So I recently saw this video on YouTube of someone who had a massive pool full of giant animal inflatables and firstly it made me laugh, but secondly I got to thinking there were a whole load of them that you could get hold of! I do remember as a kid having an inflatable canoe type thing that was in the shape of a dolphin that was a favorite of the family whenever we headed to the beach or to our friends’ pool but I don’t think there was such a massive array of giant animal inflatables around then so that was likely only one of a few that were available (and of course a dolphin is not an animal!).
Anyway, so I thought I would take a look around for what kind of inflatables you can buy these days and found a whole load of stuff. I also found a giant inflatable King Kong but that is another story. The giant inflatable monkey to the left is 5 feet tall which sounds pretty big to me. Also the killer whale on the right is a good option for pool or beach at a very reasonable price and I had to add in an inflatable dolphin even though it is not in the shape of a canoe!
So, veering back to land animals and in particular African land animals I also found this inflatable zebra. You can also get this on a bigger size for a bigger price but this one looks pretty good for starters.
In terms of other giant animal inflatables there are quite a few dinosaur inflatables and on the left is a Tyrannosaurus inflatable as a good example.
