Well, it has been a long time coming!
This week we finally saw some much needed sunshine and we have been able to open the doors to the garden and let the boys play freely.
We have been eagerly awaiting this day after taking delivery of the Little Tikes Fountain Factory a few weeks back and thankful it arrived last week.
Firstly, however we had to put it together which in honesty took about 15-20 minutes to do. It took us longer because we were trying to get it looking like the box when the images online are slightly different … and you know why? Because its meant to be that way.
The genius about this its designed to grow and so many of the tubes, pipes and connections are designed to be moved and changed by little fingers and clever kids!
Jacob being 2 was fine with how we set it up and was in love with it from the start. We obviously had a little meltdown with him when he poured water down himself while playing but again that is nothing unusual, after all this kids has a meltdown if the seam on his sock is slightly off kilter.
He loved all the different taps and how he could move the pipes. I was worried he wouldn’t be tall enough to pour water in the top as he is not that tall even for his 2 years but he can get water in the top so its great that he can use all the parts of the water table.
Joshua (age 7) has also had a play and I can see many more sunny days playing with this wonderful Little Tikes Fountain Factory Water Table with both boys. Which is going to be a key feature in our summer this year. Thankfully it has an easy empty plug in the base and we can lift it easily to follow the shade in the garden too.
Another quality toy from Little Tikes.
