According to a bizarre and uncomfortable report on Greenwire, “[l]ead levels in inflatable kid’s bounce houses can be dozens of times the federal safe limit, according to a lawsuit filed by California Attorney General Jerry Brown (D) against manufacturers,” with tests finding that the vinyl that gives the houses their bounce can contain 90 times the amount of lead allowed under federal law.  Manufacturers dispute this, but the apparently simply strategy is to make sure your kids wipe their hands after using a bounce house.
