During the summer months, what better way to help your little ones become more adventurous and appreciate the beautiful outdoors than by playing out in the garden? Give your kids the freedom and independence they crave while still keeping an eye on them (and getting the chance to drink a cuppa while it’s still hot!) by filling your garden with exciting outdoor garden toys and fun activities to do. Here at The Toy Centre, we have a great range of garden toys for toddlers, little kids and big kids too!
Encourage Imaginative Play with Garden Toys for Toddlers and Kids
Your garden doesn’t have to be anything special for your little ones to make the most out of it – they just need to let their imagination run free and a simple patch of grass transforms into an extraordinary world of adventure! The classic choice for this is always a tent or a playhouse; we have several fantastic options, including the Coastal Cottage Playhouse and the Whacky Tower Wooden Playhouse which comes with its own slide. We find that wooden garden toys have the longest lifespan, and wooden playhouses are much more comfortable than plastic when it’s very hot or cold out.
With our Pirate Sandboat, kids can have hours of imagination play, using the shovels to dig up buried treasure and make creations in the sand, all while staying cool in the shade thanks to the canopy over the boat. Ride on toys are also fantastic for creative games, whether your kid wants to be a firefighter racing to put out burning buildings on a Red Ride on Fire Truck, or race around in their own Black Classic Metal Ride on Car by Baghera. Playing with outdoor garden toys in this way improves your child’s emotional and psychological capacities while being creative and feeling free.
It’s Fun to Learn with Outdoor Garden Toys
During the educational stages of growing up, interactive learning helps improve kids’ memory while they have fun. Imaginative and exciting outdoor garden toys help with their development – not to mention being a welcome distraction from their screens!
Activities like gardening help improve their hand-eye coordination, and teaches them about planting seeds and what it takes for them to grow. Turn those little fingers green with our Happy Little Gardener Playset and My First Green Bean Growing Kit, which includes everything kids need to start growing their own food and learn how to care for something – young children love to watch plants grow bigger and bigger every day. Another great option for fun garden toys for toddlers is the Bigjigs Wheelbarrow which is super fun for little ones to wheel around, helping them get involved before they’re big enough to really understand about planting.
Safe Wooden Garden Toys for Toddlers and Up
Sometimes, traditional really is best and we have really lovely wooden garden toys to transform your outdoor space into a special playground for your little ones and their friends. As long as you have a sturdy tree in your backyard or garden, our fabulous Tree Swing can provide hours of fun, is easy to assemble and is suitable for ages 3-12. Complete the look with our Wooden See-Saw, which is extremely sturdy and built to last. The traditional appearance of these wooden garden toys means that they will fit seamlessly into your garden too.
Make the most of the warmer weather and spend time outside with your children by investing in our outdoor garden toys.
