WOKINGHAM, England, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
There is nothing quite like lighter nights, warmer weather and the smell of freshly mown grass to beckon us outside into the fresh air. It can however take a little more than the genial traits of Mother Nature to prise youngsters away from the television screen and their computer games and entice them into the great outdoors. Luckily for parents, help is at hand, with a myriad great outdoor toys, furniture and accessories available. Wokingham-based Born to Toddle provides a range of outdoor toys for kids which are all but guaranteed to coax even the most stubborn of youngsters away from their indoor comforts and into the infinitely healthier fresh air of the outdoors.
With the arrival of spring, barbecues are brought out of the garage and are given a dusting down, gardening utensils are unearthed from the back of the garden shed to be used with renewed vigour, and the children's sandpit, playhouses, slides and tricycles are brought down from the attic, much to the delight of our little ones, who have not set eyes on such tempting and attractive items since last autumn. Yes it's safe to say that similar to how adults can't seem to resist giddily inviting the whole street over for a barbecue at the first sign of spring, and how the gardener of the household can't help but reach for the garden shears on May Day, outdoor toys compel children to go outside.
As well as encouraging interaction with friends and siblings, outdoor children's toys inspire imaginary role play as well. Take, for example, Plum Products' Climbing Pyramid Wooden Play Centre, a large wooden play centre which has multiple features and which is suitable for ages 3 - 12 years. This fun and multi-activity play centre includes a large camouflaged secret play den area, which inspires imaginative role play - which has long been established as being a crucial element in children's intellectual and social development. An hour spent playing in an outdoor play centre with friends and siblings will help to develop your child's creative spirit.
Then of course there are the exercise benefits of children being outdoors in the fresh air. Outdoor toys can be a great way to help children burn off excess energy and get some valuable exercise. Toys such as balance bikes can not only encourage children into the garden but are also a cunning way to get your child to exercise, as well as improving coordination, strength and even confidence.
Being a clever way to get children outdoors to get all the unique benefits associated with playing in the open air, it is hardly surprising that year-in, year-out parents trawl through the outdoor toys available on the market with almost as much enthusiasm as the kids.
Born to Toddle specialises in providing quality and educational toys, furniture and accessories that are designed for encouraging adventure, excitement and development from 0 - 8 year olds. With a range of outdoor toys for children available on Born to Toddle, it shouldn't be too difficult to entice little ones outdoors this spring and summer.
