ALERT! ALL PARENTS! ALERT! IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING KIDDIE POOLS BELOW. REPEAT. ALERT!
I saw one of these DECEITFUL things today and just had to re-post this post from last year. DO NOT PURCHASE A GIRAFFE POOL for your children!!! I realize summer is here and with it, the need to buy the kids a pool of some sort--and upon first glance the giraffe pool appears to be a potential load of water fun. DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!! See post below.

Ummmm... can you say discrepancy? We bought this pool for the girls at Target last weekend. Looks like fun, huh? Pretty big. There's like four kids playing it in. Maybe looks like four more could easily fit.
Notice the large giraffe head towering above the little girl, spewing out a geyser of water. (Her arms are even up in the air!!) Well, either that child is an elf or my children are giants because Belle and Dru literally have to lay down as low as they can get underneath the giraffe to get a trinkle of water on them. There is absolutely no spewing. And there's no way two more kids could even fit in this itty bitty thing.
Clearly, a year later, I am still bitter. I just can't stand the thought of any of you spending the $30-something on this piece of junk. And just an FYI: I sent Target AND the company a letter about it. To date, there has been no response. Curse you, Giraffe Pool!!!!
