For the love of ‘Murica

Depend on us to make your Independence Day celebration better than the town’s “firework show” *eye roll*.  SO much better. We’ve got everything you need to party like it’s 1776. So grab your sparklers, fire up the grill, and don’t forget to pick up these 4th of July party essentials:

 

4 The Pool

Giant Ice Pop Pool Float

Nothing screams ZOMG IT’S SUMMER like an Ice Pop. And nothing screams ‘MURICA like red white & blue. Putting this Giant Ice Pop Pool Float in the pool is perfectly patriotic. So throw away those couple hundred mason jars from that unfinished Pinterest project and get yourself a couple of these.

Giant Watermelon pool Float

The Watermelon Pool Float looks good enough to eat – but please don’t try because vinyl and beer are probably not a good mix.

Giant Gummy Bear Pool Floats

Make your 4th of July party extra sweet with our Giant Gummy Bear Pool Floats. But they get lonely without each other so make sure to get both colors.

Beverage Boats

Just because the adults are in the pool, doesn’t mean they’re going to suddenly stop drinking. I mean we are celebrating freedom after all. Your precious wine coolers deserve a nice little pool float too. These beverage boats come in all different varieties so each guest can have their own.

Beast Koolers

A big celebration for the country we love calls for a BIG drink kooler.  Make sure your guests’ drinks stay cold while keeping the patriotic theme. Our Beast Koolers come in 4 different colors.

4 The Food

Inflatabuffet & Luau Inflatable Salad Bar

Those big bulky coolers are effective and all…but man are they boring. Whether you’re throwing a tropical summer themed 4th of July party or a picnic, these inflatables are a fun way to keep everything chilled. And when you’re done, they don’t hog up all the space in your garage—just deflate and store.

Grill Sergeant Apron 

Grilling on the 4th of July is not an easy task. But we’ve got the perfect solution. It has a pocket for everything that you’d ever need while grilling: for condiments, utensils, and even beer. We won’t judge you if you wear it even when you’re not grilling.

4 Fun

Pool Pong Inflatables

We get that sometimes setting up a pong table is a hassle—and not very pool friendly. You’ve got other important party things to worry about. So we’ve done all the hard work, all you have to do is blow it up.

Spitballs

The adults should have enough beers and wine to keep them occupied. As for the kids, it’s nice to have something to keep them from making you drink more. Grab a few of these Spitballs to throw into the pool our around the yard so they can stay cool and busy.

Beach Balls

Giant. Inflatable. Watermelons. Need we say more?

The only time when throwing food around is acceptable. Whether the kids are playing fetch with the dog or with Drunk Uncle Sam, these Flying Foods  are a great time.

Avoid A Bummer this Summer

Remember the phrase “You get what you pay for” ? We at BigMouth wanted to take a few moments to demonstrate this concept with our popular—and oft-imitated—inflatables. When it comes to these knockoffs products, this old rule is absolutely true. We put ours head-to-head with a recent copycat so that you can be in the know while shopping for summer fun.

Let’s start with our best-selling Giant Frosted Donut Pool Float

Designed in 2010, and first made available for sale in 2011, our giant 4 foot float is sized so that A) it’s hilarious B) it’s versatile enough to lay on or cling to and C) it can serve A and B in just about any size pool. Make it too small and you cannot actually float on it (darned buoyancy). Too big, and there is not enough room for anyone else in the pool.

The below knockoff (on the left) from “H2WHOAH!” was deliberately copied—quite recently in fact—by a major retailer. Their donut float could probably keep a paper plate of diet crackers on top of water, but not much else…seriously look at that thing! But you wouldn’t eat the diet crackers because the cheap and horrible chemical smell from their float would make you nauseous.

Slide04

Did you know that the same company fell in love with another BigMouth best-seller? Our Giant 6 foot (remember that number) Pizza Slice Float was also knocked off. Again, ours was sized to be fun and practical—it makes a great lounger for humans of all sizes. But what if the knockoff version was just “fun-sized”? You know, like the 1/4 of a candy bar you get when trick-or-treating. Let’s be honest—nobody likes 1/4 of anything…even 1/2 for that matter. That isn’t fun, and that isn’t America. Go Big or go home. Here have a look at the H2WHOAH! Pizza float (again, theirs is on the left) versus the BigMouth best-seller:

Slide06

If your significant other came home from the store and gave you the above “pizza float I saw on Instagram”, after crying, you’d probably wonder what you were going to put on it. Dead grasshoppers from the pool filter? More diet crackers? We’re open to ideas. Meanwhile, BigMouth Customer A is five sips into a tropical drink, and on their way to a killer tan while the other pizza slice sinks to the bottom of the pool.

 

What’s in the box?

 

Unboxing anything is usually fun—you get something new and the excitement factor is high. But what if your float wasn’t actually protected in the packaging? You see these knockoff floats are simply stuffed into a box. There’s no protection from the friction of the box, so the print will rub off or could be subjected to additional wear and tear en route from the factory—moisture, shifting, handling, and extreme temperature changes. 

Slide02

A good analogy is buying a box of cereal. Imagine if you opened that box of delicious Lucky Charms and found out there was no plastic bag protecting the cereal bits. ‘Nuff said. Oh, and don’t bother trying to patch the knockoff float if Fido accidentally jumps on it—no patch kit is included. We know that crap happens, and for that reason all BigMouth floats come with a patch kit so you can extend the life of your inflatable if things get a little too crazy.

Below is a recent television commercial featuring those knockoff floats. Did you notice that no one is actually using them? Hmm. Have you ever seen a commercial for a product that is being completely ignored?

Slide1

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. OK, there’s some merit to that, but we want our customers to be the envy of the pool/beach/lake—not the victim of a copycat. That means bigger floats, better designs, higher quality, and the highest level of integrity from our hands to yours. Consider yourself up-to-speed!

Have a great summer!

Well done, Dad.

Drinkin’ & Boozin’ Dad

Pops is a hard working man (we hope). He deserves a drink or ten every now and then. We’ve picked out a few of the best items to give Dad for all of his boozin’ needs:

 

bm1767_worlds_largest_beer_glass

The World’s Largest Beer Glass

A beer glass crafted for The World’s Greatest Dads. Don’t limit dad to drinking one beer at a timethis glass fits 4 beers. 48 ounces of pure hoppiness.

 

The Big Swig

The Big Swig Super Flask

A big flask for the big guy. Don’t make him suffer through anymore painful events: weddings, family picnics, graduations, the line at the DMV, etc, without one of these by his side. 2 gallons is just enough to get him through the next time Mom forces him to go grocery shopping with her.

 

Grillin’ & Chillin’ Dad

You have to admit, Dad grills up a perfect rib-eye when he channels his inner Bobby Flay. But standing in front of that flaming grill on a scorching July afternoon is not as easy as he may make it look. Here are some gifts to make life by the grill a little more chill:

 

Grill Sergeant 285x285

The Grill Sergeant Apron

Dad only has so much space out there, and only two hands. And he tries to avoid having Mom’s help because she ALWAYS asks to put zucchini or other veggies on there. Sorry Mom but zucchini on the grill means less room for the MEATS, and that just won’t do. The Grill Sergeant Apron comes with multiple compartments for his grilling utensils, condiments, and even for a six pack of cold ones (essential).

blue-gingham-inflatabuffet-550

The Inflatabuffet

Now – the chillin’ part. What’s a good summer BBQ without a macaroni/potato salad? Get Dad this inflatable buffet to make sure he has everything he needs to compliment his perfectly cooked burgers. And might we add, its a perfect way to keep the precious beers nice and chilled.

 

Huntin’ & Fishin’ Dad

If his happy place is in the middle of a forest or on his boat in the lake, then these gifts will certainly make him grin from deer to deer.

 

rsz_bmmu-gf-_gone_fishin_bobber_mug

Gone Fishin’ Coffee Mug

You can’t expect Dad to have a good day fishing if he doesn’t start his morning off with a coffee.

BMBO-SS-action-main

Shotgun Shell Bottle Opener

A bottle opener that makes shotgun sound effects? Yeah, this is a winner. Anything that makes opening beers easier is going to make Dad happier.

 

Tailgatin’ Dad

For the Dads that love sportswhether they’re actually at the game tailgating, or sitting on the couch watching. Don’t get a penalty this Father’s Day by only getting him a card because “he already has everything he needs”. We are pretty confident that he NEEDS these things so just get ‘em.

 

Giant Football Stadium Inflatable Serving Bar

If Dad could have married football & beer, he probably would have. Make sure his beers stay cold but his tailgate area stays lookin’ sharp. After all, he is the man.

BM1761--Football-Beer-Mug-Lifestyle

Bottoms Up! Football Beer Mug

Game day never looked so good. This 18 ounce mug is just what your Dad needs when he’s making sure the couch doesn’t run away.

Happy Father’s Day!
