I have stumbled upon 29 must have inflatables that will change your life! …Or at the very least make life more comfortable, fun, fabulous, and/or convenient.

What do you think of when you hear (read) the work INFLATABLE?
Do you think of a terrible night’s sleep on your grandmother’s living room floor?
Or is the idea of the inflatable exclusive to a day at the pool?
Or buffet bars?
Rabbit trail: have you heard of stock tank pools? TOTALLY not inflatable, but TOTALLY awesome!
But I digress. As I was saying, the invention that made a solid effort to solve the problem of floor sleeping less back-breaking has come a long, LONG way over the years.
Not only have air mattresses leveled-up but but the ENTIRE inflatable market has had a SERIOUS level-up.
For example, raise your hand if you’ve heard of an inflatable hot tub…
Or sectional sofa…
Y’all. THIS movie screen!
Don’t forget about bounce houses!
And there are also ottomans…
Or the chaise lounge.
And there’s even an inflatable tub… for inside your tub.
There are also inflatable camping beds that’ll fit snug inside many cars! Whatever happened to layers and layers of blankets and having a survival story?? Doesn’t anyone walk uphill in the snow to school both ways anymore???
Beyond a better night’s sleep, there is a wide selection of fun! Some predictable, some not so much. The unicorn and flamingo pool floats are rather typical “fun” these days.
But the inflatable floating ring toss game, tank, battle logs, pirate boat, and volleyball net kinda make my childhood experience of day in the neighbor’s pool feel a bit more like a scratch-and-sniff sticker compared to what kids these days have access to 😉
Here’s a fun one for ya – an inflatable FORT! This definitely has a fun little inflatable twist to it.
And then there’s the convenience of the inflatability (is that a word?) of a kayak or stand-up paddleboard. If you’ve ever had to carry either of those you will know the challenge those water toys pose.
Finally… what is an inflatable without air? I can barely blow up a small balloon without passing out so the REAL hero in this inflatable story is… THE PUMP. Bonus points for one that is portable and wireless, but you can build some muscles if you decide to go old school with this guy. Of course, you can always count on the good ol’ air compressor.
SO. Did I miss anything? I don’t think they’ve invented an inflatable wind chime yet. But never say never, I suppose…
