Best for big imaginations

For an innovative, vertical water table that’s packed to the rafters with unique surprises that your kids will love, look no further than Magic Flower Water Table. Featuring four different platforms and five activities, this exciting table contains a show-stealing flower that blooms when water is poured over it. With spinning turtles, a frog fountain and swimming fish, there’s so much to look at and play with, little ones won’t know what to do first.  It is a great table for entertaining children of different ages due to the three levels which open up more surprises and play opportunities.

Best for budget

If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, an outdoor water play table can keep your little ones busy with lots of filling, pouring and splashing. The Fish ‘n Splash Water Table is great for fishing and counting play. Children can grab their rods to try and catch fish, before throwing them back again.

Best for younger children

Babies and toddlers thrive in the fresh air and there’s no reason why they should miss out on sand and water fun just because they might not be standing strongly yet. Encourage imaginative play with the ultimate sensory accessory – sand. Our classic Turtle Sandbox is ideal for children aged from 12 months. It’s eye-catching and fun in its design and features molded details on the bottom to encourage digging. What’s more, our favorite turtle doubles up as a ball pool! Fill it with balls for colorful active play.

There’s plenty to consider if you’re getting ready for the warmer weather and on the hunt for sand and water tables, but find the right one and your little ones are in for hours of imaginative digging, building, splashing and pouring.
