This little tikes play center is a different twist on little tikes toys. It is blow up and can be used for 3 different things. I bought this when my son was 6 months old and we used it up until he was about 3 1/2, he would still use it but I thought it was getting a bit small for him to use as a ball pit and he was getting quite reckless with it, running from afar and diving in!
We loved this though, we did use it as a sandbox because we already had one. When he was a baby we used it as a pool and it was perfect size, not too big so it didn't take long to fill or the water to warm up, he could support himself on the side easily. After that in the colder months we used it as a ball pit. It only comes with 10 balls, so an extra 100 will have to be bought in order to use it. That is the only downfall and it says this on the box, but doesn't make it clear!
I was afraid since it was just cheap blow up build that it would get a hole or something but nothing like that ever happened and with all the kids that used it and their roughness I am very happy with the construction of it. They did provide a repair patch just in case it was needed.
We loved this and I would buy it again!
