The Most Epic Summer Water Toys for Hours of Backyard Fun

Finally: School is out for summer! But now what? Well, kids may want to hit the snooze button a few extra times each morning. And/or, you know, they might want to just stay glued to their iPad for hours on end (no surprise there). But it’s up to parents to remind those little lazybones that summertime won’t stick around for long. With the help of a lot of sunshine and the coolest water toys that are guaranteed to make a backyard splash, there’s plenty of summer fun to be had outside.

Kids, parents, babysitters, and other kids-at-heart have likely seen — and dreamed of playing under — last year’s popular gigantic sprinkler unicorn. (ICYMI, this large water toy transformed backyards across the country into mini-aqua parks. It was epic.) And this year, there are even more major water toys to get your kiddos excited for hours of backyard shenanigans in the sprinkler or pool.
