What To Consider When Buying a Kiddie Pool
Safety is of the utmost importance so make sure that when you’re purchasing a kiddie pool that it is in fact, one that was designed just for kids. Water should not exceed more than 3 ft in depth, and kids must always be supervised. While most of these pools are quite shallow, children—especially toddlers—should never be left alone to play.
