Disclosure: I received the Slam 'n Curve Slide for review from Little Tikes. All opinions are my own.
Kenzie has been asking for a water slide for some time now so I was excited to surprise her with the Little Tikes Slam 'n Curve Slide. It is the perfect backyard inflatable for the summer that will keep your child(ren) entertained and screaming with glee.
The setup was fairly simple - take out of box, roll out on ground, plug in blower, place stakes into ground, velcro strap water tube to side and connect to hose, turn on blower and then water. It literally took about 10 minutes before the kids could start playing.
I love the clever design of this slide as it very kid friendly. The climbing wall is similar to the playground one and Kenzie was an expert in getting to the top of the slide where the water sprays out over the top to enhance the trip down. Since the spray is connected to the top of the slide with velcro, you can easily angle the direction of the water if your child is picky.
The curved slide is so much fun and once Mason got over the fear of sticking his feet in the climbing wall, he was non-stop on the slide and even passed up Kenzie to get in front of her! The wading pool feature is smart. It is like a mini-pool that your child(ren) can lounge in, practice surfing, sun bathe and even dance in. After coming back from a long vacation in FL with swimming in grandma's pool everyday, the kids definitely enjoyed swimming again back at home.
The inflatable basketball hoop and ball provide friendly competition with the kids. They can practice their shot and rebound and when the competition gets rough, go grab another ball for play. Kenzie and Mason didn't want the fun to stop even after a few hours but dinner was calling.
The breakdown took a bit more work than setup but wasn't difficult at all. Just turn off the blower, tilt out the water, blow back up and face towards sun to dry out and then roll up to store for another day of play. *Note that the blower needs to continuously be running while the slide is in use.
This is a durable water slide that several children can enjoy at once (maximum combined weight 350 lbs). It will definitely be wonderful for summer play dates as well.
