Step 2 Rain Showers Splash Pond Toddler Water Table

This water table is buzzing all over the internet making it the best water table of summer 2024, hands down! It comes with 13 accessories for fun games like a maze spinner, interactive duck catapult, and more for STEM play. Plus, it’s a generous 32″ H x 24″ W x 39″ D and holds a whopping 5 gallons of water for fun that parents don’t need to keep refilling! 😉

We couldn’t love this water table more! The rain shower effect makes it fun again and again and I just love that there’s plenty of space to play. Plus, one of the biggest gripes I hear from parents is what little to no accessories water tables come with. This one has a BUCKET (must-have), three squishy squirters for my 3 kiddos, and much more. It’s the perfect summer essential so grab it now and you’ll quickly get your money’s worth when they play over and over! – Hip Sidekick, Chelsey

“I love that it is a standing water table, because what’s more amazing than watching a waterfall for little kiddos?? 🤣 Plus, there are 2 sides and so many moving accessories – I was HOPING there would be more sharing and less fighting – so far, so good! I also love the stand-up design because it takes up less space.” – Chelsey

Whether it’s too hot to play outside or you don’t have a backyard, the kiddos can still make a splash thanks to this tabletop water table! It includes 11 water accessories, 3 boats, and everything stores in the bin with a lid for easy storage.

My baby is in love. Easy to assemble and disassemble. Love that everything stores together in a compact container. The little gadgets it comes with are fantastic. It’s an all-in-one toy that you can spruce up with extras if you want. Great for people who don’t have a yard or a small space.

5. OR you can have a splash pad + water table right in your backyard.

If you’re looking for a water table that can be used year-round, you might consider this option that also supports Montessori learning. It includes three storage compartments that can be used for everything from water to sand, dry beans to rice, and much more!

Got this for my daughter to make sensory activities. It is perfect for that because I can insert boxes with sand, water,.etc. we keep it in the garden and it works amazingly!

Only $33.09 (regularly $55.99)!

You don’t have to spend a ton to have some water fun! This water table includes a rotating crane and fun interactive features so kids can engage with the stop and flow of water. Plus this plastic is BPA-free too!

I bought this for my 4 year old grandson 2 1/2 years ago. Since then I have 2 more grandsons and they always want to play with this. At first I would put it on a plastic tablecloth on the floor for him to play with since it was too cold outside. Now it sits outside year-round and it’s the first thing they want to play with. We have never put sand in it but they like putting water in that spot also. They love the little trucks and pieces and do all kinds of fun things, using their imaginations. I’m now buying another one for them to have twice the fun because they love it so much and I get more than my money’s worth out of it.

8. This Little Tikes 3-in-1 water table grows with your baby!

If you’re looking for a one-time purchase that does it all for the summer, this water table has two side benches and an umbrella so it’s perfect for picnic or play! The two removable compartments can be used for water or sand and then you can cover it with the wooden cover for use as a regular table.

This is a water table purchase that’s sure to last for summers to come and has over 3,300 reviews!

This table is sturdy and well-made. Great picnic, and arts/crafts/play table for all my grandchildren. Also, the bins for wanted and sand along with the toys, to play in when the top is removed provide great entertainment for the toddlers. Bought one for grandsons 1st birthday with navy umbrella to match their outside furniture, and recently bought one for our backyard for all the small grandchildren with the green umbrella to match our furniture cushions. Will buy another one in a few months for 2 more toddler grandchild birthdays for use at their house. This table will last for several years, looks nice on our patio, and is well worth the money. Hubby is going to add a coat of polyurethane for protection from elements, and I found a cover for it on Amazon as well.
