Cactus Ring Toss

We love this ring toss game because you can either play it in the pool or out in the yard. Adorable inflatable cacti are 10, 20, 30 or 40 points and even comes with a patch kit in case you should have any aggressive gamers.

Floating Serving Tray

This handy pool tool is fabulous and functional. Use this floating tray to serve snacks or custom cocktails. Float out some fruit to the kiddos for a mid-swim snack, or use it as a floating cooler to hold beverages during the day.

Floating Flamingo Speaker

Do you need a floating flamingo speaker? Yes, you do. In fact, we think you might need a few of these adorable babies if you really take your pool parties seriously. Float the flamingos around in the pool and crank up your summer playlist.

Underwater Camera

This underwater camera uses 35mm film (how retro!) and includes a wrist strap for safety. Buy a few of these for a kids' birthday pool party, and give them some fun underwater challenges to photograph. You can get the photos developed afterward and send them to everyone in your thank you cards.

Beer Stein Raft

You know what's super fun and summery? Floating on a beer stein float while drinking your own beer. If you're summer brew-obsessed, then you need a raft like this. Best of all, the stein's handle is a drink holder so you can balance your beer while you float the day away.
