Why we love it: Nothing screams summer like a slice of cold watermelon in the sun, and this fun, watermelon-inspired paddling pool is just the thing for sprucing up your garden during the warmer months. Made from BPA-free PVC, this large, inflatable pool comes complete with a thick, bubble base layer for added comfort, and has three separate valves which make it really easy to inflate and deflate. When you pump it up, this paddling pool inflates into three separate air rings, which measure in at around 30cm high. These separate rings make the structure really stable and an absolute breeze to fill with water – simply add your favourite parasol, and you’ll be set!
