10 Water Toys for Toddlers You Need This Summer
Busy Ball Play Table
Grub Scouts Kids’ Sprinkler
Rainbow Inflatable Play Center
Spiralin’ Seas Waterpark Water Table
Water table toys for toddlers are a surefire hit! The big draw of the Little Tikes Spiralin’ Seas Waterpark option is the spiral slide in the middle that balls go down. Completing the action-packed aquatic scene is the wheel, powered by water poured into a funnel. Ages 24 months to 5 years.
Sprinkle Splash Play Mat
Connect the Banzai Sprinkle Splash Play Mat to your hose, and water starts spurting and sprinkling up out of it. What could be more delightful to a 2 year old? At 4.5 feet across, the mat is big enough for your toddler to share the fun with a buddy. This gets our vote for best bang for the buck (it retails around $12), even if you only get one season out of it. Ages 18 months to 3 years.
Arenä Pop-up Beach Pool
Your baby will have a ball cooling off at the shore—even when you don’t feel like sitting at the water’s edge with him. Just dig a small hole in the sand next to your blanket, drop in the bblüv Arenä Pop-up Beach Pool, and fill it with water using the included bucket. When the sun is setting, fold it up and tuck it into its carry bag. Ages 6 to 18 months.
Dinosaur Inflatable Play Center
Here’s the plan: Send your toddler off with your partner, set up the Intex Dinosaur Inflatable Play Center while he’s gone, and then lead him to the backyard with his eyes covered. The reaction, we’ll wager, will be your most loved Instagram story. Essentially a mini water park, the cushion on the pool floor makes it comfy. This best water toy for toddlers even includes inflatable fish for kids to try to catch. Ages 2 to 4.
Baby Spring Float Splash Station
Every newbie water baby needs a good float. The SwimWays Baby Spring Float Splash Station has a sun canopy, and is nice and wide and super sturdy, so it will be easy for you to pull around the pool. The water toy for todders also brings the fun factor in the form of a whale and starfish that squirt water. Ages 9 to 24 months.
