My son was thrilled when we found this slip-n-slide at our local Costco last week. He ran up to my husband practically shouting, "Daddy! Look! We gotta get this! Our old one ripped, right? Plus, its super hot out, right dad?!?" We had to laugh...he was so animated, even total strangers found it cute. We've had various slip-n-slides over the years. Our favorites have three lanes, a splash pool of some kind at the end, and inflatable "rafts" to use while sliding. This particular one is great fun, as the splash pool at the end is more substantial than some we've had. It seems more durable too. That's the one thing about this kind of toy-with all the use, they eventually rip. We generally go through 2-3 in a year (we use them from Spring through Fall). My solution is to use Duck Tape to fix them (put the tape on the bottom after it dries), but that only works so many times before it just has to be replaced. We've already used it twice and the kids are loving it. Plus, it was really reasonably priced (gotta love Costco!). I plan to pick up an extra one next week and store it away. Slip-n-slides support BODYsmart, PEOPLEsmart, and NATUREsmart. Have fun!
