We busted out the slip and slide a week or so ago when the weather was in the 90s and the pools were already closed for the year. I bought this on clearance one year and never got it out. The girls loved it, but the boys didn't really play on it. Isaac thought it hurt his tummy too much. Drew couldn't get going on it and really didn't love that the water was spraying all over him. Weirdos! The boys played with the water they collected from the sprinklers while the girls perfected their slides.
