  • He's turning two... why don't you just invite everyone over for cake? I guarantee the kids will just play with the toys your son already has and they'll have a great time. I honestly think the only reason to ever pay out the ass to have a kid's party elsewhere is if your house is too small to accomodate all the people you want to invite - if you're only inviting a few kids, just have it at home and skip the bouncy castle.

  • Well he's 2 why do you have to have the bouncy he won't really miss it will he, not at age 2? Just have a few family and friends over and play a few kid friendly games. I have had to cancel those parties for lack of it was 10 once, I wasn't spending $ for kids that weren't there. My DD was just as happy having it at home w/her friends.

  • i would do it at home...maybe go somewhere when he's 3 or 4...they don't remember it and they're usually more comfy at home.

  • I also have other children so I was thinking if I bought a bouncy castle I would get years of good use for it as it is on sale. Also I live abit far out and was thinking the playcenter would be closer since alot of the people dont have cars and we have to pick every1 up
