Looking for a summer toy that keeps kids busy? No really, this toy is a kiddie time sucker. I got the AquaPlay Portable AquaLand for my boys to play with outside in the summer. I stay home with my kids and they are always in need of something to do in the summertime to keep them from destroying the house or annoying with one another. I was browsing one day for some summer toys and I came across the Aqua Play Land and I knew it would be an instant hit. Even I wanted to play with this thing. Every kids that sees it, immediately wants to come over and play with it.
Our Favorite Kids Water Toy for Summer
The AquaPlay Aqua Land is a water tabletop but with a whole little mini adventure scene inside. When I say water tabletop, that’s because it’s not like the traditional water tables, it’s portable. It doesn’t have legs like a table, it’s the water play center only and you have to put it on top of something. We put ours outside on the back patio (it’s concrete) but sometimes the boys move it to the grass or other areas, we’ve even take it to the beach. That’s the best thing about it being portable, it can go anywhere.
The AquaLand is Portable!
What is really cool about this little water land is that it folds up and all the pieces can be stored inside. When it’s folded up, there’s a handle that you can carry it with. Very convenient indeed! We take it with us to the beach and to my moms house. Sometimes I just want to hang out and chat with my friends and family, so I bring this along to keep my boys entertained while I enjoy the company of adults for a change. That’s what makes it so awesome that it’s portable! Entertainment goes with us! I think that’s what makes this such a unique water toy for summer, most water activities are stationary, but the AquaPlay 512 Portable AquaLand can go with you anywhere you want to take it.
Best Water Activity Set for Summer! No Exaggerating!
The AquaPlay Portable AquaLand has a lot of stuff to do inside and it’s perfect for my two boys, they can share it and there is plenty of fun for both of them. Inside this little city, which is more like a construction site but with water ways instead of roads. There is a crane, a barge, a paddle-wheel, 2 water gates, 2 ramps and 2 car lifts. There is a boat and a vehicle that fit perfectly through the different water ways and up the ramps.
The parts inside the Aqua Playland all move; the crane has a large bucket attached and you can move it from side to side. The water games move so that the vehicle or boat can pass through. There’s really a lot to keep kids busy. It’s not just for boys, I did buy it for my boys but girls do like it too. My son’s best friend is a girl and she comes over and dives right into the action, it doesn’t bother her one bit that it’s a construction site. Pretty much anyone who sees this thing, wants to know where I got it because it’s the coolest summer toy.
There are Bigger, Better AquaPlay Playsets
If you want more AquaPlay action there are bigger sets available (which I didn’t even know at the time I bought mine). I am definitely going to get one of the larger AquaPlay sets and let you know what we think, but just based off our experience with the portable one, I know we will love the larger play sets.
