Here comes the sun - cooling off in summer with outdoor pools


With the weather being as cold as it has been, summer may not be at the forefront of your mind – but here at Wicken Toys we like to plan ahead a little! Although it may not seem it quite yet, spring and summer are on their way.  There have already been warnings for an upcoming drought in Eastern England, the Midlands and the Southeast!


The UK’s weather is notoriously unpredictable and we at Wicken think that its changeability is all part of its charm and appeal.  There aren’t many other places in the world with the variety of climate that we have – surely this is something to be celebrated.  After all, without the weather, what would we have to complain about? ;-)


We think it’s wise to prepare for all seasons, especially when they can all come in the same week!  So what better way to prepare for the summer than to browse through our selection of outdoor toys – and maybe give the kids their first paddling pool to cool off in?


With a wide variety of different sized and shaped pools, we’re sure to have that little something perfect for you and your family.  We have pools ranging from as small as the 61cm Intex Sunset Glow Baby Pool to up to nine times the size – check out the 18ft Intex Ultra Metal Frame Swimming Pool Set for example.



If you want to let your little ones enjoy the warm weather but are worried about the effects the sunshine could be having on their skin, don’t settle for just sunscreen.  Giving them a reason to be in the shade every so often can help to teach them sun safety from an early age.  Have a look at the Intex Ocean Reef Shade Pool and think of how much fun your children could have with a dramatically reduced risk of sunburn.


Perhaps you have a little more space to play around with, in which case consider investing in a larger pool for the bigger kids – this way you can enjoy the weather with them!  The 10ft and 12ft examples of the Intex Metal Frame Swimming Pool cater for all ages.


Inflatable toys have been around for a long time, and Intex have really taken off as a manufacturer of these as well as actual pools.  Encourage imaginative play time by providing your younger children with a Frog Ride-On to add an extra dimension to the outdoors fun!  Or perhaps they’d prefer a crocodile to join them?  Maybe even a dragon?  There’s a ride-on for every kid – even the big ones!  What better way to relax while the kids are at play than chilling out atop an Intex Pool Lounge?



Remember to look at our range of accessories and maintenance products too, to keep your pool in tip-top condition.  With a selection of equipment and spares – from extra filter cartridges to electric heaters – there’s something to help with all eventualities.  Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about your pool too – we like to enjoy good weather as much as anyone!
