      Comments about Step2 Play & Shade Pool:

      Although I bought the pool for my 9 month old daughter, my 7 year old niece was able to fit in it with her and played along. They both enjoyed the water wheel activity and it kept them engaged. It's not meant for older kids, but it is durable enough for my niece to sit in while she played with her cousin.

      I bought the pool in part because I was looking for a pool that was healthy for my baby to swim in (non vinyl). I was willing to pay more and I think the water activity and umbrella make the price worth it.

            My daughter loves this pool, my only wish is that the cups on the umbrella didn't move so easily with the wind. Not a huge problem or anything, just something I thought could be improved on. Overall my daughter loves it and cries when it is time to go in.

            Comments about Step2 Play & Shade Pool:

            Bought this pool for my daughter as she is very fair skinned so I liked the attached umbrella/toy feature of this pool. I don't like that the toys keep rotating around the umbrella pole, it's hard for her to use the cups/waterwheel when those toys don't stay aligned. I also wish this pool had a drain as I'm pregnant and it's a pain trying to flip this pool to drain it. But it is a nice pool, much better than an inflatable.

            Marilyn H. S: I bought this a while ago for my Granddaughter.I do not remember if it had a drain or not.But you can always use the hose to get the water out & have it drain where you want in your yard.Place you hose in pool turn on the water give it a few minutes then disconnect from the spickit & place on ground it pulls the water out of the pool.

            Marilyn H. S: I do not have the answer why you can not find it anywhere but a lot of stores only keep a certain amount of big items due to space ability.What I can tell you is my Granddaughter loved it.It was the perfect size not to small & not to big.With the toy on the side & the canopy she was able to have fun even by herself in the pool & was shaded from the sun.
