One Step Ahead: Inflatable UFO Squirter Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 272 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ judybrittle!

It's summertime and you can find my kids in the pool regularly! They're like two fish out there. They love to play games and have a ton of fun outside. They especially love their new toys from One Step Ahead. I've had the pleasure of working with this top quality, professional company.

Their Inflatable "UFO" Squirter is so much fun! My children are 5 and 7 and they're the perfect size for them. The toys are very durable. My kids have really used these and they have held up nicely. They are comfortable and have provided many hours of enjoyment.

The squirt gun doesn't shoot water out very strong. That can be a strength or weakness depending on if you want that in a toy. What's really cool is that the squirt gun never runs out of water. That's a plus and kids love that!

The chairs are great, but I do find that my kids can't maneuver them around the pool. Since the design is a chair, it really doesn't allow them to move the toy to where they want to go. However, they really love sitting in them which allows the toy to float them all around the pool. And when they do get near each other, watch out, prepare to get wet!

Here is more about this product from their website:

With its cushy armchair style, this is our most relaxing pool float ever! But when you're ready for some excitement, grab the swiveling squirt gun and have a wet 'n wild sea battle. Draws water up from the pool, so you never run dry. (Tons of fun, and at this price, you can buy your own fleet!) Rugged 13-gauge vinyl. Inflates in 10 minutes with our Pump (sold separately). Shown here with two Inflatable "UFO" Squirters (sold individually). Supports up to 250 lbs. For ages 3 and up.

I'm sure you've all heard of One Step Ahead and can agree that this company offers an amazing selection of products for children. This company is truly outstanding and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for quality and safety in a product.

One Step Ahead would like to offer one lucky reader an Inflatable "UFO" Squirter!
