Inflatable / January 25, 2019 / Esperanza Langlais
The DVD Ant Farm has directions for creating your personal inflatables using plastic bags and an iron. The low technological barrier to building inflatables is additional lowered by DIY instruction sets like the Inflatocookbook. The inflatable party rentals industry is relatively premature when compared to other industries for party equipment and supplies rental. For instance there is no authoritative bounce house safety organization to control the inflatable rental industry. The top safety regulatory organizations are the states which designate the safety rules for that particular area and if there are no such rules then they follow those set by the ASTM.
Inflatable costumes are lightweight and cool thus the wearer would not have a difficult time carrying it around for hours. There is also no need for the person inside the costume to worry about dripping sweat and losing his or her breath-the wearer will bring with him a fan and an equally lightweight power pack to keep the costume inflated. Thus it will be entirely comfortable to be inside the inflated suit and interaction with audiences will be more genuine and heartfelt. The inflatable balloons on the other hand are durable balloons that incorporate a companys brand pr product catch images.
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
