About Us



For nearly a decade, TJ Party Rentals has provided elite-level entertainment for Iowa’s biggest and best events. A locally owned and family-operated business, TJ Party Rentals was founded by the trusted husband and wife team of Jeff and Toni Anderson and their son, Josh Anderson, who heads up their Des Moines location.

The Andersons broke into the entertainment business in 1992 after developing a line of portable batting cages and driving ranges. These unique items had become quite a hit (pun intended) among North Central Iowa-area corporate picnics and private parties, and clients were soon clamoring for more top-notch interactive entertainment. Striving to keep their customers satisfied, the Andersons began accumulating an impressive inventory of high-quality inflatables and games, and in 2004 they established TJ Party Rentals.

As Iowa’s demand for safe, locally owned inflatables grew, word of the Andersons’ excellent selection and trustworthy reputation spread. By 2007, TJ Party Rentals had developed and retained an extremely satisfied customer base, and thanks to an overwhelming number of enthusiastic referrals, their clientele had expanded to include school functions, city festivals, county fairs and high-profile charity events reaching out to every corner of the state.

Following an expansion of their Des Moines facility in 2011, TJ Party Rentals continues to grow it’s business annually and had it’s biggest year in 2013. TJ Party Rentals now owns over 100 pieces of entertainment equipment—the largest selection in Iowa. Though they are now able to handle the biggest of corporate events, the Andersons have kept their business a family affair and they still deliver the same friendly and dependable experience they have since day one.

In the Spring of 2014, the Anderson family further expanded their business with the purchase of a mobile gaming theater under the name of Game On Iowa.
