There are certain dos and don'ts that you must learn before you buy any pool toys or the money that you spend can all go to waste. How can this be and after all its only pool toys? Keep reading and you will learn.

No Bats of Any Type

Don't bring any type of plastic bat toys into your pool. Baseball games soon end when the ball is blasted out of the yard or taken by a dog and then the kids just end up using the bat to assault each other with it until someone ends up with a bloody nose or a swollen purple eye. So all bats or bat-like toys are a no-no.

No Heavy Balls

Basketball or water polo games are always a big hit but make sure that you never bring a heavy ball into your pool that is meant for a field. Kids will be beaning each other on the head and face with any ball that finds its way in to the pool and a heavy ball such as a basketball can harm a child.

Marco Polo

Take a pair of comfortable swim goggles and paint then black. Kids just love to play €marco-polo€ and need something to block the vision of the main player. This blinded player then pursues the other players around the pool trying to catch one. Every time he calls out €marco€ they have to say €polo€ which allows this player to track them with sound only.

Large Inflatable Pool Toys

Also now there are a number of larger inflatable pool toys that are now available that are quite affordable to buy. For instance you can now buy an inflatable pool slide for around $100. There is even an inflatable pool slide that is designed to float in the water like a €slide island€.
