Pool Noodles Made in the USA

In 2013 we started to make noodles right here in the USA at our Virginia Beach, VA headquarters! Our pool noodles come in two different sizes: Swim Noodles™ (55″ long and 2 3/8″ diameter) and Super Swim Noodles™ (55″ long and 3 1/4″ diameter). We’ve also developed a full line of accessories for our noodles, including the Noodle Head Shooter™ water squirter attachment, the Noodle Sling™ fabric attachment to create a floating chair from a noodle, and Noodle Loops™ so kids can make water rafts and floats from their own collection of noodles.

Our Pool Floats Allow You to Relax in Perfect Harmony with the Water

Our new premium pool float for 2014 is the Aquagami™, it provides a cool way to float with no inflation required. Comfortable and buoyant, this accordion-style float instantly unfolds when you’re ready to relax.

Learning to Love the Water with Preschoolers

Some little kids might not like getting completely soaked like their older brothers and sisters, so we have a couple of alternatives that make water exploration more fun as they build confidence. Sea Squirters™ are cute water shooters available in three friendly styles: alligator, hippo and sea turtle. We’ve also refreshed the style of our popular Gobble Gobble Guppies™ to an Orca.

The best thing about Gogglemates is that they float, making them easier to grab for beginning swimmers.
