Spring started off extremely hot. When this did arrive in my store for pickup the heat decided to go away. But i opened it and set it up in my living room for now and put ball pit balls in it and my daughter loves it. Im sure she will love it even more with water. Its very durable and rugged. This will get many years of use without the worries of popping when she digs her nails into it. The price is high but the Umbrella to block my daughter from the sun since she is a red head like me, and durability make it worth it. Two little seats and toys that trickle water all the way down that click onto umbrella keeps my daughter occupied.
