Angel got a Slip 'n Slide for her birthday and is in LOVE. In fact, she asks to play with it ALL the time. Here's a slow-mo play-by-play of her sliding (sorry they're a bit blurry - these are purely documentary!!) ...
Lovebug watched her for awhile trying to figure out whether he liked it or not. LOL.
These goggles are what Angel picked out for her thing to buy at the beach - both the kids got to "buy" one thing while we were in the store. And actually, it's because of the goggles that DH took Angel to the pool (she wanted to test them out) on our last day at the beach that ultimately resulted in the super-nasty fall (which you can still see the effects of - poor kid!). One of her front teeth got knocked a little loose, so we've been basically mincing her food and are being really careful.
Lovebug ultimately decided this was the best use for the Slip 'n Slide .... and why not?! LOL. This kid cracks me up!
DH and I are in agreement that the following image is totally bribery material - we're definitely pulling this one out the first time Angel brings a boyfriend home :-)
They had a blast with this thing - we were outside for over an hour watching them.
I don't know what's best about this last one ... Lovebug doing something other than drinking the water or Angel jumping for joy in the background. LOL. It's a shame I didn't get her whole body in this one!
So in conclusion, I would most definitely recommend this toy to parents! It's cheap and will provide HOURS of fun. It doesn't have the best reviews online but it sure made these kiddos happy!
