We don't get many months of nice weather here in the Midwest, so when summer hits...we like to spend time in the pool as much as possible! Whether it's at home, the local pool, or even on vacation...water play is an important part of any child's summer (or adult's for that matter!). That's why I appreciate toymaker Prime Time International!
water guns, backyard toys and more, there's sure to be something for everyone.
I was introduced to Prime Time Toys last year and couldn't have been happier with their high quality products that keep kids blasting, diving and parachuting their way to some fun times during the summer! I was excited to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review another of their fun toys...The Sunken Treasure.
- Sinks to the bottom of pool
- Includes treasure chest and coins
- Recommended for ages 5+
When the Sunken Treasure arrived, my kids were really excited to check it out! They have thoroughly enjoyed playing in our new pool this summer, and having a new toy to play with had them begging to use to it.
Although the Sunken Treasure chest arrived on a week where the weather was too cold for us to be outside in our pool, it did come at a perfect time! We were just getting ready to take a mini-vacation and needed some fun pool toys for the trip. I had a feeling this would be the perfect choice. I was right!
As we opened the treasure chest, we found that it included fun coins. Of course, this made it even more intriguing to the kids! The minute we got to our motel, the kids were begging to take their Sunken Treasure Chest down to the pool so they could start playing.
It's made to sink and rest on the bottom of the pool, then kids can dive in, crack it open and collect the treasures as they float away. I can see why it's recommended for ages 5+, as you have to be comfortable diving under water and swimming. Kaelyn did a great job with this and loved the challenge. Since Kaden (nearly 3 years old) was also playing, most of the time we modified the way it was used and played with it in the more shallow end.
Trying to find a good place for the treasure chest where she and her brother could use it
Both kids had a great time going underwater to collect the treasure coins (or money as Kaden says). It brought the fun of swimming to a whole new level! As they continue to play with this fun toy, I see their confidence in the water growing, not to mention all the fun they have! I love that it's an open-ended type of toy that allows for kids to use it anyway they wish. The sky is the limit!
Getting ready to find the coins under the water
We have found the quality of the Sunken Treasure chest to be top-notch and something that will last us a long time! I'm excited to pull this toy out for future vacations and summer pool fun and know the kids will love it just as much each and every time.
Of course, the Sunken Treasure chest is just one of many fun water games found at Prime Time Toys. Imagine turning your pool water into a 35 foot blast of action! That's the power behind the new Hydro Blaster line of toys. There's also something for those with a little climber, the Big Jump Launcher which is thrown from the tree tops and parachutes safely back to earth.
