We have reached the summer of peak Instagram, the tipping point when a cappuccino must not only be rich but also artfully swirled. An avocado toast must not merely be luscious, it must be colorful and superfood-laden,too. And a pool must not be merely fresh and sparkling, but must contain, swanning gently to and fro, a delightfully fantastical pool float.
Strike that: Swans are so 2015. No, today the fanciful creature du jour is the giant narwhal, that Arctic porpoise derivative that has a front tooth that grows into a horn. In the wild, is it used for protection, for mating? No matter, because you’ll be using your inflatable friend for relaxation. It’s surprisingly comfy to lean back on and a snap to inflate in minutes with a bike pump or hair dryer set on cool.
Best of all, at $59, the giant narwhal is priced to move (half what some fancy pool floats cost). Now all you need to do is get your spray tan and swimwear sorted, and post your summer away.
