If an inflatable pool doesn't quite sound like the summer fun you were hoping for this season, there's an affordable option available on Amazon that might just change your mind. For one, it's big enough that you and your kids can fit in it comfortably with room to spare, but perhaps more important: It's less than $50. Did I mention it has more than 1,200 reviews, too?
From Intex (the brand behind just about all of the bestselling swimming pools on Amazon), the Swim Center Inflatable Family Lounge Pool measures 88 inches long by 85 inches wide and 30 inches high, has a water capacity of 156 gallons, and is suitable for ages 3 and up. An upgrade from your basic inflatable pool, this model features a bench along the back—perfect if you're a parent who wants to lounge while your kids splash around. The pool also features two air chambers, both of which have a combo valve to make inflation and deflation quick and easy. And as a handy bonus, it also features two built-in cupholders.
If this particular pool isn't exactly what you're looking for or you need a different size, you can check out other bestsellers from Amazon here.
