10 Inflatable Sprinklers Kids Will Love This Summer
Stay cool while staying close to home with these sprinklers shaped like giant unicorns, pandas, sea turtles, sharks and more.
When you're a kid, there's nothing better than that moment when your parent suddenly sets up the sprinkler in the backyard and gives you permission to scream, splash and play for hours. And when you're an adult with kids of your own? There's nothing better than that moment when you set up the sprinkler, sit back and let the littles wear themselves out.
Seriously, it's the ultimate parenting hack. (And it doesn't hurt that sprinklers have gotten so much cuter in the last few years.) If you're on the hunt for something fun that will keep the kiddos cool and hold their attention for longer than an afternoon, these special inflatable sprinklers should do the trick. Though unbelievably large, almost all of them cost less than $50.
Summer is in session, and the family definitely deserves a tropical "vacation." Bring a taste of the beach to your backyard with this palm tree-shaped sprinkler. Once fully inflated, the sprinkler stands at five-feet-tall and sprays water straight from the top.
Part sprinkler, part splash pad, part kiddie pool, this 68-inch inflatable setup offers plenty of different ways to cool off. A friendly sea turtle with jellyfish friends decorates the durable, PVC bottom so the littles can feel like they're scuba diving.
Are the kids begging for a trip to the zoo? Just lead them to this giant, pink, elephant-shaped sprinkler waiting in the backyard. Standing at an incredible seven feet and capable of spraying water out of its trunk, this massive water toy will make your kids feel like they're seeing one of their favorite animals up close.
I'm no meteorologist, but I'm predicting sunny skies and even sunnier attitudes up ahead with this giant arch-style sprinkler. Fluffy white clouds anchor the bright yellow band on both sides, while water shoots out from the center to create a "summer shower."
Give your kiddos a good reason to scream as they run through the water with this adorable monster-shaped sprinkler. Perched on its hind legs, the double-horned, polka-dotted creature seems to deliver a fearsome roar that actually releases water into the air.
Make your kids' summer a little more magical with this inflatable unicorn sprinkler. Water sprays out of the silver horn for a waterfall-like effect that kiddos can sprint through for hours on end. They'll love the sweet face, the rainbow mane and tail, and will definitely beg you to set it up ASAP.
If anyone knows how to make a splash, it's a sea turtle. Featuring one of Lilly Pulitzer's signature floral prints in bright pink, this inflatable turtle-shaped sprinkler is perfect summer. Water sprays out from the shell, helping your little cutie stay cool on the hottest afternoons.
Okay, so this sprinkler is just as much a treat for you as it is for the kids. Hilariously designed to look like a shark, this arch-style sprinkler will send your kids running right into the mouth of Jaws. To really wear them out, you could even use this sprinkler to start a round or two of Sharks and Minnows.
