76 Unconventional Inflatable Objects

From Inflatable Motorcycle Jackets to Blow-Up Backseat Beds

— June 8, 2013 — Unique
There is something incredibly convenient about inflatable objects. Whether they are serving a practical purpose or are being used as jokester gag products, there is no denying the versatility of inflatable objects.

Although blow-up beds have been around for ages, these inflatable objects are not your average inflatable accessory. They are manufactured to be more durable and have a longer life span than your average pool time rubber raft. From massive Massive inflatable balls to floating party porches and even inflatable dinosaur exhibits, these unconventional inflatable objects are anything but ordinary. If you are looking for a fun summer water activity or a comfy way to lounge outdoors, check out these revolutionary inflatable objects and prepare to be pleasantly surprised by their durability and design.

My favorite unconventional inflatable objects are the massive floating playgrounds and the inflatable sphere suits.
