things almost all children love. Because of this, many bounce house rental business owners are looking into purchasing moonbounce units that are designed to be able to handle a pit full of balls. Is this really a good idea?
Unfortunately, there has been a great deal of controversy in the world of ball pits, and often for a good reason. If you look online you will find a number of horror stories about children getting injured when they were in this type of play apparatus. Often they are injured because the employees do not have the foresight to thoroughly check the pit on a daily basis, allowing things that should not be in the apparatus, such as things that can injure child, to remain there. Because of these horror stories, many parents are now more cautious about allowing their child to go into a ball pit than ever before.
That doesn’t mean that you can purchase a moonbounce unit that is designed to hold balls. If this is the way you would like your business to grow, it is important to make sure that your clients realize that their children will be safe in the inflatable unit. When you advertise, or when you talk to parents, explain that you have to remove the balls every time you take the unit down. This means they are easily able to see anything that fell into the ball pit while the children were playing there. Yes, removing and adding the balls each time you set up the unit can be a bit frustrating, but it is basically the only sanitary way to make sure that you have an apparatus the parents are going to want to pay to rent. There are a number of different moonbounce units that are perfectly designed for this type of play structure, and with the many different prices available, it may be something worth looking into.
