    Online store recommendations for toys, safety gear, etc?

    Amazon seems to only sell through 3rd parties for pool gear. What online stores do you recommend? I need toys, floats, safety rope, etc.

    I have picked up some deals on toys on Amazon, but they are hit and miss, for example a couple of months ago I bought a couple of nice floats, paid about $20 each for the, right after they came in I thought maybe I should get one or two more, went back to the same Amazon item and the price was up to $40 each. As to pool equipment there are some real deals available on ebay, I bought my current pump there new in the box for just over $300, and the most online shopping searches show a low price of about $420 for the same model.

    Sometimes Craigslist has good deals. I don't have any experience with pool supplies, but I did buy a truck through Craigslist before and got a good deal.
