Love the pool. The umbrella works perfectly to shade our 15 month old grandson and the pool is very sturdy. The inside of the pool is skid proof so no worry of slipping in it, plus it has 2 molded seats. The step2 pool was out of stock when I ordered it, but Rural King was great to inform me when it would be back in stock. This was my first time ordering from Rural King and definitely won't be the last.
I loved the step2 pool, after having one for years, now my daughter has children on her own and wanted to buy one and can’t find one anywhere. There is nothing that has been produced for children that has been as durable nor safe. Ours has been around for years, I have 4 adult children with kids of their own that would love to own one. I don’t understand why something that could withstand years of action would be discontinued. (I thought 2 years ago mine was finished for sure we had someone drive in our back yard with a truck and he ran it over, let me tell you, it is still holding water without any issues. Please for the safety of the children and the wallet, bring this back.) Any family with young children would buy this.
