Cool Off with an Awesome Outdoor Water Toy

Aug 17, 2007
Outdoor water toys hold a special place in my heart. I have many fond memories of growing up under the hot California summer sun with great water toys. My arsenal included everything from massive water grenades to Super Soakers to Slip n Slides. All of my school friends used to venture over to my home each and every weekend to play with all of my goodies and cool off during the hottest days during the summer. While our water bill was probably astronomical, none of us cared, as we were all having far too much fun outside. Even though we could have trapped ourselves inside and had hours of fun playing videogames on out Nintendo, we really enjoyed heading outdoors simply so that we could play in the water. After all, what kid does not enjoy getting wet on a hot summer day? If you are tired of having your kids sit around the house all summer long when you feel that they should be outside enjoying themselves, you definitely need a wide variety of outdoor water toys to help motivate them to head outside.

A small kiddy pool is the first outdoor water toy that you should consider purchasing for your kids. Short of running through the sprinklers, this is the single best way to cool off on a hot day if you do not already own an inground or above ground pool. These kid pools come in a multitude of shapes and sizes and are great for all sorts of youngsters. All you have to do is inflate it, position it in your backyard and then fill it full of water to provide your kids with hours of fun.

As far as squirt guns go, you should avoid all of those realistic looking pieces that look like handguns and stick with something that has been tried and tested over the past decade or so. The Super Soaker brand of squirt gun is what you should be looking for. With their massive range of prices, you can find these guns in just about any toy store. From the weaker guns that only hold a little bit of water to much more powerful items that almost look like high tech water based flamethrowers, there are tons of these toys that are perfect for kids of all ages. There is nothing like a great water fight in your backyard during a hot summer day, and no water fight would be complete without a Super Soaker squirt gun in each kids hands.
