Playing outside can give your child the chance to explore the natural environment around them, while testing their physical limits, express themselves in imaginary play, and build their self-confidence.
Outdoor Toys and physical activities are good for their health, fitness, emotional and physical development.
Ride on Toys
A ride-on toy is something families have been purchasing for their little ones for generations since the invention of cars and bikes.
As part of early childhood development and growth, motor skills development is proven to be crucial for your toddler, promoting gross and fine motor skills.

If you’re lucky enough to have space in your garden, then one of the most popular and best outdoor toys on the market is a trampoline.
In our opinion here at Outside Play, every child should be allowed to trampoline as often as they can. As the health benefits of jumping on a kid’s trampoline are numerous.
A trampoline helps to keep kids healthy, working their muscles and cardiovascular systems. It’s a great way of enhancing your child’s muscle development, strengthening bones and reinforcing joints.
Trampolines have evolved to be safer and bouncier, providing maximum fun with minimal risk. A trampoline may look like just another toy for the garden, but it is so much more than that.

Learning to ride a bike is an important skill that every child should learn.
Bike riding is a skill that comes with a whole range of benefits.
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that are the most rewarding. Learning to ride a bike is one of them. Once your child has a bike, cycling is a fun and free activity that they can enjoy with friends and family. Riding a bike not only improves physical fitness, it also benefits your child’s learning development and mental health.
One of the most popular children’s bike categories is BMX, which stand for Bicycle Moto Cross.
BMX is a great sport for young kids to get involved in while they’re still fearless. And as long as your child is kitted out in the proper protective gear and has some guidance, they won’t be in danger.
