With the extreme heat wave we’ve been experiencing (will we ever get relief?), we’re constantly on the lookout for ways to keep cool while having fun at the same time. I’ve been taking Emma to indoor places as we make our way through the summer. Museums, bookstores, and supermarkets are among the few options we have during the week. It seems like such a shame to be spending our summer confined to indoor spaces, though. So if there’s one essential item this summer, it’s the Super Water Slide from Hearthsong.
This is nothing like the water slide I grew up using on my parents’ lawn. As you can see in the above images, the slide itself is inflated to provide padding and protection. What were our parents thinking letting us slide down a hill on a thin sheet of plastic? The water slide has come a long way since those days. And speaking of long, the slide area itself is 12 whole feet in length!
At the end of the slide is a large pool offering a water-park quality splash at the end of a fun, slipper ride. Emma’s a bit young to slide, but she still had a blast playing with the water streams and splashing in the cool pool. This toy made for kids ages 4-15 and can accommodate the little ones too as you can see. I was very tempted to take a turn myself. :)
The Super Water Slide is an excellent way to cool down this summer. And let’s face it—when there’s water involved, the kids are game no matter what the temperature. Am I right?
Due to the generosity of Hearthsong, one VERY lucky reader will win the Super Water Slide and Dual Action Foot Pump!
