Can we talk about summer for a second?聽It鈥檚 officially聽in the air, and we are *so* excited. Just聽imagining all of the fun times ahead like聽bachelorette weekends, backyard BBQs,聽pool parties,聽and birthdays聽鈥 let鈥檚 just say we鈥檙e sliding into prime season for outdoor entertaining.聽And while everyone鈥檚 giving pool floaties love (us too), we鈥檝e聽got a聽new obsession.聽Meet the聽The Minnidip,聽a kiddie pool for adults. Get ready聽to keep cool and up the style ante.

Self-funded solopreneur and founder Emily Vaca launched the Minnidip as the聽initial product of her Chicago-based design house LaVaca. She said it took a few years to get the details just right and to properly address聽the style gap in the market she saw. 鈥淚 spent almost two years searching for the right manufacturer and designing everything from the pool patterns to packaging to photoshoots myself,鈥 she says.聽鈥淚 couldn鈥檛 find anything in the market that I wanted seen in my own backyard.鈥

At 5.5 feet wide, the Minnidip is the perfect 鈥減atio size,鈥澛 ideal for two to three adults. It鈥檚 made from premium non-toxic vinyl, and you can even聽use a hairdryer set to 鈥渃ool鈥 to inflate it. (So clutch.) It comes in three totally 鈥榞ram-worthy patterns:聽the Just Add Water(melon), the聽Donut Forget Your Sunnies, and聽That鈥檚 Banana(leave)s.

Each聽retails for $70 from聽minnidip.com聽(and retailers nationwide like Von Maur, Aerie by American Eagle, and Dylan鈥檚 Candy Bar聽are signing up to carry it too). Here鈥檚 to a full season of pool-hopping.
