7 inflatable pool toys to add a splash to your next backyard get-together

Float in style.

Nothing says summer more than swimming – or rather floating – in the pool all day, and even night on some occasions, to beat the heat.

Whether it be alone, with friends, family or even your beloved pooch, cooling off in the pool doesn’t have to be a dull time.

Rather, we can create our own fun at home with a range of colourful, inflatable toys to lounge on or to entertain the kids with – ideally both.
