10 best paddling pools
Be sure the children make a splash in the heatwave in one of these play areas. Some have space for bigger kids, too
Wednesday 23 July 2014
Whether your kids want a mellow waddle in a few inches of water or an adrenalin-rushed water slide in their own garden, our paddling pool round-up has it covered.
From the Early Learning Centre Ring Pool (£4) to Little Tikes Slam N Curve Inflatable Water Slide (£299), we’ve catered for every budget and we’ve also been sure to include options that are both longstanding classics and brand new offerings for this year.
Sometimes it’s not just the kids that need to cool down on hot summer days. There’s good news here too as the Tesco Family Paddling Pool and Intex Easy Set Swimming Pool are roomy enough for Mum and Dad to get in too.

The Bestway Basketball Play Pool is a great variation on a theme as you get to do sport and have a paddle at the same time. We also love the Slip N Slide Whitewater Extreme Boogie, which will keep kids giggling for hours on end.
