Book Santa for Your Holiday Office Party and Kick the Season Off Right!

Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s that time of year again; the holidays are just around the corner. That means it’s time to start making the arrangements for the annual holiday office party. There are so many things to arrange: caterers, the location, a DJ, decorations, and so much more. The one thing you can’t forget is to make sure you have Santa Claus in the house!

Why Have a Santa?

Just because it’s an annual holiday office party, it doesn’t mean it can’t be one that everyone’s family can come to. In fact, more office parties are switching over to including their employees’ families. And if you are having a family-friendly holiday party, you need to make sure to arrange the Santa party rental early.

Santa party rental appointments go fast, and if you don’t book early, you may not be able to find a Santa when you need him. At San Diego Kids Party Rentals, we have two different types of Santas for you to choose from: the traditional Santa with a fake beard and our Santas with a real beard.

Years of Experience

Our Santas have years of experience and are professionals in every way. They will sing songs with the kids, spread acres of holiday cheer, and of course, there is the traditional picture with Santa. Our Santas will let the kids sit on his lap and tell him what they want for Christmas this year. They are kind, patient, and wonderful with the kids. They are perfect for office holiday parties, school parties, parades, home visits, and more.

We offer outstanding Santa party rental rates for corporate events with booking running in half-hour increments from 2 to 4 hours. We ask that you keep in mind: there is an additional charge for a Santa on Christmas Eve. For corporate events, your Santa will mingle with your guests, maybe do a little bit of magic, and pose for family/group photos.

Don’t Forget the Missus

If your holiday office party is a larger event, Santa may not be able to handle the crowd by himself. Ask us about adding Mrs. Claus or some elves to the party. Mrs. Claus and the elves love to paint faces and make balloon animals and figures. By the time Santa heads back to the North Pole, everyone will have had a chance to say hi and have their picture taken with him.

This year, make sure your holiday office party is a big hit. Book your Santa party rental early and let the holiday begin with a hearty HO! HO! HO!

Start Planning Your Christmas Party Now for the Best Selection of Christmas Party Rentals

Christmas comes but once a year, but this year it’s your turn to plan the Christmas party for your elementary school kids. It’s not that you mind being put in charge, but more that you have no idea what kind of things kids like to do at this time of year, especially when you live in sunny Southern California. At San Diego Kids Party Rentals, we have a fabulous selection of Christmas party rentals that are sure to help with your upcoming holiday parties.

Start with a Bounce House

Our catalog of holiday-themed party rentals starts with bounce houses. We have a large selection of Christmas-themed bounce houses, with and without slides, from which to choose. Each house has large open sides with safety mesh, so you can easily keep an eye on what’s going on inside.

We also have a couple of different cute gingerbread bounce houses among our selection of Christmas party rentals. These bounce houses are designed to closely resemble the gingerbread houses we all remember from our childhood, complete with a snow-covered roof, lots of Christmas decorations and a sign that reads “Merry Christmas” above the entry. Each has an inflatable ramp, and we have models with slides that add to the fun.

Add in the Extras

This is only the start of the list of Christmas party rentals we have available for your holiday party. Just because it never snows in Southern California, it doesn’t mean you can’t have snow at your party! One of the most popular holiday-themed party rentals we have is our snow machine. Deck the halls with tons of snow……! Well, artificial snow made using a biodegradable snow liquid that blows foamy “snow” up in the air where it will float slowly down to coat everything it touches.

Now we’re getting the party started! We also have an 8-foot tall inflatable snowman. But it’s more than just an inflatable snowman; there is a person inside, turning your “inflatable” snowman into a “live action” figure.

Kids can’t resist airbrushed tattoos; we can supply your party with an airbrush tattoo artist that specializes in creating Christmas themed airbrush tattoos for kids of all ages using non-toxic, kid-friendly paints.

From here you can add in the personal touch of one of our actors who can be there for one hour or the whole party. We have the Grinch, a holiday elf, a pink girl elf, and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus. Your character will engage the kids in songs, games, hand out candy canes, and more. If you rent a Santa, you can choose between one with a traditional (synthetic) beard or one with a real beard. Both will let the kids sit on their laps so that can tell “Santa” what they want for Christmas.

This year, why not make your Christmas party extra-special by choosing a bounce house and several of our other Christmas party rentals? At San Diego Kids Party Rentals, delivery, set up, tear down, and return is all included in the price. Contact us at (858) 272-2700 or online to reserve your holiday-themed party rentals now.

Take Your Halloween Party to the Next Level with Our Halloween Bounce Houses and More

It’s that time of year, or at least it soon will be. What time is that? Spooky Time, when all the little ghouls and goblins come out of the deep, dark forests to steal your treats or play their wicked tricks on those without treats. Yep, Halloween is just around the corner and along with it, Halloween parties for kids of all ages. These days, kids seem to want more in their parties, so why not consider adding one of the Halloween bounces houses from San Diego Kids Party Rentals to the event?

You Can’t Go Wrong with Halloween Bounce Houses

Whether you are putting together a Halloween party for your school, daycare, block party, or even for your friends and family, we offer a large selection of Halloween party rentals to help take your event to the next level. From smoke machines designed to create an eerie fog that will creep throughout the area, to Halloween bounce houses and even portable haunted houses, we carry everything you need.

The Pumpkin Halloween 5-in-1 bounce house is one of our most popular units. Not only is this a bounce house with a spooky theme, but there is also a climbing ramp, obstacles to overcome, a slide, and an inflatable basketball hoop. Talk about a great way to keep the kids busy and happy! With so many activities all in one place, you can keep a lot more of them busy at the same time. The only things you need to provide are enough space for the bounce house to sit with a clear space overhead and access to power within one hundred feet. The location you pick also needs to have an access road or gate that is a minimum of 36 inches wide.

Pick a Theme

If you are the one planning your Halloween party, then you get to be the one to choose the theme (if you are going to have one). The best thing about having a theme is that it helps you choose and put together everything you need (like decorations, plates and napkins, etc.). Currently, there are five themed Halloween party rentals available. These are all haunted houses, and the themes are:

  • Creepy Circus
  • Grim Graveyard
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Pirate Ship
  • Spooky Swamp

Each of these kits comes with a themed haunted house, professionally-made and animatronic props, lights, music, illuminated wall hangings, and a Haunted Host who will guide your guests into the house of terror. For those who don’t have access to a power connection, a generator can be provided.

Ready to make your choice of haunted house even scarier than it already is? You can hire one of our live scary characters to hide in the haunted house and scare people. While it does cost extra to hire one of our pros, the end result will be truly terrified guests, tons of laughter, and a guarantee that everyone had a great time.

For more information on our Halloween bounce houses and Halloween party rentals, contact San Diego Kids Party Rentals at (858) 560-2700 or visit us online. Be sure to book early; our appointment books are already filling up!

Theme Parties Make the Best Birthday Parties – We’ll Help with the Planning!

Kids love theme parties when it’s their birthday and all of their friends are coming over. Your kid loves pirates, but the last thing you want is for the kids to show up to nothing but cardboard pirate hats and plastic swords. They’re getting a little bit old for this. So, this year, you are determined to create the ultimate theme party their friends will never forget. Your little budding artist loves to color, so why not throw her an artist’s party with our Color My World ultimate party package? This is only a modest selection of the themes we can help you create for the perfect party for your kids.

We Have More than Rental Supplies

Any party rentals store can claim to have everything you need for theme parties, but do you really know what you need to make the perfect day? Most people have at least a little bit of an idea of what they want but may not know what is available or how to put everything together. On our website, we have created a selection of the more popular themes for you to consider.

On each page, we list the party rentals designed to match the theme. For example, our Princess Parties listing includes everything your little princess could ever want to make her birthday party dream come true. This includes several Disney Princess-themed bounce houses, an inflatable throne, and you can rent your own character to hang out with the girls and make the party complete. Choose from the Ice Queen, the Ice Sisters, a Mermaid Princess, the Sleeping Princess, Princess Bella, and more.

Got a jungle lover in the family? Why not throw them a jungle-themed party with our selection of jungle-related party rentals. We have a jungle canopy tent, an animal kingdom playland, multiple games, face painting, and our highly popular dinosaur fossil party that starts with an introduction to everything dinosaur. Your kids will get to learn about their favorite dinosaurs, read a story, play some great paleo-themed games, and then get to dig for “fossils” in the four-foot Dinosaur Dig Site.

More Than Party Rentals

At San Diego Kids Party Rentals, we do more than just carry a great selection of party rentals for theme parties; we are here to help you in every possible way. You can order everything online or on the phone. After you place your order and the day arrives for your party, we will deliver your order in plenty of time, set everything up in the location you choose, make sure any inflatables are plugged in, fully inflated, secured, and tested.

Once the party is over, our team will come back to pick everything up and return it to the warehouse. The only thing you have to think about is making sure your kids all have a great time. For more information, visit us online or call us at (858) 560-2700. Be sure to book early as our party rentals go fast.

Back to School Parties Call for Inflatables and Slides

It’s just about that time again. Time for the kids to go back to school! And you know what that means: back to school parties. This all sound so good, at least until they tell you it’s your turn to plan the big event. While ordering the food, drinks, and so forth is the easy part, finding the right activities like a bounce house or one of the great new inflatable slides can prove to be just a little more difficult.

Finding the Right Fit

Before you get too excited about the idea of having a bounce house, you need to make sure the location of your back to school party is going to have enough space for it and for everything else you have planned for the event. When you order your inflatable house or slide from San Diego Kids Party Rentals, we let you know how much space it takes up or needs in total.

The area you choose should have a way to anchor the item securely to the ground and an outlet to connect the air pump. If the area you select does not have access to an electrical outlet, we can provide you with a generator; all you need then is a fuel can and the fuel. Our generators are quiet and will not disturb your guests in any way.

We Deliver to Your Party

Another concern many customers have expressed is that of being told by other suppliers that they have to provide their own transportation for the bounce house they rent. At San Diego Kids Party Rental, we not only deliver your bounce house or inflatable slides to your location, but our technicians will also set them up for you, test them, and secure them to the ground. More than this, once the rental is over, we come back to take the unit or units down, pack them up, and return everything to our warehouse, all as part of your rental fee.

Your kids are going to love having a bounce house to jump around in for a few hours, or maybe a couple of inflatable slides or water slides play on. When it comes to creating a fun back to school party, we have everything you could possibly need to turn a humdrum party into one of the greatest parties your kids have ever seen.

Along with a fantastic selection of inflatables, we offer the largest selection of carnival games in town, enough to create your own Midway, complete with prizes. But, no matter how many games you have to play, every kid that attends, both young and old, are sure to spend plenty of time jumping around and having a great time in the bounce house or inflatable slides you brought in from San Diego Kids Party Rentals. Don’t wait too long — we have very limited availability at this time of year; everything goes fast. Call us at (858) 560-2700 or visit us online to book your rental today and avoid disappointment for your back to your school party!

Start Planning Now for the School Carnival – We Have Carnival Games to Suit Everyone

Just because your school is out on summer break doesn’t mean you don’t still have work to do. Most teachers and school administrators carry on working over the break. There are so many things to plan – from the new curriculum for the next class to organizing the annual school carnival in October. This year, you have been put in charge of planning and need to come up with something fun that isn’t going to cost the school a fortune. At the same time, you have to come up with something to keep the kids happy. Why not talk to the pros at San Diego Kids Party Rentals about their selection of carnival games in San Diego?

We Have Carnival Games for Rent

Carnival games evoke memories in most adults of wandering around the Midway tossing hoops over a bottle or throwing bean bags at milk bottle targets to win a prize. There was nothing like going home at the end of the day with a prize or two tucked under your arm. Times might have changed, with video games taking over at home and, of course, the age of cell phones and computers. But, kids are still kids, and all they really want to do is have fun.

What better way to give your students exactly what they want than with a selection of carnival games from San Diego Kids Party Rentals. We have over 65 different carnival games for rent. Many are the same games we have all been playing at carnivals for years such as Down a Clown (target game), miniature golf holes, balloon pop, and more. Others like Alien pinball are a little more up-to-date, but all are guaranteed to provide your students with a full three hours of fun and games for their school carnival.

We Make Everything Easy for You

At San Diego Kids Party Rentals, we set out to make everything easy for you. We offer three different packages of carnival games in San Diego for each age group. Our packages include age-appropriate inflatable games and carnival games for rent. Not only do we discount these packages by up to 20%, but we deliver them to your school, set everything up for you so that it’s ready to go, and provide all the power you need.

When you rent our carnival games, after delivery and set-up, we make sure all games are fully operational, and then when your rental period is over, we come back, disassemble and deflate everything before taking it back to our warehouse. The only thing you have to worry about is selling tickets and watching your students and their families have a great time.

The earlier you book your carnival games in San Diego, the better the chances are that everything you want will be available. Start planning your fall School Carnival today by contacting San Diego Kids Party Rentals at (858) 560-2700. If you wait too long, you may find the games or packages you’re interested in will already be booked. Don’t delay; call us!

Inflatable Obstacle Courses Add Learning to Your Child’s Birthday Party

Did you know that obstacle courses for kids up the age of five or six are more than just great fun (this includes inflatable obstacle courses just as much as permanent or home-made ones)? The more activities your child has to complete, the better. Your child will see the different exercises as fun and challenge themselves to achieve them. What they don’t know is that the more they master the obstacle course, the more they are improving both fine and gross motor skills.

Obstacle Courses Teach Memory and Sequencing

Most inflatable obstacle courses require your child to complete specific steps in the correct sequence to get to the end. Not only will your child start to understand how to accomplish things in the right order to complete the task, but with repetition, they will memorize the steps. The more complicated the course is, the more it will teach your child to use their memory and how to work in a specific order to complete a task. All while having the most fun any child can have on their birthday!

It Does a Body Good

An obstacle course should be made such that it includes both strength and balance tasks. Climbing walls, balance beams, monkey bars, or anything that works their muscles and helps them develop their sense of balance are all part of what goes into making a good course. So, too, are mazes, ball pits, walls to go over, and bars to go under — all things many inflatable obstacle courses offer.


Obstacle courses also teach kids to challenge themselves in several different ways. The first challenge is to learn their way through each of the obstacles. At the same time, this is testing their memory. The next challenge is learning the sequence in which the different obstacles appear. Then, it’s all about challenging themselves to see how fast they can make it from one end to the other. Each time your child meets their next challenge they are learning to master new skills.

Who Would Have Thought?

Who would have thought that something as simple as an obstacle course designed to keep your child and their friends happy and busy at your child’s birthday party had such an important side benefit? Play like this has been proven to help with building both body and core strength, body awareness (this covers learning where the various parts of their body are in relation to the space around them and how the different positions relate to each other), and hand-eye coordination.

Inflatable obstacle courses also help with motor planning (planning your next move before it happens), and “visual-motor integration” (a combination of what your child sees and what they do). These are all essential developmental skills.

Contact San Diego Kids Party rentals at (858) 560-2700 or visit us online to book one of our inflatable obstacle courses for your child’s birthday party today!

Dunk Tanks Bring Excitement to Summer Company Picnics

Are you tired of the same old boring company picnic every year? You know the one…where the guys from the mailroom get drunk and put on an impromptu concert? Or, last year, everyone sat around waiting for something fun to happen, and then half the people who showed up left early. With the company picnic coming around again, your boss is already picking your brain for ideas. Why not sneak in one our dunk tanks?

Our Dunk Tanks Take the Boredom Out

This year, it’s time for you start looking for something completely different; something that everyone (with the exception of the boss, who will get dunked) is sure to love. In fact, why even bother telling the boss? One of the dunk tanks available at San Diego Party Rentals is just what the doctor ordered to jazz up the party.

Can you imagine the look on your boss’s face when almost everyone in the company is lined up waiting for their turn at trying to dunk him or her? Most bosses will volunteer to sit in the hot seat just for fun, some will do it to prove they aren’t chicken, and others might just be there to see who is brave enough to try and dunk them!

Hours of Fun Without Tons of Cash

If your boss is like most in the world, he or she is going to ask you to plan the annual company picnic and make sure it’s fun, but in the same breath, tell you to keep the costs down. How on earth can you do both? Dunk tank rentals at San Diego Party Rentals, that’s how! Instead of spending a fortune buying a dunk tank, you can rent one just for the day. We offer both inflatable dunk tanks and premium dunk tanks on a trailer for you to choose from.

Both work in the same way: the “dunkee” sits on the seat, while everyone else lines up to throw softballs at the trigger target. Imagine how much fun the gang is going to have seeing how many times they can dunk the boss in a single session. We provide everything you need except for water and power. The inflatable dunk tanks hold 350 gallons of water; the premium version holds 550 gallons. Both are capable of holding a person of up to 250 lbs. on the seat.

When we come to pick up the dunk tanks at the end of the event, the dunk tanks will need to be drained before they can be removed. You will need to have somewhere for all of that water to be drained. It can be a wide expanse of grass or direct access to a drain. Visit San Diego Party Rentals where you can see our dunk tank selection, and reserve yours for the next company picnic.

Cool Off This Summer with an Inflatable Water Slide at Your Next Block Party

Ah! The good old summertime, when the livin’ is easy. That is, until you have to come up with something special for your next block party. While no one really wants to admit it, the annual summer block party has become a bit of a one-upmanship game. Last year, the neighbors down the block paid for one of those inflatable bouncy houses. This year, it’s your turn to provide the “big” plaything for the kids. If you are looking for a good idea, why not be the one who brings an inflatable water slide?

Why an Inflatable Water Slide?

Summers in the San Diego area can be very hot – especially inland – making for some very uncomfortable guests at the block party. If you add a water slide to the event, it will accomplish three things. First, you have just raised the block party bar to an all new level, setting the height for next year’s participants pretty high. Secondly, you’ve added something that kids of all ages can enjoy, and which will keep them occupied for hours at a time. And finally, it’s a great way to keep the kids cooled off when the heat gets to be unbearable.

The next question on your list is probably something along the lines of, “But aren’t inflatable water slides very expensive?” This might be true if you were actually planning to buy one. But, why on earth would you want to buy a water slide if all you are going to do is use it for one block party? A far better and more affordable choice would be to rent an inflatable water slide for the day of your block party.

The Advantages of Renting an Inflatable Water Slide vs. Buying One

Beyond not having to fork out thousands of dollars to buy a water slide you will probably only use once or twice, there are several other advantages to renting one instead. To start with, if you rent an inflatable water slide from San Diego Kids Party Rentals, you don’t have to find a way to get it to your home. As part of our rental service, we offer complete delivery and set up services. The only thing you need to provide is a source of power for the blower motor and source of water for the slide.

Then, there’s the tear-down and clean up: The kids are going to have an absolute blast all day long and you may have a hard time shutting it down at the end of the day. You’re probably dreading the idea of clearing it all up at the end. No problem there, either. When your party is over, our techs will come out, disassemble the inflatable water slide, pack everything back in the truck and return it to our warehouse.

For more information, see our complete selection of inflatable water slides, and book yours today. Visit San Diego Kids Party Rentals online and reserve your water slide early as they tend to book up fast in the summer season.
