Little Tikes are a well known and highly respected brand in the UK and with good reason. Their products are reliable and built from heavy duty plastic that is lightweight but resilient to the elements and the inevitable knocks and bumps from years of abuse from your kids!

This slide is suitable for indoor or outdoor use and is perfect first slide for toddlers and kids between the ages of 18 months and 4 years.

It comes with a maximum recommended weight limit of 27.2kg so older kids can use it but they do get bored quickly due to the small size… they also have a tendency to run up these ones and I’ve ended up buying two because my 6 year old broke the first one!

Assembly takes just a few seconds and when you’re done playing it folds away for easy storage.

  • Budget Friendly
  • Super Easy Assembly
  • Perfect Toddler Slide
  • Suitable for Ages: 18 Months to 4 Years.

  • Not Suitable for Older Kids

Little Tikes Giant Slide

Bigger for Your Budget

So, this one is a bit on the expensive side, but it is worth every penny as it truly is a fantastic kids slide.

It has a maximum weight limit of 34kg, but I can tell you first hand that it can handle a darn-sight more than that too! I’m pushing 80kg and while the steps bend a bit on a hot day, it can handle my weight just fine as long as the step attachment is secure!

We plonked this slide into our paddling / swimming pool and thanks to a hole on the underside of the bottom of the slide, it filled with water and weighted itself to the it makes for a fantastic water slide too.

More suited to the outdoors due to its sheer size, but if you’ve got high ceilings or are looking for a really big slide, it can be put inside as well.

We do have to mention a slight negative to this slide and that is the design of the end of the slide. It comes to a rather high and abrupt stop nearly forcing the kids off of it, so as they were complaining, we put some interlocking foam mats at the exit of the slide to stop them from getting injured!

  • Great for Big & Little Kids
  • Makes a Great Water Slide
  • Perfect for Toddlers and Larger Children
  • Max Weight 34kg+

  • Fairly Expensive
  • Really to purchase foam mats to place at slide exit due to design

This off-brand Chinese import slide is a bargain. 180cm of wavy sliding fun for under £55.

The reviews on Amazon are outstandingly positive although they do mention the plastic construction isn’t as solid as they would have hoped.

Great for children aged 2 to 6 – as it doesn’t come with a maximum weight limit, older children should use it at their own peril!

BeBop Splash Mountain Inflatable Slide

BeBoP Splash Mountain Inflatable Water Slide Bouncy Castle

Amazon Amazon.co.uk
Last update was on: 8th March 2021 6:49 pm

The wildcard! If you’ve got £500 burning a hole in your pocket and you want to treat the kids to something outrageous, then why not buy this inflatable duo dry/wet water-slide & climber combo.

I’m guilty and have to admit I purchased this for the kiddos last summer and it is an absolute BLAST! It takes no longer than 5 minutes to anchor to the ground and it inflates in under a minute – it’s expensive but the kids go absolutely crazy for it.

Whenever the sun is out i’ll be bombarded with “DADDY CAN WE GET THE BOUNCY CASTLE SLIDE OUT” – and honestly I don’t mind setting it up because it’s not too much of a hassle. Packing up is a little bit more arduous as the pegs are starting to weaken after 50 or so uses but replacements are cheap enough.

Suitable for kids aged 3 and up, with a max combined weight limit of 76kg. Once again.. I can attest to the fact that it will hold much more than this but of course do listen to the manufacturers instructions. We’ve had 3 kids and myself (probably a combined weight of 150kg~) and it holds up just fine.

When sliding dry, it can cause occasional minor friction burns due to the sheer speed that the kids manage to pick up – so long-sleeves and proper preparation is essential.

The water slide feature is quite simple to install thanks to the velcro pads, although it does take some adjustment as the fountains tend to veer off to the side.

I would recommend purchasing a wet vacuum (I have a cheap £20 one) for cleaning and removing any remaining water after using the water slide as it’ll prevent mould and yucky smells from festering.

All in all, if you can afford it and have the space for it, I HIGHLY recommend this slide. Of course, it’s not for everyone and the price is a little on the high side… but can you put a price on love?

  • 6.7m Slide
  • Can be Used as a Water-slide or Dry-slide.
  • Inflates in a Few Minutes
  • Well Reviewed

  • ££££ 🙁
  • Friction Burns When Used Dry
  • Pegs Could Be Stronger
