The Little Tikes water table for children is a safe way for your child to play with water without having to go into a swimming pool. Children are fascinated by water and they love to get wet and splash around-just ask anyone who has the pleasure of bathing a child! Little Tikes water tables are an alternative to getting into the pool on a hot day.
Little Tikes water tables have drains that you simply unplug to let the water out. They are very durable and will last until your kids get too big to play with it!
Benefits of a Little Tikes Water Table for Children
Many children have a fear of water or pools. Water play permits a child to engage in the water without getting immersed in a pool.
For other children, especially those with sensory issues, playing in the water is calming. If you do not have a pool available, a Little Tikes water table can provide some kind of help with active water play.
My twins had a Little Tikes water table and they played with it for hours on hot summer days. They wore their bathing suits, splashed each other (and me), and played with their toys while keeping cool.
Even though there is a small amount of water, parental supervision is a must with any water play.
Unlike sand and water tables, water tables do not get as dirty as their counterparts. Sand and water do not make mud in a Little Tikes water table, unless your children dump dirt directly into it.
Water-only tables are also lighter when emptied and easier to move around. Working in the front yard? Bring it there. Working in the backyard? Bring it there! They are very portable.
Different Kinds of Little Tikes Water Tables
Little Tikes has two varieties of water tables-those with sand and those without. These are the water only Little Tikes water tables available:

Little Tikes Anchors Away Pirate Ship Water Table
Pirates and water play-the perfect combination!
