Best Budget-Friendly Unicorn Pool Float: JOYIN Unicorn Inflatable Ride-on Pool Float

This unicorn float is fun for kids—and for adults, it presents a challenge: can you stay on for more than five seconds? Yes, kiddos will love watching adults attempt to tame this unicorn . . . only to lose again and again.

What We Liked

• Raft or ride-on style (no hole in the center).

• Glitter!

• Super cute.

• Affordable.

What Needs Work

• Be careful not to over inflate! Wings can break or tear if that happens.

Best Large Unicorn Pool Float: Jasonwell Giant Inflatable Unicorn Pool Float

Yes, this float is large: nine and a half feet long and four and a half feet wide! It holds up to 400 lbs.—that’s about 2 adults or 4 kiddos.

 3 valves open completely to inflate or deflate quicker.

• Affordable.

• Can use a hair dryer or toy air pump to fill.

Best Unicorn Pool Float Ring: GoFloats Unicorn Pool Float Party Tube

Pool float tubes have one advantage over the floats mentioned above in this article—they are easier for an adult to ride! At 45″ x 36″ this raft nicely fits an adult or two kids.

What We Liked

• Easy to inflate with rapid valve.

• Includes patches for repair.

Most Ridiculous Splurge Float: Zoostliss Huge Party Bird Island Giant Unicorn Pool Float

Yep, when they call this a HUGE party float, they aren’t kidding—yes, this float holds six adults! And takes some time (30-40 minutes) to inflate.

What We Liked

• 8 built-in cup holders and built-in cooler!

• Thick vinyl.

• Social media gold.

What’s Needs Work

• Benches can pop out from under you. This is an issue more for adults than kids. If the bench pops you end up sitting on the mesh floor of the float.
