Summer has also come to Germany: temperatures remain high and provide tropical conditions in many places. Cooling off in the local outdoor pool, in the local bathing lake or in your own garden pool is just that.

Summer is fast approaching: with the rising temperature, many outdoor swimming pools and bathing lakes are already reaching their limits – thanks to Corona. And the beaches around the North Sea and the Baltic Sea are also completely overwhelmed by a huge influx of tourists on hot days. Anyone with a private pool in front of their nose can count on luck. Whether it’s on vacation in a hotel, in the garden or on your home patio. To increase the fun in cool water, all you need is a suitable pool toy. Here are ten water gadgets (for young and old) that are practical and creative at the same time.

1. Inflatable flamingo

They are an absolute symbol of the summer trend: flamingos have been very popular for years. Printed on clothes, sewn onto bags and embroidered on shoes, pink animals are everywhere – even as pool toys in the form of an inflated mount that carries both children and adults on the water. Here you have a flamingo.

2. Billiard volleyball

Beach volleyball is a popular summer game, but kicking and smashing into the sand is a sweaty sport. Why not throw it all in the water? Play your next game with friends or family in the pool in this inflatable water game in which you’ll find a volleyball net and a water polo. Here you get a kit.

3. Diving toys

When children learn to swim, diving plays an important role. Regular diving exercises are on the agenda to be safer and stay ahead of the seahorse. There are special pool toys for this that sink to the bottom and must be collected from the bottom. This set includes 18 different pieces. Here you get a toy.

4. Water hammock

Unlike a regular inflatable mattress, this water hammock has a mesh floor so that your back is in contact with cool water when you lie down. The advantage is obvious: you get the necessary cooling from below when you bask in the sun. The separately inflatable headrest provides even more comfort. Here you have a hammock.

5. Swimming ring

Even very small water rats can play in the pool without being submerged: with the inflatable swimming ring for toddlers from 12 months (maximum weight 18 kg), you can start having fun in the bath. Thanks to the additional sun protection, your baby is protected from the sun’s rays and can safely splash in the water. Here is a swimming ring.

6. Basketball and throwing the ring

This pool toy also encourages young and old to splash around. The floating basketball and ring tossing game comes with an inflatable basketball ball and three inflatable rings, so you can play two different ways according to your mood. According to the manufacturer, the set is suitable for children over 3 years of age. Here you get a kit.

7. Water guns

These lightweight foam guns are also perfect for the pool. Toys 14 cm long are enough to hold in the water and pull the handle to charge them. If the handle is moved forward, fun spraying begins. Comes with six water guns. Here you have water guns.

8. Inflatable floating bed

This inflatable floating bed is perfect for just floating in the sun. Made of eco-friendly PVC, the 4 in 1 lounge chair can be used as a hammock, deck chair, tramp and a sports saddle by the pool thanks to its flexible shape. The maximum load is 200 kilograms of body weight. Here you have a floating bed.

9. Cup holder

Thirsty in the pool and you don’t have a drink on hand? There is also a practical solution for this: thanks to the inflatable cup holder (available in nine different designs) made of eco-friendly PVC, you can easily take your water cup with you. Only downside: cup holders do not support heavy glass bottles or cans. Here you can get drink holders.

10. Bouncing ball

Made of odorless and eco-friendly TPR materials, this pool toy is suitable for all water games. The bouncing ball is 5.5 centimeters in diameter and weighs less than 100 grams. What distinguishes the gadget are its elastic properties, making it easier to catch and throw the ball into the water. You have the ball.
