          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.

            Comments about Step2 Play & Shade Pool:

            I teach kindergarten and first grade literacy. I bought this pool for a classroom library center. I filled it with books and made a sign that says "dive into a good book." I teach at a year round school and I thought it would be perfect for the summer. It's the perfect size and the kids are loving sitting in their little beach chairs around the pool. They especially love the umbrella and sitting in the "shade". I think I'll change up the center eventually. I picture kids fishing for words or searching for hidden letters in the sand. The possibilities are endless! I'm so happy with this purchase. I knew the flimsy cheep pools would not have held up in a classroom setting. This one is nice and strong :)
