Little Tikes Pirate Water Table
( Little Tikes $99 Score: )

We just received a terrific review of this outdoor toy. It's like a water table with a theme that is bound to appeal to kids who like playing pirates. Before we get to the raves, let us say up front, you need a power drill to put this together. Apparently, this was not a problem to our test family...their mom wrote: "Putting together the water table was a breeze! There are only 10 screws -  took me about 15 minutes total to put together (reading instructions included). The only part that was tough was the stopper. I couldn't get it through the hole. My husband had a hard time, but did get it through! My boys loved it! My three year old just kept saying "this is so cool!"  The fountain in the middle was a big hit! I also like that the pump automatically shuts off after a couple minutes--The button is very easy to operate on the pump! Both my 23 month old and 3 and half year old had no trouble with it! They loved all of the characters that came with it and enjoyed putting them in the boats and having them go down the slide. It has kept them entertained for about an hour straight each time, and they don't want to come in when it's time. It's a great toy for them to just explore and use their imaginations without any parent involvement. They enjoyed just standing there and doing their own thing. (Which is very nice!) It was also a good cause/effect lesson with the water fountain. My older child wanted to know what made the things spin on the sides. I always like the unexpected teachable moments! The only negative I had was the water gun part. The button was very hard to push for my kids. They don't yet have the motor skills to support it underneath with one finger and push the button with the other. They would just end up pushing on it and popping it out of place. Eventually, it just got ignored with all of the other fun things to play with on the table. Clean-up was very easy! Just pop the plug out and empty! Overall, this toy was a big hit at our house!" Sounds like a winner to us. 24 months & up.
