It is getting hot in here: Toys for summer days

  • Summertime and the livin is easy...summer is without a doubt the best time of the year for all of us. Even the smallest ones enjoy the perfect weather in the garden, at outdoor pools or the beach. As a matter of course, there are some must-have toys that are on the summer plate for kids.

    Water fun in the garden

    For young and old, water fun is the best to really cool off when the temperatures rise. Therefore, parents should focus on toys that make the play with water as versatile as possible. This starts with exciting water pistols which are perfect for wild water battles in the garden. Fun that never ends: a water slide as well as a sprinkler in the garden.

    Children also need time to rest during the hot days. Therefore, a tiny house, a cosy tent or a hidden tree house are small oases for relaxation and quiet plays.

    Toys for a long ride

    Summer time is vacation time. Therefore, children need to be entertained while travelling as they get bored easily. Toys which can be used in the plane or in the car like painting and activity books are particularly suitable as they bring a little peace to the joyful anticipation. A small learning computer or board games in travel format are also ideal companions on flights and journeys. Moreover, these toys take up little space in the luggage and can also be used in the holiday apartment or hotel without any problems.

    Sand castles on the beach

    The most important thing for beach days? Sand toys, of course! Children love to play with shovels, rakes, pails, shapers and sieves to build sand castles or waterways. By the way: If the kids want to play with sand and water in the garden, a mud kitchen is the perfect opportunity to develop physical skills, language as well as imaginative play.
