Beach Ball Sprinkler!

My son was too little for outdoor activities last summer, and even if he wasn't, we didn't have a yard in which to set up this bad boy. That's all about to change.


I already have this Little Tikes Beach Ball Sprinkler in my possession and I'm thinking it's going to take me all of fifteen minutes after moving into a house with a yard to install and begin the romping.

I love sprinklers. When I was a kid I mostly lived on a farm where sprinklers were also quite scarce. Clearly it's a suburban thing, and having never had the suburban experience myself or for my children, this is about as exotic a toy I've ever seen.

The Little Tikes Beach Ball Sprinkler is mobile! You can plug the hose in, turn it on and throw it around to the swimsuit clad hanging out in your backyard just waiting for some refreshment. Look at how happy those kids are!

And if mom needs to assist the one-year-old who's also never seen such a wonder, well, mom knows how to put on a one-piece too.
