Providing endless fun to kids of all ages, and not to mention adults too, a lounge or splash in the paddling pool is the perfect way to cool down on those hot summer days. To really add some excitement to outdoor playtime, why not opt for a paddling pool that also doubles up as a play centre, such as the Bestway Lava Lagoon from B&Q.
