It’s Spring. Which means more warm days, more fun in the sun. It also means Summer is right around the corner with even more fun days in the sun. I have put together a list of our favorite – Top 10 Outdoor Toys For 1 Year Old Boys and Girls so that they can enjoy their spring and summer outside.
Playing outside is typically a child’s favorite place to play. There are tons of new things to see, nature to explore and the clean fresh air makes a great place to play!
This list contains some of our favorite toys for toddlers age 1 and older. Meaning – minimum age recommendation is one year old, but older kids (age 2 and above) can also use these outdoor toys. Still, we would recommend parents or other adults close to kids to pay a close attention until toddlers are familiar with how to use each of these toys.
