“ Brand: Chicco / Type: Water Toys „
The Chicco Ball Pool Set is a product I bought for my neighbours as they have small children and i thought it would make a nice gift for them as they have just recently moved in. It looks to have been a good move, as recently we have had some very nice weather even though it is only March. I paid around £25 for it online, and I have also seen it on the Amazon and Walmart websites, so you will be able to find it easily enough from online retailers. The ball pool comes complete with a hundred colourful plastic balls. My neighbours did inform me that they bought some more balls as when they inflated the ball pool and put the balls in it, they barely covered the bottom of the pool, so more were needed. Obviously for around £25 I didn't expect perfection, and to be honest there has been very little wrong with the product.
The only other points worth noting is that the pool is very small. Aimed at ages 1 to 4 years it is quite compact, and is sized at 13" x 35.5" x 35.5". The pool I bought is bright yellow, but maybe you can get them in other colours. The storage bag is a thick plastic bag with zips around it, allowing for easy access to the balls. The balls are stored in the bag, and this is useful having a well designed container for them as often they can have nowhere to go.
The instructions also suggest you can fill the ball pool up with water instead of the balls, but my neighbours havn't tried this yet. I think that the pool is a little bit flimsy for that, and I would strongly advise keeping an eye on your child if you decide to put water into it as accidents do happen. I can't imagine it taking much water, but you could put a few inches in it for children to splash about in I suppose.
The inflatable pool inflates quite quickly as it is small, and there are 2 inflatable rings which each have their own valve. Although my neighbours have only used the ball pool half a dozen times they havn't had any problems inflating it, and the pool is still in very good condition. With these kind of kids toys you find that they wear very quickly, and the ball pool appears to be hard-wearing. My neighbours do have a puncture repair kit, but any major rips wouldn't be easily repaired or even worthwhile. I think the Chicco Ball Pool Set is good value for money, and with the summer months ahead I can imagine them being very popular.
This is a faboulous toy, from ages 1. it consists of an inflatable Pvc pool, 100 plastic coloured balls, and a large pvc storage bag for the balls. The pool inflates quite quickly, although it is a little on the small side. I find this ideal for rainy days, as it can be set up in the house. The balls are a definate attraction for kids (big and little!). Unfortunatley, the balls get everywhere and can take a while to tidy away. Of course, you can also fill the pool with water. We also use the balls for other games too, such as learning colours and counting. You can even play a form of marbles with them!! This a great fun toy, which has multiple uses, and kids of all ages will love it.
Fill it with water in the summer and balls in the winter! This Chicco Ball Pool Set is great for any time of year. This inflatable swimming pool comes with colorful balls and a convenient storage bag.
