I'm looking at the water tables for Easter and the bigger items for second birthday. We will only get one of the large items but I have no clue which to get! Any suggestions in brands or certain sets that have held up that your kids love? I've read so any reviews idk what to pick, lol. Thank you!

We have a rainbow play system. My kids play on it quite a bit but honestly they love the trampoline even more. These are the only pictures I could find that sort of show what it looks like.

I like the Step 2 adjustable sand and water table, it has two sides and each side has a drain and plug so if you want to use both sides for water or for sand you can, and it will still drain out well. (Or one for each, of course). And it has a lid that keeps it covered when not in use.

(Not my kid, BTW, it was a Google search photo)

  Last summer we got DD (then 2) a Little Tykes Imagine Sounds playhouse and it's one of her favorite things.It has a telephone that dials and talks, and has a doorbell that rings and it makes other sounds that she finds fun. It also has a pretend stove where she "cooks" mud pies and things.  As for swing sets, we built our own so maybe someone else will have a suggestion for that.

That is a nice swing set! I wish we had room for something that big. Is it more for 5+year olds!

Where did you get the playhouse? Is the water taxable pretty sturdy too?

My kids are 7, 6, and 4. The girls in the pic are my 4 yr old, another 4 yr old, two 3 yr olds, and a one yr old. All but the 1 yr old play on it regularly with no problems. The 1 yr old mostly just swings.

I just use a tote that goes under the bed as a water table and a old stump to sit it on.

I have no clue about climbers as he is getting one until the summer.

We built our kids a playhouse that has a slide coming from the top. Their absolute favorite thing is the sandbox.
