Carly Brasseux // April 2

I want my kids outside. I want them outside as much as they can possibly be. Running, jumping, laughing, and yelling – it can’t be done inside. Invest in the best outdoor toys. Turn the outdoors into an adventure.

Here are a few of the best outdoor toys for kids to make sure you have family fun all year long.

Step2 Safari Truck Climber: Let your little ones climb, crawl and slide on this off-road safari vehicle design. We love that they can pretend to drive the truck and use the binoculars to spot pretend safari animals from afar.

USPOINT 6.5ft Climb ‘N Slide ‘N Swing 4-in-1 Mini Rectangular Trampoline for Kids: This is so much more than just a trampoline! Climb, slide, swing, and jump all on this one item. It’s a perfect first trampoline for kids.

Hide N Side 5pc. Kids Ball Pit, Tent and Tunnel Jungle Gym: Talk about loads of fun! This is a ball pit playground obstacle course that will keep the kiddos outside for a looooong time! Note that this product does not include the ball pit balls, but it’s recommended to have 400-600 to keep them entertained!

EzyRoller Classic Ride On: Better than a scooter, it moves like a snake with your leg movements. Kids sit low to the ground and push the foot bar back and forth to get great speed. I love that it’s extendable, so it grows with your child. Think maybe mom needs one, too!

Magic Carpet A-Frame Metal Swing Set: Don’t have a big tree to hang a swing from? That’s okay! Think of it as a hammock for kids to swing in (and so that they get out of yours while YOU are enjoying the outdoors).

Swurfer – the Original Stand Up Surfing Swing: My kids love to go outside and “swurf.” Any child or adult (I’ve tried and my balance is not quite as good as my kids) can hop on and soar. It has adjustable handles so it works for any height kid.

Outsunny Teeter Totter 4 Seat Outdoor Seesaw: Made with metal pipes, this seesaw is solid as a rock with 4 wide standing rods for a stable surface. It lets four kids play at the same time.

Lifetime Geometric Dome Climber Play Center: Have little monkeys? Yeah – I do. Anytime we go to a playground with one of these dome climbers, my kids can’t get enough of it. So why not bring it to your own backyard?

And don’t forget a sandbox, playset, and zip lines are great options, too!

Go ahead. Invest in some of the best outdoor toys for kids and have fun!
