I need the help of mums and dads once again! A-Level project.

I posted, about 6 months ago, about a school project I was doing for my A Levels. I needed all of your thoughts on the idea of a kid's garden toy that converted into something suitable for an adult gathering and did not need to be stored. The idea was for parents with not much space in their garden that didn't have room for all their kid's toys and chairs and tables for when they have friends over.
I have now made the product!! It is a stool, when you remove the lid it reveals a spinning disc, this disc has many holes in it of different shapes. The product is connected to a hose which sprays out of one hole just underneath the spinning disc; therefore, when you spin the disc the water comes out in different directions (depending on which hole is covering the water spray). This is a fun game for children as they don't know which way the water is going to spray out next.
Then, when the kids have gone to bed. Mum or Dad can put the lid back on and use it as a table or stool in their garden to have somewhere else for one of their friends or family to sit when its a nice evening.

I would love to hear your feedback, positive or negative.
Here are some questions I have devised for you to answer, or you can just give a small paragraph stating what you think!

1. Do you think your kids would enjoy playing with this product?
2. Would you like to have this in your garden?
3. Can you think of any issues you would have with this product?

Thank you! Would be such a help to me!

I think my kids would love playing with this (and quite frankly my friends wouldn't want to put the lid back on. They'd have a go themselves grin )
It's not huge .from what I can see on the photos.. Might be a little small for the adult bottoms that would be perched in my garden. However it would be a good side table for wine glasses if not a stool.
The only issue I may have with it is colour (white part only. That's going to attract mud!)
Maybe slightly with the legs. A bracing curve on the bottom of the legs may make adults feel steadier. Legs look a bit a bit spindly for my rotund acquaintances!

Kids would like it. I agree with comments about colour and mud above.
Love the pattern though perhaps a darker wooden varnish as background

What makes it spin ?

Is it made of wood? Might take a while to dry out and be usable to sit on later!
