If you’re lucky enough to have a pool—or have access to a pool—you’ll know that throwing a party is even better with water. Pool parties come with so many perks: fun cocktails, stylish swimsuits and (perhaps most importantly) cute pool floats. I’m talking about those giant pool floats you can actually fit on—the ones that are totally Instagram-approved and the perfect addition to any pool party. They’re a summer must-have, and I’m ready to fill my apartment complex’s pool with a dozen of them. (Sorry, neighbors!)

When I was growing up, having pool floats meant there were some noodles (Low-key, I’m still wondering who came up with that name.), plain inner tubes and maybe a few lounge-type floats that could barely hold one person. I truly don’t know how I even survived pool parties when I was a kid without pool floats shaped like unicorns and avocados. If I’m obsessed with these quirky floats as an adult, imagine just how cool they’d feel to 10-year-old me. Kids nowadays have it made when it comes to pool parties—and I’m ready to recreate my childhood with some of these adorable pool floats.

Giant pool floats have become super trendy in the past few years, and they’re not going away any time soon—thank goodness. There are so many unique pool floats out there, and each one is cuter than the last. I highly encourage you to stock up on these floats so you can rock your summertime Instagram game. And, because I’m such a big supporter of having myriad pool floats at any and every pool party, I rounded up 19 of the cutest ones for you to shop. You can thank me later, after you have the most successful pool party of all time.
