Not Your Average Pool Toy – 5 Unique Pool Accessories
Naturally, the phrase “pool toy” brings children to mind. Yet pools are for adults too, and Mom and Dad need more than floating noodles or inflatable dolphins and sharks to have fun. Today, we’re going to highlight some pool toy options adults will love.
Food Floats and Remote-Controlled Snack Bars
Although it’s not a good idea to jump into the pool after a big steak dinner, snacks make pool use much more fun for adults and kids. One of this year’s trends is a remote-controlled snack and drink holder. It’s a round, floating device that can be summoned with the push of a button so you can get food or drink from anywhere in the pool. The basic model has space for four large cups and a bowl of snacks, such as chips and dips, in the center. To keep your drinks cold, you can try a floating ice cooler. For a more literal interpretation of this toy, try a large rubber float shaped like a pretzel or doughnut.
Floating Poker Table
Add a shot of luxury to your poker or other card games with a floating poker table. A plastic covering keeps your cards and chips safe, and the space around the table allows you to play while seated on large floats.
Do you like to work out in the pool but miss your favorite music because your iPod isn’t waterproof? Do your guests have trouble hearing the music at a pool party? With a floating speaker, these problems and others are easily solved. A small device, like the Audio Unlimited Floating Pool Speaker, keeps your iPod or other device safely tucked in a holder on shore while the water-resistant speaker floats in your pool for hours of music and fun.
Aquatic Light Shows
If you’re in the mood for a romantic adult swim with your partner or want to keep the pool party going once the kids are in bed, invest in a water-safe light show. This can be achieved with LED floating strobe lights or a floating fountain. Floating fountains can spray water up to 16 feet in the air in vibrant colors like blue, yellow, and red without the need for any special wiring. Most fountains simply attach to the pool’s return line and can be purchased for as little as $59.
Portable Basketball, Volleyball, or Ping Pong
These floating games are versatile enough for the whole family or during adults-only pool time. Try the NBA Logo Portable Basketball Game or the Anaconda Pool Volleyball System. These sets are made from durable steel and will last all swimming season, making them well worth the investment.
