Eichhorn outdoor toys - children's toys for the garden
Off to the garden - if you're lucky enough to have a patch of green in front of the house, you can give children lots of fun with exciting outdoor toys. Lots of exercise in the fresh air included. Whether outdoor swings, outdoor skill games or games of movement - there are a few things to consider when buying outdoor toys.
Why is outdoor toys so important for children?
Children need plenty of exercise every day - and preferably in the fresh air. There are plenty of opportunities to play at public playgrounds, but also on excursions. In your own garden, you can have even more fun with the right outdoor toys. There are suitable outdoor toys for every age group that optimally promote children's coordination, concentration and motor skills.
Promotion of motor skills
In the afternoon, a quick round in the garden - this is a good balance to daycare and school and at the same time promotes the motor skills of your child.
Strengthening of the immune system
Regular exposure to fresh air strengthens the immune system and reduces the likelihood of illness. Children should therefore go outside every day, no matter what the weather. With the right clothing and creative outdoor children's toys, playing is fun even in bad weather.
Toddlers and school children need a lot of exercise to learn and get rid of excess energy. With the right outdoor garden toys, a short exercise session is always possible.
Promotion of coordination
In addition, high-quality children's toys for outdoors promote coordination and dexterity - and in group games even social interaction, for example, when playing with parents, friends or siblings.
Last but not least, various children's toys for the garden can be used to encourage creativity while building and playing.
What kind of outdoor children's toys are suitable from what age?
Outdoor toys are available for different age groups - from babies to toddlers aged 3 and up, outdoor games for the garden are great fun. The age recommendations given by the manufacturers are not always 100 percent appropriate. Therefore, always orient yourself to the respective developmental stage of your child.
Outdoor toys for under 3 years old
For children under the age of three, simple outdoor toys are particularly suitable. For example, swings and toys that are not too demanding for children motor and physical. After swinging on one of the classic Eichhorn outdoor swings kids can relax on the comfortable children's sun chair. After a short break, energy is restored and the game can continue.
Outdoor toys from the age of 3
From the age of three, children often have better coordination and can try wooden garden toys that encourage climbing and playing - for example, toys such as rope ladders, gym sets or the popular Mikado are ideal for this age.
Tip: For older children is suitable outdoor toys for 7 years. For example, the popular game croquet, which offers a lot of fun together with friends.
What should be considered when buying outdoor children's toys?
You want to buy new toys for the garden? To ensure that your child plays safely and receives optimal support, the material properties of the toy are important in addition to the age recommendation.
Whether outdoor toys from 4 or for a younger child - the manufacturer's specification is important as a rough guide. Baby outdoor toys should not contain small parts that could be swallowed. Beads, marbles and small balls are therefore only suitable for older children.
Toys are developmentally beneficial when they appeal to the child's senses and encourage creative play. Whether concentration, dexterity or coordination - outdoor toys support children in their development in many ways.
High quality processing
Functional, safe and stable - outdoor toys must meet high requirements so that they last a long time. High-quality outdoor toys are made of robust materials that do not break down quickly, even under heavy use. The wood must not splinter or break.
To meet safety standards, it must also meet DIN standards and must not be contaminated with harmful substances. Plastics, paints, varnishes and impregnations that are harmful to children are taboo.
Tip: When attaching swings and rope ladders, make sure that they are securely fastened. Pay attention to the note on the maximum load capacity in kilograms.
Weather resistant or weatherproof
To protect your outdoor toys against influences such as rain, snow or sunlight, you should brush them with a layer of wood stain and always keep them dry in winter. This way, your child can benefit from their toys for a long time and learn how important it is to handle sensitive materials like wood responsibly.
