While the British summer has been a little hit and miss over the last few weeks, a heatwave is most definitely upon us and we couldn't be more excited.
As well as BBQs, gazebo gatherings and evenings spent around the fire pit, there will no doubt be a number of days over the next couple of weeks that a paddling pool is called for. It's tradition, isn't it?
But rather than opting for the usual same old, why not impress your kids, neighbours and friends with an incredible double water slide? Perfect for a summer birthday party, it'll keep the kids cool and entertained for hours on end.
We know what you're going to say - it's expensive. Yes, but it's set up in mere minutes, has a compact design for convenient storage and comes with a carry bag, repair kit, water spray and water bags. Plus, well, it's really cool.
If that's a little out of your budget, Aldi has a whole host of other outdoor toys that will keep your little ones occupied this summer, so you can relax with a prosecco sorbet.
