New in today: Lidl pool inflatables inspired by Love Island

Dive into the aisles this week to pick up one of Lidl's fabulous new floats

The discount retailer has finally taken the plunge this week, offering a range of fun and fashionable pool inflatables.

There's a lot of love for pool floats right now – no doubt encouraged by the Love Island fever, currently sweeping the nation! With the likes of Aldi, Primark, George and Sainsbury's all already offering fabulous floats we've been waiting for Lidl to launch a range.

 Novelty pool accessories were last summer’s hottest trend, and that trend shows no signs of deflating anytime soon. Pinterest searches for flamingo inflatables was up 36 per cent and watermelon floats 66 per cent and thanks to Instagram.

We reckon Insta-fans will love this fashionable fruity number. Pineapples are up there in the popularity stakes with flamingos and unicorns, making this a likely sell-out design.
