The pool is really shallow, but fills up along the edge and sprays upward like a sprinkler. There is a slide, a dolphin to ride, a ring toss, a canopy area, a palm tree, and other areas that spray water upward. I think he really enjoyed playing in it!
The only bad thing is that you have to constantly run water through the hose to keep the pool filled up and spraying along the edges and in the middle. Remember when you were a kid playing in the hose and how extremely COLD the water was? Well, the poor little guy was just shivering and shivering when we first put him in there. Then after awhile, he finally adjusted to it. I think we're going to get a lot of fun days out of that pool this summer!
