Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was disappointed I had to contact to confirm the purchase was ready for collection, as did not receive any text or email and the online order tracker was not updated. Other than that the product and service was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought this product on line by click and collect and it stated it needed to be picked up from Mother care. It said I would get a text message when it arrived in stock ready for me collect. However this never happened and I had to ring up and was kept on hold for a few minutes whilst the lady checked if my order had come in. Lady was very friendly but I felt as they should have contacted me my phone number should have been taken and they should have rang me back because I had to spend money on that phone call whend I was on hold and it's a phone call I shouldn't have had to make.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought pop up pool with express delivery and it never showed up. I got a refund in the end but they kept saying that it's going to get delivered that day for 3 consecutive days... I just got tired of waiting and got fed up. First time customer for elc and probably the last as well :(

Ask a question

From what age can this be used?

Asked by: Priyanka
We used it from even when he was 6 months but not with water in it... with a few soft toys and as he got older with a variety of sensory other things. Good as he was rolling about and it kept him in. Then we used it for him at 1 year old for doing playdough play ( so no mess on the floor, easy to clean) and in the summer for splash play. We've gotten good use out of it!

Hi, What material is the pool made of?

Asked by: Petra
I believe the pool to be made of a polythene/plastic material. At present it's very hardwearing and certainly takes a battering from young twin boys!

You give the dimensions above but surely the edge of the pool can't be 65cm high.

Asked by: Madeleine
Hi Madeleine, 65cm is the full height of the set, the pool itself is approximately 20cm high I hope this helps Kind Regards
