      @anonymous: Oh that would be a good one - I will look around. Have you considered making one? You could use a magnet on the end of your pole and glue magnets onto some plastic fish or items they have to fish for in the bottom of the pool. If you do that make sure to use water proof glue.

      These are great ideas!! But I still haven't found what I'm after :( a fishing game so a child can catch fish with a line from the side of the pool. Can you email me if anything like that comes up? Cheers

      This is funny, because when I was a kid swimming pool was everything to me. But you can never make me jump in one without my favorite swimming pool toy, which was my water gun. I could jump in to different barrier reef pools anytime and anywhere as long as I had my water gun with me. I'm sure you guys had your favorite pool toys as well that you just need to have whenever you're in the water.

      Well, you beat me to it. I was just thinking of doing a lens on the same thing because I am ready for our pool to be open and summer to be here. You have some great toys on here and I want one of everything especially that giant float. My grandson and his friends and I spend our summer in the pool playing and I will definitely be back to this lens. I did not think I would ever want to play another game of Marco Polo after last summer but I am ready! Great job.

      I would have loved the Submergency as a kid. We would spend lots of times finding things to toss in the pool to go diving after.
