This is a great pool! I have a 5 year old and a 4 year old. They spent hours playing in this pool! It's big enough for them to have fun in, but not so big that it's overwhelming. Great place for grown-ups to stick their feet in and cool off, too. The plastic is heavy and feels like it would last a long time. It's nice that this can be folded up and put away for later use, if you don't have much space to store such things. The pool came in a timely manner and it was easy to set up with a pump. I used our air pump to fill it up and it was great. It holds the water good and it has a plug at the bottom of it (which I see mixed reviews about that on the reviews). I think it is perfect for the price. I just got the chlorine rocks and used a little to keep it clean. You might want to use a tarp under it as well to make sure that nothing pops it. Its nice that I can just put it away for winter time. Bottomline: Excellent buy for the kids!
