Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dive into a good book! 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 :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pool but...there's no drain :*( I LOVE this pool, first of all. It's great. My daughter absolutely loves it. Can fit probably 2 or 3 toddlers in it.The umbrella is awesome, and the toys are super awesome. But. The reason I am writing this is, I came back to this website hoping there had been a change to this model, and sadly there hasn't. There is no drain in the pool. For many of you this isn't a biggie. For me, it is. I bought this pool 2 yrs ago. So its held up great, but I have a terrible back injury, so trying to dump a heavy pool full of water, even a smaller pool such as this one, is really hard on me. Ive tried using pitchers and buckets...that takes forever. So, I'm writing this as a last ditch effort to beg the makers of the Step2 Splash and Play pool to add a drain. Pretty please. I'm about to have to buy a new pool because I can no longer dump it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect with or without water! This relatively small pool was purchased for my granddaughter's 1st birthday. It is already set up even though it's too cool yet in the Pacific Northwest to put water in it. The little seat beside the cups is just right for her and I know her mama will appreciate the sun protection (when it finally comes out). With no water in it, she is fascinated with the no-slip designs on the bottom. While she will really enjoy playing with the cups when there is water in the pool, it is already a hit with her. It keeps her toys (somewhat) contained on the deck and is a clean space for her to play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pool--worth the extra money! 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LITTLE POOL This pool is very sturdy. I bought it for my 2 year old granddaughter and I like that I can change out the water when it gets dirty without wasting gallons of water. I also love that it is small enough to put into the back of my SUV and take to other homes for parties and cookouts. I have done this twice so far and it has been a big hit with my grandchild's friends. This pool is big enough for two small children. My grandchild is two years old and loves this pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Perfect for my son on a hot summer day! We are completely happy with this product. I know the recommended age is 2+ years. Our son is 9 months old. We just put a few inches of water into the pool and let him play in it. He absolutely loves it. Of course, we are right there with him always to make sure he is safe in the water. The umbrella is great to shade him from the sun. I thought it was a little bit pricey, but I'm very happy with the product design and quality. It is the whole package including the umbrella and water toys. It is sturdy and will be able to be used for multiple years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Pool My 11 month daughter loves this pool. The only thing that would make it even better would be if it had a drain plug to make emptying it easier.
