Get ready for a summer of fun with this line-up of tongue-in-cheek pool inflatables that will work just as well floating on a patio as they will on a bed of water.

Cancelled flights and travel chaos aren’t going to put a stop to our summer plans. Whether you’re staycationing in the UK, travelling abroad or are staying put on your balcony or in your garden, pool inflatables are more popular than ever.

No doubt a result of the fact that our holiday plans have been stopping and starting for much of the past two years, it would appear that we, the people, are taking it upon ourselves to create the summer we want, at long last (see also: hot girl summer.)

The best thing about a pool float is that it doesn’t actually require a pool. Instead, pop it on your patio for a cushioned sunbathing session or chill in front of the TV in the comfort of your living room. Whatever works for you!
