Ages: 3 and up

Coming in next for the best kids’ sprinklers in 2016 is a new one from Melissa & Doug – the Sunny Patch Splash Patrol Sprinkler.

Bunches of splashing fun, this sprinkler, nicknamed the Sunny Patch, has a cute design that starts with a green patch of grass with a bunch of funny, wormy wrigglers on top.

The wiggling, colorful grubs spout water in every direction.

What fun! 🙂

3. Little Tikes Super Spiral Sprinkler

Ages: 3 and up

Third up among this year’s best kids’ toy water sprinklers is the Little Tikes Super Spiral – a returning favorite.

Aptly named, the Super Spiral Sprinkler is a towering water-shooter for summertime fun. There are four plastic balls that kids can add to the top of the spiral, allowing a powerful, jetted stream to keep the balls in the air.

4. ZPur Fire Hydrant Garden Hose Sprinkler

Next is the ZPur Fire Hydrant Garden Hose Sprinkler.

This sprinkler is so cute!

Hook him up to a water hose and this fire hydrant is good to go.

Donning a funny expression, this sprinkler reminds me of a cartoony character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Spins and splashes!

5. Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler

Ages: 3 and up

A returning pick among the top 10 kids’ sprinklers in 2016 is another from Melissa & Doug – the Sunny Patch Blossom Bright.

Another Sunny Patch favorite from Melissa and Doug. The Blossom Bright sprinkler is an all-time favorite that I have featured on several summertime lists in the past. The grassy green base is dotted with water-sprinkling flowers in shades of pink.

6. Small World Toys Geyser Blast Sprinkler

Ages: 3 and up

At 6th on the list – the Geyser Blast Sprinkler from Small World Toys.

Reminiscent of what sprinklers used to look like in the 80s. This sprinkler, dubbed the Geyser, fires off jet-streams of cold water in looping, twirling, swirling directions. In other words, the spray action is unpredictable, making it twice as fun.

One for the TMNT fans! Eigth place of the ten best kids’ toy water sprinklers is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Spin and Spray.

I remember there was a similar Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle sprinkler in the 90s, but this one has a revamped look. Powered with water, this turtle moves his arms in crazy ninja moves, shooting streams in unpredictable directions while spinning.
