Next up on the list – Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Blossom Bright Sprinkler.
One of my favorite sprinklers of all time. The Blossom Bright Sprinkler is unique because the flowers, in varying shades of pretty pink, move to shoot jets of water at giggling kiddos. Attach a water hose to start the fun!

The Banzai Sprinkle and Splash Play Mat is a new addition to this year’s best kids’ water toys.
Measuring 54 inches in diameter, this awesome water sprinkler is ocean-themed and ginormous for multiple kids. There are several holes in the mat and exterior rings, giving youngsters little splashes and spritzes of cool water. I love how colorful this is!

Also managing a place among the top picks in water toys for 2017 – Little Tikes Beach Ball Sprinkler.
Looks can be deceiving! This ordinary-looking beach ball is actually a bouncing, bounding sprinkler that delights kids and adults alike. Simply hook up a garden hose and toss the beach ball around for hours of super-soaked fun. Inflates to 88-inches!

The Trampoline Waterpark is made of quality, UV-protected material and comes with a 180-day money-back guarantee. This water toy is adjustable to fit any trampoline and makes said trampoline up to 25 degrees cooler. Additionally, the hose is attached to the outside of the net to prevent grabby behavior. It comes with full video setup instructions as well.
The hose is light and will not damage your trampoline’s netting. It make take a ‘lil while to learn how to get the product running, but your kids are in for one heck of a splashy, bouncy time!
Easy to use and highly-accurate, this gun holds a lot of water and provides hours of family fun with the kids. Add it to your kiddies’ water gun arsenal or purchase it in preparation for an upcoming water party. Your child will arrive at the shindig with the coolest option!

Another from NERF hits the list of the ten best water toys this year – Super Soaker Tidal Tube Blasters.
Another Super Soaker that brings back awesome childhood memories. These Tube Plasters are simple but effective. Kids load up their tubes with water, then launch 10-ounce streams at their opponents. Comes in orange and blue, and fires over 23-feet away.
Ages: 2 and up
The Intex Rainbow Ring Inflatable Play Center makes the kiddie pools of yore look, well, sad. It comes with two pools, one of which is a little smaller and serves as the “waiting” area before sliding down the ‘lil slide. The rainbow and rings add to the fun.
While the toy does not come with a pump, it holds up to five toddlers at a time and functions as the ideal beginner pool. The toy is also so darn cute–it is perfect for photo opportunities!
Ages: 3 and up
This year’s final item on the list of the top ten kids’ water toys for 2017 – Paw Patrol Water Rescue Pack.
Fact—Paw Patrol has become one of the best, most popular television smash-hits for kids this year. So, of course, little fans want to be as adventurous and brave as their favorite Paw Patrol characters. Fits like a backpack and holds 33-ounces of water. The straps are adjustable for comfort.
