Wham-O Presents: Slip 'N Slide's 50TH ANNIVERSARY!
This year 2011 marks Slip 'N Slide's 50th Anniversary! Slip ‘N Slide® was invented by an upholsterer (go figure!) named Robert Carrier but was released by Wham-O in 1961. Once Slip 'N Slide was released it became instantly popular and lead to many imitators. So how do YOU know you have the real thing? "If it’s not yellow – it’s not a Slip ‘N Slide!"
Wham-O has been making playful, fun, and sporty products for over 60 years! Wham-O manufactures some of the most recognizable consumer brands in the world today, from classics like Frisbee® discs, Slip ’N Slide® water slides, and Hula Hoop® toy hoops, to outdoor brands like Morey®, Boogie® body boards, Snow Boogie® sleds, and BZ® Pro Boards.
I received the Wham-O Slip N Slide Rainforest Falls Pool and Slide to review!
*A Giant 72" x 56" inch splash pool!
*Inflatable slide for splashing into the pool
*Inflatable Rain Forest water fall for great splashing fun
What We Think:
It's awesome! My 20 month old daughter adores it! Luckly we're here in North Carolina so it's been pretty hot lately and we were able to set it up and try it out. I was actually surprised at how big it is, it's 72" x 56" and pretty darn big! I also like the rectangle shape, differnt then the normal circle. I love that if she falls it's all inflateable so she won't get hurt. The slide looks so fun,it even comes with ropes to tie the slide down to keep it from floating. I love the cute design too, gives a great rainforest feel! Super easy to blow up and hook up, it took my husband maybe 5 minutes to blow it up with his air pump and then the hose nozel just hooks right up to make the waterfall! She was a little scared at first to go down the slide (like most 20 months old would be) but she really enjoyed splashing Mama! I love it, I can sit outside and relax while she plays in the pool!
