Strange Inflatable Amusements for Kids

Ever had a time when your kids got so dirty, you thought it would be easier to just take them to the car wash to get the dirt off? While the Splash Wash wasn't made for that purpose, it does make you feel like you are in a car wash themed water park!
This inflatable water toy is an inflatable archway connects to a water hose and produces a cascade of water over anyone that goes through the Splash Wash – just like in a car wash. If you are thinking of getting something for you kids to cool down with in the upcoming summer months then this is a really great buy!
You can walk through, roll through, skip through, or even ride your bicycle, or big wheel through! It's a great way to beat the heat, and also a fun and innovative way to spend a warm and sunny afternoon.
Kids like tents. They can protect kids from the sun as well as give them a place to nap. I am thinking of getting this Swedish tent that just looks like a giant surreal cloud.
This is a wonderful portable blow-up space called The Cloud. It is designed by Monica Förster, a Swedish designer who is internationally renowned for her creations in contemporary Swedish design.
You can simply carry the cloud house with you and set it up anywhere and anytime you like. It takes less than 3 minutes for the igloo-like shape to inflate. What a great design. This would be useful for many occasions, whether you find yourself homeless or just in need of shade.
Want your kids to do their homework. Get them an inflatable computer mouse to make it more fun! Made from soft plastics and flexible circuitry with an attachable USB cable, the only other thing the Jelly Click mouse needs is a breath of fresh air. Simply breathe into the open end of the mouse as if you were blowing up a beach ball, and voila! A mouse that can be inflated and deflated wherever and whenever you are in need.
Is your kid a skateboarder? How about getting him or her an inflatable skateboard? Getting pumped is 90% of a skater's skill, but this board needs to be 100% pumped to perform. The Pumpboard by Puxon Maciej is a fiber board that can be deflated, rolled up and easily stored.
The Pumpboard might be handy for skater kids with bicoastal parents—this deflating skateboard will make it onto any plane. The design is very cool, but seems that elaborating the deck with stickers or markers would be completely out of the question!
