Waterpark Arcade and Car Wash Splash Center | Source: Step2

Summertime is prime for outdoor play! One problem, though: The heat catches up to kids quickly.

The best way to stave off the sizzle is with some splash-tastic action! Step2 is offering sensory water playsets that will keep toddlers cool, collected, and cognitively guided through the summer.

The Step2 Waterpark Arcade features aim-and-fire competitive fun for kids ages 3 and up. Tiny targets — such as knock-down cups, spinning paddles, and a pinwheel — are set up within the arcade wall for kids to knock down with a water blaster. Kids must hit the center bullseye to fill up the spill bucket below and whoever makes the bucket spill into the basin below first wins! Priced at $49.99, this set features a water blaster with an included hose attachment to shoot the water through.

For kids ages 2 and up who miss having a roar-some time at the beach, the Step2 Dino Dig Sand & Water Table will help them “seas” the day! This 27-by-32-inch, two-sided play table comes with a double-sided rake and shovel to dig to the bottom of the sand and find dinosaur bones and footprints. Kids can use the large cup to scoop and pour water into the top of the volcano or down the tall palm tree as it flows into the pool below. Priced at $74.99, this set also comes with a seven-piece, dinosaur-themed accessory set to add more layers of prehistoric fun.

The Step2 Car Wash Splash Center brings car wash magic to the backyard for kids ages 3 and up. Priced at $129.99, this 35-by-37-inch stationary car features a steering wheel, a windshield wiper, a pretend gas tank, a spray bottle, a rag, put-and-place maze pieces, and more. Kids can pour water into a double-sided top tray and watch the rainfall effect as water dribbles down the windshield and water maze at the back of the car or spray and wipe the clear screen at the front of the car.

All three sets are available now at Amazon, Walmart, and step2.com.
