Still trying to beat the heat? Or to get your kids outside? Perhaps you’re hosting this year’s family reunion, and need some entertainment ideas that’ll appeal across all age groups. No sweat! Here are our five top-selling outdoor games, toys and pool floats… each and every one guaranteed to make this a summer to remember.
38″ Chocolate Donut Pool Float ($16.99)
At only $16.99, it’s no surprise that this has been one of Oh Goodie Goodies’ best-selling floats. Made by reputable float specialists, Sol Coastal, this chocolate and rainbow-sprinkled donut pool float is 3’ wide, so perfect for little swimmers, and super-easy to pack up and take along on a poolside vacay. Made of quality, super-thick and durable vinyl, it’s an investment that’ll last for many summers to come.
Batter’s Box Take & Play Baseball Set ($69.99)
Family picnic in the park? Or perhaps you’re thinking of inviting some neighborhood buddies over a backyard playdate? Either way, this perfectly portable baseball set has everything you need to make it an afternoon to remember. Set up the adjustable batting tee for younger players, set out the bases, and smack those two safety baseballs outta the park… All you need to provide is the baseball bat (and, of course, the hot dogs for after). It’s a homerun!
Kids Croquet Set (4 Players) ($29.99)
Sized just right for small hands, this quality Crown Sporting Goods kiddie croquet set is perfect for four players. Well-priced and made of long-lasting materials, the set comes with four wooden mallets, each sized at 21.75″ long, four 1.75″ balls, two scoring stakes, a bunch of wickets, and a handy mesh easy bag for portability and storage. Harkening back to the English lawn games of centuries past, we love that so many families have rediscovered this simple, pleasurable game this summer.
Jumbo Sushi Roll Pool Float ($32.99)
This new addition to our pool float collection was an absolute hit this year. With its cute design of rice, seaweed and salmon, the jumbo sushi roll pool float certainly stands out from the unicorn and flamingo floats we’ve come to expect. Made of thick, durable, high-quality vinyl, it’s also perfectly sized at 4′ wide, making it comfortable for both kiddos and adults.
Indoor and Outdoor Horseshoe Game Set ($23.99)
Anyone looking for a family game that could be played on the lawn in summer and in the family room in winter, picked this classic 10-piece horseshoe game set. Sturdily made by Crown Sporting Goods, it comes with 4 stakes suitable for indoor and outdoor play, four well-weighted horseshoes, and a pair of stabilizing mats. It’s received rave reviews, and we’re pleased to confirm that all plastic components are non-toxic.
