Like that first haircut or day at school, the first dip into a kiddie pool is a rite of passage for so many of us. Picking out the right kiddie pool doesn’t have to be a headache though. We considered safety, stability of construction, and ease of assembly when studying these options. Here are four kiddie pools we recommend for your family.
Water never looked so inviting! This inflatable pool from Homech is super-sized but still safe enough for toddlers. It’s made with lead-free, BPA-free material and is 50 percent thicker than competing pools. It also benefits from a soft floor, which is good news for younger swimmers who tend to fall over more often. It can be inflated in less than 4 minutes with an electric pump (not included).
It’ll take you longer to pick out a swimsuit and lather up with sunscreen than it will to assemble this pool from Intex. It’s super durable thanks to a heavy-duty vinyl liner, which holds 639 gallons of water. You’ll want to empty it between uses or buy a filter pump (not included) to keep the pool spotless.
This pool is a kiddie delight featuring funnel cups, spinning water wheels, an umbrella stand, and comfy little seats built right into the pool. The best news for mom and dad? It’s easy and quick to assemble.
Those pets are just like kids to so many adults these days, so they need playtime in the water too. This portable pool from Jasonwell can be used by toddlers and pets alike. It’s built from extra-tough PVC (but trim those doggie nails before using it to be extra safe). It’s available in five sizes and can be assembled quickly and drained fast.
