How to choose a dry pool for a child as a gift — for development or entertainment

Dry pools are for gen­er­al or home use. In the com­mon pools (usu­al­ly large), a child can play in a spe­cial play area of ​​a shop­ping cen­ter, in a kinder­garten or oth­er enter­tain­ment and edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tion. And all the time, a dry pool can be at home: this is a fun game, child devel­op­ment and relax­ation.

Home dry pools can be:
- inflat­able (walls, and some­times the entire pool with a bot­tom and a roof — com­plete­ly inflat­able)
- there are frame­less (soft foam rub­ber) dry pools
- or dry pools with a light frame (light met­al frame, light padded, light tape or cor­ru­gat­ed frame made of dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als).
Inflat­able pools are usu­al­ly some­what cheap­er, air­tight (water can be poured), eas­i­ly fold­ed (deflat­ed / inflat­ed), but lose a lot in dura­bil­i­ty, tak­ing into account the prop­er­ties of inflat­able prod­ucts.

Soft dry pools are the most con­ve­nient for home use, they cre­ate not only a joy­ful gam­ing atmos­phere, but are also an ele­ment of mod­ern inte­ri­or and style.

Fur­ther in this arti­cle will dll in more detail on the char­ac­ter­is­tics of dry soft pools, and what you need to mean when buy­ing a dry pool.

Dry Pool Materials

First­ly, dry pools dif­fer in the mate­ri­als from which they are made:
- main­ly nat­ur­al and mixed fab­rics are used (cot­ton 100% or about 95% with the addi­tion of elas­tic mate­ri­als). The use of 100% cot­ton is rare, because. a pool made of such fab­ric after wash­ing will be prob­lem­at­ic to return to its orig­i­nal state due to shrink­age of the fab­ric.
- addi­tives to cot­ton make the fab­ric stretchy — so that you can spread the cov­er on a soft frame even after wash­ing.
- wash­able fab­rics are also used (less eas­i­ly soiled, brighter in pat­terns), but these are made from 100% poly­ester or mate­ri­als of sim­i­lar com­po­si­tion, i.e. their use inside the pool with the body of a child is a con­stant con­tact with syn­thet­ics. Such options also exist, but it is bet­ter to choose an option where at least there will be cot­ton fab­ric inside the pool.
- rein­forced (not chafed) fab­rics are used at the bot­tom of the pools.

Typ­i­cal­ly, the soft “frame” of a dry pool uses foam rub­ber of var­i­ous den­si­ties or sim­i­lar stuff­ing mate­ri­als that can hold its shape.

Form and types of dry pool

Soft dry pools come in var­i­ous shapes: round, rec­tan­gu­lar, angu­lar and sim­i­lar sim­ple geo­met­ric shapes. But inflat­a­bles can be of var­i­ous shapes, with roofs.

Also, dry pools can be divid­ed by type:
1. Fold­able-mobile pool. Which is easy to clean, and you can even take it with you to the coun­try house, to nature or to the beach and use it as a small play area or are­na. Such dry pools absorb the ben­e­fits of inflat­able
2. Sta­tion­ary home dry pool — the most wide­ly pre­sent­ed, can be a cool addi­tion to the inte­ri­or of the room.
3. Dry trans­form­ing pools — can be both a pool and a rug.

Dry pool dimensions

Of course, dry pools have dif­fer­ent sizes: in diam­e­ter (less than 75 / 80cm / 90cm / 95 and more) and the main dimen­sions of the pool, the dimen­sions of the thick­ness and height of the pool wall, as ll as the thick­ness of the bot­tom of the pool, dif­fer.
We can also men­tion the dif­fer­ences in col­or per­for­mance: the vari­ety of col­ors, design styles is huge.

Number of dry pool balls

The opti­mal amount depends on the size of the pool, the age of the child — its dimen­sions (height, ight), as ll as the actu­al style of the child’s play: relax­ation in the pool, a play­ful form of learn­ing when play­ing togeth­er with par­ents, or an out­burst of ener­gy through fun or pam­per­ing, etc.
A child at 1 year old may be fright­ened of a large num­ber of balls. We rec­om­mend start­ing with 150 balls. For old­er chil­dren, the rec­om­mend­ed amount is more than 200–300 balls.

Additional elements of dry pools

It is also worth pay­ing atten­tion to addi­tion­al ele­ments:
∙ Pool and ball stor­age cas­es for easy stor­age.
∙ There are pools with a lid for balls — they can be closed, dust will not get there, and the balls will not scat­ter around the room when the child is prank­ing out­side the game process.
∙ Equipped with game ele­ments: a dry pool for a doll, stick­ers, etc.
∙ There are pools with a play­ing field: on the field you can attach edu­ca­tion­al ele­ments with Vel­cro (let­ters, num­bers, col­ors, shapes, ani­mals), for exam­ple, equipped with a devel­op­ing set of stick­ers, there are Fish­er Price brand pools.
∙ There are also pools with favorite brands and heroes of kids: MiM­iMish­ki, Bar­bie, Hot Wheels, Leo and Tig, Fan­ta­sy Patrol, etc.
