I have also been wondering if they will be doing licensed equipment myself.  It may be that they haven't established a new contract between Disney/Marvel and Bounce Buy.  Unless Bounce Buy wants to Chime In, I guess time will tell.

Ninja is done with licensed units. They also are not attending IAAPA this year.

The law suit triggered a whole slew of events that caused the change. First off, they had to disolve which would help alienate them from future law suits. Second, the amount of the suit affected their insurance rates. The costs led to the sale of their current building, and them finding a new one. The licensing aspect started to become both too expensive, and people did not want the risk associated with their names, Disney, Pixar, etc.  So, the decision to cut the licensed items was made. This also would free up money for the change.  Staff has been slightly reduced, the new name, the move, its been rough on the Ninja family. NONE of these manufacturers, in my opinion, could have survived as well as NJ did.

Thanks all for the feedback. I know this forum has quieted down some, but so thankful the community exists to enlighten us when the need arises.

 

Same with inflatable2000? They "rebranded" this morning -- seems more marketing related than necessity.

 

Thanks all for sharing.

So are licensed inflatables a thing of the past for now?? A big part of my winter rentals was based off of them and they are starting to get older and worn.

 

Thanks for any insight.

I just noticed that both NinjaJump.com and BounceBuy.com have websites operating (2019 now), with different phone numbers at the top.  Are we at a point where NinjaJump can be brought back and Bouncebuy phased out, or will they be separate companies?

 

Also noticed that Juan split from HappyJump and is selling inflatables as UniqueWorldUSA.
