Sometimes summer can just be so... hot and boring. Kids are off of school, the temperatures rise and all anyone ends up wanting to do is lay around inside in the air conditioning. Although for us, that just leads to even more boredom, which causes one of my girls to pick on the other... and the day just doesn't end well.
However, if there is one place where I know to look for the most unique and fun items to truly celebrate summer (instead of just sitting around wasting it away), it's HearthSong. And if I didn't think things could get better after having reviewed their Great Big Outdoor Playball and their Cosmic Slide, that is only because I hadn't been given the opportunity to see just how much laughter and enjoyment their Super Water Slide can bring.
With a 12' long slide and a 3' x 5' pool at the end, within a matter of minutes of opening the box our yard was turned into an impromptu water park. In fact, inflating the Super Water Slide was a breeze, simply use a pump to fill up the outer chamber that encases the edging and then do the same for the inner chamber to provide a soft, cushy slide.
By simply filling the pool with water and then attaching a garden hose to this heavy-duty vinyl slide, not only do kids have a great padded surface to run and dive on, but the continual mist that sprays from along the side keeps it cool and slick. Or, as Little Sister B didn't quite grasp the concept of sliding, the spray made a perfect water tunnel for her to crawl through.
This is definitely not just your average slip 'n slide, the Super Water Slide made for a safe, enjoyable and extremely fun afternoon for all of us. The days of getting bumps and bruises from a single piece of cheap plastic laid on a hill are a thing of the past with a luxurious toy like this!
As with past items we have been fortunate to review from HearthSong, I was impressed with the quality, durability, ease of use and long-term entertainment that this was able to provide. After easily deflating the Super Water Slide, it can be conveniently stored and pulled out year after year with no problems or worries.
Considering just how much fun my kids (and, ahem, my husband) had on this slide, I have no doubt that it will be a permanent part of our summer fun.
Whether just for a few kids or as a feature at an outdoor party, the Super Water Slide is sure to be a big hit. Fitting perfectly into HearthSong's slogan of Toys You'll Feel Good About Giving, this is just one of many items that they offer as part of their commitment to providing educational, entertaining, high-quality playthings.
Also, as with all of their toys, HearthSong completely guarantees your satisfaction - with no conditions or time limits. If, at any time and for any reason, you aren't happy with your Super Water Slide, you can exchange it or receive a full refund. With customer service like that, you've got nothing to lose and only a large amount of laughter and good times to gain.
Also, thanks to the generosity of HearthSong, one person will get to bring home the joy and exuberance this amazing item will provide, because...
