My gands, as I call them, just loved having this last year. The fun they can have in any water type thing is amazing. They do everything in the sun all summer long. My son has a pool that is a good and deep one but he put locks on the gate at the top of the deck to be sure they wouldn't get in without them. They spent a lot of time making them crazy for the first part of summer. Then they saw this and knew it was an answer to the one biggest issue in the house. This could be safe for them to play in along with a couple of other water things and all was well. They knew there was no swimming until dad got home and actually they accepted it. They were able to play in water all day and after dinner and on weekends they could play at diving off of dad's shoulders and as they say, all was well with the world, or their's anyway. This is a nice size and not too deep to feel afraid about and they looked forward to that with all the cousins who lived nearby. This is a good product so please take a look and maybe check it out I recommend this a lot.
