Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cara 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.

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 5Â by Kerry 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.

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.
