If you kids love to play in the water and you’re not quite ready to invest in a pool or something more expensive for your backyard, then consider a fun water sprinkler for your kids.
These water sprinkler toys usually don’t cost that much money and all you need is a hose hooked up to your outdoor water source and you are good to go.
Younger kids love running through the spraying water and you can even get your older kids excited with some of the cool toy sprinklers as well.
I’ve rounded up the top 5 best water sprinklers for kids to help you choose one for your backyard this summer.
This water sprinkler is geared more towards younger kids and is a great option for toddlers.
It’s not overpowering and won’t spray water everywhere which can be a real plus if you are dealing with younger kids who may still be a little timid.
It’s super easy to hook up as you connect your hose to the front and then the water comes up and out of the flower blossoms on the top of the toy.
It’s safe for kids since it is made of all soft rubber material and not that large so you don’t have to worry about your little one tripping over it and getting hurt.
If you have a toddler, then I would definitely recommend this water sprinkler, but if you have kids over the age of 5, then this may not be exciting enough for them and you may want to go with a different water sprinkler below.
This fun fire hydrant sprinkler will have your kids running and yelling and having fun while getting soaked.
It’s really easy to set up as you connect it to your garden hose and depending on the pressure of water from the hose it can spray up to 8 feet up in the air. Some reviewers have even reported that it sprays higher than that with their water pressure.
It also spins and sprays everywhere from up and to the sides so your kids will have a great time trying to run and avoid the water or whatever fun games they want to play while getting sprayed.
The sprinkler does need to be on an even surface otherwise it will tip over when spinning though. It will work on grass but you just need to make sure it is even ground.
This sprinkler will keep older kids having fun and is not just geared towards smaller children.
Do keep in mind that the fire hydrant water sprinkler works best if you have good water pressure coming from your home.
This is another cute water sprinkler for kids that is super safe since it is an inflatable rather than a hard water sprinkler.
This one is in the shape of a fun and colorful gecko and the water shoots up from the back of the gecko.
The gecko water sprinkler will really impress younger kids and it’s really cute to have something fun like this rather than just a little stationary sprinkler shooting up.
Also, another nice feature is that the water doesn’t shoot all over the place and is not that high in the air so it makes it nice for smaller kids but you may just be surprised at how even some older kids really love the gecko.
The sprinkler is a pretty good size at 40 inches long and is 20 inches wide so multiple kids can play at once.
Your kids will have a ball with the splash and spray beach ball.
The ball features multiple water spouts that when you hook it up to the hose spray water all over the place. Depending on your water pressure some of the spouts may even shoot water as far as 15 feet.
The ball is pretty good size as it measures 35 inches in diameter so more than one kid can play with the ball but it’s still not too big to fit in smaller yards as well.
With this water sprinkler toy you do have to inflate the ball, which is really easy to do, then all you do is hook it up to your water hose.
This sprinkler toy would be nice for younger kids as well as older ones if you have more than one child in different age ranges.
This water sprinkler is not manufactured as a kids water sprinkler toy but it does serve as a great option for kids.
Sometimes you may find that old fashioned water sprinklers do a better job than the “kids sprinklers” because they are made better and are more functional as well.
What is nice about this sprinkler is that it is actually cheaper than the water sprinklers above and can even be used to water your garden or yard as well as entertain your kids.
The reason why I chose this particular sprinkler instead of a regular oscillating one (which would be a good option too) is because this one has a gentle spray action instead of the full force one that some other sprinklers have.
There are tiny little holes in three rounds on the sprinkler and each one sprays out making plenty of water spray for multiple kids to enjoy.
You may want to consider this water sprinkler if want to save some money and you aren’t worried about having a cute design but more functionality instead.
These are the best water sprinklers for kids that are available to buy right now. You will find that there are lots of water sprinklers that are geared towards kids but most of them are cheap and stop working quickly. Go with one of the sprinklers above and ensure your kids can have lots of fun cooling off and getting soaked.
