It's officially summer! Now that the weather's warming up and school is finally coming to a close, we're getting really excited about long, lazy days by the pool. And in preparation, we're filling our shopping carts with everything we need for the perfect day: a good swimsuit, face and body sunscreen you'll *actually* look forward to using, and, our favorite of all, a good pool float.
Whether you already know it or not, Walmart has a ton of top-rated pool floats that start at just $2 (yes, really). From low-key tube floats to giant, animal-shaped inflatables worthy of an Instagram pic, there's no shortage of options at the retailer that both kids and adults will adore. Keep scrolling to shop our 15 favorites for summer that we think will sell out in the blink of an eye.
If you want to take your pool-float game to the next level, consider the ultra-chic Costway Canopy Inflatable Lounge Swimming Raft ($170, originally $270). It features armrests and backrests, two built-in cupholders, and a retractable and detachable canopy for when you need a break from the sun.

The Big Joe Bean-Filled Watermelon Pool Float ($91) is priced higher than your average pool float because it's filled with buoyant beans, which makes it extra sturdy and comfortable. The outside is made of a quick-drying mesh fabric that will be a hit outside of the pool, too. Oh, and FYI, you can purchase a lime-inspired option ($91) for the same price.

The Play Day Inflatable Private Jet Pool Float ($23, originally $40) is epic in every sense of the word.
