A special thanks to Step2 for sending me this product as part of their Step2 Ambassador program. My boys have been splashing around with the Waterfall Discovery Wall every chance that I give them! As always, all opinions are my own.
Living in a southern state is a great thing when it comes to the weather. We have very defined seasons, but during March and April, we often have these “surprise days.” They are days in the midst of spring that warm up to a glorious mid-80 temperature. Sometimes, the weather will stay like this for days in a row. The kids quickly recognize this upswing in the weather and beg for water play. We’ve been using the water table, but their new favorite item is the Step2 Waterfall Discovery Wall.
This waterfall wall appeals to my boys’ analytical minds. With water maze pieces that can be moved and twisted to create a plethora of waterfall possibilities, the kids have had a blast trying different combinations on the Step2 Waterfall Discovery Wall.
From a mom of multiples perspective, I like that this toy is vertical, so it takes up less space in the garage when I want to store it from the elements or during cooler weather. It has double sided play, and it is very light weight for dumping any leftover water out (not that there will be much of that left!). The kids can play with it on the front porch or the back deck. I can sit and relax while they drench each other with water. 🙂
It didn’t take long for the boys to figure out that they could stick their heads under the dribbling water for a “raindrops are pouring on my head” effect. This elicits giggles every time!
The only thing that I would change about this toy is adding more accessories. Since it is double sided, and I have three sets of little hands playing with it, another set of the mazes would be a nice addition. We are using the cups from the water table with it to create more play accessories, and that has worked out well. However, there are still plenty of items for creative play with the Step2 Waterfall Discovery Wall! We are looking forward to lots of warm weather splashing!
If you’re looking to purchase the Waterfall Discovery Wall, it is currently only sold at Toys R Us.
