Added by robstone74 on Jul 10, 2014

With the age of technology, more and more children are growing up with games consoles, tablets and the television and staying away from the garden more and more.

Being able to get outdoors, have some tremendous fun, giggles but more importantly, receive some excellent exercise without them even thinking about it.

From a parents point of view, seeing their children have fun but have the peace of mind they are away from the dangers of the road is great.

Adding to this, we can remember how we loved these toys as many of them have stood the test of time and will do for many years to come.

Themed Sandbox

As children many of us enjoyed a day at the beach, playing in and out of the water but most of all, building sandcastles. Depending on age and imagination, the castles that could be built range from one bucket of sand with the shape of the bucket itself, right up to huge castles with their own corridors, that’s until the sea comes in and removes all the work involved.

With a garden sandpit, children can play for hours building up their own castles at home with a range of multi shaped buckets and spades with a themed sandcastle itself. Add in some water and dry sand becomes something children can shape into whatever they can think of.


Portable Football Net

Even if you have a small garden, a portable football net allows children to have a run around and score goals without having to resort to finding a local park to travel to. Obviously a larger the garden, the more fun to be had chasing each other around, trying to control the ball, weave round your opponents and score a goal.

Most football goals for the garden come as a metal frame with a strong net, with pegs to secure the net into the grass but also to make sure it does not fall over, giving it more stability. Who knows, your children maybe the next professional footballer.
