Pool Noodle

pool noodle

A pool noodle (also known as a water log or woggle in the UK) is a cylindrical piece of polyethylene foam, sometimes hollow. They are useful when learning to swim, for floating, for rescue reaching, in various forms of water play, and for aquatic exercise. Pool noodles are particularly useful to support amateur snorkelers. The most common dimensions are about 160 cm (5’3″) in length and 7 cm (2.5″) in diameter. The purpose of the hole in some noodles is unclear. Children often use this hole to blow water into the unsuspecting faces of their peers.

A pool noodle connector is a piece of pipe made out of foam, slightly larger than a pool noodle so that it can connect two pool noodles by encasing the end of each. This allows larger structures to be built from pool noodles.  ‘Noodleskin’ is a custom cover that is placed over a foam pool noodle which allows 2 pool noodles to be made into a floating seat.
