We are over this cold, gloomy weather and ready for sunshine and pool days. Punxsutawney Phil predicts six more weeks of winter, which has us daydreaming of The Caribbean more than usual! We thought you may also be feeling the winter blues so we’re hosting a Papasan in Paradise Instagram Giveaway!
Our Spring Float Papasan folds small enough to fit in a small suitcase – it’s the ultimate travel pool float. Our Baby Spring Float also folds flat and compact, making it perfect for travel. Head over to our Instagram (@swimways) to find out how to enter for a chance to win a Spring Float Papasan or a Baby Spring Float!
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.
SwimWays Swim Noodles, Super Swim Noodles, and Aqua Riders
Deal Alert: 15% Off Aqua Riders at Target Stores April 17-23
(In-store purchases only while supplies last. Offer is subject to change without notice.)
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).
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.
