The Best Water Toys, Trampolines, and Inflatables of 2016

Newsflash: Summer is right around the corner! Warmer weather, boating season, and time on the water is coming up. Let this be the year that YOU bring the fun to the lake or beach party.

The market for water toys and inflatables has grown tremendously over the years with many newcomers entering the market. Living near both the ocean and a major lake, I have tested my fair share of inflatable water toys and know which are fun, and which should stay off the market. Luckily for you, I have chosen the best of the best to ensure you have a safe and fun filled summer!

Let’s get started with my personal favorite…

Tropical Tahiti Floating Islandbest floating island

With seating for 6 and room for plenty more to hang off, this is the ultimate summer water toy. Drink holders, easy boarding, and sturdy construction ensure you are going to have a blast.

I am not holding back here! This is the ultimate in water fun and you will attract a crowd. The Rave Sports Aqua Jump Eclipse Water park includes the trampoline, the “Aqua launch”, and the roller log. All of these in of themselves are VERY fun water toys. Combined, you and your friends are going to have one heck of a summer. Pricey, but worth it to have a blob and trampoline in the same combo. Perfect for those with a dock or lake access!

This thing is hilarious and that is why it made the list. I have been on one and they truly do make anyone who sees it laugh. Did I mention they are super comfortable? With room for two, the giant swan from International Leisure is great a float or decoration. The wings or tail make great headrests and your family is bound to love it.

As I mentioned, there are THOUSANDS of inflatables on the market and I may have missed a few. If you are looking for similar items to that swan up there, click here. There are donuts,  pizzas, and even Unicorns! Feel free to leave any comments with anything I missed and enjoy the summer!
