An inflatable water toy that includes a base and a plurality of legs and that is shaped like a spider. In a first, upright position, the legs extend upward and outward so that the ends of the legs touch the water. The base for the inflatable water toy is positioned against the water, and one or more people may float on top of the base. In a second position, the inflatable water toy is turned upside down, and the tips of the legs extend upwards. Each of the legs thus forms a saddle in which a user may sit, and the base extends like a table top between the saddles provided by the legs.

Go to a frozen lake and walk out on the ice. There you go, you've walked on water.
Don't have a frozen lake near by? No problem, dump some ice out of your glass on the floor and stand on it. You might even win a bar bet with this one. Don't forget to give a cut of the winnings to the clean up staff.

The present invention is related generally to inflatable products, and more specifically to inflatable water toys . Swimming is a recreational activity that is enjoyed by children and adults, especially in the hot summer months. People flock to pools, lakes, and rivers to pass the time on a hot summer's day.

When at or in the water, people often enjoy a variety of different pool toys, including water games, dive toys, and inflatables, such as loungers and inflatable toys. These toys and floats provide entertainment and comfort while in the water. .
Think ice is cheating? Use a water walking ball. There's another ehow article on this with a picture. It's a big clear plastic ball that you get zipped into. Once you're inside, and it's pumped up, you can roll around on the water by walking. You'll look like a floating hamster, but who cares. You're walking on water.The following presents a simplified summary of some embodiments of the invention in order to provide a basic understanding of the invention. This summary is not an extensive overview of the invention. It is not intended to identify key/critical elements of the invention or to delineate the scope of the invention. Its sole purpose is to present some embodiments of the invention in a simplified form as a prelude to the more detailed description that is presented later.

In accordance with an embodiment, an inflatable water toy is provided that includes a base and a plurality of legs. In an embodiment, the inflatable water toy is shaped like a spider, but may have a number of legs other than eight.

In an embodiment, the inflatable water slide includes a base to which legs attach. The legs extend upward from the base and curl in a C-shaped manner so that they extend initially upward from the base and then downward, almost directly opposite the initial direction of the legs.

The inflatable water toy may be used at least two different ways. In a first position, the bottom of the base for the inflatable water toy is positioned against the water, and the legs extend upward and curl downward so that the ends of the legs touch the water. One or more people may float on top of the base, or hang onto the legs. In a second position, the inflatable water toy is turned upside down so that the top of the base is in contact with the water, and the tips of the legs extend upwards. Each of the legs thus forms a saddle in which a lightweight user may sit, and the base extends like a table top between the saddles provided by the legs. The inflatable water toys may be used in a similar manner on land, with users situated between legs and the base serving as a table.

Don't want to look like a hamster? Get some boats for your feet. I can't find anything commercial for this, but there seem to be high school competitions to build these. I've added links below to a couple of them, one with video, and one with a picture.
In the following description, various embodiments of the present invention will be described. For purposes of explanation, specific configurations and details are set forth in order to provide a thorough understanding of the embodiments. However, it will also be apparent to one skilled in the art that the present invention may be practiced without the specific details. Furthermore, well-known features may be omitted or simplified to not obscure the embodiment being described.

Referring now to the drawings, in which like reference numerals represent like parts throughout the several views,  shows an inflatable water toy in accordance with an embodiment of the invention. In the embodiment shown, the Inflatable pools   has the appearance of a six-legged spider, but other configurations may be used. For example, an inflatable water toy in accordance with the invention may have more than or less than six legs, and the legs and/or rest of the inflatable water toy may be shaped differently than shown.

If you just want to look like you're walking on water, you can do it through illusion. All you need is a very thin layer of water over something solid. If the light's right the water won't be transparent and you'll appear to be walking on it. Platform shoes will help with the illusion. If you want it to be especially impressive and deal with transparent water, use something strong and transparent just below the surface.
