Editor's Notes

April 22, 2020:

On long summer days, these inflatable pools with slides can provide hours of fun in the sun, and many come with added fun features like tunnels, water-shooting cannons, and ball hoops. Today we added in the large, bright green Blast Zone Crocodile Isle, which is made with safety in mind, featuring high walls, wide ramps with handrails, and strong reinforced polyester oxford. It’s also got a protective netting on top for safety. For another model that’s packed with fun features, look to the newly added Costzon Water Park, on which kids can climb the rock walls, slide down two slides, shoot hoops, and spray each other with the cannon. It’s a cinch to set up and take down, and a hose assembly kit is included.

If you’ve got younger tots, you can entertain them for hours on end with the heavy-duty vinyl Summer Waves Under the Sea, which comes with three friendly inflatable creatures. The dolphin serves as a slide, while the red and yellow crab can squirt water, and kids can toss the included rings onto its claws. Kids can float along with the orange and white clown fish. The floor is covered with colorful graphics, and it comes with a handy repair patch, so with proper care you should be able to get seasons’ worth of use out of it. The Blast Zone Pirate Bay is great for little ones with loads of imagination, as they can go on a seafaring adventure in their own backyard, thanks to the two water cannons, pirate slide, tunnel, and large splash area.

For safety’s sake, children using inflatable pools need to be supervised at all times. For large gatherings, you can designate a “water watcher” adult and rotate different volunteers for this position as the day goes on. Check the pool prior to each use to make sure there aren’t any tears or damage, and make sure it’s inflated fully before children start to play in it. Once the fun is done, immediately deflate it and drain the water to ensure no one makes their way into it unsupervised. Once it’s deflated and dry, fold it up and store it safely away.
