This is a throwback to my childhood with major improvements. Not every backyard is appropriate for a pool. And even if you do have a pool, there’s just something special about running through a sprinkler.I bought this for the nieces and nephews. We set it up in no time flat. My brother and I were laughing about how much things have improved since our childhood. This toy is all fun an no risk. But seriously, this is fantastic. It really was a blast. And yes, my brother and I tried it!
So far, it's the best slide we have ever owned. Easy to setup, water filled and sprinkled in seconds from starting the hose, the stakes stayed in the yard and NO rips after the first use. The sprinkles freely flowed from all holes and there were no dead spots and the kids were able go slide and build up speed that took them past the end of the slide. We have only used it with two kids but so far it's great. Two things to note: First, after setting it up and turning the water on you have to walk the perimeter of the slide and adjust it by turning the edges inward. After adjusting then the sprinkles stay flowing onto the slide instead of the surrounding grass. If your kids slide past the end of the slide then it may need flipped inward again. It's easy to do and keeps the slide slick.Second, the nozzle that connects to the hose leaks and I mean LEAKS. We had to keep the hose on high to keep the water sprinkling at a good height but a lot of water leaks at the connector and will flood the nearby grass, sidewalk, flowerbeds ect. It is a bummer that so much water is lost before reaching the slide and I wish that piece was sturdier. I am going to try to seal it myself and hope that helps.Overall, it's worth it. I will update after more uses to see the long term durability.
Had kids of all ages and sizes on this, this past weekend and it held up great! Alot better than I thought it would actually, based on the price. No issues after its first use. Hopefully it continues to hold up for the summer for our kids to enjoy!
My nephew is turning 7. My sister decided to have a small gatherings at her house for a few of his school friends. She had a inflatable pool set up and I ordered this neat waterslide for the kids to play on. When it arrived I got excited looking at it and even more helping her set it up. The kids had such a good time slipping and sliding their way down it. It seems to be pretty durable as they werent exactly fragile while running and jumping however we haven't found any issues. Unfortunately the connector does leak a bit and water sort of gets all over the place. But once it fills up and startes to sprinkle it is best it you go around and ajust the walls of the slide to point the sprinkles toward to slide and not out to the grass. After we did that it seemed to work better and got more water on the slide where we wanted it. This is a super fun outdoor toy for any age range. I was pretty tempted to just run and jump however I decided I didnt need any hospital bills. Hahahaa
All the Mom's asked where we bought it!!
We've been using this a lot over the hot days we've had. Our Grandkids love it and so far it's held up good.
