    Introducing the giant inflatable flamingo, coming soon to a pool near you this summer.

    The flamingo follows fast on the feathers of last year’s must-have pool accessory, the giant swan. It quickly emerged as the must-have accessory (and fashion shoot prop) in pools (and Instagram photos) around the globe.

    But it all might have start with this bird…

    Sydney-based store My Messy Room is now taking pre-orders for both the giant inflatable flamingo and inflatable swan for mid-October.

    It’s a great present for that person who (a) has a pool; and (b) seems to have everything. Chances are they don’t own a giant inflatable flamingo. It’s also a great Christmas present for the kids.

    Sunnylife Inflatable Flamingo, AU$89.95 and Sunnylife Inflatable Swan, $89.95, are both available to pre-order from My Messy Room.

      They are the best pool accessory I’ve EVER seen!!!! Note I said accessory. Do you think I’d actually get wet?? No, they would look good just floating around. And I could watch from afar.

      I’d probably sink it 😉
