6 Pool Floats for Children

Updated on July 12, 2012

Summertime is here and kids love the pools, don't they? Spent quite a lot of time swimming as a kid, and let me tell you, you were lucky if the local toy store stocked a plain old pool raft, let alone of the kiddie floats you see here. Who wants a dull-looking pool toy, when you can get a riding pool float in the shape of a gecko or dragon? Not me! And not your kids, either. Thankfully, these are highly affordable, unlike all the other goodies your kids ask for year round. A piece of advice, however -- get one for each kid, as they tend to not be keen on sharing these once in the water!

Canopy Float Activity Center

This cute little pool float has 3 positions and that canopy can be removed (though you'll probably want to keep it up, as it keeps baby safe from UV rays). The play station will keep baby entertained whilst kicking it in the pool; it comes with a rattle, squirter, a teether and stacking rings. Recommended ages 9 mos to 2 years.

Deluxe Toddler Racer

If you've got a future NASCAR driver in the family, this will probably make him or her very happy. That steering wheel turns, the horn honks, and is made of super heavy duty materials. Recommended ages 6 mos to 18 mos.

Dargon Ride-On Float

This Dragon Float isn't for babies, but if you've got a child aged 3 or older, they will adore this! It's large enough to be magical for small children and both boys and girls will love it. Made by Intex, the pool people!

Jumbo Caterpillar Float

This gigantic caterpillar pool float is cool! Built with 3 air chambers for extra support and it even has handles. Again, this isn't for small children; recommended ages are 8 and up. And let's be honest, you know you're going to ride this thing too!

Gecko Pool Float

This pool float from Intex is in the shape of a gecko, which boys will love, but colored very prettily, which girls will love. An all around good choice for any family! It's got handles for safety and the recommend ages are 3 and up.
