Number Cruncher

When it comes out again the answer can be confirmed. This will delight children and help them learn numbers up to 20. Included are number recognition, counting, and addition.

Goofy Waterslide
An amusement park all wrapped into one great piece of outdoor equipment. When you attach a hose to this slide and turn on the water, the sprinkles shoot up in the air and onto the slide, making it enjoyable on a hot day. Children can then slide into a landing area with the extra delight of a splash at the bottom. Perfect for summertime and without the hose good for climbing and sliding.
