Splashy’s Stories

Six last-minute Christmas gifts every kid will love this summer

  1. grossery-gangGrossery Gang Yucky Mart Playset
    Moose Toys
    $29.99
    Take a peek inside the Yucky Mart and you might just catch The Grossery Gang hanging out in the vile aisles! This crusty crew of putrid products have hit their expiration dates and festered to life to create their own brand of filthy fun! The fun times (and fragrant fumes) never stop when the Grossery Gang’s involved!


  1. watermelon-beach-ball-sunnylifeWatermelon inflatable beach ball
    Sunnylife
    $18.95
    Inflatables are big this summer and fruit is the other key theme of the season – this sun-sational inflatable beach ball combines both of these! Plus, did we mention it happens to look like a giant watermelon cut in half?


  1. image-8Ticket to Swisse Kids presents Splashland
    Splashland
    $31.50
    Throw out the X-Boxes and Gameboys, Splashland is bringing five inflatable water slides, including the world’s biggest, Trippo, to Mornington Racecourse and Caulfield Racecourse this summer for hours of slippery, slide-y, summer fun! With a menu that will delight both kids and adults (keep a lookout for the throwbacks to your own summer trips down to the local milk bar) and a wonderland of summer fun, Splashland is the place to be these school holidays.


  1. bbl-light-up-batLight-up cricket bat
    Big Bash League
    $12.99
    Summer means long days playing cricket on the beach or in the backyard (where everyone knows that if you hit the ball over the fence, it’s six and out), which is why we are loving these light-up plastic bats from the Big Bash League. Not only are the lights practical for when it starts getting dark, but they’re obviously a must-have for every young cricketer. Plus, they come in a range of team colours!


  1. shopkinsShopkins Shoppies Donatina Donut Stand
    Moose Toys
    $30
    Just in case you’ve been living under a rock (or if you only have sons), Shopkins are the ‘it’ toy of this year. These tiny collectable figurines come in every possible shape, style and colour, but we particularly love the donut stand because of the cute little sprinkled pastries and shopping cart that comes with it.


  1. karyn-in-la-milly-sunglassesJohn Lennon-esque sunglasses
    City Beach Australia
    $9.99
    They may be about 40 years too young to know who John Lennon is, but that doesn’t mean the kids can’t wear sunglasses inspired by the music legend!

When size matters: who and what is Trippo the water slide?

dsc_6370

Australians love big things. We drive for miles to visit the Big Banana and the Big Pineapple. One of the most iconic, sacred and culturally significant landmarks in this entire country is the big rock itself, Uluru. We just love big things.

Trippo water slide is simply huge. In fact, it’s the world’s largest inflatable water slide.

Try to imagine a 12m-high monster jumping castle that’s as wide as a 10-lane swimming pool and has 54m of water slide coming out of it. Now you’re beginning to understand just how enormous this water slide is.

If you put Trippo next to a building and stood at the top of the water slide, you’d be able to peer into the third-story window and wave at whoever was inside.

Trippo has been spreading the joy at Perth, Cairns, Port Douglas and Victor Harbour, but this year the world’s biggest inflatable water slide is making its way to join Swisse Kids Presents Splashland in Mornington and Melbourne this summer.

And we just know that every kids who slides down Trippo is going to love boasting to their friends that they’ve been on the world biggest water slide these summer holidays.
