One of the best ways to keep little ones cool this summer (and entertained) is with a trip to the splash pad. But with social distancing still impacting many public splash pads and pools, bringing the fun to your own backyard is the next best thing.
For those on the lookout for a top-rated splash pad that provides hours of fun for children and pets, there's the Non-Slip Splash Pad Sprinkler from Vistop, which currently on sale on Amazon Canada for $30.
What is it?
Vistop's Splash Pad is designed specifically for toddlers and children to enjoy all the fun and activity of a public splash pad safely at home. The brand's portable 67-inch pad is made from a durable BPA PVC that can withstand the day-to-day use from children and pets, with a non-slip texturized surface that is supposed to help prevent slips and falls (although you'll want to make sure kids are supervised to ensure a fun, safe time).
The Non-Slip Splash Pad is easy to set up and connects to your garden hose using the provided O-ring, spray coupling and nose ring to provide an even water distribution for endless outdoor fun.
What people are saying
Vistop's splash pad is currently the top-rated splash pad for dogs on Amazon and boasts more than 1,800 reviews to check out before you make your purchase. With more than 1,000 five-star reviews, the durable backyard splash pad has been called a "phenomenal" way to keep cool in the summer.
One reviewer said the splash pad was "extremely sturdy material" and "very easy to set up" for their kids to enjoy.
Other shoppers have put the splash pad to their tests for their dogs to help beat the summer heat.
"So fun! The pad is very tough and durable," wrote one reviewer who said it stood up to their two 120-lb. Newfoundland dogs.
"Wish I would have bought this sooner," they continued, echoing that it's easy to set up and would be great for kids, too.
Despite the positive reviews, some shoppers have cautioned that the material can tear if your dog has long nails and steps on the outer-area of the splash pad. Even though the pad is texturized to help prevent slips, they can happen, making adult supervision a priority at all times.
"It says non-slip but my toddler slipped first step on the splash pad," one reviewer cautioned before saying that it's a "great purchase overall" and "very durable."
With summer temperatures continuing to rise, those of us without access to a pool may benefit from this portable and durable splash pad. Vistop's product would make a great addition to your summer activities and help keep kids (and pets) entertained. However, if you have a pet, this may be a no-go for you — and you'll also need to ensure that any kids are being supervised at all times to prevent slips.
