The site will now be operated by Dash Wholesale, the company behind the world’s leading online seller of Ordnance Survey maps, Dash4it.co.uk.
The Bouncy Happy People brand will remain, and founder Patrick Polglase believes the move is good news for the site’s 30,000 customers.
He said: “Because they’re that much bigger, they’re ideally positioned to take Bouncy Happy People on to the next level.”
Since moving into ecommerce, 80-year-old Redruth firm Dash has already sold one million maps. The acquisition takes the company’s customer base to over 150,000.
Managing director Stephen Dash added: “Ecommerce is one of those industries where you quickly get real economies of scale – so the bigger we are, the better value and service we can offer.”

"Superb and friendly service. I needed a particular dolls house for my granddaughter at short notice. Not only did they stock the exact item, but were able to arrange delivery to the far reaches of the country the following day! Their telephone arrangements were superb, precise and friendly, making shopping with them a delight. The product was of course exactly as expected, but the main issue was delivery time, at which they excelled. Thank you from a grateful granddad!"
"A big thank you to Bouncy Happy People for making our grandson a very happy person. When our purchase arrived it didn't work. The service we have received from Bouncy Happy people was second to none and we have no hesitation in recommending them to our friends. Thank you."

"I ordered a Penny skateboard & received really friendly, professional service over the phone. The board arrived super fast too & it even came with a skate poster which now lives on my wall :) The Penny board is excellent for taking around town & is really light. I'm just using it to get around town because walking is overrated, but I'm definitely going to learn some tricks on it & take it out to play "
