Step2 Tropical Island Resort Review

Somewhat warm weather. Nasty weather. Sun then snow. Rain then more snow. Sun.

This time of year is hard for us. After so many months of Winter, the kids just want to play outside. We are all done with Winter! Yet, we can’t break out the kiddie pool in the backyard yet. But rest assured parents, there is a way to bring the outdoor play inside, and try something different until Mother Nature graces us with better weather.

My kids got a Step2 Tropical Island Resort. It’ll be super in the summer sun, yet we couldn’t wait until then to test it out. So, we brought a little tropical fun inside!

Step2 Tropical Island Resort ReviewIn about 20 minutes I had the set put together {very easy, I did it myself!} and then the girls got their swimsuits on!

There are so many features to this water play set. A slide and diving board, a water wheel carrousel and much more!

Pump the geyser and the water flows into a lagoon.

The palm tree has spinning gears hanging monkey. When water is poured on top of the palm tree the wheels and gears spin. Very interactive and teaching cause and effect. Plus, just plain fun!

At perfect height for toddlers, there was more than enough room for both twins to play. This is important to me, since I don’t like to purchase two of an item for them to play.

This water table includes a 14 piece accessory kit like a family, a boat and animals and much more. The girls really liked having the new toys to go along with the table.

Even indoors, the girls loved having a beach day. They spent hours playing with the Step2 Tropical Island Resort. Indeed it was a break from our usual Winter-time play routine.

We even had a fruit tray for snack and made summer smoothies!

Step2 Tropical Island Resort Review

The Step2 Tropical Island Resort is recommended for ages 1.5 and up and I have to agree. Even my 7yo enjoys this water table. She is actually able to make the people really fly on that diving board!

Another great feature is the easy and convenient drain, used to remove the water. So, I used a bucket to fill it up and then drained the water back into the bucket afterwards. So simple with no leaking at all during use. This water table is a very durable design, yet lightweight enough that I was able to carry it myself with ease.

There’s even an empty hole on one side, to hold a 40″ umbrella {sold separately}. Our backyard is full sun all day long, so I appreciate this feature so that I can keep the kids out of the sun’s harmful rays. Plus, since it has a designated space for the umbrella, it would be secure and not tip over when they are playing.

Though we can’t wait to take the Tropical Island Resort water table outdoors, it’s great that it can be played indoors as well. It was a great idea to have an afternoon beach party, a wonderful way to beat the last of the Winter blahs!

  14. The Extreme Coaster would be so much fun at my sons Carnival Themed Birthday party but I was actually just telling my husband how much I would love to get our son a water table to play with. I just know that he would love one….crossing my fingers!

  15. Of everything from their site, I would want the Art Studio for Two 😀 my 2 monkeys Love art, and this would free up my table lol

  27. Another product I love is Adventure Lodge Play Center with Glider and Sandbox Combo

  28. I agonm a big fan of Step2 products. We have everything from a wagon to toy boxes to kitchen sets. I did not realize they carried baby toys until I went to the website.

  30. I LOVE the Naturally Playful Countryside Cottage for our backyard. Every year I say I want to get a playhouse. Maybe this year!

  32. Would love to win this for my grandson and saw the Step 2 Naturally Playful Cottage Combo on their website that would be a grand addition for my granddaughter!

  33. If money wasnt an object…Adventure Lodge Play Center with Glider and Sandbox Combo

  34. The extreme coaster looks like fun. we have a ton of Step 2 including the grand walk in kitchen and the cozy coupes….

  36. I’d love to have Naturally Playful® Playhouse Climber & Swing Extension.

  37. Naturally Playful® Adventure Lodge Play Center looks like so much fun for my grand daughter.

  38. The Tropical Island Resort is just what I have been looking for! I tried to find another toy I would like to have but I would want this one more!

  39. I think my son would like the extreme coaster, we have the regular one, he still loves it but is a dare devil so he’d love a bigger one. I’ve also always wanted the canopy wagon.

  40. Actually, I’d really like to get a KidAlert V.W.S. We live on a cul-de-sac of a neighborhood with no sidewalks, and although I never let my kids play in the street without me there, I would feel better with this sign!

  41. glad the tropical island resort says “1.5 years and up….looks like loads of fun, for everybody 🙂

  42. I would love to have the clubhouse climber or anything for that matter. Thanks! 🙂

  43. If money grew on trees I would love to buy the Naturally Playful Cottage Combo 🙂 Fell in love with it and then noticed the price.. Yikes! lol
