Water, toys, and lots of cool fun for this summer!
Summer fun comes in a variety of sizes and colors, but most of all, fun always comes in water toys!
Summer is just around the corner and the kids will, once again, be home on vacation! What better ways to spend their time than to engage them in outdoor physical activities that burn energy, provide fresh air and pure vitamin D sunshine, and provide hours of just plain old fashion fun! What can compare to the fun kids experience when they are engaged in activities that take place in the water with their friends and their favorite water toys? Summer fun in the water is as old as the hills and as new as the June flowers. Capture the childhood magic and excitement of each new summer with the fun that never grows old! These great water toys provide hours of old fashion fun and summer childhood memories that last for a lifetime.
Our three adult children have blessed us with ten grandchildren. We bought one of these enormous water slides for them last summer. We could not have imagined the fun that was in store for children and adults alike. It became a Friday ritual for our family that not one of us was willing to miss. We all, young and old, found ourselves waiting in anticipation for the fun, food, laughter, and the camaraderie we experienced every Friday afternoon as the screams of child delight filled the summer air in our backyard. At the end of the day, the children were dressed in pajamas before loaded up to head for home. Our children were always happy to announce that, "The kids were asleep before we reached the stop sign at the corner." Talk about fun! It went non-stop and brought back the real carefree dog days of summer for all! As we look forward and prepare for our own (soon to be here) Friday summer water fun, we invite you to prepare for yours!
Recapture the joy and magic of summer for your children as we have. Summer is calling, and one of these magical water slides is just waiting for your kids!
Thank you Team Squidoo for Lens of the Day Honors! July 1, 2008
2008 - Our Newest Water Toy has its debut at Hillbilly Heaven!
WOW! Check this out if you have any kids!
We started our summer 2008 Friday ritual of having all the grand kids and friends over for all the fun they can handle! You should have been here to see the looks on these children's faces when they saw the new water slide for the first time! Words can't explain the joy and excitement on their faces, so I will just have to show you. Come take a look!
Summer 2008 begins with a big splash at our house with our brand new water slide! Let the fun begin!!!
The front view of our new water toy as we were setting it up.
This thing is huge! Here is the side view of our new water toy!
The right water slide is curved and partly covered at the bottom
The left water slide is a straight drop and fast!
Now I ask you; are these children having fun or are they!
This is the back where the children climb up to slide one way or the other
They started at 11 am and their moms had to drag them out by the toes at 8 pm
The Solomon always has to check out the new additions to the yard
He thinks that he looks better than the pool so he just has to show off!
Now you need some toys to play in the water with!
From the ManufacturerGet ready to play some volleyball this summer with the Super Size Volleyball set. The set includes a 6 net and features a no-tip design for hours of refreshing fun. The included 18 inflatable volleyball floats for easy retrieval.

Product Features * 14ft inflatable sliding ramp and splash pool. * Quick and easy garden hose hookup * Durable heavy duty PVC Construction * Ultimate water slide like no other * Easily inflates in minutes 5.0 out of 5 stars What a great time!, July 4, 2006We bought the Splash Bomb Water Slide locally last Spring. The 7 year old and 14 year old had such a great time with it, we kind of splurged and got 3 slip `n slides to replace it when it finally tore after about 10 hours of hard use.The first one we put up was the Aqua Leisure Spray and Slide Family Pool. The design looked great, and if it could have only held air, it might have been really fun. But the air plugs wouldn't hold and we were forever adding air to all the bladders, and it tore quickly. Nice design, horrible fabrication.Shark's Revenge Water Slide was our next slide to assemble. The slide is long, but didn't have the comfort advantage of an inflated slide. Plus, it had this odd shark head part that 1) had an odd sized port for adding water, and 2) wasn't stable enough to stand up so the kids could slide through it. Bottom line was that while it looked fun in the pics, it wasn't worth the money for just a long piece of vinyl.Our third replacement took us back to the Splash Bomb, and it was the hit of the birthday party last weekend for the now-8-year-old. We had kids from 3 to 30 jumping in and loving it. And it was sturdy enough to go through that without getting torn. Splash Bomb gets my heartiest endorsement.

Hello Folks, As I anticipate the arrival of summer with my ten grandchildren who love to play in the water, I just had to make a lens on these great water toys. We bought one last summer and the kids went wild over it! They would play in from the time they got here until their mothers would be forced to yank them out to go home! Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think about this lens and its products.
