It doesn’t take much to get kids excited about running through a sprinkler. Hot weather and cold water are usually enough. Still, it’s always more fun if they’re getting sprayed by a whale, a bunch of crazy wiggle tubes that dance or, as is the case with Big Mouth Toys new backyard sprinkler, a ‘ginormous’ magical unicorn that shoots water out of its horn.
The latest in Big Mouth’s series of hyperbolically named inflatable water sprinklers ⏤ there’s also a dinosaur and an elephant ⏤ the new unicorn was unveiled at last month’s Toy Fair and stands either just under, or just more than, 7-feet-tall ⏤ it’s unclear as the website and box disagree. Either way, to a 3-foot-tall toddler, that’s one hell of a giant horned horse spraying them with cold water. It comes in white with a rainbow mane/tail and looks kind of like a My Little Pony. Set up is as easy as inflating the unicorn, attaching a standard garden hose, and watching the wet and wild fun ensue. Your move, summer.
The Ginormous Unicorn Yard Sprinkler sells for $50 online and at Target, among other retailers.
