Not sure how to convince your child to tear themselves away from that screen? Here’s a whole bunch of options to get them swinging, splashing and shaking off the couch potato!
1. Prettily painted teepee
This Nathalie Lete designed beauty is tip top of our teepee wish list. Available locally at Yogee Toys.
2. Fancy, schmancy designer swing
Admittedly this is not on the low-pricepoint end of the scale, but it’s pretty gorgeous and perfect inspiration for those of us who fancy an indoor playground at our place. This is by Sukha.
3. Macrame, all the way!
This handmade baby swing is not only extremely gorgeous, it’s ethically made AND comes in a variety of colours. It’s from Hang A Hammock.
4. Smile and splash with the fishies
This pool is 100 per cent cute AND 100 per cent cool. We’re snapping one up right this minute. It’s from Toys R Us. (Never, ever leave children unattended near this toy.)
5. Go fly a kite
You can snaffle a pair of colourful beauties at IKEA. Use them as cute decorations or head outside to catch the breeze.
6. Nautically-inspired swing
This simple, stylish swing is by EttyandBoo (they have other colours and prints, too!)
7. A skate swing! Wait. What?!
Is it a skateboard? Is it a swing? Well … it’s the kind of swing that makes every little skater happy. This cleverly designed prezzie is by the good folk at Skate Swing.
8. Wild thing rocking horses
