How safe is a bounce house?
Safety is of prime concern when raising children or taking care of kids. This week we have been watching a horrible story involving a bounce house.
If you have one of these playful houses in your yard or your child uses them at other kids’ homes then you need to be aware of the safety of this “toy”.
Children should never be playing in these inflatable houses when it is windy outside as they may be lifted off the ground, as happened in upstate New York, a couple of days ago.
There are several other cases of injuries when commercial bouncing houses have been tossed about by winds…truly dangerous and sometimes tragic injuries have been sustained during such accidents.
A bounce house can be safe but children should always be observed by an adult while they are playing outside in these enclosures.
