hoping someone can help. Am looking for a hard plastic paddling pool for my dd. Strong plastic is no good as she bites through it. Have lost count of how many paddling pools we have got through over the years!

The type I'm looking for would be like the, 'shell' paddling/sand pit, only on a bigger scale. It doesn't have to be a paddling pool but something that can be emptied, and not bitten through!

All ideas welcome

what about this

thanks you two ;)

It's more like the size of the first one sodit posted, deeper would be even better! But with the hard platic of the shell type one bubagirl posted.

I don't know if there is even such a thing tbh... maybe something like a fishpond - sounds like hard work tho!

I had a look a while ago, and came across a site where people were looking for ones for their dogs - they seemed to be having trouble finding anything too..

DD will be 13 next Month, so doesn't have to be too shallow. She lovees the water and is like a fish! Saying that, maybe the fish pond wouldnt be such a bad idea!!

Actually, just had another thought!

In our church, they have a big pool type thing at Easter for baptisms.... might be worth me asking the priest where he got it from... not sure if thats acually solid plastic or not?

off to do a search for 'baptism pools' lol

lol bubbla,
I was suprised to actually find baptism pools!

That wooden one you posted is lovely, bit beyond my price range tho!! Mind you wonder if the family fund could help... keep meaning to send in an application form.... I am prob a bit late for this year, but may be able to help me for next Summer.

Thanks again
