Childhood injuries related to inflatable bouncers are on the rise, according to a study published in the journal Pediatrics.

Bounce houses and moonwalks that are popular at parties can put children at risk for fractures, strains, and even collisions.

Doctors found from 2008 to 2010, the number of injuries more than doubled with an average of 31 children injured per day.

Doctors recommend guidelines for bouncer usage and better design to prevent injury.
