I had been thinking about getting a Little Tikes Slide for my child for some time now. He loves to climb and enjoys learning. He loves going to the park and the slide is one of his favorite things to go on. Unfortunately, sometimes the bigger kids take over and don’t give him an opportunity to go down the slide.
Why a Little Tikes Slide
I liked getting out to the park too but dealing with the other kids was getting to be too much. I had seen slides outside of various daycare businesses in the area and thought why couldn’t we get a slide too? I started doing research and discovered that the brand Little Tikes was one of the most popular and they had a wide variety to choose from.
I knew that my child would love having his own slide. He liked to talk about how fun it was to go down the slide each time. I loved watching him go down the slide too. His face would light up and he would have a big smile on his face every time. Sure it didn’t last long, but the climb and waiting for this turn was worth it. I wanted him to have those experiences more often and in the comfort and safe environment of his own home.
While looking at each Little Tikes Slide that was available, I thought about my child’s current height and mobility and where he was soon to be moving onto. I decided that he needed a little bigger one because I didn’t want him to grow out of it before he could really enjoy the slide. There were a number of slides that I could choose from and making that final decision was kind of difficult. In the end, I knew that whichever one I chose, I knew he would love it.
Presenting the Little Tikes Slide
After reviewing the options that I had, I finally made my decision. I was excited about getting it home and that my son would love it as much as I was excited. I chose one that had more than a slide so it was a little too big to be in the house, which I was a little disappointed in. I was thinking that it would be great to have inside during the colder weather.
Well, I quickly got over that once it was getting put together in the backyard. The level of anticipation was getting the best of me as the slide was finally completed. The time came and the slide was presented to my son. When my son saw that he had a very own slide of his own, he was absolutely thrilled. If I would have known that he was going to be that excited, I would have invested in one much sooner than I did.
Now he doesn’t ask to go to the park anymore, although we still do sometimes. But he loves his slide. He doesn’t have to wait for anyone except for when his friends come over and play but he doesn’t care and neither do the other kids. Sometimes his friends’ parents have a hard time leaving because they don’t want to stop playing on the slide.
I am really glad that I finally made the decision to buy my son a slide. He has had many adventures and I know that he will have many more on his Little Tikes Slide.
