Since the Big Splash Center was discontinued years ago, we’ve received an overwhelming amount of requests to produce this product again.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback we receive from our customers and welcome any feedback about our products. Because of your feedback, we’ve brought back the Pedal Farm Tractor, the Choo Choo Wagon, and are now shipping directly to Canada. We’ve also passed the feedback about the alternatives to the discontinued Kangaroo Climber to our research and development team.
Here is some of the feedback we’ve already received about the Big Splash Center:
“I am curious to know why step 2 discontinued slide that goes w/big splash pool? They are a HOT item on ebay!” –Anonymous
“BRING BACK THE BIG SPLASH POOL/Slide. There is not one out there that is as durable.” – Lora
“I want a Step 2 Big Splash Center for the grandson and dogs to cool off in, but I can’t find one. I don’t want a cheap pool that won’t endure a southern summer! Be different and market a useful item that lasts! Please consider producing this item again…” -M. Ryan
“Please bring back the Step 2 Big Splash Pool! We had ours for 13 yrs, 5 kids, numerous neighbor and daycare kids before it got a crack in it only because our son jumped on it when it was turned upside down. I am heart broken to find out that this slide isn’t available anymore. Please bring it back!” -Amy
What do you think? Do you want the Big Splash Center to return? Is there another Step2 product that you wish we would bring back? While we can’t ensure that this or any item will return, we welcome your feedback!
Thank you all so much for your feedback and passion regarding the big splash pool. Over the last few months here at Step2, we have been trying to find a way to make this product so that it is affordable to customers, affordable to ship, and still has all of the features and quality you would expect from Step2. Unfortunately, we are unable to come up with that right combination, and therefore, we have decided not to move forward with bringing this product back.
Back by popular demand, the Pedal Farm Tractor, our classic three-wheeled pedal tractor, is back! This item was previously discontinued in 2009, but since then, we’ve received numerous requests to bring this item back.
We couldn’t disappoint these customers:
“Our neighbors have [a Pedal Farm Tractor] and it is by far the favorite neighborhood toy. I have looked into getting one but it looks as if it has been discontinued. Nobody is selling theirs, I tell you they are hanging onto them because it is such a great toy…My kids love to be active and play outside and I would rather not have them on a motorized vehicle, for safety and health concerns. In short I would love to see it return!” – Jenny S.
“My son was in our local hospital in pediatrics and they had one for him to play with. So I have looked all over online to find one for him since he is home now, but still not in the best condition and we would like to lift his spirits some and buy this item for him. Please let me know what I can do, its [sic] something he would really like to have.” – Stacey A.
“I run a pre school and they are the most favorite toy for riding inside. I cannot find any at stores that they used to be at. Did you discontinue this item? If not please inform me how to get some new ones for my preschoolers who dearly love them.” – Karen F.
Are you happy we brought this item back?
