This year’s best of the best sprinkler toys for kids – Little Tikes Ultimate Beach Ball Sprinkler.
Adorable in chunky, colorful stripes, this beach ball sprinkler is all about cooldown fun in the summer sunshine. Measuring 88 inches, the ball is inflatable, requiring a water hose for splish-splashiness. Built-in lights make this sprinkler a blast at nighttime.
Ages: 3 and up
Coming in next for the best kids’ sprinklers in 2017 is a new one from Melissa & Doug – the Sunny Patch Splash Patrol Sprinkler.
Bunches of splashing fun, this sprinkler, nicknamed the Sunny Patch, has a cute design that starts with a green patch of grass with a bunch of funny, wormy wrigglers on top. The wiggling, colorful grubs spout water in every direction. What fun! 🙂
Ages: 18 Months & Up
The Kleeger Kids Water Sprinkler Toy: 2 in 1 Giant Inflatable Whale Splash Fun is a fun and fantastic way for your kiddies to beat the summer heat. In the shape of a friendly blue whale, this sprinkler also works as a pool toy. All you have to do to get the “blowhole” working is connect the toy to your garden hose.
This sprinkler is ideal for toddlers and provides hours of backyard fun. Use it at your next pool or water party, or any time the kids are bored and want to cool off. It’s a great first sprinkler! Have fun!
Ages: 3 and up
Next is the ZPur Fire Hydrant Garden Hose Sprinkler.
This sprinkler is so cute! Hook him up to a water hose and this fire hydrant is good to go. Donning a funny expression, this sprinkler reminds me of a cartoony character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Spins and splashes!
Ages: 3 and up
A returning pick among the top 10 kids’ sprinklers in 2017 is another from Melissa & Doug – the Sunny Patch Blossom Bright.
Another Sunny Patch favorite from Melissa and Doug. The Blossom Bright sprinkler is an all-time favorite that I have featured on several summertime lists in the past. The grassy green base is dotted with water-sprinkling flowers in shades of pink.
Ages: 3 and up
The colorful Hydro Spinning Sprinkler creates swirls of water that reach for the sky. It even features lil noodles for extra splashes of water.
You will need to put your water pressure on high to get the most out of this sprinkler, however it is still a great buy. Kids will be mesmerized by the sprinkler’s pretty colors and the jets of water that create a Vegas fountain-style show. It may even tempt the family pooch into getting in on the fun!
Ages: 5 and up
The Discovery Kids Sprinkler Ball is a 32″ inflatable ball perfect for outdoor fun. It weighs a total of 1.9 pounds will seem wonderfully-huge to your little ‘uns. Water sprays out of the top and sides.
Use this sprinkler by itself or in conjunction with a slip ‘n slide to make any backyard barbecue extra awesome. Kids as well as adults will love running around with the ball on hotter-than-hot days, especially since the water pressure is actually pretty darn gentle. Add it to your next outdoor shindig for a great time!
Ages: 3 to 5
One for the TMNT fans! Eigth place of the ten best kids’ toy water sprinklers is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Spin and Spray.
I remember there was a similar Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle sprinkler in the 90s, but this one has a revamped look. Powered with water, this turtle moves his arms in crazy ninja moves, shooting streams in unpredictable directions while spinning.
Ages 1 and up
The Glordon Flower Design Circular Spot Sprinkler covers up to 30 feet of space for lots of splashy fun. Made of aluminum, it sprays water in a gentle circular pattern and features power-coated paint to avoid rust.
This sprinkler may be small, but it is super-cute and works well as a garden sprayer after the kids have outgrown it. Use it to water your lawn and give the kids something fun to do at the same time on a hot day! They are sure to love the bright, fun color and circular spray pattern.
Ages: 3 and up
The final item on the list of the top ten kids’ sprinklers for 2017 is the third on the list from Melissa & Doug – Sunny Patch Grub Scouts.
Last on the list and last from Melissa and Doug’s Sunny Patch collection—this sprinkler is less colorful with more grubs. There are green, water-spouting wormies everywhere, donning adorable Grub Scouts caps. Their goal is attaining the Entertainment Merit Badge.
