It's almost summer here and that for sure means more play time outside with the kids and the grandkids too. My grandchildren are at that age where toys are everything and it's so much fun to spend time with them and watch them just enjoy being kids. In fact, I was just watching a home video of one of my grandlittles where I was stacking blocks and she was knocking them down, laughing uproariously, like it was the funniest thing in the whole wide world. They're so easy to make happy when they're little, and I love that video. :)
This summer we'll be breaking out toys from some of my favorite manufacturers, the first being Playmobil. I have been a fan of this company for as long as I can remember. They make high quality kits that every single child in this family has loved building and working with at one time or another. My favorite thing about them is that they are challenging but not TOO challenging. They keep us busy but don't frustrate, and of course, they're not too easy which is important as well. Since we're big on the beach here, this Bakery Sand Bucket is going to be one of our faves to carry along when we head to the ocean. You sieve the sand through to make bakery treats, complete with the mold and the decorative stamps. This would be perfect for beach day, but it'd always be a fun toy to take to the sandbox. I can see anyone of my baby grands loving their playtime with this toy. The one you see here is the bakery version, Playmobil also has a Knight Castle Sand Bucket version that is super adorbs too. Recommended for ages 1 1/2 +. Learn more by visiting the website here.
This Go Go Bird from Zing Toys is an R/C meets drone kind of event that will leave kids laughing (a lot) and having the time of their life! The wings actually flap and you can control the bird from up to 200 feet away. The best thing about it (besides that it flies, lol) is that it uses infrared sensors so the Go Go Bird will recognize when it is about to hit something and take an automatic turn. There is also a six-axis sensor installed inside of the bird, which means you can get it take off or land by simply lifting your hand up and down when you're ready for it to fly. It also lights up if you want to fly it at night. You want to talk about cool? It doesn't get any cooler than this... perfect for the backyard, park, beach, etc. This is an outside toy the kids are going to love. This toy runs on rechargeable batteries (included) and is recommended for ages 8+. Learn more by visiting here.
The final toy you can choose (from one of the three) is this Wing Ball. Super easy to toss into the trunk of the car, or keep in the house to take out in the yard. It's the perfect toy for occupying your time when you're outside and it's fun for two or more players. It's a soft foam throwing toy that's easy to catch and even easier to throw. Toss like a pro and send a perfect spiral every time. This is the kind of toy my family likes. It's easy, fun and never gets old. We're an active bunch, so finding a way to get out and move is always important to us, especially at family gatherings, which we'll be seeing a lot more of during the summer months. This is also a good idea to take out when friends are visiting the house. Get off the screens and get outside. Enjoying the fresh air is a big part of what makes summer fun, so get out there and enjoy it! :) Learn more about the Wing Ball by visiting here.
