Noodles are an easy and affordable way to make your pool the best place to be this summer. In addition to classic pool noodles, we also make ride-ons, floating chairs, and toys made of noodles that kids of all ages can enjoy. Dive into this article to see all the ways we are using our noodles to make your pool time more fun.

Swim Noodles and Super Swim Noodles
Super Swim Noodles
SwimWays pool noodles are made right here in the USA in our Virginia Beach factory! We make two sizes of noodles: regular Swim Noodles (approximately 55″ in length and 2 3/8″ in diameter) and large size Super Swim Noodles (approximately 55″ in length and 3.25″ in diameter).
These soft foam noodles have character-specific hilts and colors: Red for Darth Vader, blue for Luke Skywalker, and green for Yoda.
Kids love to play with their Noodle Lightsabers in the pool or on dry land. Makes a great Star Wars party favor! (See all our amazing Star Wars pool toys here.)
Encourage imaginative role play with these soft foam toys shaped like swords!
Perfect for warrior princesses and knights in shining swimsuits, kids can wage a battle in the pool or on land with innovative Noodle Knights noodle toys.
Grab a few for your next kid’s birthday party. (We think these are especially great for pirate-themed parties!)
Noodle Slings are the perfect floating chair for pool parties, small pools, and vacations.
This low-profile floating chair is made from durable fabric and a soft mesh seat. Simply thread a pool noodle (not included) through the sleeves of the sling and you’ve got a comfortable and affordable pool seat for all your guests.
When not in use, the Noodle Sling takes up little room, so it’s a great space-saver. Available in lime green and dark blue colors.

SwimWays Spring Float Recliner – your travel-friendly floating “relaxation station”!
Features of the Spring Float Recliner
1. Patented Inner Spring
SwimWays Spring Floats are the only floats on the market with a patented inner spring. What’s so great about the spring and why would you want one?
Spring Floats provide greater stability and support in the water.
The inner spring is sewn into the float around the outside edge of the float under the fabric cover. You don’t actually feel the spring while you are on the float – it’s just there doing its job to support you in the water, making your floating experience more stable and comfortable.
Spring Floats are storage- and travel-friendly. When folded as shown below, the Spring Float Recliner folds itself into three compact rings, making this a great pool float for travel. The float is lightweight so you can toss it in your luggage or pool bag and still have room to spare for all your travel necessities. With the Spring Float Recliner, you’ll always have a comfy pool seat wherever you go!

2. Fabric-covered Inflation and a Soft, Cooling Mesh Seat
Like all SwimWays Spring Floats, the Spring Float Recliner has a fabric cover over the top of the inflation. The fabric cover adds durability to the float, is comfortable to lay on, and keeps you cool in the sun because it doesn’t heat up as much as plastic inflatables.
The soft mesh seat suspends your lower body just below the surface of the water, helping you to stay cool, and extends up and over the backrest, adding more comfort to your floating experience.

3. Integrated Backrest, Ottoman, and Cup Holder

Kick back and relax on the supportive backrest, prop your feet up on the ottoman, and stash your favorite cold beverage in the cup holder. The Spring Float Recliner is great for floating along and chatting with friends, reading, or just letting your body sink into the float allowing the hurry of everyday life to drift away.
The opening between the seat and ottoman makes it easier to get onto the float, and you can also slip your feet into the water when you want to cool them off without having to change positions.
4. Jet Valve Inflation
The jet valves on the Spring Float Recliner make inflation and deflation fast and easy. You won’t need an air pump or lungs of steel to inflate this float!
5. Sizes and Styles for Everyone
The Spring Float Recliner supports adults up to 250 pounds and is approximately 56 inches long, 38 inches wide, and 17 inches tall. (Size may vary slightly depending on the amount of inflation.)
If you like a little extra room in your pool float, try the Spring Float Recliner XL. It’s the same as the original, only it has more legroom, a wider seat, and supports adults up to 300 pounds. Dimensions of the Spring Float Recliner XL are approximately 61 inches long, 44 inches wide, and 20 inches tall.
