11 ultimate pool floats you need this summer

The new summer trend is here, and we’re in love.

Lazing by the pool (or in it) is a fundamental part of enjoying summer for many Aussies. But this year it’s not the luxe sunnies, crochet bikinis or gladiator sandals that will score you cool points with your squad. Instead, this year’s must-have on-trend summer pool party accessory is extravagant, bright and larger-than-life inflatable pool floats.
They’re basically the coolest pool toys for children and grown-ups alike, and we’ve found 11 you need in your life, like yesterday.

While the sausages are sizzling on the barbeque, it’s a battle of the buns in the pool. Hop aboard your inflatable hot dogs and use the ketchup or mustard floats as boppers to whack the loser off the float and into the water.

11. T-Rex, Inflatique
