We used this pool last year when my daughter was about 13 months. She loved it! The inflateable bottom allowed for extra padding and the archway with three hanging stars added great entertainment. She also enjoyed the ring toss - the squeek of the poles made her giggle. Although another reviewer says her pool quickly got a hole when put on her deck, ours was never punctured even though it was used on our concrete porch. Overall, this pool is a great size, great buy (ours was $6 at Walmart), and will probley last this year with our now 22 month old and 10 month old daughters.
