When summer rolls around, the water toys are hot commodities! They are easily sold out or on back order as many toy store start to discount their water toys and water tables. One of my favorites are the Step 2 Water Wheel Activity Play Table. We bought one of these and it is hours of fun for your little one.
The water table is light weight and easily fit in a small patio or backyard. You can fill it up with just water or I’ve even used it as a small sand table. Home Depot sells bags of play sand and we just use that and change it out when it gets too dirty.

Does the STEP 2 Water Wheel Activity Play Table have a down side?
I’ve had the table for 2 years now and for us there has not been a down side to the table. For some, they may want the sand or water table to be bigger. However, for us, I like the light weight and easy to clean aspect of the table. I’ve had a few children play with the table at the same time and it was big enough to keep all the children entertained for 2-3 hours at a time. If you are looking for a sturdy table, this one may not be for you. Don’t get me wrong, it’s safe and sturdy enough, but some other tables have a heavier build and larger.
OVERALL **** 4.5 Out Of 5 Stars ****
Most parents are extremely satisfied with the product. The biggest pro is the easy assembly, easy clean up and fun for the kids for a long time. The con for this product is that it doesn’t have a cover and the water wheel is easily pushed over because it’s not permanently attached to the table. I’ve been able to get over not having a lid to the table because I always empty the water out at the end of play time. Stale water or sand gets gross, so the best thing is to keep it empty when not in use.
Where to Buy STEP 2 Water Wheel Activity Play Table?
You can find this water table at Target, Toys R Us or on Amazon on line. There are always sales for this product, but I would pick up before summer hits. It’s currently only $39.97 on amazon, so make sure purchase before it runs out.
