that's essentially all it is. but my two boys find it pretty awsome.
we wrote letters in it, which were hard to see, but Isaac still had fun guessing which letters i wrote.
however, dinosaurs were the preferred choice for play.
they stomped through the "hay" leaving footprints and digging holes.
and while the tub was nice and deep...
it was by no means capable of holding in all that little boy/dino adventure fun.
i'm sure i will be finding rice for many days to come. but 3 hours of preoccupation for a flighty 4 year old = totally worth it!~
