How much fun would it be to let the toddlers blow off some house time to play in the water. If you’re anything like me, but I don’t enjoy taking my kid to community pools. They are often overcrowded and don’t feel safe. I would much rather enjoy spending some one on one time with my little guy in the back yard as we play in the water and keep cool.

  1. I am head over heals in love with that Fantasy Castle! I don’t have children of my own, but I have little nephews, and they love it when I read them fantasy books. (For Children of course) The price is really decent, and my sister-in-law would be relieved to have some time to herself while the kids (and I) play!
    Will certainly book mark this page for future reference.

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Darc’ie I’m so glad you like it. I think it’s a great find also and will be getting one for my son as well. He loves the water and i’m sure he will have a blast in this kiddie pool. Thanks for reading and sharing. Come back for more summer fun.

  2. Maddie says:

    This is great timing! I don’t have a toddler quite yet, but I do have a soon to be one year old and she will be walking within the next month I’m sure. These toys look so interactive and stimulating.

    The problem I have with my daughter’s toys is that they are too dull and boring for her. They don’t stimulate her enough and she gets bored easily. The castle is awesome because of the bright colors and the fact that you can jump and slide down it.

    I would love to get this for my daughter, she would go crazy over it. Thanks so much for posting this! Can’t wait to try it out!

    1. Hi Maddie, The Castle seems to be a favorite with moms and kids and I think your daughter will love it. Especially if she likes playing in water. (like my son) The price is affordable and when the summer is over you can move it inside and fill it with balls for added fun throughout the year. Thanks so much for reading and sharing. Make sure to come back I have some great finds for the summer coming out soon.

  3. I think this is very helpful for moms! I have cared for kids for years and sometimes it is hard to find different things to catch their attention! Awesome concept!

    1. Yes, my point exactly. It is hard and with these toys they have something to look forward to all summer. They are a great find. Thanks for reading.

  4. These are perfect and look like so much fun! I wish I had these when I was a kid! lol Great post. Bookmarking this and sending it off to my cousin for their little one 🙂

    1. Thanks Eric. I’m sure they will love it. Thanks for reading.

  5. I love the fantasy castle! I’d love to get it for myself. 🙂 And what I like about the Playtime patio is that it has shade. Although I do not have kids yet, I know plenty of people who do, and I will recommend these toys to them. My best friend has an active toddler, she’s lively and always on the move. I am sure that she will love this:-)
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Christine, I love the patio too, and I love that it’s enclosed. I’m going to be getting one for my toddler for the summer as well because he loves being outside and I can give him water to play with also. These toys are so great for kids and I know my kids would like them so why not share. Thanks for reading my post.

  6. Hi Jen,
    I absolutely love the Funphix construction toy. What an awesome idea!
    This toy is great for changing up ideas. The kids would never get bored. They could have a new play structure each day or so.
    I really like the water toy as well. Fun for hot days!!

    1. Hi Suzanne, I hear that a lot, the Funphix is a great toy for kids. I love the versatility of it and being able to use imagination to create construction that the kids could then play on. It’s a great combination toy in that sense. And the water toy is great and affordable for those summer days. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Viviana Munoz says:

    That fantasy castle though 🙂 I think I want one just to have in the house haha. I haven’t had a toddler in so long my kids are older now but I remember buying them lots of toys when they were little, the funphix looks so colorful too. These are some great recommendations for children thanks so much for sharing your expertise on this.

    1. Hi Viviana, Yes, my thoughts too which is why I created a post to other ones just like this one, you should check it out you would like the other pools too. They are so adorable. And the funphix seems to be a favorite as well. Thanks for checking us out.

  8. Amber says:

    Ok so first off, the Funphix construction toy set looks awesome. My 3 year old would love to build with it and my one year old would love to climb up whatever her sister builds! This is so cool, I had no idea there was anything out there like this. I was an avid puzzle builder when I was a kid but never had anything I could build that I could actually climb and crawl on. I will be looking back at this closer to my daughter’s birthday. Thanks for the great recommendation!

    1. Hi Amber, Everyone loves the Funphix construction toy. I think it is awesome for kids although they will need some help from mom or dad, But I think it’s a good way to spend time together and enjoy the outdoor weather. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.

  9. Oh my gosh, I love the playtime patio! My kids are all grown, but wonderful idea for the grand kids. I think they are going to enjoy visiting grandmas house with this great toy! I have not seen it before, so I am pretty excited. The price is really not too bad either! Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas.

    1. Hi Matts Mom, I love the patio as well. I really want one for my son, I think he will really enjoy it and when the summer is over we can move it into his play room with a fake grass mat. I think the kids will love this. There’s room for more that one toddler and they can play together and have a blast. Hope it works out. Come back and let me know.

  10. Babs says:

    My grandson’s birthday is coming up, and he doesn’t have a pool yet, so that castle is perfect. I love that the water shoots over it if you plug in the hose, and he is a big dinosaur/dragon loving kid, so that blow-up is sure to excite him. LOL! Great suggestions, and even better prices. Good picks!

    1. Hi Babs, Great news! This is such a great pool and will be awesome for you grandson this summer. I hope he likes it, please stop by and let me know how it goes. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Lauren says:

    That playtime patio looks amazing! My three year old loves to “cook” and would definitely enjoy playing in that outdoor kitchen. We don’t have any trees in our backyard and it gets HOT in the summer, so that fact this one comes with a canopy AND a discount for prime members… it’s definitely going on the wishlist!

    1. Hi Lauren, I love the patio, right?? It’s so nice for toddlers and we don’t have trees either so I like that I can put this outside and my son can play in the summer time. I’m thinking this would be the perfect birthday present for my little guy. I’m glad you like it, and yes, the discount is a win also. Thanks so reading.
