Kisselda, a cancer survivor, and her husband Michael want to bring an extra helping of fun to their special needs children, Alexis and Alexander. They’re hoping to make the most of every day through the power of pretend play
It’s National Pool Opening Day, which means summer is just around the corner and the time for pool parties, water slides, and tons of outdoor play has arrived. As your kids hop in the water for the first time, don’t forget to keep these Swimming Tips to Build Confidence in Your Kids in mind. Once you and your kids are ready to hop in the water, check out these six great water toys that are perfect with or without a pool!
The Fun Zone Drop Zone is a kid-sized pool that packs an extra bit of fun with the built-in dump bucket. Kids can crank water or plastic balls up into the dump bucket until it overflows and sends the water splashing down. The Drop Zone also works as a ball pit indoors. Kids can use the hand crank to fill the dump bucket up with the 25 included plastic balls.
If you’re looking for a way to make your Cozy Coupe® even better, try the Wacky Wash! Twin spray heads and the spinning fabric strips make it feel like kids are taking their Cozy Coupe through a real carwash. The included blower makes this inflatable toy so easy to set up and clean up.
Kids say this spinning toy is so much fun it leaves their heads spinning! Another toy that’s good year-round (the Dual Twister also works as a classic sit & spin toy when not hooked up to water), attach a hose to the Dual Twister and take the fun to a whole new level.
For younger kids, water tables are an excellent way to get used to the sensation of water while they’re learning to swim. Kids can use any of the Battle Splash Water Table’s three included hoses to take aim at the spinning targets, sinkable ships, or the bullseye. Fill the central water chamber all the way to the top and the water blasts back out!
Splash Face is a fun, new aquatic game for kids of all ages. It starts out as a classic game of tug-of-war, but as one side starts to win, the other side gets splashed by a jet of water. The further you pull it, the more the other team gets splashed.
This indoor/outdoor game builds suspense as kids take turns stomping the foot pedal, spinning the crank, or pushing the handle down. Each action takes the pool of water (or the included 25 plastic balls for indoor play) closer to erupting. Don’t get caught underneath when this game bursts with surprise!

Hide and Go Spring!
Gather up all your Springlings and hide them around the house for your kids to find. Hide and Go Seek is a great game to test kids’ creativity and memories, and it’s also a fun way to practice for Easter egg hunting!

Super Star Springlings!
If your kids are big college hoops fans, why not host a three-point contest, or another basketball game, using your Springings?! See what fun trick shots you can make using these springy little animals, how high you can ‘dribble’ them, or try bouncing them off the ground and into your TotSports Easy Score Basketball Set. Springlings are always sure to surprise you with their springiness!
A springy surprise awaits
Springlings are adorable, playful little critters, bursting with excitement that will delight toddlers when opened.
Collect them all!
A Bubbly, Bouncy Tea Party!
Why not throw the ultimate tea party for your Springlings? Gather up some cups, a tea pot, and your Garden Table and Chairs and role play a tea party with your kids and their Springlings.
Role play offers kids opportunities to practice their social skills and real-life interactions. You can even Play Big! with your tea party by preparing some real snacks, adding in a game of musical chairs, or dressing up as fairytale characters.
Silly, Sliding Storytime
Have your kids take their Springlings for a ride down their First Slide, and tell a little story about them as they go. Ask what sort of food their Springlings like to eat, what their favorite games are, and anything else your kids can imagine. Try having your kids build on each other’s stories, one sentence at a time, and see what they dream up!
