After months of rain the sun finally came out and we are ready to go outside and play! My partner, Sarah, moved last summer and she hasn’t had time to get her yard ready for summer playtime. We were talking on the phone and dreaming of all the fun toys she could put outside as an invitation to play and we found some awesome outdoor toys!

Get Ready for Spring with These Awesome Outdoor Toys!

The Vortex Spin Ring is the perfect swing for more than one child. Children can sit, stand, spin, and sway on this swing. Up to four children can fit on this swing making it easy to share and fun to enjoy together.

The WonderWave has limitless ways for kids to play with this outdoor toy. They can rock or relax together. Because up to four kids can use it at the same time it is a wonderful toy to encourage cooperative play and shared enjoyment!

Our sensory seeking kids love having a hammock to hang out in. The Rockin’ 2-in-1 Hammock will delight their hearts as they can relax or rock in this awesome outdoor toy!

I’m going to admit. I’m not sure if this one is for the kids or for me. I would love to hang out and read a book in this HangOut HugglePod. It even comes with LED lights to give it a more festive effect. It’s a perfect portable hanging play space for camping, beach, overnights at grandmothers.

The Super Swingball Outdoor Game is great for eye hand coordination! I like that it is portable. If you have more than one child you can bring this with you when you watch their sporting events. That way the siblings can also be playing while you watch the game.

I’m not the biggest fan of remote control toys. They are great for hand-eye coordination but the kids seem to tire of them quickly. But the Kid Galaxy Mega Morphibians Snake. Amphibious RC Car takes remote control toys to the next level. When you get spring rains the kids can take these cars out and play in the puddles. These durable toys can be played indoors or used outdoors to encourage the kids to spend more time playing outside.

Active Play Gigantic 3 in 1 Net Set with Oversized Accessories is perfect for the backyard, beach, picnics and parks! Easy set-up and take-down makes this a portable playset which can be stored in your trunk for spontaneous games.” By using oversized toys young children and children who are still developing their ball skills will be able to be more successful at playing ball games.

The Rope Climber is great fun for the kids and builds upper body strength. Believe it or not, strengthening the core actually helps children sit still and do pencil and paper tasks at their desks! Another fun feature of this rope climber is that the kids can also use it as a swing!

Live Butterfly Kits start indoors and take the fun outdoors. Children will love the magic of experiencing the life cycle of butterflies and then releasing them out into nature and if you have a butterfly garden the wonder will be intensified.

Flying kites with my grandparents is one of my favorite childhood memories. The Huge Rainbow Kite For Kids Magic Kit Comes with 100% Satisfaction.

If you have young children you may want to get the Step 2 Up & Down Roller Coaster. Our favorite preschool has this toy and it’s one of the kids’ favorite outdoor toys. It’s really wonderful watching the kids work together to put the roller coaster together (It’s simple enough to assemble that the kids can do it.), take turns and cooperate by pushing the car up to the top for the next child.

If you don’t have sand toys or you need to replenish your supply this Kids Sand Toys Set for Building on Beach or in Sandbox has 15 durable pieces for hours of play.

Now Sarah can’t get all of these toys. It wouldn’t fit with her minimalist lifestyle so she’s going to have to choose just two or three. If you had to choose which ones would you pick?

  1. What a wonderful list. Some of these are not available in India. I would love to purchase them in furture through your links. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Great selection! My children are still too young (18 months and 3 years), most of these toys don’t look safe enough for their age, am I wrong? what would you suggest for kids in the age of mine?


    1. Most of the toys are for older kids but we would recommend the roller coaster car and the sand toys. The roller coaster car is one of my favorites and I first saw it at a preschool. The kids wanted to play on it over and over again.


  3. All kids will love these toys. The net set and colorful kite looks nice. I bet my younger ones will scream with joy if i get them one.


  4. I wish had some of these toys when I was a kid. But luckily I have a little nephew and he would LOVE these toys. Great post.
