On the day these toys arrived, McKenna decided she didn't want to swim with her teacher. We told her she could only play with the new toys if she swam for her teacher (bribery, yes, but we were okay with it). Well, she didn't swim with her teacher. She refused. So no pool toys. My husband spent some time with her getting her vamped up for it, and she went to her teacher, and she then enjoyed playing with the toys. I was so glad we had these toys as motivation for her to face her fear and swim with her teacher!
All three kids had a lot of fun with these toys. It has me looking over their other toys to see what else would be fun for us (I am sure Brayden would love an item that shoots water...).
The toys we tried were:
Both great fun! Of the two, I would say the Pooligans is the bigger hit. I might even get another one of those (in a different character).
Pool toys are a great thing for your kids to have while they play around in the water. It helps them relax and just have fun instead of focusing on being scared.
