These cool pool toys will keep you, your kids and your friends entertained and in the pool all day. Whether it's a new pool float or a game that sends you to the bottom of the pool, give your pool some new excitement with some of these ideas.
Pool floats and toys need to be geared to the age and swimming ability of those using them. They need to be durable and last for at least one swimming season.
This foam bat and splash ball offers lots of opportunity for fun and for kids to come up with their own games. I got several extra splash balls to keep the peace.Foam Baseball Bat with 4 Balls
Our pool is attracting lots of visitors lately thanks to this cool inflatable pool slide.
From 3 year olds to 13 year olds the slide is a big hit. Two sprinklers on the top attached to a hose keep the vinyl wet and slippery.
Steps and grab handles in the back make it easy to climb. Put it in the deep end for big kids and the shallow end for the little ones.portable air pump out by the pool and inflated very quickly.
So far it's staying inflated and family and friends want to know when they can come back. Before inflating the pool slide determine where you want to place it so you're not dragging it across the cement and causing any leaks. Don't over-inflate - you can tell if it's over-inflated if you see that the seams are pulling or strained.
We found the best price was on Amazon - so get yours there too:Intex Inflatable Water Slide
These powerful, supersized squirt guns, are a fun addition to any pool for kids, teens and adults. Just hold the toy under water, pull the plunger out, and you have a squirt gun on steroids. Easy to reload and they shoot a long distance - maybe 25'.
Kids can play with them (you will need more than one) and make up their own games or use them for organized games like Squirt Gun Tag. Whoever gets hit with a Max Liquidator squirt is frozen. The last one left is the winner.
Use them to squirt a beach ball to the other side of the pool or have a target for kids to hit or see how many empty pop cans a player can topple over.
Amazon has a two-pack liquidators here:The Orginal Max Liquidator Eliminator 2 Pack
A summer of family visitors had everyone enjoying a game of pool basketball. The hoop is super sturdy and never deflated even with hours of use.
Combined with a diving board, our party of boys age 7-11 kept entertained for hours.
The kids pool toys that are the biggest hit are the ones that are appropriate for the age and swimming ability of the child.
The "big hit" at our swimming pool this summer is this cool pool toy - Finding Nemo Spring Hoops .
I purchased these hoops from Target last year. Our 5 year old granddaughter loves swimming through the hoops in search of "treasures" that are on the bottom of the "sea floor."
Your kids will love to spend more time in the pool with some fun pool floats - from flamingos to sharks, there's a float for every age and interest.
Every summer we let our one of our grandkids choose a fun pool float for the summer. Ms. Peacock is a big hit and looks so regal floating in our pool.
