Children really love to play with water so it is only normal for us to start with a pool where they can settle in and really have fun.

Water should just be added to it when it is inflated with a hose and then we are good to go!

Toddler Scooters

This scooter looks more like a mock vesper. For it to move, the toddler will actually have to propel it with his or her legs, thereby making the torso of the child much stronger. It’s so wonderful that it also plays children songs and it is educational because it recites alphabets and numbers for the child to learn.

This Swiss-designed surfboard is ideal for toddlers from the ages of 2 to 5 years old. The basic idea of scooters is for the kids to learn how to maintain balance while riding because they will have to turn left and right – shifting their weight in the process. This toddler scooter has two wheels in front and one at the rear. This helps for better balance as the child moves forward. 

Backyard Play Toys

14. Sumo Bumper Boppers

Whether you like it or not, this toy has to be used in the backyard where there would be ample space to operate in. First, a large circle is drawn on the ground and then the kids bump into each other hard enough until one is outside the circle. The one in the circle ends up being the winner. Through the bump and the fall, the child is protected because of the stuff the bump is made of. So do not fret, parents!

15. Mount McKinley Cedar Wood Swing Set

The accessories are: two strong and standard swings, a ladder, a rope ladder, a rock climbing wall, long slide, and a swing trapeze bar. In this unit, the toddler will get all the fun he or she needs. Since it comes dismantled in the pack, you might need to hire an expert to assemble and install it in the backyard for the toddlers to start using. It is strong and durable and is made up of cedar wood. 


It is important to note that the toy to get depends on the indulgence of the child or what he likes to play with. Some toddlers prefer sand to water, while others prefer outdoor to outdoor. I hope that this guide has gone a long way to helping you decide on the outdoor toy to get for your toddler.
