    So Alfie has been getting very bored with all his toys lately as they are all the same sort of things teddies, or electronic and lights and sounds so I wanted something different but I'm so poor atm so I thought he would have to wait

    BUT

    Thanks to Asda I brought a £3 paddling pool and a £5 pack of 100 balls and created my own ball pool which Alfie absolutely loves :D

    yeah he has an outdoor pool with a shade at his grandads as we live in a small flat with no garden there is only so much we can fit in the flat but this fits nicely under the cot without having to pack away lol

    Tesco yesterday had 8ft adult pools reduced right down to £15, would make a excellent adult ball pool.... Although it may cost a small fortune in balls to fill!! :)

    heheeh love it!!!!! We have the hard pool with two halves and filled them up with balls in the garden too - they get some well needed space from each other then too.

    This thread has reminded me I need more balls - 50 in each side looked pretty pathetic!
