Water Table

Step2 WaterWheel Activity Play TableDuring my crazy toy spending spree a few weeks ago when the weather was really warm, I decided that LO's childhood would not be complete without an awesome water table.  I ordered some non slip mats for underneath it and we set it up yesterday on our back patio.   She was really into it and I think it is worth it.  I bought it from Kohl's for a little less than Amazon but it took a long time to receive.  I tried to decide between sand and water and I think I made the right decision as I hate sand.  If sand is anywhere in the vicinity, it will make its way permanently into my bed.

I filled the table with warm water and she was occupied for a good amount of time and outside in the sun in our minuscule back area that never gets used.  I have to agree with a lot of the other parents that it kind of sucks that the water tower is not more stationary as it is not attached at all and the boats don't float.  LO didn't seem to care and she just kept throwing the water tower out of the water.  Overall, I think it is a good toy for $30.
