Not everyone lives in a climate that requires closing the backyard swimming pool at some point in the year. In fact, many of our southern friends are probably reading this blog poolside while soaking in the warm rays of the sun. Before you step away from the computer to top off your iced tea or fruity beverage, consider adding a couple of sure-to-please pool gifts to your holiday giving plans this year. Your pool-loving family and friends will get the pleasure of enjoying them right away, and you’ll be done with your shopping all the sooner.
Here are just a few ideas that always bring big smiles and even bigger fun:
1. Remote controlled water soaker
2. Floating basketball game
3. Mermaid swim fin
4. Starfighter pool float
Even if you don’t live in a warmer climate and you’re reading this snuggled up by the glow of your fireplace, you will still bring a thrill to your pool-loving friends and family members with these gifts. They can look forward to using their new pool gear when swimming pool season rolls around again, and the anticipation might just inspire them to help you with pool-opening tasks this time. An unexpected gift for you, too!
Summer birthdays and holidays make perfect opportunities to entertain friends and family in the backyard swimming pool. The pool is the only entertainment needed, so be sure to have plenty of pool toys and games available. Two favorites among kids and adults alike are the Water Arcade Pool Float and the 3 in 1 Pool Game Set.
Reminiscent of carnival-style water shooting games, the Water Arcade Pool Float challenges three players at a time to a ball-squirting water race. Thanks to the constant-supply water squirters that come with the float, kids will never run out of water during the race. Water is supplied directly from the pool.
The 3 in 1 Pool Game Set combines ladder ball, ring toss, and bag toss games in one unit. These popular pool party games can be played in the pool or at poolside. Adults and kids can have fun demonstrating their skills or playing for prizes.
When you have a backyard swimming pool, summer birthday parties and holiday celebrations are a snap to host. Toss in some fun and unique pool games, and you’ll easily keep the crowd entertained.
One of the many advantages of owning your own backyard swimming pool is having the freedom to use pool toys and floats to your heart’s content. Most public pools don’t allow the use of toys or floats, which limits the number of ways the pool can be enjoyed. Even the most creative kids can grow bored with the public pool when games of Marco Polo and underwater tea parties have been exhausted. Luckily, no such limitations exist at home.
For kids, one of the best additions you can make to your home swimming pool is a pool float with personality. Pool floats come in all shapes and sizes, but the most fun comes with pool floats that double as interactive pool toys. Once your child hops on the back of an orca whale or wrestles with an inflatable crocodile, he can use the attached water squirter to engage in a playtime water battle with friends. Water squirters never need to be refilled because the water is supplied directly from the pool.
Keeping pool floats and pool toys on hand for your backyard swimming pool ensures that your kids can enjoy unlimited possibilities during pool time play — possibilities that are rarely available at the local public pool.
