Let's be honest, we all wanted to live in Barbie's World at some point in our life. (Seriously, have you seen the two-story mansions?!) Well, FUNBOY—the masterminds behind the most over-the-top pool floats out there—are letting us live out that dream this summer. They partnered with Mattel to create a curated collection inspired by Malibu Barbie that screams pool parties, hot weather and all things pink. Here's everything you need to know to score yourself a pool float (or two!) before the summer hits.

The 15 Coolest Giant Pool Floats to Drift into Summer 2021


First, a little background: Malibu Barbie is turning the big 5-0, and this milestone means a collection that celebrates the '70s in all its glory. Think retro patterns and a pink, orange and aqua color palette that's peak beach Barbie. But while the aesthetic is everything, it's the unique items (specifically the pool floats) that will definitely have people doing a double take at the pool party.

The four floats consist of a convertible, private jet, golf cart and a regular tube. Yes, you can lounge in a Barbie-inspired golf cart, live out the doll's glamorous life in real time and be completely over-the-top because why not?


Most of the large floats (aka the golf cart, private jet and convertible) have cup holders, head rests and can handle up to two adults on it at the same time. Plus, the collection also includes a kiddie pool and a beach towel to complete your ideal day by the pool, so Alexa, play "Barbie Girl" stat.


The collection ranges from $39 to $129, and everything is limited edition, so you might want to snag a few (or all) of the items before anything runs out. We don't know about you, but our summer just got a whole lot better.
