FunAir Brings Inflatable Fun for All

FunAir Super Sweet SlideFunAir has created a new line of new inflatable water slides and games for consumer and commercial markets. A leader in premium sealed air inflatable yacht toys, FunAir is now looking to provide for families, resorts, festival owners, camps, and schools.

The new line includes the portable Gaga Ball Pit, which allows its version of Dodge Ball to go with its players; the 15-foot Dock Slide; and the giant FunAir Super Sweet Slide, which is a slippery slide taken to extremes.

The company’s sealed air inflatables are made with commercial-grade 28 oz. PVC materials with UV protection, and all FunAir products include an electric pump, which makes inflation quick and easy. After inflation, the pump stows safely away during play.

Here are some great outdoor toys that will make it a summer to remember:

The bumper also continuously sprays water, guaranteeing a cool, wet ride. [Read more...]
