    Sales of paddling pools and cooling new sprinklers are on the rise, unsurprisingly. While restrictive measures remain in place, we’re set to be spending more time than ever in our own gardens this summer.

    As a result toy and games sales have been one of the biggest areas of growth in sales, as people seek ways to keep cool and entertain during the heatwave. According to the retailer, many of its best-selling products over the last few days have been paddling pools and garden inflatables.

    One Five star reviewer of the sprinkler mat raves, ’This turned out to be even better than I expected! It took me a minute to figure out how to put it together (you don’t have to use one of the pieces if you’re attaching it to a regular garden hose) cause I was making it harder than it needed to be. Ha. But it fills up really nicely and sprays water nice and high! It’s easy to drain for storage and lays so flat! Loving it so far!’.
