    the game with two avocado toys

    Promising review: "My niece and nephew love Throw Throw Burrito so much, so when I saw this at Target, I couldn't resist. They actually liked the Avocado version better because of the Legs Duel (you have to stand back to back, take three paces, turn, but then you must throw the avocados through your legs). It's absolutely hysterical. I didn't think those foam burrito characters could get any cuter, but the little round avocados are every more charming. Obsessed!" —cindyw

    Promising review: "The placement of the hose hookup is brilliant. It makes it lay flat with no trip hazard for the kids. It's very durable and I had no issue saying yes to this being used for a 'car wash' game. The more flimsy plastic mats wouldn't hold up to that, but this clearly had no issue handling it. I just hang it on the railing to dry and hook it up whenever he wants to play, the best and easiest heat-beater yet, and we have tried a lot! Not cumbersome to use, doesn't kill the grass since it's so easy to pick up each time, and holds a few inches of water for play to continue even if you turn the hose off for a while. Best summer purchase to date, I highly recommend it! Kids from new walkers to pre teens have enjoyed this splash pad!" —Kim P.C.
