I was very excited to get this out of the box and get my 2 year old and 6 month old outside to splash around, however upon hooking up the hose we saw a leak, then another leak, then another leak, and finally the entire side of the thing just let go. My husband went to the hardware store and got the "as seen on tv" spray to seal the edges so that the kids could play. Not worth the 15$, since it is reinforced all around with black rubber spray. Very poor quality. Its a shame, because it is very cute, and I liked the idea of it .
