Smyths is selling a 6ft bouncy castle for £100


SMYTHS is selling a massive bouncy castle, that you can set up in your garden, for £100.

The Airflow bouncy castle measures 6ft and it’s perfect to entertain the kids with the summer holidays fast approaching.

The bouncy castle has been reduced by £10 already


The bouncy castle has been reduced by £10 already

It costs £99.99 to buy from the toy superstore, but it was originally £109.99, which means you can save £10 off the full price right now.

The purchase includes one bouncer, an electronic air blower to maintain a continuous airflow, four bouncer stakes, four air blower stakes and a repair kit to keep the fun going all summer.

It’s made of durable PVC material and nylon and has extra protection against air leaks too.

The sides between the funky coloured pillars are fitted with a mesh net so there’s plenty of light let into the castle, while also providing extra safety to stop anyone falling out.

How to compare prices to get the best deal

JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.

There are plenty of comparison websites out there that’ll check prices for you – so don’t be left paying more than you have to.

Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.

Here are some that we recommend:

  • Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
  • Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
  • Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
  • CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.

There is a maximum user weight of 68kg which roughly means you could have two little ones bouncing away at one time.


You can order the bouncy castle online or pick it up in store at Smyths.

Delivery is free though so you won’t have to worry about any extra fees, but if you don’t fancy the two to three days wait for it to reach your door, you can click and collect for free too.

Use Smyths store locator to find your closest one, you can also use the postcode tool to double check how many are in stock as it will be subject to availability.

For example, when we checked, there were eight in stock at the Smyths store in Enfield, but only three in stock at Basingstoke’s Smyths.

As always, it’s best to shop around before you commit to a purchase, as you may find a better deal elsewhere.

You can buy a Chad Valley inflatable bouncy castle for only £35 which makes it £65 cheaper than Smyths, but it’s only big enough to fit one child at a time and doesn’t include a pump to blow it up.

It does only take five minutes to inflate and you don’t have to leave an air pump running to keep it up, but it might mean you have to keep re-inflating after a long period of bouncing.

Amazon is selling an inflatable Bestway bouncy castle for £70, making it £30 cheaper than the Smyths version, it also has free delivery included too.

It’s made from sturdy vinyl material in a colourful and interactive design that includes a ring toss game built into one of the castle’s walls.

This one is roughly 5ft so for a slightly cheaper price you won’t have to compromise as much on size.

For more back garden fun for the kids, Aldi is selling a giant inflatable water slide but it’s more on the expensive side, as it will set you back £250.

The same store has also brought back its popular inflatable boats and a kayak for just £40 each, if you fancy a summer adventure on the water.

Plus, one thrifty family has turned their old trampoline into a massive back garden swimming pool.
