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.

Aqua Riders

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!

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).

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.

Noodle Sling

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.

Where can I buy SwimWays pool noodles and noodle toys?

SwimWays noodles and noodle toys are available at Target, Toys “R” Us, Leslie’s Pool Supply, and dozens of pool shops around the country.
