Army Captain and His Wife Start Inflatable Playground

Jump N Jack's

Army Captain Uche Njoku is constantly being sent to training or deployed overseas for his job in the military. With the nature of job taking him away from home so often, Njoku’s wife, Tahiana, is left to entertain her two children by herself for months out of the year.

Tahiana would have the most trouble finding things to keep her children entertained in the winter time. She and her husband have two children, Xavier, 9, and Jisella, 5. Njoku was stationed in Iraq in January 2011, and due to the harsh Colorado winter weather, the schools were closed for a week. Tahiana was stuck inside theInflatable Playgroundir 2,000 square foot home during that week and were beginning to experience cabin fever. Tahiana’s frustration with the lack of active entertainment options in her area would give her a great idea. The Njoku family, with the help of a cousin, opened up Jump-N-Jack’s at the Citadel Crossing shopping center soon after.

Jump-N-Jack’s is located inside of a 17,500 square foot building and offers an abundance of inflatable play areas. The children can run, jump, climb, and slide on all of the different inflatable playgrounds. The kids have a great time on all of the brightly-colored and themed inflatables while burning some energy. It is great for the kids physically and is a better alternative than sitting home and keeping them busy with video games.

At first, the family considered a franchise, but ultimately they decided on starting their own business. In all, they invested around $250,000 to open their indoor inflatable playground. After starting with an initial investment of $150,000 from their savings, they took out a loan for the rest. After eight months of searching for the perfect building and location, Jump-N-Jack’s was opened.Kids' Inflatables

The playground features a 65-foot long obstacle course that proves to be a fan favorite. Jump-N-Jack’s also has several inflatable slides, jump houses, and other attractions. There is a separate play area for toddlers and another spot with Wi-Fi and televisions for parents who want to work or relax. The Jack’s café offers up pizza, sandwiches, salads, and other items for when the little ones get hungry.

Other similar businesses in the area have failed, while some have strived. The family believes that the size of their play area and the low prices will attract more customers. Children can spend the whole day bouncing and sliding for only $8.99.


Traveling Show uses Rainforest inflatable to Make Learning Fun


Bixby's Inflatable Rainforest

The Bixby’s Inflatable Rainforest was entertaining families recently at the Sioux Falls Convention Center in South Dakota. The traveling exhibit goes around the country to teach kids about how they can protect the rainforest while having a good time. Bixby’s offers crafts, live animals, stage shows, and inflatable rainforest rides.

The Bixby’s Inflatable Rainforest traveling exhibit is part of a series of exhibits called Bixby & Friends. All of the exhibits have educational themes and focus on teaching kids through fun activities. Bixby and his friends most recently visited the Sioux Falls Convention Center to teach kids about preserving the rainforest. Families came to learn about saving the rainforest and the exotic animals that live there.

The exhibit is geared towards children between the ages of 1 and 12. The BixbInflatable Rock Climbing Wally’s Inflatable Rainforest tries to not only teach the children, but enrich family interaction and involvement. Bixby’s Interactive Rainforest is 50,000 square feet, which is plenty of room for kids to explore and learn. The main attractions are the three large inflatables that the kids can interact with. The Tiki Island Climbing Wall, Bixby’s Ball Crawl, and Bixby’s Rainforest Express Train are fan favorites. The large inflatable rock climbing wall is popular among the kids, as they get to climb up to the top of the inflatable mountain side.

The event brings education and entertainment together. They hope to raise awareness about the destruction and deforestation of the rainforest. Many people are not aware that over 46 million acres of rainforest are lost every year. By informing the families and children at a young age, they hope they will be more conscious of this issue all their life. Taught different ways they can help, such as recycling, the kids can be active advocators for the cause.

The Bixby’s Inflatable Rainforest is a great event for the whole family. The kids will learn a great deal about preserving the rainforest while having an amazing time. Bixby & Friends also have exhibits about the ocean, the desert, and farming and agriculture.
