Target Just Launched a New Line to Make Summer Even Better — And We’re Gonna Go Broke
Attention, Target shoppers: The store just launched a new summer line called Sun Squad — and it’s everything we could have hoped for. There are pineapples and watermelons, flamingos and cacti, floats and coolers, and even something special for your doggo.
In total there are nearly 600 products, starting at $1.50, which are a combination of practical and playful. That’s so many products! So we’ve narrowed down the offerings to our very favorite 10.
1. Summer Food Beach Towel, $10
Pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs — really what other food groups are there in summer? This 100% cotton towel will make you hungry and is perfect for lazing on while your (other) buns are out. We’re not talking about the hot dog and hamburger variety … if you know what we mean.
2. Grapefruit Pool, $20
If you’re looking to splish and splash, but gah, you don’t have a pool, this citrus-themed blow-up is just the thing. It’s suitable for toddlers and up to you-know-who-you-are. Go ahead and soak your feet while you sip a glass of rose. #YOLO
3. Cactus Pool Float, $20
If all the plants in your kitchen are dying, you’ll love this one, which you (most likely) can not kill. Plus, it’ll make you the coolest kid in the pool.
4. Silicone Dog Bowl, $5
Your four-legged friend should definitely not miss out on the Sun Squad fun. After all, he needs hydration during the dog days of summer! This tie-dye bowl isn’t just cute, it’s also practical — and collapsible.
5. Backpack Cooler Pineapple, $20
If you’re taking the party to go, you’ll want something to keep things cool. This pineapple backpack gets the job done on so many levels. Stash your drinks, snacks, and sunscreen inside and be prepared to get beaucoup compliments.
Show your patriotism with this red, white, and blue star-print chair. It’ll make any picnic a million times better — especially for those of (all of us?) with bad knees!
7. Whale Bottle Opener Blue, $7
This whale bottle opener is guaranteed to make a splash. We love it as an easy and fun hostess gift.
The rule when it comes to lawn games during a cookout: Keep it simple. And it doesn’t get simpler (or cuter!) than this better-than-basic yellow ball.
9. 10-count Flamingo String Lights, $12
String lights are a summer patio essential and flamingos are STILL in. Really, they will never be out. Give your backyard bash a tropical feel with these light-up birdies.
What’s better than chips and dip at a party? Serving them in this super on-trend serving platter set. Duh!
