Kids and adults alike love the water so what better way to bring the excitement and enjoyment to a higher level than playing with fun water toys?
There are many types of water toys for the lake. If kids have endless fun with water guns, water sprinklers, and pool toys, adults also have their share of grown-up toys.
In the past, inflatable canoes, fishing canoes, and kayaks were so much a hassle to fill with air and leaks were such a common problem. Today’s lifestyle, though, echoes of convenience and ease. These outdoor water toys are now created with long-lasting materials and they are manufactured with better designs.
Exploring a placid river or fishing in a stream aboard an inflatable canoe or fishing canoe is certainly fun.
There are many designs of swimming pool slides that can fit the size of your pool and deck space.
The most desirable features of pool slides include a high-volume water delivery system that can further enhance the experience of sliding.
Since kids will continually be charging up and down these water slides, take note of its safety features including an enclosed ladder with non-slip treads and sturdy handrails.
Depending on your space and fancy, a pool slide can stand alone or be integrated into your pool. When picking out your pool slide, pick out one which can easily be set up and durable with inflatable bases to assure stability.
Swimming Pool Loungers
A perfect part of a summer day is a relaxing time spent lazing in your swimming pool lounger. Durable and long-lasting swimming pool loungers now come in all shapes and sizes.
Most swimming pool loungers are designed with air-filled tubes which can serve two purposes—to be used as a comfortable seat as well as make the lounger float on water.
Some pool loungers are long and allow complete body relaxation while soaking in the sun’s warmth. Some are designed as floating chairs with umbrellas while some are designed as acupressure loungers. There are also state-of-the-art swimming pool loungers which are fitted with ultra-powerful motorized propellers which enables you to have steering control. This type is perfect for your outings in the lake.
Fun Lake Toys For Adults
Fishing canoes come in various materials. When buying one, your important considerations should include its material, length, stability, capacity, and the price.
Fishing canoes are now made up of durable materials. You can take your pick from aluminum, Kevlar, royalex, fiberglass, aluminum alloy, or royalite. Depending on your need, there is a 10’ or smaller for individual paddlers, 14-15’ is suitable for two people, while 4 people can easily fit in a 16-18 feet canoe.
Fishing canoe price range from $300-$1500.
Inflatable canoes are now more popular than the wooden ones.
Compared to their older counterparts, inflatable canoes are made of lightweight materials and are more stable in the water, with excellent manuererability.
These canoes, which are usually made with a tough nylon cover can comfortably accommodate two persons. Most inflatable canoes has a maximum weight capacity of 500 pounds and it is even well-matched with a 12-volt trolling motor which can be used for fishing purposes.
If you are in the market for a kayak, you will have a hard time deciding what kayak to choose because these come in a variety of sizes, materials, and shapes. However, if you know what you want and you have already a price range in mind, then it will much easier. The best kayak is a perfect mix of stability, comfort and performance.
Water Toys And Floats
Inflatable water toys are perfect for your pool parties. Whether you have an inflatable or permanent pool, inflatable water toys and floats provide the whole family with endless hours of fun and enjoyment.
Nothing beats the fun and excitement of being in a towable tube.
People who have experienced the thrill of towable tubes all say that it is one exciting package of knee boarding, wakeboarding and skiing. Whether you want to ride alone or get one which can accommodate twelve people, towable tubes in the market come in different designs and sizes to fit your needs and your budget.
There are towable tubes which are priced at around a hundred dollars and there are the top of the line that can reach a thousand dollars.
Lake Toys Slide
This is a classic and you’re bound to see one of these slides during your vacation at the lake.
There are inflatable slides just like the ones that you see at the swimming pool but if you want to make it very challenging, the Aviva Rock slider is the one to buy.
Or you can get one of those huge water slides and really make a statement when you put it out in the lake.
Inflatable Island Raft Or Lake Lounges
Do you want to chill at the lake with family and friends? Do you want your own little island raft with space for all your drinks?
Then have a look at these giant inflatable rafts that can have as many as 12 people on it.
This usually includes a place for everyone to sit on and an accessory for your food and drinks while out in the middle of the lake.
It’s a great place to chat with friends while having the option to jump into the lake at will. Great for sunbathing too..
Lake Toy Trampolines
Like a trampoline that you have in your own backyard, these lake trampolines are also a lot of fun for kids and adults at the lake.
Expect everyone to bounce on and off this thing for many hours.
The added bonus of possibly ending in the water is also part of the fun.
Lake Floating Toys
Of course, swimming will still be the first activity of many people at the lake and it’s only right to have some lake toys for floating around.
A cool floating toy that adults especially love are the sun loungers. These are not your ordinary lilo but these come complete with a canopy, a beer holder and space for two.
Other lake floating toys are pool noodles and inflatable water ride-ons.
Last year, the most popular inflatable water ride on were the huge pink/flamingos or unicorns. You must have seen them everywhere you went that had a body of water in it. Ha!
This year, I wonder what it’s going to be!
These are not for the faint of heart but it’s great for those who want a little (or a lot!) of adrenaline rush.
These are great fun and you can even find towable tubes that both children and adults can enjoy at the lake at the same time.
Some of the ones that I like are the Airhead towable tube, the Big Bertha, and the Sportsstuff Big Mable.

The Water Blob
The water blob became popular when it was featured in a tv advertisement.
Surprisingly enough, there aren’t a lot of stores selling this thingama blob, so finding one may prove to be very difficult.
Whether you want to go fishing at the lake or just paddle along with friends and family, inflatable boats are loads of fun. And quite relaxing too, strangely enough.
Getting on an inflatable kayak was one of the highlights of our lake holiday one year.
My 4 year old son even got on it and enjoyed it a lot.
He’s still talking about it now.
You’ll be amazed just how durable these inflatable boats are. We have the Sevylor inflatable sit on top kayak and it’s very strong and dependent. You’ll feel secure when you’re inside it.
Other popular brands for kayaks/boats/rafts are Intex, Rave and Sea Eagle.
Mega Sling shot Kit
Oh what is this? I would say. But I’m sure many in your family will find this a lot of fun.
These mega sling shots are not only fun but are also great for pretend play! Kids can pretend they’re medieval knights or perhaps birds bombing the King pig.
Go under water and see wildlife in the lake with the sea scooter.
It’s light, it runs at a very good speed and you get to see the part of the lake not many people see.
