It's All Fun and Games

Gone are the days when pool toys and games were limited to an inflatable beach ball and a high-stakes game of Marco Polo. While these classics are still great choices for quality family fun, there’s a whole new world of pool fun to explore.

Your swimming pool is a natural gathering spot for family and friends. With the addition of toys and games, you’ll keep them active, engaged, and coming back for more.

High and dry

The most entertaining outdoor spaces aren’t limited to just in-pool activities. Today’s homeowners are building complete outdoor fun zones to engage all interests. Durable outdoor games like ping pong and corn hole can populate pool decks. Golf putting greens and basketball courts are becoming a popular option within the poolside landscape.

More than hot air

If you want a low-cost yet high-impact addition to your pool, check out the seemingly endless array of pool floats on the market. Once the most commonplace and uninspired among pool accessories, inflatables have evolved in recent years to become the must-have pool toy. From graceful swans and flamingos, to giant frosted donuts and avocados – there’s a pool float to suit your every whim.

Fun inflatables, like this fun flamingo, will have family and friends flocking to your pool. Perfect for playing or lounging and loved by all ages, the giant pool flamingo is the must-have accessory for every pool.
