My daughter turned three a few weeks ago, so for her birthday we got her a wading pool. It looked really cute on the box, with a whale shaped slide and what appeared to be a decent sized wading pool. Well... First I will show you the box...



Looks cute, right?? Well... we pulled the pool out of the box and blew it up (a task in itself!!), and look at what we got!



Keep in mind my daughter JUST turned 3!!! It's not like she's too old to be playing in this pool!!
These things drive me nuts!! If I had known the pool was going to be this small, I would have spent my money on a different model!!
Horrible!!

ETA: There is NO WAY 4 kids could play in that pool!!

That is so sad, and funny at the same time. My 3 yr old just saw it, and all she is saying is that she wants one. That is obviously false advertising, and a photoshop job by the company. I would return it to where I got it, even if it is dripping, and write the company. Also, you can write your local paper, sometimes they run stories about things like that.

They did!! I really thought that was the size I could expect! The worst part is that they say this pool is not for children under 2. I think that's the only size that might actually have some fun in it!!

I doubt even two kids could really fit in it comfortably.

I hate those kind of ads, it makes me mad when they say it can fit X amount people in it and once you got it set up, it only fits 2 big people instead of six!!!! It was a blow up blue swimming pool.

Quote:The worst part of it... you look at those kids faces on the box and they look older. I would guess at least 4 if not 5. GRRRR!!
