DD is 20 months, highly mobile and loves the slide at nursery and we are planning on getting her her own for our garden.

We were staying with friends who had a little tikes giant slide. We noticed DD put her feet down on the bottom part quite a lot but didn't really think anything of it.

We were about to buy one on Amazon and noticed a lot of complaints about that model and it flattening out at the bottom. Either children put their feet down and sumersaulted or slide off the end at an odd angle.

Can anyone make me an alternative recommendation? I'd probably want one recommended for 3+ years.

Dont get one that has a double slide in it if you see what I mean (like a hump in the middle)- get one which is straight up and down. if they are yourng and light, they become slightly airborne on the hump and slam down on their bums on the second bit. Not good!
