After spending all winter with my kids bouncing off the walls, we can’t wait for the first signs of spring! These toys will have yours and mine running for the great outdoors.
Pop and Catch Ball Game
This fun game take catch to the next level. The set includes 10 balls and four catchers, which makes it perfect for hangouts and small groups. Catch a ball in the basket and press the trigger on the handle to pop it back out to another player!
The kiddos will love racking up points playing this cuter version of cornhole. The flexible board as well as the bean bags feature adorable animals! Best of all, you can flip the board over to play a safer version of darts, using 10 sticky balls. Your little ones will love taking turns and these fun games will teach them how to count up their points and become healthy competitors.
The dinos are taking to the skies! Complete with three dinosaur rockets and a volcano launch pad, this outdoor toy will definitely become a favorite with your children. All they have to do is stomp on the pedal and watch the dinosaurs zoom up to 100 feet in the air.
A seesaw with a twist — literally. This teeter totter works like normal, but you can also spin 360 degrees on it! It holds up to 110 pounds and we're sure this will be a hit with your kiddos and anyone who comes over to play.
Older kids will have a blast with this laser tag set during nighttime hangouts. The sensors go around each kid's chest and back for 360-degree aim with the lasers. If you want to play with a larger group, you can buy multiple sets and they'll all work together!
This beach-themed splash pad guarantees hours of fun. From the mini lighthouse to the cute aquatic buddies it comes with, it's an awesome water toy for kids ages two and up. Plus, it folds away when playtime is over! Check out our review here.
This awesome, self-propeling glider is a cool new take on the traditional bike. It's a great active toy for kids ages four and up and you can even steal it for a ride, thanks to the extending foot bar.
Hide and Seek is fun, but Find and Seek is even better! The kids can challenge each other to find something "round," something "blue," something "fuzzy," and more by picking out random cards and exploring the backyard. For an even harder challenge, try doubling up on cards with multiple words, like "small" and "sparkly" or "pointy" and "red," which will result in more specific finds.
These reusable water balloons will definitely come in handy during the warmer months. They're made of silica gel and easily pop open upon impact. Some parents say these are perfect for bath time as well!
We’ve always been a fan of this high-flying rocket, but dueling rockets make it double the fun. Now two friends (or siblings) can stomp on their rocket launchers at once and send them up to 200 feet in the air. Continuous rocket competitions will have your kids playing outside until the sun goes down.
What kid isn’t enamored by bubbles? And these aren’t just any bubbles, they are ginormous bubbles! Using a two-handled bubble wand and a special solution, kids can create record-setting large bubbles, making themselves the envy of the neighborhood.
This classic toy brand has been around since 1917 but they’ve continuously found a way to create wagons that work with modern times. This 3-in-1 easy folding wagon is perfect for urban families with limited space because it folds up and can be easily stored in a closet, garage or trunk. This multi-purpose wagon has seating for two riders or can be folded and turned into a bench, providing extra resting spots at the park.
There’s just something about tossing a Frisbee around that makes kids (and adults!) happy. We like this brand because the Frisbees are light-weight, meaning less “ouches” for the kids. Plus, they come in a myriad of different colors that are perfect for boys and girls. As a bonus for beach lovers, the frisbees even float in water.
School-aged kids love scooting around the block, but smaller children can now join in on the fun. This scooter has a removable seat that younger kids can use as a ride-along until they build up the confidence to fully scoot. The handlebar is also adjustable as the kids grow, making for long-lasting fun! You’ll love those features and they’ll love the multi-colored light up wheels and extra space to throw up their feet once they hit their stride.
Just think of sidewalk chalk as crayons for the outdoors and your driveway as the paper! This kit takes outside drawing to a whole new level with spray art. Your kids can spray amazing shapes with stencils or draw freehand, turning your cement into a masterpiece.
These bouncing balls are like no other — they fly high, are fun to touch and come in super fun colors! The drop dots add an interesting texture to the ball and the range in shapes makes it easy to swap different ones in and out of your game of catch or football!
If your little monkeys love to climb and you have room in your yard to spare, this lightweight climbing tower is perfect. Keep them off of your furniture and in the great outdoors instead with this structure that is steady enough to hold 150 lbs of weight at a time.
Who says toddlers can’t go bike riding? These balance bikes are great starter toys for those who aren’t quite ready for a big bike. The great thing about these is that they have no pedals, allowing kiddos to put their feet down when they need to and lift them up and balance when they are feeling brave. Once your child is comfortable with a bike like this, a real bike should be a breeze.
