Seeing a giant inflatable pool float always brings a smile to my face. It’s something about the combination of a giant object that’s often way too big for the amount of water it floats in that turns me into a kid again. It’s a small effort to bring one of these inflatable floats to the beach, pool or festival(!), but it’s very rewarding as soon as you blow them to their gigantic size. These are our favorite and most remarkable inflatable floats.
It’s only right to start this best-of list with a classic, giant inflatable beach ball. The Beach Behemoth as this monster is called is the best quality ball of its size. It’s made of durable vinyl and is 12 ft. tall. Perfect for kicking it around the beach. Watch out for little kids though.
I always refer people to the following review as it sells this giant beach ball perfectly.
We took this ball to the beach and after close to 2 hours to pump it up, we pushed it around for about 10 fun filled minutes. That was when the wind picked it up and sent it huddling down the beach at about 40 knots. It destroyed everything in its path. Children screamed in terror at the giant inflatable monster that crushed their sand castles. Grown men were knocked down trying to save their families. The faster we chased it, the faster it rolled. It was like it was mocking us. Eventually, we had to stop running after it because its path of injury and destruction was going to cost us a fortune in legal fees. Rumor has it that it can still be seen stalking innocent families on the Florida panhandle. We lost it in South Carolina, so there is something to be said about its durability.

Okay, sure it’s not as big a duckie as our cover image, but it’s big enough to be get noticed from a great distance in the pool. If you thought a rubber duck can never be scary this monster inflatable duck might get you to think otherwise. It can fit up to 3 adults or 4 children is very durable and an essential float for your pool party.
