Review: Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler
Children have long enjoyed the thrill of running through garden sprinklers on hot sunny days. Theyâ€™re a great way to cool off, look pretty, and water your garden all at once! The Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler from Melissa & Doug tries to improve on the standard garden sprinkler formula by a design thatâ€™s both visually appealing and safer for kids at play. However, is this really any better than a regular garden sprinkler? Letâ€™s take a look. Features Of The Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler * Connects to your garden hose, * Entertains kids, * Keeps you cool. Is The Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler Worth Buying? The Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler is certainly appealing to look at. Itâ€™s nicely colored, and features cute little smile-faced flowers each of which sprays a jet of water. Clustered together, they seem like something out of a gentle childrenâ€™s cartoon. Thereâ€™s no doubt that kids are going to love the look of this. Where it really tries to improve design-wise on standard sprinklers is in safety for kids. This is achieved through the soft rubber parts that the sprinkler is made from. The flowers and their stems are firm but bendy. This means that when running across the sprinkler thereâ€™s no chance of toes being caught and bruised or cut. The base of the sprinkler is also rubbery, which further helps prevent painful toe-stubs. Additionally, the whole thing is pretty small, and the base remains low to the ground. This makes it less likely that kids will trip over the sprinkler as they play. Sprinklers are meant to spray water, and this sprays it out in all directions. This is great as it means that multiple children can surround the Blossom Bright Sprinkler and play together without getting in each otherâ€™s ways. As a result, itâ€™s a great choice for small childrenâ€™s parties or for play dates during the warm summer months. One common complaint about this product, although opinions are very mixed, is that the water does not spray very far or high. Even with high water pressure some people report this issue. This could be a result of a faulty product, in which case replacement might help. Otherwise it could be to do with the hose. Itâ€™s possible to improve water pressure by using a shorter hose. Another point which some feel unhappy about is that the sprinkler is made from PVC-based materials. This is meant to be harmful to the environment. Despite these issues, the Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler is a good product. It does its job well and appeals to kids. If youâ€™re not sure whether to go for this, then just try it. Youâ€™re not likely to regret it, and nor are your kids.
