10 best (and cheap) paddling pools

Our favourite way to spend a hot day is splashing about in a paddling pool with our kids.

Having a paddling pool means that when the sun is shining and the temperatures are getting higher, the whole family can get out into the garden and enjoy the warmer weather. Kids and adults alike can enjoy splashing around in the water, and it’s a handy way to keep even cooler in the shade as the temperature climbs.

So, when the sun finally decides to stick around for a bit, we’ve rounded up the best (and cheapest) paddling pools for summer 2018 – just take a look at our picks below.

But first, things to consider…

When you’re buying a paddling pool it’s important that you find one that will fit the size of your garden. If it’s too big you won’t have the space to enjoy it, and emptying it could end up with you water-logging your lawn.

Paddling pools can also cause havoc on the grass and larger ones are difficult to move around when they’re full, so keep this in mind when setting them up.

Of course, the most important rule of all, is that a paddling pool filled with water should only be used by children under adult supervision at all times.
