Criteria Used for Evaluation

Safety

Coming up with our top ten list of best pool toys in today’s market wasn’t going to be easy. To help parents from spending hours of their limited free time doing research on which pool toy is the best for their children, we took everything into consideration for you. For our list, we knew it wasn’t going to be an easy task. We took everything into consideration from safety, how beneficial these toys can be for your children. We also looked at everything from what was the highest rated to which toys customers were overly satisfied with. We also looked into everything from customer feedback not just with the positive reviews, but we even looked into the negative ones as well.

Educational Value

Durability

All pool accessories get wet in one way or another when used, whether it be a huge inflatable floating raft or a small floating tugboat for toddlers. That means that pool toys tend to be at higher risk for mildew, mold, or rust over time. We tried to select swimming pool toys that are relatively easy to dry out and clean, such as not having too many small unreachable parts. We even selected a couple items that are dishwasher safe, providing the opportunity for a deep clean and drying as a preventative against mold or bacteria build-up.

Parents, did you know?

We only wanted toys on our list that could support children and help them float along the water. However, it is recommended that with certain floating devices that parents pay attention to the weight capacity that each device can hold. Every toy on our list is 100% safe for your children to use and enjoy their time in the pool with.

Parents, did you know?

We know how hard it can be for parents to get their children away from screens especially when it’s such a nice day out so one-way parents can encourage their child to be active is with swimming and water play activities. Having pool toys while your child is swimming around can make swimming more entertaining for them where all they will want to do during the summer is hang out by the pool.

Parents, did you know?

Each of these toys is beneficial to your child because they will promote your children to have an active lifestyle. Not only will they get your child moving but your child will enjoy those hot days of summer because they’ll be able to splash around and enjoy time in the pool.

Parents, did you know?

The larger floating toys such as the Shootball and volleyball game are all made with non-toxic materials that can be placed in the sun to dry out before storing. As with all toys and products, they will uphold quality best over time with proper care. This includes not leaving pool toys in the pool when they aren’t in use. These types of precautions ensure the longevity of your pool toys, and we made sure that the toys on this list aren’t high-maintenance in terms of promoting cleanliness.

Parents, did you know?

Swimming is absolutely a physical activity that involves movements of the entire body and changes in the heart rate. The level of intensity of physical activity depends on what a child is doing in the pool, but it is absolutely a great activity to promote exercise and a healthy lifestyle.

Other Factors to Consider

Compatibility

All of the toys we included on the list are gender-neutral, which means that they are not decorated or designed to target boys or girls specifically. Gender-neutral toys are not marketed for specifically one gender or the other. Many toys are marketed for boys or for girls by including “feminine” or “masculine” colors and designs, and using only boys or only girls for advertising purposes. This sends the message to children that they are “supposed” to have certain interests based on gender-based stereotypes, and might even limit a child’s exploration of the world. Instead, gender-neutral toys send the message to children that they can play with whatever toys they want and they can be whoever they want to be.

Physical Development

Every parent wants to make sure that they give their child educational toys so that they can help their child's developmental levels. Each toy on our top ten list of best pool toys encourages physical activity for your children. Some of these even require your child to jump, catch, throw and of course swim. Physical activities and exercising in a pool will help your child going strong, healthy bodies and will even encourage your child towards an active lifestyle.

Materials

Safety is important especially when it comes to swimming. When toys are involved with water play safety becomes a top main concern for parents. We wanted to make sure that we had a list of toys that all were 100% safe for your children to use. These toys were mostly made with plastic like materials or foam. While it’s stated that some plastic and foam toys can contain harmful chemicals like BPA and other phthalates, we made sure that each toy on our list was made of nothing but safe materials.

Frequently Asked Questions

q: Do any of the plastic pool toys contain BPA?
a:

Absolutely not. None of the toys included on this list contain any BPA, a chemical which has been shown to be harmful when exposed to children. We always pick toys with safety and health in mind.

q: Do these toys require parental supervision?
a:

Although the toys are considered safe for children, it is important that there is always a responsible adult, parent, or lifeguard supervising kids in the pool.

q: Can I leave the toys in the pool when my kids aren’t using them?
a:

Leaving water toys in the pool, usually in chlorinated water and in the sun, can degrade the pool toys at a faster rate than storing them in a dry, shady place.

q: Do the toys by Green Toys degrade over time since they are made of recycled milk jugs?
a:

Nope. The milk jugs are recycled and then processed into a durable material called high-density polyethylene that displays the same sturdiness as other similar hard plastic toys.
