6' Ocean Play Snapset Pool (56452) by Intex WetSet

I purchased this pool last year to give my water loving dog a place to play and cool down in the hot weather.

The baking stone arrived in a lovely box. Normally packaging shouldn't be discussed as part of a review but this item is the type of thing that you might consider giving as a gift to someone and when it is is packed into an attractive looking box it increases the overall appeal of the gift.

The baking stone itself is made of one moulded piece of stone-like material. I was surprised at how heavy it was, much more than I had anticipated from looking at the photograph on Amazon.

Please be aware that the stone is incredibly hot when… Read more
