“ Brand: ELC / Type: Water Toys „
It was my nephew's birthday I never know what to get him as he gets so much stuff, with the warm weather I decided a trip to the Early Learning Centre and I will get him some toys to use in the garden. I did not want anything too big that was easy to store away and realised there was a sale on so he ended up with quite a few bit as you will notice in the next few reviews.
One of the items he got was a water pump, it was in the sale reduced from £4 to £2 which I thought was quite reasonable, I thought he could use it in the paddling pool and in the colder months he could play with it at bath time, keeping him amused in the bath has always been a struggle without toys to play with.
The water pump is recommend for children age 3 years and above, the pump looks like a tap, the only difference is that you pull the handle to suck up the water and it then comes out of the tap like nozzle. It's it nice bright colours, the one we have comes in blue and green with a red pump handle, the tube is clear so you can see the pump and water moving.
Its helps to develop your child's hand and eye coordination as they have to hold the tap in place while pumping the handle, otherwise the water will not appear.
My nephew got to grips using this quite quickly while he was in the paddling pool and really enjoyed playing with it, he was filling up his watering can so that he could water the plants. He loved the clear water tube that it has as he could see the water moving through the pump.
You need to make sure that the pump has air my nephew was holding it right at the bottom of the paddling pool and the water was not pumping there needs to be a gap between the pump and the base of the paddling pool so that the water pump effectively.
For the £2 price tag this was definitely worth it, I think I would also pay the £4 if it wasn't on offer but I do not think it is worth anymore than that as after a while my nephew got bored with it, he does regularly play with it but not for hours at a time probably about 10-15 minutes
Squirt water out and have fun with this water pump.Warning! Not suitable for children under 36 months.
