14 Fun Pool Floaties for Summer

Sure, a backyard swimming pool is enticing, but add the visual pop of color and promise of good times floating on a giant piece of food or goofing around with your friends, and it becomes almost irresistable. Another use: as a fun and glamorous prop for selfies and Instapics on social media sites and apps like Instagram, Snapchat, and VSCO. 

Fill your pool or yard with a few of these inflatables, and get ready for an instant party and pictures. Who doesn't look adorable floating on a giant...MORE pink-frosted donut with sprinkles, or a big piece of pizza?

    • Although two adults are pictured on the float, it has a 140-pound weight capacity, meaning it can only accommodate one adult or two kids.
