The summer of 2020 was a summer of doing everything at home. Because of what was going on in the world, doing the usual summer excursions wasn’t an option for many people. The summer of 2021 is shaping up differently, but that doesn’t mean there still isn’t a demand for at-home entertainment.
Last summer, Aldi worked to fill the gaps by offering a large lineup of entertainment for the front yard and back yard. One of the biggest — literally — was a pair of giant sprinklers: the Summer Waves Unicorn Sprinkler and the Summer Waves Dino Sprinkler. They were a hit, vanishing from stores almost as fast as they showed up. The unicorn, in particular, seemed to be a hot item.
Well, they’re back. Both the Unicorn Sprinkler and the Dino Sprinkler are both landing in stores. For stores with Sunday ads, the sprinklers are due to hit shelves on June 13, 2021; for Wednesday ads, the sprinklers will arrive a few days later, on June 16. Aldi, like many retailers, has faced some product delays this spring, so these dates could shift. Both sprinklers are $39.99, the same price they were in 2020.
We’ve previously written about the Dino Sprinkler, and we think some of those thoughts will apply to the Unicorn Sprinkler, too. You can read about it right here.
