Kitsch swimming pool floats have been at the top of our holiday checklist for the last two years, and they’re showing no sign of deflating. Market leaders, Sunnylife, have dominated the inflatables market since they launched in 2003, and in the last 6 years they’ve had one simple goal: to share Australia’s authentic summer style with the rest of the world. Seen everywhere from the feeds of your favourite Instagrammers to your friend’s holiday snaps, Sunnylife are taking over summer with their fancy flamingos and party-ready pineapples.
Whether it’s a staycation or a long-haul adventure you’re heading on, if you’re dreaming of lounging on your very own unicorn this summer you’ll want to read on. Here’s this year’s top 7 swimming pool floats for adults and children alike. It’s time to chase the sun…
