For some of you, summer can’t come soon enough. If you’ve been stuck indoors, counting down the days before warmer temps arrive, we feel your pain. The only thing worse than being stuck inside all winter or braving the cold is being trapped indoors with bored toddlers. I know you’ve broken out all the arts and crafts, puzzles, blocks, and indoor games you could think of.
With springtime upon us, it’s time purge the old and broken toys and think about which ones you want to bring in. If your kids are anything like ours, they love getting to soak up some television and screen time. So, we’re sure you want them to put the screens down and get some play in too. So, what are the best engaging water toys for young kids?
Don’t worry; we know how important it is to choose toys that will help kids engage for more than a couple of minutes at a time. But we also threw in a few toys adults could enjoy with their little ones too. If you’re ready to beat the rising temperatures, check out our perfectly curated list of the best water toys for babies and toddlers right here!
Water toys for toddlers and babies are all over the place. Here’s what we looked at when we picked the best of the best!
Seriously, if we added all the money up that we’ve spent on “budget-friendly” toys as opposed to just waiting to buy the more quality item, we’d be embarrassed about how much money has been wasted.
Instead of focusing solely on the cheapest toys, we decided to try to include a range of prices and plenty of toys that have good budget-friendly alternatives. Aside from that, the best water toys based on ranking, personal experience, and safety.
Let’s just get one thing out there. There’s no wrong way to have water fun with your little one! Whether it’s getting wet in the hose, running through sprinklers or making a DIY slip n’ slide, there is always fun to be had. But if you were looking for new ideas and great products, we hope you found them here.
Keep your mind open when thinking about how to make some outdoor fun for your baby or toddler. Yours might surprise you with their ability you didn’t realize they had quite yet, their fondness for being in the water, or even in their interest for something you didn’t know they’d be into doing.
If you’ve got an older toddler, one of our favorite ways to get their thoughts on something before-hand is to look up videos of other kids using the product. You’d be surprised at whether your toddler has an opinion on the product, but this trick can also get them excited about even the simplest of purchases!

There’s no one more vigilant about your child’s safety than you. We took a look at the safety ratings of each of these toys. We also took a fine-toothed comb and poured over the hundreds (and thousands for some) of reviews trying to make sure none of these had any hazards that weren’t blatantly obvious.
But the truth is, you know your child best, your typical environment and so on. If you don’t feel that any of these products are for you and your little ones, definitely skip them! Now get out there and start making some splashin’ memories!
