The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are coming to an end, but the warmer weather feels like it’s here to stay. You can keep your toddler cool in the heat with this amazing water toy from MGA Entertainment’s Little Tikes brand.

Little Tikes Splash Beach is a must-have for any households with little ones ages 2 and up. Splash pads in general are phenomenal buys on their own: Multiple kids can play at once, cleanup is usually pretty simple when playtime is over, and they keep kids cool and entertained for hours with super simple play patterns. Little Tikes Splash Beach is no exception to this — but it does take all of those benefits to a new level.

Parents can unfold the splash beach and secure the slide and lighthouse, then kids are ready to play! It comes with other toys and accessories to keep the imaginative play going as kids splash — including little animal toys, scoopers, and more. Just fill up the pad and let the water fun begin!

Little ones can sit outside of the Splash Beach or right on the edge and play in the water scene. Parents can also hook up a hose to the splash pad for a sprinkler effect, but if you’re looking for a more simple playtime, that’s not necessary.

When kids are done playing, parents can fold the Splash Beach back up to store it in a smaller space (All of the stuff packs up inside!!) or just leave it in the backyard if you’ve got the room so it’s ready to play again the next day.

Trust me, your toddlers won’t be able to get enough of this splash pad. And with a simpler setup than a lot of full-blown, backyard water parks and toys that are designed for little hands, Splash Beach packs tons of fun into its $74.99 price point. It’s a summer staple you’ll pull out of storage every year for some fun in the sun!


Fill this plastic pad with water, and seat kids inside or around the edge. An adult can attach a hose to activate a built-in sprinkler, and there are multiple beach-themed accessories kids can use to interact with the water. The set also folds for easy storage.
