With the swimming season fast approaching, we’ve been hearing this question in our call center “What are the hot new pool toys this summer?” Our product scouts have been working hard all winter, scouring the planet for new, inventive, cool pool stuff.
Not all swimming pool toys and games are for kids, there are many that adults (like you) would find enjoyable. Let’s take a look at a few new games and toys for this year!
For the Young Ones:
All youngsters love stuffed animals, so why not have them for the pool? Pool Petz, by NeoNoodle, are Plush Mesh Sea Animals – for the pool! Pool Petz float, so you don’t need to worry about them sinking to the bottom.
Pool Petz are filled with EPS beads which make them super-buoyant, super-light, and quick draining. They come in 3 lovable varieties: shark, fish, and a turtle. Don’t be surprised if your child wants to bring this pool toy in for the night, and no worries either, EPS beads and brushed polyester shell dries fast and completely.
While we’re on the topic of amusement park rides, why not amusement park games? The Arcade Shooter is bound to be a hit. It has room for 3 kids (or adults) to play. First one to shoot out all 3 balls from the tube wins! No need to worry about supplying water, it comes straight from the pool, and straight back in!
Looking for fun games to practice your dive and search skills? Look no further… The Triple Fun Pool Game set has got it all in one! Includes a ring, a disc, and an egg in 3 different colors with different point values. Improves swimmer confidence, diving and breath holding skills. Parents, you’re involved too; you’ll need to have your swimmer close their eyes while you throw in these diving toys, and start the stopwatch…
Looking for something a bit more adventurous? Search for sunken treasure at the bottom of the pool, but watch out for pirates! Swim to Davy Jone’s locker, and pick the lock on this buried treasure chest. Bring up the Booty. Throw the treasure back into the “deep ocean” and search again! You’ll find gems, coins, and jewelry in the Sunken Treasure pool game.
For the Adults!
So you’re having a party and need some extra entertainment in the pool. Why not add Port-O-Pong, the pool version of the party game beer pong. Just add cups and your favorite party beverage. Available in blue and pink – the game possibilities are endless. Please drink responsibly around a swimming pool, and watch swimmers closely.
So, there you have it ~ some fun new toys and games to help you enjoy your pool a little more this summer. If your pool has lost some of its appeal, jazz up things this summer with some fresh, fun pool toys and games.
Have a Fun Summer!
