Can anyone recommend a paddle pool?

I’ve bought a couple of very cheap ones over the past 6 years and they don’t last. I need one big enough for a 6yo and 3yo to share, and which won’t end up as landfill too quickly!

Check your local council by laws as they can apply to paddling pools!

I don’t leave it set up so I don’t think it’s relevant TBH.

I like the $10 Kmart one that is essentially a tarp with a harder plastic side wall. No inflation and easy to roll up and store in tight spaces. Pretty sure if it busted you could cut off the base and pop it in the soft plastic bin at the grocery store. In any case, ours last 2 years. I only tossed it because it was dirty and gross and I couldn’t be bothered cleaning it or storing it.

We had one from Clarke Rubber several years ago. Very good with a canopy overhead. Not the inflatable kind.
ETA Just checked the website, they have a similar one called the splash and shade wading pool. It's about $230

We just buy one from Kmart each year.
They have the best size/price.
They normally last a year or two because something in the lawn pops it.

The shell ones too small for 2 kids? They last for YEARS!
