Little Tikes Island Adventure Water Table Review

As a little kid I remember looking forward to spring/summer with so much anticipation. It meant that we got to play outside and run around in the sprinklers. Ever since Monkey was a tiny little man he has LOVED anything that has to do with water.  Taking baths, playing with water in the sink, swimming in the pool, and most of all playing outside with water toys.  When I was contacted by CSN Stores about doing a review I was so excited to be able to try out some sort of outdoor toy with my Monkey Man.  It took me a while to decide what I wanted to review because they have SO many different options to choose from. We decided on the Little Tikes Island Adventure Water Table.  

The minute our new toy was delivered to the door Monkey was dying to try it out and "help" me put it together. After we got all of the pieces out the table itself was put together in a minute max.....putting the tubes in for the water to run through took a little bit longer, but it was all put together within 10 minutes and ready to play. I think that I could have had it put together in less than 5 minutes if I didn't have a little man climbing all over it and trying to help me put it together. But I don't mind at all......his "help" was greatly appreciated

The Island Adventure Water Table comes with a boat, car, bridge and water tower for endless hours of fun. There are even winding roads to drive the car on, three bellows for spraying water, moats, and plenty of fun to be had. The bellows provide plenty of water action and the boat, car, bridge and water tower add to the fun. 

Monkey absolutely LOVES his new water table!! The first time that we went out to play with it he was completely soaking wet from head to toe and had more fun than I ever imagined.  It took him a few minutes to figure out how to spray water out of the bellows, but he soon figured out that those fun little buttons on each side spray water everywhere and after that he was in water heaven. 

Two things that I did notice that didnt work as well as hoped were:
- The bellows that are under the drawbridge don't work very well. The water intake for it is placed above where the water normally is so you have to manually put the water in that one.  It is easy enough to just push down the button and pour water over the hole while you are letting up on the bellows button. It would just be nice if it could be redesigned a little bit to where that one works better.
- Also two of the legs dont stay on very well. They are made to where they are supposed to snap in but two of them dont and they fall off when you are trying to move it. It is a little complicated trying to move a table that is full of water when a leg falls off........

Besides those two things we absolutely LOVE our water table. Every time that monkey goes out front he has to play with his water table and drive the car around all of the roads. He has such a blast with it.....I love to hear his squeals of utter delight and see the twinkle in his eyes when he hits the water with his hands and it flies everywhere. It brings him such joy and he could play on his water table for hours on end!!  I can't wait to be able to use it all summer to play and cool off outside. I see many many hours ahead spent outside with our water table.
