Bounce houses have grown in popularity and the number of kids injured by them has also increased

While the popularity of bounce houses has grown, the number of kids being injured in them has also grown.

The Child Injury Prevention Alliance estimates that more than 30 children a day, about one child every 45 minutes is injured nationwide playing in a bounce house.

Many of the children are 5-years old or younger.  Injuries that have been reported include broken bones, bumps, bruises and even concussions.

Safety experts recommend you only let one child play in a bounce house at a time. If you allow multiple kids to play, you should make sure they’re similar sizes.

Kids should be at least 6 years old and always have adult supervision.
