Aqua Riders are soft and buoyant pool noodle characters that kids can float on and ride!

Each Aqua Rider noodle features an integrated foam character head and tail. Styles include Sea Turtle, Narwhal, Pink Flamingo, and Tiger Shark.

New for the 2016 swim season is the Aqua Rider Squirter. Aqua Rider Squirters have a built-in squirt gun that draws water from the pool so it doesn’t have to be re-loaded.

Great for everyday play and pool parties, too. Grab one of each style to create your own floating zoo!

Our brightly colored swim noodles have endless uses! Use them for games, flotation, and as added support during swim training practice. Check out our Pinterest board for creative ways to use pool noodles.

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.
