One Step Ahead was very generous and gracious when I contacted them and asked if they would like to be on Mom Start for a review and giveaway.
One Step Ahead loves mommy bloggers and for me I was able to choose from few different products and I chose the Jumbo Hopscotch Splash Mat. The Splash Mat retails for 24.95 and is recommended for ages two and up.
I didn’t read the directions so this is my story. I took i tout of the box and hooked up the hose to it. I was surprised that it had to fill up before it worked. It didn’t take long though and then the water was spraying out in between each of the numbers.
My daughter didn’t like the water coming out very strong so I turned the pressure down and then she would play in it. She’s not very into getting wet but I was able to encourage her and she was counting up and down repeating after me. We had fun on it until the mosquitoes came out.
I really liked it and I played on it with them. I haven’t had any problems with it. I found it very slow to release all of the water in it. We live in Washington so I expect it to get yucky before too long, but we’ll enjoy it for as long as we can. She can practice reading her numbers and we can remember colors and the shape of squares. She played with the little sandbags as well. It came with four and it was still very difficult for her to share one with her brother, but she did.
