Take your pool game to the next level with toys that go way beyond the basic diving ring. Whether you’ve got a Star Wars fanatic, a budding Jacques Cousteau, or a swimmer with a unicorn obsession, one of these accessories will keep them frolicking in the water all summer long. Flip through the album to see them all.

Have a Ball

Leave it to Swiss designers to come up with this adorably quirky pool (it works in the bath too!) toy. Available in yellow, blue, or green, simply fill the Plui with water and let simple physics do the work: put your finger over the hole at the top, and the water stays in, take your finger off, and the water drains out the nozzles on the bottom. Kids learn about controlling pressure as they release the raindrop-like streams of water in a slow downpour … or a torrential rainstorm!

Available at amazon.com, $13.99.
