1. Swimways Toypedo Bandits

Ages: 5 and up

Not over-surprisingly, Swimways Toypedo Bandits return to list of the top 10 swimming pool toys in 2016 – at #1.

These Bandits are dive, dive, diving into action! There are four bandits, each with a quirky, weird, sometimes monstrous expression, and featuring different, bright colors. Kiddos throw the 30-feet divers into a swimming pool, then dive to retrieve them again.

2. SwimWays Star Wars Light Sabre Dive Sticks

Ages: 5-15

A sure-fire hit among the best swimming pool toys this year – Star Wars Light Sabre Dive Sticks.

As a big Star Wars fan, I love these dive sticks! Designed with lightsabers in mind, these dive sticks light up to show divers where they are at the bottom of the swimming pool. One is green for Yoda, and the other is blue for Luke Skywalker. Lights are water-activated!

This inflatable basketball hoop floats on top of water, giving swimming basketball players ample opportunity to make the winning basket. The miniature basketball is textured for easier grip with wet hands. Includes a nifty twist-and-fold storage system and carrying case.

4. Water Sports Swim Thru Rings

Ages: 8-10

My personal favorite pick among 2016’s “best of” pool toys – Water Sports Swim Thru Rings.

Swim Thru Rings are making a comeback! These rings were so popular when I was a kid, especially when daring superstars, like Evel Knievel, would leap through hoops mid-air on a motorcycle. Though these rings are way safer, of course.

5. SwimWays Fish Styx Diving Game

Ages: 5 and up

Another great swimming pool toy from SwimWays hits 5th on the list with the Fish Styx Diving Game.

So bright, flexible, and pretty! These fishy divers are sinkers, “swimming” to the bottom of the pool so kiddos can fish them out again. Great for building diving and swimming skills. Doubles as a fun, colorful bath-time toy for toddlers.

6. Max Liquidator Monster Blaster

Ages: 3 and up

The Max Liquidator Monster Blaster is a highly entertaining addition to the top ten swimming pool toys this year.

When I was a kid, I had a recurring nightmare about crocodiles, alligators, and swamps. Shivers! Though I think this Crocodile Monster Blaster would have been a welcome addition to our swimming pool. Measuring 24-inches long, and made from lightweight PVC, this blaster launches streams of water up to 30-feet.

7. Paw Patrol 3D Beach Ball

Ages: 4 and up

Hey Paw Patrol fans! The 3D Beach Ball also makes it to the list of the best swimming pool toys for kids in 2016.

Simple and fun, this beach ball is designed with Paw Patrol in mind. Characters from the smash-hit television cartoon are all over this beach ball. Kids will certainly create neat-o games to play. Or, there is always volleyball or catch.

8. Intex Underwater Dive Sticks

Ages: 6 and up

Intex Underwater Dive Sticks mark a place at #8 of the top kids’ swimming pool toys on this list.

Vibrant and easier to grip than most diving sticks, these are soft, flexible, lightweight, and unique. What makes them different, you ask? When these sticks sink, they stand straight up, giving kids a diving advantage because of the grab-and-go factor.

Fun, fun, fun! I used to be a part of a volleyball team when I was a teenager, but I think this swimming volleyball game would have been a thousand times more fun. Includes an inflatable volleyball and floating net.
