This is why water toys/outside toys for Easter when you live somewhere that is still cold are stupid.

Yes, you are the parent and it's your call to say no and he'll just have to get over it, BUT it is also incredibly unfair to give a young child a present that they can not use right away.

Take this as a lesson and save the outside/water toys for a summer gift.

Kids need to learn that life doesn't always provide instant gratification. I say the water toys can wait for warmer weather. Who's in charge here? If he whines, just make it clear it's not up for discussion. Decision made. End of story.

Is it like a slide type bowling mat? If so I would say no and try to come up with another fun activity like water balloons in the bath unless you have a garage, maybe could put it there.
