Troy Orsburne of Fayetteville, Arkansas is the inventor of Pool Cubes, inter-locking plastic building blocks designed specifically to sink in swimming pools so kids can build structures – bridges, islands, steps, chairs and tables — while in the water. Pool Cubes (each building block is 10″ x 10″ x 10″ and can hold up to 200 lbs. out of the water) can also be used to build a safety wall between the shallow end and the deep end.
While they do provide hours of fun for kids, Pool Cubes can also be used by adults for swimming lessons, water aerobics, and aquatic physical therapy. The Pool Cubes Facebook page says you can pre-order Pool Cubes without having to use a credit card. Just leave your contact information. Troy will pitch Pool Cubes on The Toy Box on April 21.
