Summer is around the corner and if last year taught us anything, it's to start preparing way ahead of time. That's why began my search for inflatable pools, floats and toys for our backyard now. Yes, the temps are still hovering in the lower 50s, the snow just melted and we are months away from daring to wear a swimsuit outside, but I'm ready for summer. I'm ready for playtime outside, for giggles, for the smell of sun lotion everywhere and for tons of backyard fun for kids and adults.

So, if you are searching for inflatable pools, toys and floaties for the kids (and honestly, for you as well, you deserve it) I've got you. All of these are currently available to purchase but don't snooze on checkout or you might miss out.

Here are some fun inflatable pools + toys for this summer:
