Inflatable Play Equipment - The Next Generation of Fun!

Jul 17, 2008
When you think of inflatable, maybe it's the old plastic floaties that we used to put on our arms when we were kids that come to mind. In today's modern world the word 'inflatable,' means so much more.

There are inflatable play equipment, toys, boats, balloons and even inflatable furniture!! In this article we are going to look at the fun world of inflatable toys. They range from tiny hand held toys to the massive play equipment that is often found at the local fair.

A specific technology is involved in designing branded inflatables. Rigorous testing at every stage of development is essential, and once an inflatable product has been manufactured and erected for use, the testing continues to ensure the safety of those that will then use the product.

There are many instances where a person known as a safety inspector will visit a site where inflatable play equipment has been erected to check that it has been erected in compliance with all safety standards. It is important to be sure that the inflatable play equipment has a surface with a good grip. This will help to reduce grazing, as well as tumbling and falling, which are common practices with children. The main purpose of a suitable surface on any inflatable play equipment that children will be playing on is to be absolutely certain that no head injuries could occur. When an inspector is looking at inflatable's that children will use, the inspector is considering safety from the point of view of risk within acceptable limits.

It is always advisable that children do not wear shoes when playing on inflatable equipment. This is one of the major reasons why it is important that when the manufacturing process takes place, a good non-slip surface is created. Parents would be wise to also consider the type of clothing their children are wearing, if they know that their child will be playing on inflatable play equipment. Any item of clothing that has little buckles or perhaps even a belt could lead to injury.

Once the safety aspects have been addressed it is time to have fun. Close your eyes and imagine the many forms of printed inflatable children's play equipment available. They come in a vast array of themes ranging from jumping castles to climbing equipment. There is something for every age group, although it is usually recommended that teenagers do not engage in play on this type of equipment.

Quite often branded inflatable's are used to promote an event such as a major football game, or a racing carnival. In fact, many companies choose to leverage them as a branding tool. There is something about them that is attractive to the eye, and uplifting to the spirit. Children just love them.

An entire playground can be erected using branded inflatable's and could include a slide, an obstacle course, a bouncy castle, and a ball pool. Hours of fun, laughter and healthy activity for children can be had at a cost that is truly affordable, if you are planning a special event like a get together for your child.

So next time you hear the word 'inflatable,' maybe it will be the sound of children playing that will come to mind with a feeling of happiness as you remember their sounds of laughter. And, if you are looking for a fun way to promote your business, consider using branded inflatables.
