Outdoor Toys for Toddlers: Go Crazy for Climbers

Keeps toddlers busy!

Sports Climber for Toddlers

Perfect Outdoor Toy

This sports climber is a personal favorite of mine. We got this when my son was about 11 months old -- he was still learning to walk so he couldn't really go up the back to get to the slide by himself. But, he LOVED for us to plop him down on the slide so he could zoom down. Now, he's 18 months and absolutely loves this! We actually pull this inside if it's going to be rainy for a few days so that he can continue to use it.

It comes with a few balls, which he loves, but he just can never get enough of climbing up to slide down.I can say that he has used this consistently for the past 6+ months, and I don't see him stopping use of this great outdoor toy for toddlers!

Sand Table for Toddlers

A New Sensation for Little Fingers

This is an awesome sand table, and over 120 reviews agree with me. You wouldn't think something so simple would be so fun for toddlers, but it IS! This holds a 5 lb. bag of sand nicely (you can get this for $5-$6 at your local home improvement store).

Overall, this sand table is very sturdy and portable--simply move it to a shady place if the sun gets too hot. This sand table also comes with a lid to keep out the rain (and neighborhood cats!) from your toddler's new favorite toy!
