I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love my backyard. It’s a tremendous balancing act being a parent and a business owner and building in quality family time is extremely important to me. My backyard provides us with an oasis that we can retreat to at the end of busy days and spend weekends with friends. In addition to my favourite summer toys that we carry here at Springy’s Tot Shoppe I have some big backyard items and kids furniture basics to make our yard child friendly, fun for my little guy and his friends, but super practical for us.
The Summer has barely started but we’ve already started making memories with these:
This KidKraft Outdoor Table & Chair Set is just the right size for our little guy and his friends. It’s the perfect place to set him up with colouring pages or crafts and the umbrella keeps the sun from blazing down on him. We like to entertain a lot so it’s also great to have a place for the kids to sit and eat – they love that they have a space that looks just like the big people!
Ok, sandboxes are pretty cool for backyard Summer fun. Kids can dig, build and imagine for hours. Our little guys loves to bring out his cars and trucks and make little construction sites. It’s the best thing to watch him and listen to the fantastic things he dreams up. The KidKraft Sandbox has a built in canopy so he’s safe from the UV rays of the sun while he plays. The other great thing about it is that it comes with a mesh cover that protects it from bad weather.
There is seriously nothing better than the little giggles I hear when I push my son on our Kettler Swing Set. This is truly my favourite piece of backyard furniture for my child. He has grown with it from the baby swing seat and is now using the board swing. The fact that the seats are interchangeable makes it a great long term investment. Kettler products are high quality, German made and are guaranteed to NEVER rust or fade. This swing also comes complete with safety anchors that detach so if we ever move we can just unhook it and move on… not that we plan to!
