Summer is finally here, and things are starting to heat up. But before you jump into the pool, you might want to grab the ultimate swimming accessory: a fun float!

From yummy frozen treats to cute aquatic creatures, there are plenty of inflatables available now that will give your pool a pop of color and liven up the festivities. (Oh, and they’re also great for your summer Instagram game. Just ask Reese Witherspoon.)

We've rounded up our favorite floats that are sure to bring a little more joy to your pool this summer.

1. Pizza pie

2. Red, white and blue ice pop

Never not working... even when I'm floating in a flamingo. 😜 #TGIF

"Pretty Little Liars" star Shay Mitchell was spotted hanging out with this pretty little flamingo, and it certainly made a splash (pardon our pun!) on Instagram. The hot pink floatie can loop around your waist. And while it's not required, standing on one leg is highly encouraged for the complete flamingo experience.

5. Ice cream cone

While it’s tempting to get out of the pool when you hear the ice cream truck jingling down the street, you’ll probably be more inclined to stay put if you’re already lounging with this delicious-looking cone.

$45 from Sunnylife, available at Nordstrom.com and other retailers.
