I really wanted to love it
June 24, 2016
I really wanted to love it, the idea is so super cute and my daughter loves it. However after the 1st two uses the drain plug started popping out every time i filled it with water. I would plug it and then it would just pop out repeatedly. I called Little Tikes and they said they'd send another plug. I went outside to move the table to store it until the new plug came and the table was heavy...filled with water on the inside of the ship! (Inside where it's supposed to be hollow.) I sent an e-mail to Little Tikes and they walked me thru the process of receiving a replacement, they responded very quickly and they were very helpful. I was super upset bc this was my daughter's 2nd b-day gift and i really wanted her to have it to play with for her b-day party. Little Tikes was great and offered to speed up the shipping so we would have it in time. We did get it in time for her party so that was great. However after the 1st use, the replacement water table is still filling up with water on the inside of the ship again! Ugh! It will be filled with gross mold in no time & i'm not sure what to do with it at this point. This isn't one of the cheaper water tables so i really expected a high quality table that would last a long time. My other complaint is the water canon that's supposed to spray water doesn't function properly. Every time you push down on the canon to squirt the water out, the entire canon pops out of place. Also, my 2 yr old is constantly pulling off the spinners from the center of the water table. They shouldn't pop of so easily that a 2yr old can remove them. I had these same issues with both water tables that i recieved. I also don't like that the little people have holes in them allowing water to get in. All this does, is allow water to get inside of them so they can collect mold & they aren't even squirt toys so the holes serve no purpose.
I love the idea of it and all the things there are too play with, I love how big it is so multiple children can play at the same time. If it didn't fill up with water on the inside that I can't get out, I would give it 5 stars in a heartbeat. I'm really disappointed.
*Update: I've attached a photo of the nasty mold inside...🤢
