We’ve rounded up some of the coolest backyard toys and playsets for your kids to enjoy while staying close to home. Make the most of your space with our favorite pieces!
KidKraft A-Frame Hideaway & Climber Tent
Your little one will love this awesome, multi-purpose tent. Not only can they play with their toys inside, but they can also climb on the roof, play with an attached bell, and peek through the side window to enjoy the great outdoors. It’s sturdy and great for kids who are obsessed with outdoor playtime.
Your kids can host their own backyard party with this adorable patio playset. They can barbecue, play in the mini sandbox, and plate their meals from the inside or outside perimeter. Plus, the included canopy will shield them from the sun when the rays are too strong.
Kids ages three years and up can brush up on their balance, coordination, and concentration skills while playing a fun backyard game. The set comes with a spinner and cards that dictate what kind of shell your little ones should hop onto. If they’re not feeling the instructions, they can make their own obstacle course or play "The Floor is Lava" around the yard!
This trampoline is a great size for smaller yards and it’s low enough to keep younger kids safe. They can climb in on their own, bounce to their heart’s desire, and slide out when it’s time to go inside. It even has a convenient shoe storage unit attached to the bottom!
Bullseye! Encourage your kids to take up more outdoor hobbies, like archery. This kit comes with three kinds of bows, 12 arrows, five quivers, and a detachable target with a stand. The arrows use suction cups to stick to the target, so you won’t have to worry about sharp objects and safety concerns. Just place the target in your backyard and see who can rack up the most points!
Bring the amusement park to your backyard. This 10-foot coaster ramp is colorful, exciting, and perfect for an outdoor adventure. The set includes a fully assembled ATV-style coaster car for your kids to sit in and enjoy the ride.
Help your athletes practice at home with these lightweight, tent-style soccer goals. They can scrimmage with their friends all afternoon — and when they need a break, they can hang out inside the tents!
There’s nothing like an obstacle course! This 38-piece set is full of cones, bean bags, jump ropes, etc. to get your kids moving and creating unique trails for one another. Design stations back to back or spread them around the yard for an extra challenge.
