Target’s recently released collection of pool rafts includes an assortment of whimsical shapes that will make any summer occasion even more colourful.

As scoped out by fan Instagram account @TargetDoesItAgain earlier in May, Sun Squad – a line exclusive to Target – launched a handful of floats that inflate to look like animals, including a pink and white llama, a blue narwhal complete with a rainbow horn and a tail, and a sloth that looks rather relaxed.

If a zenned-out sloth isn’t your thing, there are other unique pool rafts in Target’s new collection.

For example, one float is shaped like a motorboat, and it includes a cooler compartment. It’s available online for $US40.
