  • Roller Wheel, £45

    Age: 8+

    This is probably the most fun inflatable we've ever seen. Children can climb climb through or roll around in it – unfortunately it doesn't look big enough for adults, but we'd still be willing to give it a try. The inflatable wheel has colourful balls inside that jiggle and bounce around as the wheel rotates. What more could you want?
