Intex Swim Centre family pool | Was £34.92 now £28
Like the look of the paddling pool up top? It's at an AMAZING price for what you get: there are built-in inflatable seats (for parents, we reckon), two drinks' holders (ditto) and a floor plug for easy draining. It measures W2.29m x D2.29m x H66cm.
Intex Easy Set Pool | Was £39.99 now £28.79 at Amazon
We love this pool type (oh yes, we've tried and tested it): you simply pump up the rim then the water does the filling out of the pool. So, it's so much less effort to get up and running. This pool type folds up pretty small, too. This one's 2.43m in diameter and 76cm high, but other sizes are available.
Intex Family Lounge Pool | Was £52.99 now £29.99
Can't you just see yourself lounging about in this fantastic paddling pool over the summer holidays. There's an inflatable bench and a headrest. Just fill it up, pour yourself a drink and relax. That's if it's not full of children, obvs. It measures W2.24m x D2.16m x H76cm
