This is definitely one of the cool outdoor products for backyard fun that was immediately on everyone’s must have list as soon as it was assembled. A cross between a hammock and a cabana this tree pod is a cozy place for relaxing with the sensation of floating. There are three sizes, multiple color choices and you can hang it or if you don’t have a place to hang it you can purchase the stand. The Tree Pod supports up to 500 pounds and can be assembled in about 30 minutes with two people. Think of this as the perfect hideaway in your own backyard.

No pool? No problem. You can stay cool, get wet and have fun with an inflatable sprinkler that’s 6 feet tall so it doesn’t matter if you’re 2 or 42 years old. The dinosaur inflatable sprinkler is easy to inflate with a quick pump which means you’ll be cooling off in just a few minutes. There’s also elephant and unicorn inflatable sprinklers too.

We used to have a big outdoor gas grill, but we sold that with our last house. When we moved into our present house we just never got around to buying a new grill. I found this small collapsible charcoal grill at World Market. While it doesn’t take the place of a big barbecue grill you’d likely want to set up in your backyard, it would be perfect for taking to the park, on a camping trip or the beach.

I never leave empty handed when I visit Marshalls. On my latest “let me just wander the aisles and see what I find” visit there were so many colorful collections of melamine including the watermelon versions pictured above. I also found the plastic cups that are specifically designed to stick in the sand. When you’re at the beach they keep your drinks sturdy. I also found the zip up picnic cases. The cases are slim, have a handle you can hold or slip over your wrist and it hold plates and utensils for two.
