Check out this great toy Par 3 Mini Golf Course. So cute and so fun! It’s made by Step2 which is well known for their high quality plastic outdoor toys and playsets, so you know this is good quality. Suggested for kids age 2 years old and up, this toy can be setup indoors or outside in grass or concrete. Kids can arrange the pieces a few different ways so that they can create different patterns and obstacles. Comes with 2 putters and 2 golf balls.
Kids love to play with toys that imitate the activities they see parents and adults do. This is a great gift for the little guy or gal who wants to be golfer, “just like Dad”.
Have you tried a “balance bike” for your toddler or pre-school age child? If you haven’t seen these before, a balance bike is a bike that has no pedals and is designed for young kids. The idea is that you child can get an early start learning the balance skills that are needed to help kids learn to ride a bike.
The trend started a couple years ago and the YBike has emerged as one of the best and most popular among the balance bikes. It rates extremely highly on Amazon by customers.
Of course kids think it’s great fun to scoot around on the balance bike! It has large wheels that make it easy and safe to ride on pavement or grass.
Some parents have observed that after riding a balance bike for a few months, their kids seemed to do better when transitioning to their first “big kid” bike with training wheels. The YBike is designed for kids from 18 months up to around 3 and a half years old.
We bought this kids picnic table and umbrella last summer and the kids have LOVED it! When the days are warm, the kids love the special treat to get to eat their lunch or dinner outside on “their table”. Sometimes we will all eat outside as a family with grown-ups at a normal table and the kids at their table – Other days we will let the kids eat outside while mom and dad enjoy a quiet dinner inside – that’s a win/win 😉
The table is very sturdy and was pretty easy to assemble in a matter of minutes. There’s not much to put together, just a few screws and it’s done.
The manufacturer suggested age is for kids 36 months up to 8 years old. Our kids even younger than that enjoy it too. As long as they are old enough to sit in a chair without being strapped into a high chair, then this picnic bench will work great.
Not just for eating, this table is also handy for “messy crafts” that you may hesitate to do indoors. When it’s warm, our kids will take their markers outside and color too.
Removing the umbrella, the table can also be brought inside for use as a kids dining table during those big family gatherings when the dining room is full with adults and extended family. We did this for Thanksgiving and the kids loved it!
Overall, this gets 2 thumbs up from me!
I would never have bought this toy, I received it as a gift last Christmas and surprisingly, it’s a really fun kids toy.
The box reads, “charge, toss and take aim at the Indoor/Outdoor Duck Hunting game”. I was only brave enough to try this outside, but if you have really high ceilings in a very large room with nothing break-able, then why not give it a try inside? (This is going to remain an outdoor only toy at our house). The duck does have 2 distance settings so that you can have it go on short flights in circles for indoor use and longer distance flights for outdoor use.
This toy is rated for kids 10 years old and up, but it can be fun for younger kids too. The duck does need to be charged and launched carefully, so you will need an older child or grown up do the setup and launch the duck, but that doesn’t mean that kids as young as 4 years old could enjoy the “shooting” aspect of the game.
When I play with my 4 year old boy, I always charge the duck and then launch it into the air for him and then let him shoot at the duck. He does really well with it and thinks it’s really fun. The duck has to be hit 3 times before he comes down. Each time he’s hit, the duck stops flapping his wings momentarily and dips in flight a bit to show that he’s been hit. After that third hit, the duck glides down to the ground. Then it’s time to charge him up (about 10 seconds) and he’s ready to fly again.
If you are looking for a unique outdoor toy, then you may want to “give this one a shot”.
A great toy for kids 12 year old and up is the Razor Pocket Mod Electric Scooter. Kids will enjoy the freedom that this fun and safe electric scooter can bring.
The Razor Pocket Mod Miniature Euro Electric Scooter isn’t new this year, but it has been so popular on Amazon with so many great reviews for years, that I thought it was worth giving it a look today.

This scooters features include a retractable kickstand, variable-speed acceleration, a padded seat, and a built-in battery that travels for up to 10 miles on a single charge and up to 15 miles per hour. There’s a great little storage compartment underneath the seat to store a few things and it has a wall plug to charge the scooter so no messing with the hassle of taking out a battery to charge.
This scooter is recommended for ages 12 year old and older but many of the reviews on Amazon say their kids as young as 8 use it safely.
