This week–since its been so hot–I’ve been frequenting my sister’s pool. The other day we were talking about how we used to have a pool growing up and how we never wanted to get out. We would spend HOURS in that pool. Which, I find funny because we didn’t really have a lot of pool toys. We just swam around, pretending to be Ariel or did flips off the deck. Nowadays, it seems like you HAVE to have pool toys; kids can’t be entertained for hours without some sort of object to float on or throw.
So I searched for pool toys online to see what was out there. And OMG, things sure have changed since 1989!
Check out this inflatable see-saw from Target:
That really puts our inflatable alligator to shame.
This next item from Pool Products 4 Less just seems like a disaster waiting to happen. Plus, it seems like it would take up the entire pool!
This item is for the adults! Don’t want to get out of the pool for a drink or to partake in a friendly game of beer pong? There’s no need to fear; Perpetual Kid is here! Just make sure the water is warm enough, a solar heater is a great alternative.
Maybe you’re not much of a swimmer, but you’d like to enjoy the pool whilst feeling like you’re getting a little culture. Enter Swim Outlet’s singing gondolier.
This suave gondolier sings three authentic Italian songs, glides around on the water, and lights up in the evening for some subtle romantic lighting.
