On a really hot day, which we have more and more of these days, just cold drinks and ice creams just won't cut it. You have to swap your shorts and T-shirt for a swimsuit and dodge the water streams from the sprinkler, or don't dodge! Add fun water hose toys to the combination and your little one will start moving and enjoy the open air and warm sun. If you still have very little ones at home, this multicolored Octopus from BS Toys is our best recommendation.

Regular sprinklers work great for cooling your kids down on a hot day. And most kids won't be picky about the type of sprinkler. I used to play with the sprinkler in the garden, but we didn't have such cool special sprinklers for children as, for example, that octopus. One thing to keep in mind about regular sprinklers, however, is that they can pose a risk of injury because they have hard metal pieces, or the water pressure can be too high. What should you look for in water hose toys? Everyone can have fun if you know what to look for in the best sprayer for kids. Obviously you only want to look for sprinklers that connect to a standard garden hose. Otherwise it gets a little more complicated and probably not worth it. Multiple sprays A single sprayer is certainly nice, but a sprayer with multiple nozzles and sprays is much more fun, whether you have a kid or six of those little ones. Especially if you have more kids playing in the sprayers, a sprayer with lots of sprays can avoid fights over who gets wet first. Put bright colors in OK, this isn't a necessity, but having a sprayer that is bright, colorful and even has a fun shape can make a difference to a child. Especially small children will be attracted to the toys and have even more fun in the summer. Soft Materials One of the great things about spray game for kids is that it helps them refine motor skills and build muscle. They jump and swing around in the water. It helps to have spray toys that are soft in the event of a fall or slip. This may not be necessary for your child, but it can be something to keep in mind.
