Ride-ons can be inexpensive. Price often determines the durability of swimming pool toys; higher-end ride-ons might have motors attached so the toy can be driven around the pool. Some pool toys are designed to hold either one child or multiple children. Choose swimming pool toys with shapes and colors that interest children. A baby float comforts children to make them feel comfortable in the water, and in turn, more relaxed swimmers.
Inspect water toys for quality seams; seams will suffer abuse when ride-on water toys are sent into motion by kid power, which includes a lot of kicking and splashing. Never leave water toys in an unattended pool - they may attract small children to water that is unsupervised.
Variety Spices Up the Pool
Simple pool toys like beach balls, swim rings, swimming noodles, and sponge toys provide hours of fun for all ages. Some pool toys like water guns and water blasters can be played with outside of the pool setting. Competitive team games like water basketball and pool volleyball are musts for pool parties. Ultimately, the purpose of stocking your pool with swimming pool toys is to safely encourage physical activity and to increase quality family time.
If infants and toddlers are spending time in the pool, make sure there is adult supervision. Increase pool safety by selecting inflatable water toys scaled to their size rather than modifying larger swimming pool toys for their use.
A quality air pump and a patching kit are necessary for minor repairs and routine maintenance. Purchasing inflatable swimming pool rafts allows for easy winter storage by deflating and storing in large totes. Non-inflatable swimming pool toys are often made of synthetic materials and sturdy plastic. Check into the manufacturer's reputation before making your swimming pool toy purchases. Do not purchase pool toys with sharp edges that could cause injuries or small pieces that may cause choking.
