Default Hard Plastic Pool Online?

Hopefully posting this in the right place..

But I'm looking for one of those hard, plastic pools for my pup because he LOVES playing in the hose and I want to get him used to playing in the water (like this one http://www.toysrus.com/graphics/prod...9510577reg.jpg ). I live in the Florida Keys, so they have them at the store... problem is that it would NO WAY fit in our car and I don't trust myself to tie it to the roof.

Does anyone know where I can get one online? Found on toys r us but they don't ship :c

Good question. I have a few but have never paid for one. Just got another over the weekend (off the curb).

I'm pretty sure you can just get them at Walmart in the summer.

Welcome - I ran into the same problem when I first tried to get one. No one will ship just one. If you have a neighbor with a pickup it would help! Where are you in the Keys? Maybe I could help.

OP said they want to order it and have it delivered since it won't fit in their car and they aren't comfortable tying it to the roof.

Ah, guess I didn't read well enough.

We don't have a Walmart in the Keys anyhow. The nearest one is on the mainland a good 100 miles away from here. The pool would never last through the trip on top of a car. You can get them locally, the OP just needs someone with a pickup or station wagon that can fit it inside.

I am shocked Toys R Us doesn't ship, because they do up here. My mother doesn't have one locally and she bought a Britax car seat for DD and she had them ship it right to our door.

Call a local hardware store, they might be willing to deliver it, or a craigslist ad. Our local hardware has them all summer and they will deliver in town. Sears might be another option, or Walmart on-line?

I'm thinking about asking on CL, but I'm always weary of strangers on there, haha Not too close to any of the neighbors (and in addition the ones I talk to every so often don't have pickups UGH!). I'm in the lower keys (Cudjoe), if you'd be able to help out that'd be amazing

If not I might see if someone in my puppy class would be able to help..

EDIT: Walmart doesn't have the ones I'm looking for.. could ask the sears if they could (also looked online, though, they don't have it). I might have to suck it up and just ask on CL, it would probably be my best bet

Toys r us does ship here in the states....perhaps they just don't ship to that area, or won't ship a plastic kiddie pool. Some items aren't available for shipping. Honestly because of the size, even though it's light weight, the cost would probably be insane to ship it.

OP you really are best off asking a neighbor or friend with a vehicle big enough to pick one up for you.
