Hey all. Just a note that the cute little guy is shown in the pool with 100 (one package) balls. If you want the pool more full, order more than one package of the balls.

And remember that the pool & balls are sold separately.

How many balls to be able to do this?

From the yellow warning box called "Your choice advisement":

"you have to add both to you cart"

You cart? Come on Woot!, you can do better than that.


[MOD: You win the editor hat for the day. Fixed.]

The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.

It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.

I bought this pool (no balls) a little over a year ago. Folding the pool up is a bit tricky. I used it inside as a play pen which could be crawled in and out of but kept toys consolidated. As far as using it outside- it is a good size. I could fit in it with my two kids for a little splash. I found I used it less than I had hoped or anticipated and my 3 year old preferred sprinklers and my 10 month old preferred warm pool water.

Is there a difference between these and the ones at your parent company for 19.76 and with my free Prime shipping?

100 balls is nothing. They probably have 300 balls in that pool. We have 300 balls in a little tent 4'x4' and it gives you about 6 inches of balls to play in. You can get better deals in larger packs of balls at Amazon. I bought a nice 200 pack for this price.

[MOD: As noted in the photo caption, there are 100 balls in the pit.]

They are only $11.97 at my Wal-Mart. I almost bought them last night, but you need at least 3 bags to make it fun for kids at all.

For the Pop-Up Pool, how do you dump/drain the water? Do you collapse one side of the wall? Or, do you need to tip it over?

I have over 1000 balls at home for my son's ball pit, and it WILL NOT do that. It will only be enough to fill in this pool

While I agree Woot's pricing on these balls are not a deal, you have to also look at the size of the balls. I believe most of the time, the ones sold in retail stores are of smaller size. The ones you bought, I believe is Sizzling Cool brand is smaller in size. The ones shown in Woot is the larger sized ball used often in commercial kids ball pit.

That being said, Intex carries the same large balls in Amazon, everyday price of $20 for 100. Thus this Woot is not a deal at all.

Another brand of ball pit balls that I like is sold by Blast Zone. They tend to be firmer and brighter color than Intex but costs more.

We have a mix of Intex and Blast zone balls of 1000 pieces. So much fun in it...not so much for mommy and daddy that have to constantly pick them up everywhere.

Don't just compare the price....compare the brand and most importantly, the size of the ball. The ones shown here is larger in diameter. The ones you can buy from Toys R Us or Walmart are an inch smaller. Makes a big different when you try to fill up a big ball pit.

I wondered why it was gone. I came back on here to purchase it and was confused that another product was up and it wasn't time for it yet. Boooooo!
