If you have ever been unfortunate enough to leave your inflatable-pool-buying efforts until the warm weather is in full swing, and trekked unhappily from one sold out store to the next, you’ll understand why we’re getting in early with our backyard pool suggestions. With the added uncertainly over whether we’ll be stuck at home, and the lingering supply issues, if you are planning on cooling off in the comfort of your own backyard this spring and summer, we think it might be wise to bag yourself a pool now, while you still can.
Our team of mums, and their kids, have picked out the inflatable pools that will deliver the most fun as we move into the warmer weather, and as you’ll see, no matter what your budget or backyard size, there is something that is sure to delight both young and old.
N.B. Hey, we know you know, but we still feel duty bound to remind you to NEVER leave children unattended around water. A baby. toddler or child can drown in just 5cm of water.
