I have been wanting a water table for my kids for a while now and this was the best purchase! My little boys (ages 1, 3, and 5) play with it almost every day. It's easy to drain and they stay busy playing with all the pieces that come with it. They absolutely love it. The height is just right for my two youngest and even the 7 year old comes over and plays with no trouble. My only issue with the toy is that the cannon squirter doesn't always squirt and the kids get frustrated. Otherwise it's perfect and deserves a 5 star review even with the minor cannon issue! I bought a cover for it at night to keep the bugs out. The middle piece with the pirate flag comes off easily and lays flat for storage so that the cover can go right over it at night. Great buy! worth the investment in my book.
