In January 2021, we submitted an order for not one but THREE bouncy castles, which meant we couldn't call "Fun On Wheels Soft Play Hire" anymore!!! So we are now .... 🥁 ... Fun On Wheels Entertainments.
We decided to purchase these castles as it's likely that we'll only be able to hire to private households for the foreseeable future, and wanted to add equipment that could be used outdoors (in addition to the budget soft play pieces that we purchased last year).
All of our castles have been purchased new from Airquee. Not only is Airquee Europe's largest (and reputably best) inflatable manufacturer, they just so happen to have their registered office in our very own Cwmbran, a Valley town already famous for its generous parking arrangements.
Purchasing from a Wales-based company was very important to us, as we have been able to buy this equipment thanks to the Covid grant support that we received through Caerphilly Council. It only seemed right that we should return this money to the local economy.
With Airquee's permission, we are attaching some of their stock photos of the castles that we have ordered. We have:
- a 12ft x 12ft princess castle (so pink!!!) - a 4m x 3.3m (approx 13ft x 11ft) mini activity centre - a 12ft x 12ft interchangeable theme "velcro" castle, which comes with a choice of superhero, unicorn and dinosaur-themed artwork
Our new castles will hopefully be ready to hire by Easter, as long as it is safe to do so. Note that we will only be offering these castles for hire in private gardens on natural grass or - when possible - in indoor venues.
