~I received an H2OGO! for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
We spend a ton of time outdoors in the summer and here in Florida it gets ridiculously hot! We are always looking for fun ways to cool off. I grew up playing on a water slide in my backyard and now with the H2OGO! the water slide is better than ever!
The H20GO! Backyard Water Slide is a water slide that features a speed ramp, an inflatable launch pad, that softens the initial plop and smoothly propels riders head-first into a fast ride down an 18-foot slide. The Splash Lagoon beneath the Speed Ramp funnels water throughout the entire slide, eliminating those slow spots as riders skim their way through a cascade of water towards the drench pool. This is literally the only water slide you will ever want to buy because that inflatable starter ramp is essential! I definitely remember how hard it was to slide without hurting myself as a child and with this ramp it is clearly so much easier, my daughter had absolutely no problem using it!
Providing two and three-times the amount of sliding summer fun, the H2OGO! water slides are available in a single, double and a triple model, allowing kids to compete against their friends for the title of neighborhood champion while keeping cool all summer long. My pictures are of the double and I personally would not go any smaller than that so kids have enough space on either side for sliding and so more can play at once. My daughter is age 6 for size comparison. I would say based on the size of the slide and my child that this would be a great toy for the 5-10 age range. Anything older than that and it may be a little short in length. Do not over-inflate or use high water pressure so that you do not rip the plastic!!! They are built for fun but definitely not built to last.
The tiny pool at the end is perfect for little sisters to play in and cool off too. Having this out in our yard definitely got our neighbors wanting to come over and play! At their low price you can throw them away at the end of the season and not worry about storing them. Even if it only lasts a few times it is cheaper than taking the family out for the day. I personally think these are definitely worth the price! They are available at Toys R’ US, Amazon.com, Target.com and Walmart.com. These would be great for parties, BBQs or just a family day in the backyard. This toy is literally fun for hours!
