  18. Water Table! – EVERY outdoor area needs a water table if you have toddlers!! This one comes with toys for endless fun!
  19. Sprinkler Splash Play Mat – not your average sprinkler =)
  20. Sprinkler – just a normal sprinkler but it has these little worm characters that move around when it’s on!
  21. Light-Up Dinosaur Bubble Gun with Sounds – awesome because you can use it with the most popular bubble bottles!

SO. MANY. OUTDOOR. TOYS!!!!!!! I know there’s a lot but my suggestion would be to first stock up on a few favorites to start your outdoor toy collection from scratch. Then, make sure that you save this post because every month of summer, you can add 2-3 different things to your collection! Many of these toys grow with your kids {ie: the pool, basketball hoop and even the bubbles are fun for all ages!} but also, when they get new stuff it will be exciting!!

Just a thought: any one of these toys would make for an awesome summer birthday gift! Or even, an awesome winter birthday gift! I remember back to Brody’s 2nd birthday and some of my friends all went in on a bunch of outdoor toys for him. Even though his birthday was in December and it was full-fledged winter at the time, we loved that we got to bring out the gifts and put them to good use for the new season!! Xox
