Do you have fond childhood memories of splashing around in a kiddie pool on summer days in your backyard? Blow up pools have been around for a long time, and they continue to be a big hit with the kiddos. The only thing that’s really changed are the pools themselves.
See, today’s inflatable pools are simply way better than what you probably remember as a kid. Sure, there are still plenty of ugly, low-quality kiddie pools that won’t last the summer. But if you look hard enough, you can find many amazing inflatable pools for kids – whether we’re talking babies, toddlers, or older children. (For that matter, there are some great inflatable pools for adults, but that’s a topic for another article.)
You can always browse the selection at Walmart or one of the many other brick-and-mortar stores that sell blow up kiddie pools. But you can likely find better and cheaper options by looking online. To get you started, here are 10 of the best inflatable kiddie pools we’ve come across:
As awesome as all these kiddie pools are, keep in mind that inflatables are notoriously fragile. If you have particularly rowdy kids – or water-loving dogs who insist on climbing in – you’re probably better off with a hard plastic pool. Otherwise, just know that your mileage will vary with these cheap kiddie pools.
Whatever kiddie pool you choose, here’s hoping it makes your backyard a little more colorful and fun. It’s going to be a great summer!
