Top Outdoor Toys for 2022 – Outdoor Play and Active Play
Spring is nearly here with brighter days and sunnier skies, and we are thinking about how to get children outside and away from the screens. Outdoor toys are always seen as a good investment as they get children out in the fresh air, burning off energy and doing some kind of physical activity.
We have been on the look out for some new outdoor toys and games and have expanded our range for children of all ages, from preschool to preteens.
Some of the outdoor and active play toys are old school classics like noughts and crosses and hopscotch, others encourage throwing skills and balancing, and some are fantastic to boost communication skills, cooperation and teamwork. In all cases, they are a real incentive to get out and play! They are portable too, so easy to take along to the park, on a walk or anywhere really…
Let’s not forget our Yogi range of cards and activities to introduce yoga to a young age group. They are the perfect start or end to a busy day and so cool to use outdoors in the open space…
Good old classics outdoor games:
Tip: you can place the rings just close together or far apart to make it easier or more difficult.

These are light to use.It’s all about good throwing skills and precision.
