Kiddie pools are cool now. That’s right. Those inflatable round little 55-60 inch diameter pools you fill with a garden hose? They were always ugly. Pale blue, sometimes with cartoon fish on them. Not anymore. Now you’ll find them as chic and stylish “wading pools” or “splash pools” for adults. Here’s a look at a few of the brands targeting grown-ups with the inexpensive inflatable pools.
Cool Kiddie Pools For Adults
We’ve been atop the revolution of artsy and pop culture inflatable rafts, curating a list of the coolest pool floats available on Amazon and featuring Artist-designed pool floats on the blog. But in the past year or so –perhaps spurred on by record heat temperatures and climbing housing costs– the ‘kiddie pool’ has become a stylish accoutrement for cooling off.
The FUNBOY brand, founded in Venice Beach, CA is at the top of the list when it comes to cool-looking inflatable kiddie pools. We especially love the Italian Tiles and Mellow Yellow ones because they remind us of designer Alexander Girard. Below are some of their most recent designs:
Poolcandy is another brand that offers kiddie pools designed to appeal to adults in fruits, florals and glitter.
MinniDip is another brand focused on selling smaller inflatable pools to grown ups.
