If you've spent time on virtually any social media platform lately, you've probably noticed the craze surrounding vibrant pool floats.

Although the fun inflatables may have once been a staple of our childhoods, they're clearly not just for kids anymore. 

Luckily, their recent explosion in popularity has resulted in a market absolutely filled with Instagram-worthy options.

Here are three essential floats that will let you embrace your inner child while appearing photoshoot-fresh at all of this summer's pool parties:

1. Inflat-A-Bull Float

Round up your friends and bring the rodeo to the water with the Inflat-A-Bull float. This aquatic bull riding experience brings the Midwest to your pool and will undoubtedly spur endless challenges and competitions. The bull has a soft-grip pull rope and handles to prevent you from getting bucked off and features such a realistic look that you may start to question whether you are in the water or at a championship bull riding event. It's time to channel your inner cowboy and take the bull by the horns.

2. Disney's 'Little Mermaid' Pool Collection

There's no doubt that we'd sell our souls for one of these floats from The Little Mermaid Pool Party collection. Just imagining walking into a pool party, Sebastian float in tow, or even getting some vitamin D relaxing on a float that looks just like Ariel's best friend, Flounder, makes us giddier than a dolphin. The best part? The floats come equipped with a trio of seahorse cup holders, so your drinks won't sink under the sea. The collection also offers mermaid fin beach towels and Ariel light up Bluetooth speakers, so you can keep the party going once you gain your legs.

3. Sam's Club 'Party Bird Island'

Thanks to Sam's Club's 'Party Bird Island' pool floats, your entire extended crew can have a spot to relax on the back of a whimsical flamingo, unicorn or peacock. But be warned: These floats are nothing short of massive, measuring at a colossal 10 feet wide and 10 feet long, according to Cosmopolitan, so unless you have a massive pool, these might be a better fit for your next ocean trip. They can comfortably fit up to six adults, and the flamingo and unicorn styles come complete with built-in cup holders.

Overall, you can't go wrong with any of these choices. At the end of the day, you'll be relaxing on an incredible looking float while taking in the summer sun.
