Fills quickly, especially considering the large water capacity. With 4 cushioned seats and backrests, this comfortably sized lounging pool lets kids or adults sit, splash, lounge and play while enjoying the outdoors. Well-sized for a lawn or patio. Drain plug for faster draining. Comes with a repair patch for holes.
Some have problems with the air plug leaking, or other hard-to-find leaks that make the pool unable to hold air.
This is what many people grew up with as a backyard kiddie splash pool. Simple to use, lightweight, made of soft material and uber affordable, this little splash pool is great for yards, patios and other areas that have limited space available. Best for one or two small children.
Suggested age of use begins at two. With just over 6 inches of water depth, it’s too deep for anyone younger than that.
This pool features two small seats, and a molded bottom for better traction. There's an accompanying sun umbrella that can be attached to offer shade, and included funnel cups and a water wheel for in-pool play activities. We like that it is designed for a slightly wider age range than many kiddie pools meant for infants or toddlers only, which means you'll be able to get more use out of it.
Hard plastic and no drain makes it slightly more difficult to empty than a soft vinyl pool. On the small side.
With a small splash pool that includes a removable full shade tent (front opening), featuring 50+ UPF protection, this product ensures baby doesn't miss out on the fun at the beach. Made of a lightweight material, this is easy to carry, easy to assemble, and is built with pegs to help anchor everything to the sand. Water can be easily dumped out and the lightweight material dries so baby can lie in the shade for a nap.
Slightly more expensive than a typical splash pool. Designed primarily for infants/toddlers only. Can be tricky to package up.
This is a heavy-duty, solid pool. With a very large, removable, UV-blocking shade, everyone in the pool can be covered without having views completely obstructed. Pool can hold several people at once comfortably, and will hold up for a longer time than softer models, which can rip and tear more easily. Attaching a hose creates an inside-roof water sprayer, for an additional cooling effect on those extra hot days.
Large size not a great fit for very small yards/spaces. With the size and ability to fill deep, infants and small toddlers should be closely supervised. Can take a long time and a lot of water to fill.

There is nothing better on a hot sunny day than splashing around with the family, and the best low-commitment way to cool off is with a kiddie pool. They are quick and easy to set up, take down, and store away, so if you are low on space, a kiddie pool is a perfect option for sweltering summer heat. Designs range from the classic, simple circular shape made to hold a few kids to more elaborate versions with spots for adults to lounge as well. You can choose from a soft vinyl material that inflates create the walls, or sturdier hard plastic versions that come with umbrellas and toys. It is important to note the age recommendations listed by the manufacturer, and never leave children unattended while the kiddie pool has water in it.
