I have a 10 year old and a 2 year old now I talked about getting this my 10-year-old wasn't super excited about it but then when she saw it and I filled it up she loves it and played with it for a good hour the first day we got it and my 2-year-old when she got home and saw it was so excited. I love that it covers the whole thing I don't know why this isn't a thing for all water tables and sand tables there should be a complete cover so that when Mom say no you can't play with it right now that there's a top also when it goes outside you don't want animals getting into it and cats peeing in the sand and stuff so it's really important that it has a cover plus it's easier to keep the water cleaner. We like to do a lot of sensory Play we like to do slime orbeez playing shaving cream bubbly water we want to try kinetic sand oobleck we just do a lot of sensory stuff in the buckets were great but they made such a huge mess when I used the buckets plus it's hard to find a place to store all those buckets. this is absolutely perfect it doesn't really show it in the picture but there's a little bit of a slope around the sides with a tiny little bit of an edge and it makes a whole lot less of a mess! When I was using buckets on the floor and played with orbeez there was literally orbeez everywhere within minutes but my girls happily played with this with a mat underneath it for a while and of course they don't try and be careful either and there were some orbeez on the floor but nothing like before. I literally have no complaints about this water table I'm very happy with it I'm very glad that we got it and that I chose this one. also love that it has two slots right now we currently have one slot filled with orbeez in another slot filled with water. if I had to complain about something the only thing I would complain about is the little bridge that goes on it is made to be moved easily so that if kids didn't want to play with it they didn't have to but the problem is that when they do want to play with it it just falls off so easily that it's almost impossible to play with and that was frustrating my 2-year-old quite a bit so she just uses it as a slide now thanks to her big sissy who came up with the idea. And also I can't stand it when you go to put something together and find out there's no pre-drilled holes I'm one of those people that can't stand putting furniture together or any of thing of the sort and I just can't stand it when they do not pre-drill holes LOL like I bought this water table I did not buy a Dyi project 😩🤦😅
But still absolutely love it I have it in my kitchen with an absorbent mat underneath it. every couple of weeks I plan on putting a new sensory thing in there and I love that the cap is on and that the cover has it there so that the times that I'm cleaning and we're all done playing they can't get into it when I'm not looking LOL. It's not just placed on top it has little loops that tightly go around these two soft knobs that stick out of the sides so that it sticks on tight. Easy for an adult to take off but would be challenging for a little kid to take off. I can't even decide if I want to put this outside in the summertime or not because it's so great having it right there in the kitchen so that I can cook two laundry clean dishes will they have something to do without making a giant enormous mess! well depending on what's in it lol they might get a little messy themselves but at least it's not all over the floor and everywhere 😅😅 and ask for fun well obviously it's fun cuz even my 10-year-old didn't think it would be fun but yet she's loving it! Of course she has to sit on her knees or sit on a chair to play with it but she doesn't seem to mind it beats sitting completely on the floor to play in a bucket.
