Do you feel tired just thinking about summer and how to keep the kids entertained? We have the answers!

The sound of kids playing outdoors is music to many parents’ ears over the summer holidays. With favourable weather, balmy evenings and lots of time spent outdoors, keeping kids entertained and active is a (warm) breeze.

Join the kids in the pool as they make a splash with the inflatable Wahu Pool Party Sports Net, but you might want to sit out the gladiatorial Wahu Tube Wars and relax poolside while the kids test their strength! For more watery action, the Wahu Mega Slides are also fantastic for the backyard over summer.

The Britz range of balls and activities enhance balance, hand-eye coordination and encourage outdoor play. The Nightball range of balls and disks are easy to throw and catch, with a LED light up function that makes after dinner playtime all the more exciting. Kids bouncing with energy will enjoy the Zoingo Bongo pogo stick while the Phlat Ball transforms mid-flight from disc to ball and is fantastic for taking to the beach.

When the weather’s good and there’s no school or kindergarten, little kids love to potter around to their hearts content. Our range of Little Tikes’ Cozy Ride On products are fabulous for keeping kids on the move while engaging in imaginative role play. They’ll love spending an afternoon in their new backyard playhouse enjoying some homemade lemonade or a refreshing icy pole.

Summer is a great time to introduce little kids to sports! Little Tikes’ introductory range of basketball, soccer, golf and t-ball are wonderful for enhancing confidence, hand-eye coordination and motor skills. These are perfect Christmas presents and will provide hours of entertainment.

Trampolines are one of those items that never seem to go out of style. Bouncing is a wonderful activity and kids love the feeling of jumping up high and bouncing back… rinse and repeat! Our range of trampolines from Plum are sturdily made and come in a range of sizes to suit outdoor areas. Speaking of rinsing, from Plum we also have water tables and sand pits to provide many hours of creative play. And kids who like to swing into action will enjoy a swing set from Plum, guaranteed to provide hours of fun this summer.

Phew! We’re exhausted just thinking about all this activity, but getting kids into healthy habits from a young age is great for them (and your sanity…!)
