Hi All

Am interested in any comments anyone has about small blowup swimming pools.  I am looking for something that can be used by 3yo and 2yo on warm days for a bit of fun (ie not serious swimming).  Toys R Us have a sale this week on an Intex 8ft Clearview Easy Set Pool which looks ideal.

Not much said about this product though online.

The 8 foot ones require a pool fence.
If you are not prepared or able to get a pool fence get one of the $12 wading pools from Kmart and empty it after every use.

I got a Bestway brand inflatable 157 cm in diameter and 41 cm in height pool for $25 from Kmart. They're out the back playing in it now. Seems pretty sturdy.

Thanks Cinnabubble, Bestway ones go on sale at KMart this week so was just thinking about them.  

And for the advice about fencing.  I am on acreage with several dams which is a concern for me.  If only the dams were nice enough to swim in then I wouldn't need a pool.
