For the last week or so, my children have been playing in a puddle of mud they made themselves in the back yard. While they are more than happy to crawl around like a bunch of swamp animals, I was not very thrilled with the prospect of cleaning them up or sacrificing my carpets everyday.
Yesterday I went to the store and purchased the older boys a large above ground pool, but my youngest one wanted a small pool with a slide. That is what brings us to my current review of the Banzai Slide ‘N Splash Alligator Pool. While it was not the cheapest option available, it was a good value for what it included and above all else, it made my son happy.
The Banzai Alligator Pool has two slides and a round inflatable pool. It is the perfect size for my four-year-old and would be equally good for children younger than that. The two slides are tied down to the bottom of the pool with the included ropes, which is a nice safety feature that keeps me from being concerned about him slipping and getting hurt.
Did I mention how adorable this pool is? Also, since the big pool was not ready today, my 10 and 8 year old sons are now enjoying splashing around in the kiddie pool as well, so apparently it is atteractive to older children in a pinch. The slides are inflatable, but are very durable as my two oldest chidldren had to lie on top of them so that I could secure the ropes without the slide slipping around.
Overall, I am very impressed with this purchase and the company has a sprinkler ball that attches to your hose, which I am dieing to try out in the future as well. I paid $35 for this pool last night at Walmart, but if you would like to purchase this pool for your little cutie, I was able to find it for only $23.99 with free shipping at Toys R Us.
