Wilton Bradley presents their new Playhouse product: Waterwall.
This wall is packed with limitless combinations for children to enjoy a different creation every time they move the pieces.
With a range of modular accessories included, children can have fun creating their own water flows and seeing their problem-solving skills come to life as they pour water from the top.

What our experts think
Waterwall encourages children to get active outdoors and use teamwork and logical thinking skills to make the water flow down the pipes. Using a cup to transfer water into the tray is a great way to help children develop skills in hand-eye coordination, logical thinking and visual processing. As they watch the water running down and turn the water wheels, they are also learning about cause and effect and scientific concepts such as gravity and water flow.
Children are also encouraged to work together and use team-building skills to work out a route for the water to successfully run down the tubes. This helps them to develop important collaborative social skills such as cooperation and problem-solving. Play is a great tool for developing creative problem-solving skills as children can see what works, what doesn’t and how they can adapt their approach. It is worth noting that at times, adult assistance was needed in order to turn the tap and reach the tray as it was a little high for smaller children.
