From unicorn floats to pizza-slice towels, there’s nothing more fun than adult-sized beach and pool accessories tinged with childhood nostalgia. So add to your stable of novelty summer toys one very festive, oversized watermelon beach towel.

Created by ban.do, an accessory company whose tagline is “we’re serious about fun,” comes a very — yes — seriously fun towel for summer. Resembling a cross-section cut of watermelon, it sports a circular shape with a bright red center dotted with black “seeds,” outlined in white and ringed with jaunty green knotted fringe.

Generously-sized with a 60-inch diameter, it’s large enough to comfortably lay on at the beach sand-free, especially if you’re petite. These measurements definitely ensure there’s enough room to invite your essentials, like a tote and hat, or even a friend to settle in with you, too.

And while it’s cheerful, novel look alone is enough for anyone to click “buy,” its actual function as a towel certainly holds its own. The plush “watermelon” side is soft to the touch and the looped terry side is absorbent, thirsty to dry you off post-swim thanks to the 100% cotton fiber content.
