The Water Limbo Sprinkler is a water-based Limbo game with a Tiki theme. The sprayer head connects to a standard hose and shoots a thin stream of water at a high enough pressure to turn it into a Limbo stick. At the push of a button the blue head at the top of the post plays island music and a voice occasionally prompts kids to lower the sprayer nozzle (adjustable to any height up to 4 feet) and try to sneak under without getting wet. My children had more fun playing without the loud music and voice, instead adjusting the water according to their own rules. After a standard Limbo game, they had a great time trying to jump over an increasingly high stream of water and using the easily-twisted sprayer for a game of water tag. Water volume is lower than with other water toys we have owned, so parents will be happy to find an outdoor game that doesn't kill the grass or turn it into a swamp. The kids could hardly wait for the next hot day.
