If you’re old enough to remember when “playing in the sprinkler” just meant running through the sprinkler that also watered the lawn, get ready to be jealous of kids today.
Sam’s Club is selling a massive Inflatable Fire Hydrant Sprinkler that stands over 6 feet tall. The sprinkler only requires a garden hose and inflates quickly using a pump. Made of vinyl to withstand lots of use, the fire hydrant sprinkler sprays water from the top and both sides, so no matter where your kids run, they’ll be sprayed.
It is made for ages 3 and up, and because it’s so tall, it would easily work for us adult-sized kids, too. You can get it in Sam’s Club stores or online, if you have a Sam’s Club membership, for just $29.98.
Sam’s Club has dozens of other summer accessories as well, from outdoor furniture to a variety of pool floats, like this floating beer pong pool float or this gigantic airplane float that holds six people and comes equipped with cup holders and two built-in coolers.
The warehouse club also has a handful of ride-on animal pool floats for under $15. For $14.98, you can get a 4.5-foot-long dinosaur, flamingo, shark or unicorn. You’ll also find mesh ride-on floats that come in 12 different animals, including a unicorn, dragon, seahorse, walrus, narwhal and clownfish.
Measuring 7.5 feet tall and 66 inches in diameter, the rocket ship sprinkler has four nozzles and a 360-degree water spray. Priced at $69, it is for ages 3 and up, connects to a standard garden hose and inflates in minutes.
Sprinklers sure have come a long way over the years! Will you be buying your kids a fun sprinkler to keep them cool this summer?
