step2 review and giveaway

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:54 AM
During the Summer I think we all try to get our kids more active and outside, I know I do. Our yard isn't the flattest of places so it's really hard to get the girls something they can play on like a trampoline or huge swing set.
We are always out doors and with family BBQ's we needed something to keep the girls occupied on the patio while we cooked and socialized.

Recently Step 2 sent us the Play Up Toddler Swing & Slide and the Play & Shade Patio Set so my girls could enjoy the outside since both sets fit onto our patio perfectly.
Kendall not really liking the swing.
 The Play & Shade Patio Set was super easy to assemble with no thinking required.
The table legs snapped together then you had to drill screws into the table top and the legs to secure them. The chairs again just snapped together for an easy 1-2-3 assembly. It took me maybe 5 minutes to put the whole set together!
Usually I get frustrated about 5 minutes in so my husband has to come rescue me but the patio set didn't give me any trouble at all.

We can already tell this Play & Shade Patio Set is extremely durable and I love that it can get wet since of course it rains every afternoon here in Florida. The umbrella is removeable for indoor use or you can keep the bar in but close the umbrella. The only thing I would add is a strip of fabric that wraps around the closed umbrella so it stays closed.

The chairs and table have an X -shaped design for added stability which we love. Also, the chairs have soft rounded corners and are free of sharp edges. No little cuts and scrapes here :)

Facts Step2 has provided:
  • Table & chair legs feature unique "X" design base to provide superior durability and stability
  • Fun, bright colors
  • Large 30" x 30" (76.2 x 76.2 cm) tabletop
  • Includes 40" (101.6 cm) adjustable-height umbrella, one table and two chairs
  • Seat height 11" (27.9 cm)
  • Minimal adult assembly required

We love the Patio set for game time and crafts too. When it's not too hot outside Makenna loves doing her homework at the table.
Win a Play & Shade Patio Set!!

We could use this Patio set since it's hot SO often in Vegas and we could use some shade to be able to play a bit!

i could use this because when we built our house we didn't pay extra for the over hanging porches and such so until that very far in the future upgrade, this would be nice for my girls to sit in the shade :)
