Hot Toys for the Summertime

Along with being a day to remember those who fought and died for our country, Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial kick off of the summer season.  And that means time to head to the lake or pool!

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey made a splash on Monday with a look at some hot floats for the summertime.  Ryan teamed up with bargain mom and blogger Jenna Urban in Dunmore.

Below are some of the items Jenna spotlighted and more information on where to go to find them for your family. These products are available at most retailers including Sam's Club, Amazon, Walmart, etc.
