We purchased our water table two years ago, and this year when it came time to replace the table, I knew which one we were going to choose. The Little Tikes Anchors Away water table is the perfect choice for our small, pirate-loving toddler.
As a second child, there is very little that Violet needs, or doesn’t have so we decided to give her the new water table for her birthday. Well, she discovered it a little early, hidden away in the laundry room. We decided to bring it out, put it together and let her play with it before we stashed it outside later in the season. From the moment that we opened the Anchors Away water table, she was so excited. She climbed in, played with the pirate lookout and made the characters go up and down the slide.
Anchors Away Pirate Ship Water Table
The table came with an impressive amount of accessories, including a couple of pirates, a shark, a bucket and of course the fun water canon and lookout that is going to be fun to pour water down in the summer.
At almost two, she’s got room to grow into it. Olivia is going to be able to easily reach the tower and let the water cascade down, so she’s also going to be able to enjoy it (at four).
The Anchors Away water table has enough room for four kids to easily play around the table, and enough options for play to occupy them including a slide, the lookout, a water canon, plank, steering wheel and roundabouts that can be turned for additional play. Plus, it comes with characters. Add in a package of your favorite stacking cups and you’re going to be set for water play outside during the spring and summer months.
Tip: When it’s a bit colder out, I will fill the water table with hot(ish) water to keep those hands warm for early mornings or spring days where those fingers might get a little chilly. Or, just use it indoors.
When it comes time to drain the table, there’s the easy plug in the bottom to allow the water to drain below. The strong and durable design, the included accessories, and the fun that comes with the pirate ship table is well worth the $74.99 price tag (especially when it’s going to last a few years and multiple children).
