My son was quickly tiring of the kiddie slides I had that are like 6 inches of actual slide and 900 square feet of clunky plastic platform. I was happy about that and chucked it. But I needed something bigger for him and far less obtrusive for me.
This is a great addition to the backyard getup. We use it regularly but also use it for his little pool too and he slides down into it as I use a hose for the slide.
Mine came w a broken top handle part that is curved. It wasn’t staying snapped in and I realized that a small bit of plastic broke so it can’t click in sturdily. I was irritated but It hasn’t deterred us, he zips up and down it in seconds without it. The other one is on fine so I guess that’s enough for him.
It can get hot in the sun if it’s left outside. And it came be very sticky unless kids have on pants and socks. I hear my sons skin squeak down it constantly. So it’s a little annoying to always have to get socks for it but once it’s done he goes down it a hundred time.
Definitely definitely a great deal. Other slides are annoyingly expensive or attached to other things. This is such a good shape and simple. And it fits in the house or out. HVent folded it yet but it’s not “foldable” it is down-size-able by unsecuring the slide and storing the ladder in it. There are no hinges for it for fold. But it is absolutely able to be made smaller and stored easily.
