Summer, sun, sunshine: You don't need much to be happy. Although: Children's toys for outside should not be missing in the garden in order to be able to fully enjoy the summer.
We have put together a best of the outdoor games that no garden should be without. For really fast-paced fun outdoors, we also recommend the guides for children's bicycles, e-scooters, kick scooters and drift trikes.

Garden toy checklist
The toy should be appropriate for your child's age - that's the only way to make it really fun to play with.
Please consider: How many children are playing in the garden and which toys do they enjoy on their own and which are really fun for several children? In the case of children's swings (here for advice on buying children's swings), there are also double swings, for example, on which several swings can be mounted. A play tower with a slide and many other play options is also a perfect solution for several children.
Quality: The most beautiful toy idea is no fun in the long run if it is poorly made and only has a short lifespan. “Cheap” toys can also pose a safety hazard.
With toys made of plastic, make sure that the material is thick enough - "cheap" and thin material will not withstand the weather and the stress for long. Here, as is so often the case: if you buy cheap, you buy expensive.
Storage over the winter and protection from the weather play a major role in how long outdoor toys last. A suitable garden shed is recommended for storage.
So-called fall protection mats are very helpful in reducing the risk of injury with outdoor play equipment.
