**We are bumping this post in case you missed this hot item last year. It is now $0.02 cheaper, which is not much, but still a great deal!**
Pick up this Step 2 Shady Oasis Sand & Water Play Table at Toys R Us Canada this week for just $49.97 (reg $99).
This Sand & Water Table is a great addition to your backyard, no matter the size. It offers a wide range of possibilities for your child: don't let the product name hold you back. I was personally never a big fan of putting water on one half and sand on the other...mud pies are inevitable when you put both of those elements in such close proximity. Don't get me wrong, mud pies are fun, but there is a time and a place.
Some alternative combinations for this table are: water on both sides, sand on both sides, water with an abundance of bubbles, a variety of rice on one side and dried legumes on the other....that's right, you heard me. These are both cool textures for kids to explore (you can even dye the rice different colours with food colouring). I have even made a whack of Goop for the kids to explore with this table.
In the winter I have brought this table inside for play; it really is versatile if you think outside the box. For outdoor play, I really like the umbrella that is included for both practical reasons and the cuteness factor. You can find plenty of reviews on this product like this one:
I have three children and they all really enjoy this toy. It's fun play for hours, especially on a hot day :)
Since this item is over $25, shipping will be free!
