Just purchased this table today to use inside with a cornmeal/vegetable oil mixture. My son loves it! Perfect indoor activity for him that I can easily fill with water and put outside on the deck in the spring/summer months. The little dinosaurs that come with it are adorable. Also, this table is more compact so it takes up less space then our Step2 Island Resort water table. Nice color scheme too.
My 10 month old couldn't be happier! Also great for holding sensory items. After play time with water was over I filled it with colored pasta which made lots of noise and was fun scooping. UPDATE: ONE OF MY BEST PURCHASES!
I am impressed with this water table. I like the simple design that is easy to clean, big enough for a few kids to play comfortably, and fun toys and tools included. The dinosaur toys are adorable and squirt water out of their mouths.
Installation was easy, most of the screws had pre-made holes. The table legs did not have a pre-made hole for the screw and you just create the hole on your own with a screwdriver.
Love, Love, Love this table. We only put sand in it for our Son and he just loves being able to stand and dig and dump and play with his little dinos. He has had many hours of fun playing with it and there are still more to come. The table itself is very easy to put together it took maybe 15 minutes tops. I'm not sure that I would have put the sand and the water together at least not for a 2 year old. He like putting the sand from one area to the next so it would have been quite messy that way. Its is a lot of fun tho.
I’m so pleased and happy I splurged on this water table. We’ve had cheap ones before, but they never last. I was surprised when I had to get a drill out to assemble it (you can use a screwdriver, but drill is much easier). Very sturdy and thick material. The toys included are good quality, the plug actually holds the water with zero leaks, and the attachments fit perfectly. Our son is a small 5 year old and can play with this comfortably. He usually likes to sit on his knees and play with it.
It took more assembly than I thought; but it's sturdier as a results and more easily stored if you take it apart. A lot of toys like this have snaps that are very difficult to disengage. I would like a drain in the sand side so it could be either drained or used with water. The sand and water immediately get mixed by the kids and draining the water from the sand side would be useful. You can use a bucket to catch some sand from draining the water side if necessary. It holds about 3 pounds of sand and I bought a 50 pound bag from Home Depot which is the only size they have of play sand... I'm considering mixing some with cornstarch to make kinetic sand.
Fun water/sand table with cute plastic dinosaurs to play with. It is light weight & a great size for moving convenience & storage. It has a cover for part of the table to cover the sand. Although you can also just put water in both sections if you don't want sand. It also has a plug to drain the water.. It was a good height for one year old & two year old grandchildren. Grandchildren are enjoying it so much that I ordered two! (Older children may want a larger & taller sand-water table, but I thought this one was a good size for toddlers.)
This is a great water table! Last summer we bought the Little Tikes Pirate Ship one and the water filled the legs on two models (design flaw). My 5.5 year old Loves using this although it is a bit short in height for him. It’s quality and has not faded with a few months of use. The Dino’s that come with it change color which is fun. I did dab hot glue in their holes so they wouldn’t collect water and mold. I bought the basic set as there were two options and it did come with the accessories in the picture.
Bought this for my 2 year old and I (as well as he) loved it. So cute and stood at the right heighth for him to use. I have sand in the larger side and water in the smaller - but during the winter I brought it inside and have small polished pebbles in it so that he can still use it. Very great quality!
