It is summer time and that means it is time to hit the pool. I was sent these awesome pool toys for my review from SwimWays.  I looked at them and I thought stuffed animals for the pool. I do not need these. Then my children saw the box and they haven’t left their hands since. They take them in the shower and to the pool and they have even been grocery shopping. They sleep with these pooligans. 


   I wasn’t sure how they would work in the pool. The children were ready to test them out. They were the stars of the pool. The kids came running over to see their new toys. I can tell you that my children rolled around over them and swam under them. They tossed them and they fed them. They even gave them a name. When they are not in the pool they are being used as pillows at bedtime.

The toys dry quickly you simply hold them up and the water drips out. That is if you can get your children to let go long enough. They are a huge hit at our house. I like them so much that I plan to buy them as gifts.
