Summer has been a long time coming: With the rising temperatures, many outdoor pools and bathing lakes are reaching their limits. And the beaches around the North and Baltic Seas are also completely overwhelmed by the enormous rush of visitors on hot days. Anyone who has a private pool in front of their nose can count themselves lucky. Be it on holiday at the hotel, in the garden or on the patio at home. To increase the fun factor in the cool water, all you need is the right pool toy. Below are ten water gadgets (for young and old) that are practical and creative at the same time.
They are an absolute trend symbol of summer: flamingos have been very popular for years. Printed on clothing, sewn on bags and embroidered on shoes, the pink animals are everywhere - even as pool toys in the form of an inflated mount that carries children and adults alike across the water. Here you get the flamingo.
Beach volleyball is a popular summer game, but digging and smashing in the sand is a sweaty sport. Why not put the whole thing in the water? Play the next match with your friends or family members in the pool with this inflatable water game including volleyball net and water polo. Here you get the set.
When children learn to swim, diving plays an important role. Diving exercises are on the program so that they gain more security and pass the seahorse. There are special pool toys for this that sink to the bottom and therefore have to be picked up from the bottom. This set contains 18 different elements. Here you get the toy.
In contrast to an ordinary air mattress, this water hammock has a mesh floor so that your back comes into contact with the cool water when lying down. The advantage is obvious: While you are basking in the sun, you get the necessary cooling from below. The separately inflatable head section provides even more comfort. Here you get the hammock.
Even the very small water rats can take part in the pool fun without going under: with an inflatable swimming ring for small children from 12 months (maximum weight 18 kilos) the bathing fun can begin. Thanks to the additional sun protection, your baby is protected from the sun's rays and can splash about in the water safely. Here you get the swimming ring.
This pool toy also invites young and old to splash around. The floating basketball and ring toss game comes with an inflatable basketball and three inflatable rings, giving you two different ways to play depending on your mood. According to the manufacturer, the set is suitable for children aged three and over. Here you get the set.
These light foam water pistols are also perfect for the pool. The 14 cm long toy cannons simply have to be held in the water and pulled by the handle to charge them. If the handle is pushed forward, the fun spraying begins. The set includes six water guns. Here you get the water guns.
This inflatable floating bed is ideal for simply floating on the water in the sun. Made of eco-friendly PVC, the 4-in-1 lounge chair can be used as a hammock, deck chair, drifter and sports saddle in the pool thanks to its flexible shape. The maximum load is 200 kilograms body weight. Here you get the floating bed.
Thirsty in the pool and no drink at hand? There is a practical solution for this too: With an inflatable cup holder (available in nine different designs) made of environmentally friendly PVC, you can easily take your cup into the water with you. The only downside: the cup holders don't carry heavy glass bottles or cans. Here you can get the drink holders.
Made of odorless and eco-friendly TPR materials, this pool toy is suitable for all water games. The bouncing ball has a diameter of 5.5 centimeters and weighs less than 100 grams. The special thing about the gadget is its springy properties, so you can better catch and throw the ball in the water. Here you get ball.
