Summer is coming, and that can only mean one thing! Time to get the pool floats out! In the past, they were simply something for children play with, but, these days, they're a staple item in any good millennial's stock list. The arrival of Instagram has given rise to a whole new kind of fun; the kind that looks good on camera, but is super dull to live...
Whether you want to take photos to make your life look Insta-perfect or you actually want to have fun floating on the water, there's a huge variety of floats that you can choose from! From fruit to plants, animals to Colonel Sanders, there's a float for everyone, and we're going to help you decide which one is for you!
If you're a true millennial, we're sure you'll love the avocado float. You'll see why when you see its removable pit. Check it out at the bottom of the page!
Floating used to be so simple.Remember the days when floats used to look like donuts? And that was if they were fancy floats. Most of them just looked like rubber tires... These days, float-designers have raised their game.
Last year was the summer of the unicorn.Were you even around in summer 2k18 if you didn't have a unicorn float? It was the perfect way to take a nap while looking cute and incredibly Instagrammable.
It's easy for a unicorn to lose its sparkle, though.The life of a unicorn floatie isn't as easy as Instagram makes it seem. And have you tried getting on one? They're pretty high up and it can be difficult to get on the back of them. Sometimes it requires a running leap, and sometimes there are casualties...
Some people make it look so easy.

It can be hard to achieve the perfect snap.Floats are amazing. You get to tan and chill and keep your feet cool in the water. But they do, by definition, float. And this can make capturing the perfect shot on camera a difficult task. Enter: the best friend.
This one's wonderful.
