If your big plans to hit the water park this year are all wet, don't worry. There are some truly spectacular kiddie pools with slides on the market, and they're not all sold out yet (but they probably will be soon). Throw in some freeze pops and a water bucket, and your kids will have everything they need to experience the joy of summer.
Once upon a time, kiddie pools were all pretty much the same: Hard, plastic, maybe with some pictures of fish or crabs on the bottom. Things got boring fast. Now kiddie pools come in all shapes and sizes (from cheeseburgers to hearts), but the best part is that some of them include slides. Whether your kid is into dinosaurs or unicorns or pirates or even candy, there's a pool to make their backyard water slide dreams come true. Some of these pools even function as entire play centers that you can inflate and deflate as needed (in case you didn't feel like installing a permanent play structure). Just one word of warning: You need to jump on these pool-with-slide combos quick, because even though there are some choices available now, they're still in short supply. Here are a few you can still buy... if you hurry.
