Inflatable pool floats have certainly got a hipster makeover over the past few years. So why not inflatable pools?
Chicago designer Emily Vaca has created a line of Minnidip Inflatable Pools for that very reason. She stayed away from the traditional rainbow fishies, awful circus-y polka dots, and weird smiling suns in favor of fun, less daycare-centric themes like tropical banana leaves, a sprinkle donut, and a poppy watermelon.
Not that your toddlers wouldn’t love them too, of course.
For more sophisticated options, at the NY NOW gift show this year, I got to see Emily’s two new designs, which are less kitschy: a swanky gold outline banana leaf pattern, and a stylish navy and white pattern.
Now she wants to make it abundantly clear on her website that THIS IS NOT A KIDDIE POOL AND DON’T CALL THEM KIDDIE POOLS BECAUSE, NOT KIDDIE POOLS.
But come on.
Tell me that there will be anyone more grateful for a modern, 18″ deep inflatable pool a mom who just can’t with the creepy clown faces and the smiling purple crabs.
Buy the modern LaVaca Minnidip Inflatable Pools on the Lavaca website for $70 each, with the new designs out soon.
